Podcast 184: Five Ways to Keep Calm When Your Kids Are Pushing Your Buttons

Isn’t it just so adorable when you tell your toddler not to do something and then they look you dead in the eye and do it anyway? No? More like infuriating? Sometimes you swear they do things just to push your buttons. And you’re not alone with that notion.

Inspired by a recent coaching session with our Balance VIP community, this week’s podcast episode is all about reacting calmly when your kids toe the line (or let’s be real here, jump right over it). JoAnn and Brie share personal tales about some of their recent rough days, what to look for in yourself when you feel those buttons getting pushed, and how connection can be the cure.

Listen in to learn 5 very practical tips and insights on how to handle those all-too-frequent situations where it feels like your kids are intentionally pushing your buttons!

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast, you’ll learn:

  • The different motivations or needs behind your child’s behavior, beyond trying to provoke you.  
  • How important self-awareness and taking a step back to assess your feelings about the situation are BEFORE reacting.
  • That you’re not alone in this crazy journey and that you can get through it with humor and grace!
