  Why are we always compelled to start a new year with a list of resolutions that even a saint would be hard-pressed to keep up with? If there’s one thing every good parent is good at, it’s over-extending! We’re all about the #parentgoals! We are so happy to be starting the new year with you, our beautiful, caring community of parents.

Abigail talks about all the quick-tip strategies out there and why they might work at first but why so often they fail in the long-term. We look at what children might be communicating through hitting, whether it’s a (somewhat misguided) attempt at play or as an expression as deep-rooted fear, and Elle admits completely misreading some of her child’s hitting behaviors.  Understanding Hitting and other Defiant Behavior And although we don’t encourage hitting, we talk about why parenting the punch itself doesn’t actually ease the problem but instead pushes the feelings causing a child to hit to one side. They may disappear for now, but they (and the hitting) will soon be back again.  So, we talk about what parenting the problem and not the punch actually means: Get wise to why your […]
