The Parenting Coach Podcast with Crystal

S05|26 - A Parenting Story: How One Mom Decreased Her Kids Meltdowns and Increased Connection

Jan 09, 2023

Wouldn’t it be nice if our kids did exactly what we wanted, when we wanted them to? THEN parenting would finally be easy. THEN we could show up in the way we want in the world… but that’s not how it works. We can’t change them, no matter how hard we try. We can change US though, and there is SO much power in that. Tune in to this client story where we dig into all the changes that happened for my client and her husband as we coached together- and what changes she incidentally noticed in her kids, as she stopped trying to change THEM.

On the podcast today:

  • The journey of my client and what spurred her into looking for parenting support
  • How she desired an even deeper connection with her kids, and to parent differently than both her and her husband had been raised, but struggled to implement what she desired
  • Getting on the same page as her partner isn’t what she thought it was (emotional connection and support, more than the same beliefs about parenting)
  • How her kids meltdowns decreased in intensity and frequency, as connection increased, when she focussed on what was in her power to change (hint: it wasn’t her kids that started the change)


Coaching has changed my own life, and the lives of my clients. More connection, more healing, more harmony, and peace in our most important relationships. It increases confidence in any parenting challenges and helps you be the guide to teach your children the family values that are important to you- in clear ways. If you feel called to integrate this work in a deeper way and become a parenting expert, that’s what I’m here for.
