Greater Good Live
Dr. Christine Carter and Nurse Rona Renner give busy parents tips for raising happy children and leading more joyful lives as parents.
Most parents yell at their kids at one time or another, but as stress and exhaustion increase over the holidays, some parents yell more. Rona gives us her tips and tricks for yelling less.
The holidays are so fun, but many kids get really out of whack. How to manage moodiness and exhaustion at this time of year.
Is your child having a hard time forgiving a classmate for hurting his or her feelings? If you’ve got a grudge-holding or revenge-seeking kiddo, this podcast is for you! Rona and I discuss foundational skills that lead to forgiveness. Part one of two.
A new slew of tips from Rona and I for fostering gratitude—and combating entitlement—in our children.
Are your weekends relaxing? Do you find time to rest and rejuvenate? If your answer was no, no, and no: you aren’t alone. Many parents today—myself included!—find themselves rushing from one thing to the next over the weekend. Rona and I give tips for making the weekends more enjoyable.
Feel like you no longer have any time for your friends? While you certainly aren’t alone—especially among parents—friendships can profoundly affect our happiness for the better. Rona and I discuss strategies for keeping adult friendships alive and well.
Is your kid a bully? Even if you’ve taught your children right from wrong, sometimes the kids of kind and compassionate parents can still be…mean. Rona and I discuss strategies for raising children who don’t bully others.
Rona and I take another listener questions, this time from Nina, who writes: “Do you have any tips for handling ‘back talk’ from kids? We are at our wits’ end with our 8-year-old boy and not quite sure how to respond to his words and reactions. I definitely take it personally and feel like it’s my fault he [talks back to me], but he tells me he learns these things at school. Sometimes he can be a complete angel and then other times the complete opposite.”
Rona and I will talk about online safety and ways to create happiness for our children in these social networks sites.
