Have you ever missed out because of procrastination or that thought, “I can never do _____.” Self-sabotage is a universal behavior, even for those of us who are high achievers in some areas. In this episode, I talk to neuropsychologist Dr. Judy Ho about why we do this, and how to stop.

If you enjoyed this episode, and it inspired you in some way, I’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Take a screenshot of you listening on your device, post it to your Instagram stories, and tag me @mindfulmamamentor.

Takeaways:

  1. Self-sabotage happens when our natural avoidance of threat drive is out of balance.
  2. If we never learned healthy coping skills from our parents, stress can hamstring us.
  3. The path away from self-sabotaging behaviors starts with our awareness of our thoughts.

Dr. Judy is a triple-board certified clinical and forensic neuropsychologist with a private practice, a tenured professor at Pepperdine University, author, co-host of The Doctors, and host of the SuperCharged Life podcast.

Have you ever wondered if you are parenting the “right” way? Our podcast guest Jen Lumanlan did and decided that she would go to the research to figure out how to parent her child. She discovered what was worth paying attention to and what wasn’t, and it allowed her to let go of some core tenets of parenting.

Takeaways: 

  1. When we understand why our children resist things, then we can discover solutions.
  2. The right way to get your child to eat their vegetables.
  3. What we think of as “bad behavior” are our children’s unskillful attempts to meet their own needs.

Do you know that you are not to blame for your triggers and harmful reactions? Mark Wolynn, author of It Didn’t Start With You, explains how traumas and harmful patterns pass on from one generation to the next. We also talk about the power of mindfulness and other modalities to help us heal these hurts for good.

Takeaways:

  1. By rejecting our parents, we share or repeat their life patterns.
  2. Trauma stays within families' genetic code, changing the way genes express.
  3. To transform trauma, we must practice the feelings & sensations of positive experiences.

Mark Wolynn is Director of the Family Constellation Institute in San Francisco and the author of It Didn't Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle (Viking/Penguin), winner of the 2016 Nautilus Book Award in psychology.

The most important quality I want for my kids during these difficult times is probably what you want: resilience. Our kids need the capacity to overcome hard times because we cannot (and would not want to) protect them from every single one of life’s difficulties. In this episode, I talk to author and psychologist Chris Willard about raising resilience.

Takeaways:

  1. The younger your child is, the more contagious your emotions are.
  2. The best practice for a kid in a meltdown is your mindfulness practice as a parent.
  3. Resilient kids have both a stable, loving adult and responsibility.

Dr. Christopher Willard (PsyD) has been practicing meditation for 20 years and has led hundreds of workshops around the world, with invitations to more than two dozen countries. He is the author of Child’s Mind (2010) Growing Up Mindful (2016) Raising Resilience (2017) and ten other books for parents, professionals, and children. He teaches at Harvard Medical School. On the personal side, he enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, reading and writing, and being a father.

None of us knew how hard it was going to be as a parent; we mess up constantly. When we respond to ourselves with harsh criticism and judgment, we leave ourselves feeling helpless and incapable. Even though it can feel strange, the practice of self-compassion is essential to becoming a more mindful parent. My guest today is Dr. Susan M. Pollak, author of Self-Compassion for Parents.

Takeaways:

  1. We can tolerate failure better and have more resilience with self-compassion.
  2. 95% of us grow up with imperfect parents.
  3. “If you lose it, you can use it.”

Susan M. Pollak, MTS, EdD, is a longtime student of meditation and yoga who has been integrating the practices of meditation into psychotherapy since the 1980s. Dr. Pollak is co-founder and teacher at the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion at Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Health Alliance. She is the author of the new book, Self-Compassion for Parents: Nurture Your Child by Caring for Yourself.

So many of us are concerned about what will happen (or not happen) with school this fall. Is it safe? What will the schedule be like? The only thing certain is that it will be different. Perhaps we need to broaden our definition of what it means to do school. Perhaps learning could travel outdoors? I talk to Megan Fitzgerald, co-founder of Tinkergarten, about how to support kids best in these times.

Takeaways:

  1. Outdoors is a safer place for kids to be social and learn right now.
  2. We can set up our home environments to optimize independent play.
  3. We can teach kids to manage risks playfully.

Meghan Fitzgerald alongside her husband, Brian founded Tinkergarten. Meghan previously worked as an Elementary School Principal and teacher as well as a Math/Science Specialist.

When our lives are busy, we don’t often see how wasteful our habits can be. But our kids care about the environment and are often passionate about taking steps to protect our planet.

Takeaways:

  1. Crayons can be a big garbage problem or a gift for in-need communities.
  2. Small steps can make a big difference.
  3. Kids care and want to take action to help reverse global warming.

With a degree in Sociology from UCLA Sheila has successfully been growing her nonprofits since 2011. She lives in LA with her husband and 2 children.

40-50% of couples will get divorced. How can we do it better? Loss of a relationship can be a major trauma, and when you add kids into the mix and co-parenting with your ex… well, there’s just a lot to work out there. How does one separate, be mindful of your kids, and be true to your own values? Radhika Lakhani, a divorce attorney and mindfulness teacher, talks to us about a new path forward.

Takeaways:

  1. The legal process pushes us to find external solutions, which is disempowering.
  2. Alternative dispute resolution focuses on each party's needs. Mindful resolution goes further to ask why.
  3. We must start the way we want to finish.

Radhika Lakhani is a family lawyer and mother whose mission it is to transform families in post-separation and divorce by sharing powerful tools that consciously move them from high conflict to peace and heart-centered co-parenting.

The protests around the world after the murder of George Floyd have shown parents that we need to be talking to our kids about racial inequality. But how do we do it? Many white parents feel awkward and uncomfortable bringing it up at all. In this episode, Marietta Collins and Ann Hazzard, both child psychologists and co-authors of the book, Something Happened In My Town, share with us about how to talk about racial inequality with kids.

Takeaways:

  1. Little kids can understand the concepts of racism and fairness.
  2. You are going to say the wrong thing—that’s okay. Still talk about it.
  3. Start with questions: “Why do you think that might happen?”

Ann Hazzard, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist, formerly on the faculty at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.  She is a co-author of Something Happened in Our Town:  A Child's Story about Racial Injustice (Magination Press, 2018).

Since the #MeToo movement and growing feminism, we’ve been very interested in how to empower women. But what about the other half of the population? We, as parents, need to take a look at how we are raising our boys to either be complicit in the “locker room mentality,” or to take a stand against it.

Takeaways:

  1. The “lockerroom mindset” hurts everybody. Men give up part of their humanity.
  2. Boys want to know what it takes to be a man. 
  3. We need to talk to boys. They take our silence as approval of the status quo.

If you are the parent of a daughter, you’ve likely been subjected to a comment like, “just wait until she’s a teenager!” Today’s podcast guest, Sil Reynolds, co-author (with her teen daughter) of Mothering & Daughtering, pushes back against that outdated way of thinking. Think of her as the “daughter whisperer,” because she teaches us mindful ways of connecting with our tweens and teens authentically. 

Takeaways:

  1. What behavior issues—in toddlers and teens—really mean.
  2. Preteens and adolescents need us just as much or more than ever.
  3. Our cultural narrative about teen girls is untrue and often dangerous.

Sil Reynolds is a nurse practitioner, psychotherapist, mother, and mothering coach. She is the co-author, with her daughter Eliza, of "Mothering and Daughtering: Keeping Your Bond Strong Through the Teen Years", and the host of We Thrive TV, a monthly vlog. The mother-daughter duo have taught sold-out workshops nation-wide for thousands of mothers and their preteen and teen daughters for the past 15 years, and offer an online course, The Mothering Course, for mothers of preteen and teen daughters.
