Whole call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/11November/tsg-sc-11-25-20WHOLEEDITED.mp3 Question: I have heard you say you have a good system to confront lying. I notice our kids do this about technology. “I haven’t had any screen time today.” When they have obviously had screen time. Also, I have a teenage daughter who is struggling with lying but will not go into her whole story here. Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/11November/tsg-sc-11-25-20-Q1.mp3 if their lying ever works it was a success and they will keep trying, and they will assume they just need to get better at lying. it’s better to tell a person they are lying when they are not than to let things slide when you’re not sure. you have to be consistent in correcting them every time. use the lying skill set i came up with. Question: I have been putting my 2 year old and 4 year old in calm down time but I feel I …

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/10October/TSG_SC_10-7-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Hello Nicholeen, You mention journaling a fair amount for your own self-government, as a keepsake for your posterity, for calm, for your children’s self-reflection. Can you please talk about how you make it a habit for Mom and what you include in your journals? Do you have a system for journaling or certain questions you ask yourself as prompts each time you sit down to write in your journal? I continually try to journal. I start writing in a lovely new notebook trying to write a well-thought out new entries and then life happens, I’m exhausted by the end of the day, weeks go by and I realize I hadn’t written in my journal since I began writing in it. All the while that beautiful floral journal adorns my desk. I’m hoping journaling can help me become more self-governed, but if I can’t seem to find …

I thought it was manipulation, but now I’m not so sure. Thoughts? Our 15-year-old son’s room isalwaysmessy.

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/10October/TSG_SC_10-21-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Thank you for the advice last week! My daughter is doing much better with allowing us to teach her. My question this week is in regards to having her go to sleep on her own. She is 8, and we have been putting her to bed by staying in the room with her and lying in her bed until she goes to sleep. We’ve done this since she was a baby. This was probably not the best decision, and, at this point, it is not teaching her any skills for getting to sleep on her own. I have hesitated in making a change because I am not sure where to start. She has a lot of anxiety at bedtime and tends to have racing negative thoughts that pop up when she slows down and tries to go to sleep. I feel like we need to …

We do have one re-occurring challenge though….when my we try to teach her new skills…like kicking a soccer ball or folding the laundry, etc. She does not want to listen to us and says that she wants to do it her way. In fact, she will try to take over and teach us her way. Most of the things that we are trying to teach her are just every day skills. On the other hand, she follows specific instructions……like, “I need for you to go make your bed….or I need for you to start your homework.” She has always been resistant to being taught ever since she was very small, …
