Peaceful parenting during times of conflict

FREE: 3 steps to solve any parenting problem

According to Dr. Laura Markham, there are 3 key things to address when we find ourselves in a conflict situation with our child: 

  1. What are you bringing to the situation?
    Children follow presence. Try to come into the situation with calmness and presence. Being fully present and calm can help inspire confidence in your child that you will find a solution that works for everyone.
  2. Connection
    Your biggest influence comes from your connection with your child. While you cannot control another person, you can influence them. Connect deeply by listening to your child’s feelings and seizing opportunities to connect throughout the day.
  3. Coaching
    We can use emotion coaching to help our children, which means allowing them to express their emotions. Usually, parents try to make emotions go away. But the only way for children start problem solving is to move through their emotions. By acknowledging our children’s feelings, we allow our child to work through them, which sets them up to problem solve and repair as needed.

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣

  1. Awesome video! Thank you! I only had time to finish watching “How to Stop Your Child from Hitting” which was extremely helpful as I can apply these ideas daily with my 2 boys (a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old).

    However, a question that arises for me, is when this sort of situation occurs among siblings (typically its my 4 yr old who is causing the 2 yr old to cry . . . either he stole his toy, or pushed him, etc), how do you tend to the child who “threw sand” if the other child who was hurt still wants you to hold and console him & doesn’t recover quickly? When its siblings, its often just 1 adult tending to both kids who need attention.
    If i’m holding/consoling the 2 yr old, the 4 yr old may get even more angry, and may want to push the 2 yr old out of my arms. In these situations its hard to get to a point where I can turn my full attention to the 4 yr old, to make him feel validated, to connect, etc. There are times when they just continue poking at & bothering each other the entire time as I’m trying to apply what I learned in these videos.
    Thanks again Avital and Dr. Laura!

    1. Hey Tanya!

      I so hear you on the sibling dynamic! My kids are about the same age as yours and I want you to know you aren’t alone in that struggle. I definitely struggle to connect and validate my eldest’s feelings when the argument gets to the point where both kids have hurt each other.

      Are you in the Love Parenting with Avital facebook group? (

      I encourage you to post your question in there as well. It’s an amazing non-judgmental community that has a lot of advice and support. I’m sure there are other parents in there that are either going through something similar or have gone through it and your vulnerability in asking helps anyone else who reads it as well! – Tracy xx

  2. I just wanted to leave a note, that the music in the beginning and end of this one, is very loud and it’s very hard to concentrate and hear what you’re saying…

  3. Hi avital, I just had an experience yesterday in a playground and it was not a conflict – per say. As I am working on my awareness practice, I realised that I actually have no idea how to react to the situation and I want to know how to deal with such/similar situation in the future.

    My almost 5 yr old and 15 months old son were just playing in the playground. I was just there near them when a (7-8 yr old) boy, whose friends with similar age – maybe 5 or 6 of them were nearby giggling, came over. He told me “excuse me, can we touch your (plural) breasts?”. We live in germany by the way. I was st that point startled, dismissed the question by smiling thinking that they were joking. But they moved on by then mentioning other parts of the bodies – bascallywags inappropriate words. And as they insist on the question I answered “definitely not” and basically neglecting them.

    Because of other incident (older son fell and need plaster) had to head home almost right away. While walking away two kids were behind us and as I turned my heads they were giggling.

    Inside me, i was feeling sensations of uncomfortable, a bit of anger, a bit of fear, insecure of what to say and do.

    I am the kind that gets my safe exit from a situation instead of confrnoting. How should I reacT? And of course I am asking this because there were also my kids where I want them to learn how to react in such situation, accept and understand that those were not good example but may happen in life?

    Thank you.

  4. I need these videos for every step and stage seriously I 😍 them and you two together as a team totally epic! I’d like to see a video on sibling interactions. My four children 6,5,3&1 are all so mean to each other 90% of the day is conflict UNLESS they are charging around the house (minus the 1 year old of course) playing some high energy role play. This usually will eventually end in tears but for the is happy while it lasts. Problem though oldest is a hitter and very strong willed and controlling they are all jealous of each other all competing and little old me is trying to spread the love out to them all but it’s doesnt seem to be enough 🤔 mega hard. I quote the song (please read in a sing like voice) where is the love 🤷🏻‍♀️🎵😅 seriously I’ve gotta laugh or il cry. Peace.
