FREE: 3 Steps to Solve Any Parenting Problem


  1. What are you bringing to the situation?
    Try to come into the situation with calmness and presence.Children follow presence. Leadership is being able to be fully present and calm.  With that presence you can inspire your child so that they feel they can trust you to help find a solution that works for everyone.
  2. Connection
    While you cannot control another person you can influence them.Your biggest influence comes from your connection with your child. You connect by listening to your child’s feelings and looking for opportunities to connect throughout the day.
  3. Coaching
    Usually we try to make the emotions go away.  The only way for children to move into problem solving is to move through their emotions.We can help our children with emotion coaching which means we allow them to have the emotions. By acknowledging the emotions we allow our child to work through them.  Once they’ve been allowed to have their feelings and have been acknowledged they are then able to problem solve and make a repair if needed.

  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? (https://www.facebook.com/groups/loveparentingwithavital/).

      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 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.
