You're listening to Voices of Your Village, this is episode 204. I got to hang out with author Lori Gottlieb of "Maybe You Should Talk To Someone." One of my favorite books that I read in 2019, and she shares in this episode about how to process emotions as an adult. What does this look like, to do the emotion processing work as an adult. How do we navigate that when we have kiddos around us too. This was such a fun conversation for me and I hope that you enjoy it, and also go snag her book! It is so good. In the new year we are going to be doing a free self-regulation challenge for adults. So how to regulate our...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village, this is episode 203. In this episode I got to hang out with my friend Xavier Dagba to chat about setting boundaries with adults, as adults. Gosh this is a hot one as we come into some holiday time for folks, a lot of family time, but really it's a hot one for all the time. What does this look like? What comes up for us from our childhood, and our social programming and our patterns and habits when we set boundaries with other adults.

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...

Why Kids Lie and How to Respond

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.

 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...

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...

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...
