  • Taking your goals to put into your everyday life – putting your goals in your calendar

Episode 190: Creating An Awesome Summer

Episode 190: Creating An Awesome Summer

Summer is here!  Are you ready to make it the most awesome summer ever?  Talk about pressure, right?  How do you feel when you hear you only have 18 summers with your kids?  If you are like me, it causes anxiety (especially when you do the math to figure out how many more summers you have with them).

Not to worry!  In this episode, we are talking about the simple ways that you can plan an awesome summer full of memory making moments.  We are keeping it simple and doable….just as summer should be.

Action Items and Tips From the Show

  1. Identify what you and your family value from summertime.  Let those things drive your planning process.
  2. Create a summer bucket list.  What do you and your family members really want to do this summer?  What are those must do events?  It can be really simple stuff like go fishing or make smores.  Get everyone to share their ideas and put them down on paper.  I love using the large presentation paper with a sticky back so we can write big, write a lot, get creative, and then post it up in the house where we can see it all season long.  Here is the link to the one that we use.
  3. Think about your summer planning in terms of balance.  We talk about balance within our three pillars.  Faith, community and systems.
  • Faith:  How are you helping your kids grow spiritually this summer?  Summer is a great time for development and discovery so let’s have God be a big part of that.  Connect with your church on summer camps, day programs, or other activities.  Give them a summer reading plan or buy them a bible study.
  • Community:  How are you building a community for your kids?  I want my kids to have an awesome summer but that doesn’t mean that it’s by my side or that I have to do everything.  Are there family members or close friends that your kids can spend time with this summer?  
  • Systems:  Everyone’s kids are at different ages and have different schedules for summer, so I’m not going to deep dive into it here.  But if you want some ideas, be sure to follow me on Instagram and I’ll share some in my stories over there.

Overall, what are the goals that you have for your kids this summer?

Episode 185: Teaching Kids Healthy Friendships with Dr. Maylin Griffiths

Episode 185: Teaching Kids Healthy Friendships with Dr. Maylin Griffiths

Parenting can be hard to navigate especially when we think of all the things that we need to teach our kids in order to raise healthy adults.  Combine that with the big job of balancing everything else and things just get complicated.  To help simplify this (and inspire us), we are joined by Dr. Maylin Griffiths who is a wife, mother, and clinical child psychologist.  In this episode, we are talking about how to teach our kids how to make healthy relationships/friendships.  

About Our Guest

Dr. Maylin is a wife, mother, and clinical child psychologist.  She spent the past 12 years working with children and families in inpatient units, residential settings, and outpatient care.  Through her clinical work, she discovered everyone is really just doing the best they can for the children they care the most about.  Through her personal experiences as a mom, she discovered that parenting is HARD.  Really Hard.  What she also discovered is that being PROACTIVE rather than REACTIVE has made a huge difference in her confidence as a parent and in her relationship with her children.  Dr. Maylin developed Raising Character as a way of integrating clinical knowledge and proactive parenting with the belief that raising children should be fun, enjoyable, and memorable. She’s on a mission to raise children we’ll admire as adults.

Action Items and Tips From the Show

  • Let’s talk values for this:
    • What are your family’s values?
    • What are your child’s values?
    • Why are these values important to you and your child?
  • Next, let’s talk about behaviors:
    • What behaviors show these values?
    • Example if kindness is a value – what behaviors show kindness?
    • Example: if integrity is a value, then telling the truth is a behavior.
  • Finally, let’s link these two together:
    • We seek relationships with those who have similar values to us
    • We show our values in our behaviors
    • Let’s look for friends that show these behaviors we value
  • When our child’s friend’s do not seem healthy we can ask:
    • “Are your friend’s behaviors consistent with values that are important to you”
  • I find it’s best not to use force and to encourage choice to get the desired behavior
    • So encourage your child to make the best choices
    • Versus forcing them to not be friends with someone
    • Encouraging statements versus control and force
