You're listening to Voices of Your Village this is episode 198. In this episode I got to hang out with Michaela Boehm, she's a psychologist and really dives into connection and intimacy and spirituality and we were chatting about what that looks like in parenthood. And into things like is six weeks realistic ever? Or what does it look like to connect with someone at the end of the day and you've had a human on your body all day long. This episode was so requested and she is, Michaela is incredible. I loved this episode and loved my conversation with her and I'm so excited to bring it to you today.

How to respond instead of spanking

 00:00:00   Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village, this is episode 195. In this episode we're chatting about how to respond instead of spanking. There's tons of research out there that talks about why spanking isn't productive and how it can actually breed some pretty gnarly things down the road and patterns of abuse for children who were  spanked, then repeating patterns of abuse in adulthood. However, the reality is, that a lot of folks who are turning to spanking are doing so because they're reacting in the moment and they don't know what else to do. And they're afraid of a behavior being on going and repeating itself. And all of the "what ifs?" that...

00:00:04    Alyssa

You're listening to Voice of Your Village, this is episode 193. In this episode we're chatting about why kids lie, what's the driver behind it, and how do we respond in a way that's emotionally supportive and truly gets at the root of it. For many of us lying can bring up triggers from our own childhood, social programing, and maybe what we learned about lying or experiences we had around lying. We'll chat about how this might come up and what to do about those parts, and how to tend to those parts of yourself so that you can show up for the tiny human in front of you. Alright folks, let's dive in.

Common Toddler Food Challenges

 

 00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 187. I got to hang out with Megan from Feeding Littles to chat about common food challenges for toddlers. I actually just had a friend reach out and say, oh my goodness, it's like a switch flipped my kiddo turned two, and all of a sudden, all the foods he loved, he will not eat. And it's only meatballs and waffles. And specifically, party cake waffles. We have all navigated this with kiddos, where they love this food, and the next day they cannot stand it. And so how do we navigate this jazz? You submitted your questions, and I got to throw them at Megan one by one. I'm so jazzed to...

Body Exploration

 

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 185. I got to hang out with Rebecca Koon from Everybody Talks and it was so much fun. We are chatting all about body exploration and what to expect from the tiny humans. What is normal typical behavior? And how do we respond? What might come up for us? Maybe from our childhood or our cultural norms and what do we do with all those feelings, our big adult feelings around this jazz because it can be really uncomfortable if we are trying to raise kids in a way that's different than we were raised. Maybe there were shame or judgment or simply silence around body exploration for you culturally...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 179. In this episode, I got to hang out with Dr. Rashmi Bismark, you might know her book Finding Om, it's a kids book that I love. We chatted about mindfulness in the tiny humans and how to support this. And what does this look like, I feel like it's real 'buzzwordy' word these days. And so, we broke it down and looked at how to truly cultivate mindfulness and support kiddos with these tools, it was like a hanging out with an old pal. She was so fun to chat with and really in alignment with our approach here at Seed, and bringing awareness to our everyday life, slowing down and noticing. And...

Letting go of control

  

0:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village, this is episode 178. This is a rebroadcast of episode 113. If this past year, 15 months has taught us anything. It's how little we are actually in control. Yet we often are trying to assert control to feel safe when we feel out of control, we feel unsafe, and most of us live with this illusion that we can control all the things. When I originally recorded this episode, it was pre-Covid. And I think it's more important now than ever. As we've all had a light shine on how little we do control and what we can and cannot control and what it means to relinquish that desire for control and allow for the...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 177. I got to hang out with my friend. Mr. Chazz. We met over on Instagram and it was so fun to get to hang out and have a real conversation. We dove into extrinsic versus intrinsic motivation and what this looks like to build intrinsic motivation with the tiny humans. I love how Mr. Chazz keeps it real about what the real world looks like. And the fact that there is extrinsic motivators all around us, we see rewards all around us and how this plays out in our work with the tiny humans, do me a favor. When you're tuning in, will you at take a screenshot and share it over on Instagram? Let me...
