In today’s episode, we're talking about navigating the toddlerhood phase, and how we, as parents, need to shift our focus and adjust our expectations.
My guest, Sara Whaley, is the CEO and owner of Joyful Toddler Parenting. Sara is a parent coach for toddler parents, and a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst - she's based out of the USA, where she lives with her partner and two toddlers.
Sara and I discuss everything from the social media evolution of ‘gentle parenting’, to the most common ways we overestimate and underestimate our toddlers. Sara clearly breaks down how factors such as inadequate self-care, burnout, and mom guilt can get in the way of us parenting the way we’d like to.
As she says in our interview, “Toddlers are hard. They just are.” But Sara’s goal is to help all parents find the joy in this stage, despite its challenges.
