A podcast for conscious parents who drop the f-bomb. A lot.

We are the overthinkers, the dreamers, and the doers. We are parenting in a radically different way than those before us. But our divine vision gets blurry cause...OMG...kids can be such a pain in the ass. Let's work from the inside out, in a whole brain, whole body way to mitigate the crappy behavior. Not just with our kids but with ourselves. So you can be the parent you envision.

Hosted by Jamie Glowacki, Author of "Oh Crap! Potty Training" and the soon to be released title, "Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler: Tackling These Crazy Awesome Years―No Time-outs Needed"

Apr 12, 2019

Welcome to the first episode of Oh Crap!, a no-nonsense guide to parenting young children by Jamie Glowacki. Jamie is the author of Oh Crap! Potty Training and the soon-to-be-released Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler, having worked with children in the 2 to 5 age range for over two decades. She’s found that parents of toddlers expect far too much academically and developmentally from their children in this period whilst underestimating what they’re capable of, making it a turbulent time for parent and kid alike. Jamie aims to give you the tools to help get you through this period and make the most of it.

 

In this first episode, Jamie discusses her credentials, the most optimal parenting style for reigning in and raising up toddlers, and how to best deal with your kid when they’re not being their best.



The Finer Details of This Episode:

 

  • Defining “threenager” and why toddlers are surprisingly similar to adolescents.
  • Guiding vs. governing parenting and why the latter is more effective than the former for toddling.
  • Parent the child in front of you rather than the one you wish you had.
  • Making sure to chastise your child’s behavior, not them as a person.
  • Mitigating your kid’s more assholish moments.
