When Your Child is Craving Attention with Alanna G.

Alanna’s 5 year old son has trouble controlling his anger. When he wants something, he wants it, and he’ll ask and ask until he gets it. When he doesn’t get it, he’ll throw a temper tantrum and sometimes act out physically in his anger. In this episode, Alanna and Sue talk about what could be behind his temper tantrums.


When You Need Alone Time
with Angela E.

Angela’s family, including her three daughters of different ages, have been living on top of each other for a year (since COVID started), and their frustration is spilling over. Sometimes they get along great, but often they’ll get on each other’s nerves. Emotions explode and stress ensues. In this episode, Angela and Sue discuss how to deal healthily and effectively with this situation.


When to Let Them Fight it Out
with Isabelle Bart

Isabelle’s kids, a 12 year old girl and a 10 year old boy, get on each other’s nerves. He knows just the buttons to push and she overreacts when he pushes them. In this episode, Isabelle and Sue talk about the steps she can take to solve this problem, and that it’s not her fault or failure as a mother, it’s natural and normal for people who love each other to get on each other’s nerves.
