Dear Friends, I've written 55 short (2-4 pages ), easy to read, insightful chapters to help you make more sense of the children you love. The insight I offer is firmly rooted in developmental science and shared from the heart. By better understanding children's behaviour you'll naturally begin to feel empowered to align your parenting actions with your heartfelt intentions. Here are a few words from chapter 28. The stories I share refer to children between ages 0-7years but the insight offered is applicable to people of all ages because we all have an inner child. Countdown days to launch: 27 🚀 ✨ With love, Bridgett ❤️ • • • #parenting #lookwithlove #shiftyourparentingperception #seewithyoursoul #lookwithlovebridgett #parentingwithintention #connection #youngchildren #nurturingchildren #whatchildrenNEEDyoutoknow #lookwithlovelittleones #mindfulparenting #neufeldinstitute #DrGordonNeufeld #raisingchildren #preschoolers365 #bridgettmiller #bridgettmillerwords #consciousparenting #positiveparenting #gentleparenting #peacefulparenting #connectedparenting #respectfulparenting #attachmentparents #consciouscommunication #motherhood #fatherhood #parenthood

Many people said “2020 is going to be the best year yet!” To say that things haven’t gone as planned would be an understatement. . But honestly I think they were right. . Change is hard but beautiful in its own way. . What blessings have you experienced this year? . For me I have been blessed with more time to read, more time in nature, more time with my family and more time with God ❤️ . . . #lightinthedarkness #bestillandknow #holdontohope #donotbeafraid #bethelightinthedarkness #ibelieveinchrist #findjoyinthejourney #coronavirus #comeuntochrist #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdaythoughts #thywillbedone #godstiming #trustgodsplan #faithingod #hearhim #sharegoodness #faithoverfear #godhasaplan #godisincontrol #toddlermamma #raisinglittles #momoflittles #raisingchildren #newmommy #simplemotherhood

Baby won't eat _____. Complete the sentence!⠀ ⠀ For my daughter, it was kiwi.⠀ ⠀ It's so frustrating with they don't want to try a new (or not new ) food. It can get really discouraging after you've offered it time and time again. You feel like you've done everything creative to get them to try it and you just want to give up. Maybe you've tried pressuring them to eat it or tried reverse psychology ("great, more for mommy" ) but it's not working.⠀ ⠀ Here are some tips:⠀ ⠀ ✅Start with a tiny amount⠀ ⠀ ✅Give with other things they do like⠀ ⠀ ✅Ask for a piece if you notice they haven't tried it (maybe they'll pass you a piece... Win! )⠀ ⠀ ✅And more importantly - keep it NO pressure.⠀ ⠀ If you're ready to take the "no pressure" approach to the next level, or trying it for the first time, pick up my free phrase guide to help you get started with confidence.⠀ ⠀ ✨Click the link in my bio to get your copy of "3 Respectful Phrases to Beat Mealtimes with Confidence", what are you waiting for?!✨⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #foodbattle #pickyourbattles #raisehealthykids #raisingboys #raisinggirls #raisingkids #raisingdaughters #raisingchildren #raisingtinyhumans #healthyrelationshipwithfood #healthyeater #healthychildren #postpartumdepression#momstruggles #momstruggle #millenialmom #millenialmoms #letthembechildren #toddlertantrums #strongfeelings #whatkidssay #shitmykidsays #keepitsimplestupid #parenting101 #smartparenting #postpartumanxiety #postpartumsupport #postpartumnutrition #postpartummom#mombloggersofig

I'm more concerned about the emotional consequences of all this social distancing rather than the academic ones...make sure your kids bathe everyday, talk to their friends, step outside for air, read, listen to music, and have some fun...our job is to make them feel safe and secure...the best way to do this is to implement a simple routine...for example, morning routine (brush your teeth ) afternoon routine (check in with your friends and schoolwork ) and evening routine (take a bath ). Keep the routine simple...and make a routine...it'll make the day more meaningful. #mindfulparenting #parenting #parenthood #parentingtips #parenting101 #parentingadvice #parentinggoals #familygoals #childdevelopment #raisingchildren #raisingtoddlers #raisingteens #raisingtweens #healthyparenting #healthykids #parentingteens #parentingtoddlers #parentingtweens #covid19andkids #parentingduringcovid19 #homeschooling #emotionalwellbeing

The way you choose to look at situations, having a positive attitude, gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you. . . . . . .

Schema. Het grote meisje op links is blij. We hebben een schema per dag op de deur hangen, waarop staat welke taken er gedaan moeten worden. Ze bepaalt zelf wanneer ze wat doet en kan zelf afvinken welke schooltaken ze heeft gedaan. Zo ✔️ ze in no time iedere ochtend al haar taakjes af. En kunnen we daarna fijn naar buiten. Stiekem hoopt ze dat school niet meer open gaat en ze voortaan thuis mag blijven. Het schema was een mooie spiegel. Ik heb iets tegen schema’s. Ik ging er vanuit dat zij dat ook had. Maar wat blijkt ze vindt de autonomie heel fijn. Het zelf kunnen bepalen wanneer je welke taken maakt doet haar goed. In twee uur is ze met alles klaar en komt ze met een triomfantelijke snoet melden dat het stomme werk klaar is. Dus schema dank je wel.

"Not a leaf falls but that He knows it." (6:59 ) Second session of our tree study unit. For this session we learned that there are two types of trees deciduous and evergreen (I am learning so much with the kids aswell ), then we went on a walk to try and identify some local trees using a tree identification sheet. We also did an activity sorting the different leaves into the correct category of deciduous or evergreen by using the mini usborne book Trees to Spot'. We also revised the different seasons and the effect they have on trees and made an agamohraph craft which we downloaded from @easypeasyandfun website, a real fun craft to make. #homeed #homeschooling #homeschoolmama #muslimhomeschool #islamichomeschool #homeeducationuk #naturestudy #treestudy #childrenandnature #kidscrafts #naturecrafts #raisingchildren #raisingkids #twinklresources

Everyone has an opinion on how you should educate and parent your children. Both online and offline we are bombarded with parenting and homeschooling advice. A constant and never ending stream of information. ⁣ ⁣ There have been significant changes in the parenting and homeschooling realm. The information can be super useful but it can also make you second- guess your decisions as a parent and drown out your own voice. Have you felt like this before? ⁣ ⁣ I've been working with parents through private coaching during this crisis and more than ever parents are feeling overwhelmed. They are grateful for all the resources and information becoming available but feel like they don't have the energy to absorb or implement any of it. Does this sound familiar to you? ⁣ ⁣ Mama, tune into your own voice. It's there! Align to your truth. As a coach I help parents transform their parenting, homeschool and build wholesome relationships with their children. However I will never tell you how to parent or educate your children because you know best. ⁣ ⁣ So slow down, catch a breath. Take a break and focus on what you and your children need.⁣ How do you make time and space to tune into your own voice? ⁣ 💕 ⁣ #parentingduringapandemic #transformingparenting #transformingmotherhood #motheringcommunity #mumtomumsupport #holisticparenting #handinhandparenting #handinhandsupport #muslimparenting #parentingmuslims #muslimmotherhood #muslimparenthood #islamicparenting #propheticparenting #raisingchildren #raisingmuslims #raisingminimuslims #raisingbelievers #parenteducator #muslimparentcoach #homeschoolcoach #educationcoach #earlyyearsexpert #muslimpublicspeaker #parentingcoach #conciousparentingrevolution #conciousparentcoach #transformativeparentcoach #nurturinglearners

More than ever our children need us to help them feel safe, seen and secure. ⁣ ⁣ Physically and emotionally safe, seen and secure. A frightened child needs someone to invite him or her to CONNECT. ⁣ ⁣ Have you noticed regressive behaviour in your children? In these challenging times children will regress more than adults and the younger the child, the more likely regression will happen. ⁣ ⁣ Have you noticed change in behaviour? Seeking connection. ⁣ ⁣ Have you noticed your child constantly seeking reassurance? ⁣ ⁣ Have you noticed your child needing you more and displaying "clingy tendencies"? ⁣ ⁣ Or perhaps you've noticed they're starting to display signs of withdrawal? ⁣ ⁣ Behaviour is a distress signal. At the root of every tantrum and power struggle are unmet needs. But if you focus on the behaviour, you won't see the pain. They need your warmth, connection and gentle direction.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #parentingduringapandemic #transformingparenting #transformingmotherhood #motheringcommunity #mumtomumsupport #holisticparenting #handinhandparenting #handinhandsupport #muslimparenting #parentingmuslims #muslimmotherhood #muslimparenthood #islamicparenting #propheticparenting #raisingchildren #raisingmuslims #raisingminimuslims #raisingbelievers #parenteducator #muslimparentcoach #homeschoolcoach #educationcoach #earlyyearsexpert #muslimpublicspeaker #parentingcoach #conciousparentingrevolution #conciousparentcoach #transformativeparentcoach #nurturinglearners

A couple of years ago, I read the quote by L R Knost on what our job is, what my job is, and I nod, agree, and then give a deep sigh. Not because I disagree. I don’t, not at all. I agree wholeheartedly! The sigh comes more from having met so many people – in person, or via their writings, articles, blog posts, or through their social media presence, tweets, Facebook status updates and the likes – who seem to think the opposite. People who state “It’s a tough world and if kids don’t get knocked around a bit – metaphorically at least – during their upbringing and time in school, they will not know what hit them when they grow up and join ‘the real world’ as adults“. Maybe not said in those exact words, but definitely sending that message. And I simply do not believe that is the way towards a more loving and peaceful world. On the contrary. And for me, the trick is this: I cannot raise my children to be more loving and wholehearted if I am cruel and heartless. Again – kids (and everyone else as well, I dare say ) do as we do, not as we say. It’s time to walk the talk. For real. Because I want to do my job, I want to be a part of making the world a little less cruel and heartless, and more loving and peaceful. But how? How do I do that? How do I act lovingly? What is wholehearted action? How do I show up in the world, lovingly and wholeheartedly? I think I might write down a few bullet points for loving and wholehearted respectively, translating the fluffy words into actual activities (actions, words, gestures ). Then I can look within to see if I am walking my talk, or not. What do you think, are you? #quote #LRKnost #wholehearted #kids #parenting #upbringing #childhood #loving #peaceful #lovingworld #raisekids #raisingchildren #raisingkids #children #walkthetalk #showupintheworld #actions #gestures #words #lookwithin

To be fair, no age is recommended and this was way before Covid-19 #salockdown . ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ There's truth to the words though. Children will always remember how we make them feel when we address them.

Sure, I can do it. I know how. I’ve done it before. . As Moms, we are programmed to give and give and give and serve all the people and do all the things. . .

“Bye dad, don’t get shooted.”⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I remember the first time we sent Jeff off to work as an officer and that is what my then 3 year old said. 😳 I was totally taken aback, but quickly realized he didn’t think about it like we did. He didn’t really understand that dad has a dangerous job, only that he has a gun and that was “cool”.⁣ ⁣ He wants to play with his flashlight and badge when he gets home, and Emma could care less about anything except daddy hugs and kisses before he leaves for the day…and I hope that it’s a long time before they understand it more deeply.⁣ ⁣ Recently an officer was killed at a local department 🖤💙🖤 and it puts everything at the forefront in my head. My anxiety is HIGH when he goes back to work for the week; all I can do is hope he stays safe, trust his training and fellow officers, and now cross my fingers that he doesn’t come into contact with anyone sick with COVID and bring it home to us. 🙏🏻⁣ ⁣ I shared my anxieties with my team this morning and am so grateful for their love, support, and connection. Knowing I’m not alone, that we’ve got each other’s backs even if we’re separated by distance, it makes a world of difference. Grateful for my work-at-home-job and the strong women it has brought into my life, now more than ever. 🙌🏻❤️⁣ ⁣ Know that if your anxiety is high too, you aren’t alone. Reach out if you need someone, I’m here and WE are here to help.

👉🏼For all things young child and mommy mental health related, please follow @southbaymommyandme ⁣ ⁣ 💝To celebrate V-Day, I wanted to share what the 5 love languages look like for children. These are simple ways to connect with your children, and to show them just how much you love them.⁣ ⁣ 💝I remember the ball of anger I felt when we took Matteo to Disneyland and he hated it. We thought we were giving him this wonderful opportunity; he had other plans. I'm sure this has happened to so many of us! ⁣ ⁣ 💝We weren't speaking his love language. Turns out, it's way easier than I thought to make my son feel my love. If he has the gift of food, snuggling with books, and quality time, he's good to go. He doesn't need the fancy vacations. And that's fine by me.⁣ ⁣ 💝There are so many more ideas I could have added to this list. But I hope this short list gives you some ideas around showing your love to your child today that will hopefully be well received.⁣ ⁣ 👇🏽What's your kiddos love language? How do you meet this for your child?

We always thought we would have a house full of rough and tumble boys. 👦🏼👦🏼👦🏼👶🏼⁣ ⁣ But after finding out we were pregnant with our little rainbow babe, I just knew she was a girl. 🌈⁣ ⁣ I called her Veda girl long before there was any confirmation I was even right.✨⁣ ⁣ As we got closer to the 20 week mark I was just dying to know if I was right!⁣ ⁣ So much that we spontaneously booked a gender reveal ultrasound in Indianapolis while we were on a business trip. 🙈😂⁣ ⁣ I’ll never forget when the technician confirmed our suspicions and I literally cried like a BABY. Like couldn’t make full sentences ugly cry. Like sobbed. 😭😆⁣ ⁣ Tyler and I keep joking that for the next one/s we’ll leave their gender as a surprise ... but knowing us I bet we’ll be too antsy to know!⁣ ⁣ Did you find out your little one/s gender?! 👶🏼

Watch the stories today too for ways I include even very young children (3 & under ) in the process of learning about and prepping for travel. . Traveling is an incredibly valuable experience for children. Seeing how different people go about their daily lives gives us perspective about our own blessings and our own challenges. .

Let’s focus on helping our children change the world rather than survive the world. How? We can start by being a good example of a loving, caring person. Doing things for others. Speaking kindly to strangers. Rewarding our children with praise and encouragement. Small steps lead to big results. . . . . #changetheworld #raisingchildren #psychologistsofinstagram #smallstepstobigchange #rolemodel #askthepsychdocs

Just wanted to say thank you for all the love and sweet comments on our baby BOY news. We are so happy to be adding another boy to the bottom of our brood. ☺️ . Truthfully I was planning on not finding out again because I looooved the surprise last time. My girls were really hoping for a gender reveal. 😆 Last minute we decided to compromise and SURPRISE them with a little family gender reveal. 😉 It was just perfect! . Aaaand now we can focus on arguing about the name. 🙃 #naming5kidsishard #babybrother
