Katie: Good day, and welcome to the “Wellness Mama” podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com and wellnesse.com. That’s Wellnesse with an E on the tip. And this episode is a particular one for me as a result of I’m interviewing my youngest baby, my 5-year-old. And we discuss, as you’d count on with a 5-year-old, many issues, however about our household tradition slightly bit and reply some reader questions from you guys. I attempt to keep away from utilizing her identify in order that at some point she can have the selection to be on-line or not. However I wished to seize a few of her references to our household tradition and use this as a technique to reply some current questions on our household. Because the youngest, she’s positively gotten the advantage of what I’ve realized about well being, and parenting, and training probably the most since I’ve realized as I’ve gone.

And I’ve talked earlier than about how I consider that youngsters are born with lots of the abilities they should thrive as an grownup, issues like creativity, creativeness, skill to attach the dots with sample recognition, vital considering, youngsters are pure “why” askers and lots of others, and that a lot of our work as dad and mom is simply preserving them from having these abilities educated out of them. However I wished to share a glimpse into her tackle some issues in an unfiltered manner. I didn’t catch them on this recording, however she’s the one who has stated issues prior to now, like, when requested why she was so cute, saying, “As a result of my mommy made me from scratch.” Her solutions to lots of questions are simply humorous. And her a part of this podcast will certainly be extra humor than data, however maybe a glance into what my every day life appears like along with her.

However earlier than we soar into her tackle imaginary associates and unicorns, I additionally wished to share some facets of our household tradition in slightly bit extra structured of a manner as a way to, type of, perceive the tradition that she’s grown up in her complete life. Numerous this stems from our household manifesto, which is in our house, we create a spot of affection, order, happiness, calm, concord, and journey to assist every of us work towards our objective, mastery of self, and objectives in order that we are able to create constructive change on this planet. And that’s very prime of thoughts in how we increase our youngsters. And so she’s seen facets of that her complete life. A few of these concepts in our manifesto are represented in quotes or paintings round our house, particularly on our household tradition wall, which lives in our kitchen.

I’ll hyperlink to a few of the prints I’ve drawn for our tradition wall within the present notes at wellnessmama.fm. However a couple of that you simply’ve in all probability heard me say earlier than which can be an enormous a part of our household tradition are, “You had been made to do onerous issues,” which was impressed by Wonderling Household, which they’re on Ista, some good associates of ours. And our youngsters hear us say this phrase loads. Actually, they’ve began saying it again to us. They’re all slightly bit extra fearless than I’m nowadays. And sometimes I hear these phrases again at me as a lot as I say them to them anymore, at occasions like after I was too scared to cliff soar in water, they usually’d already all completed it, and I finally ended up doing it too.

This message is de facto necessary in our household as a result of in life, we’re all the time gonna encounter issues which can be tough however we now have a alternative in how we body these issues. And so we attempt to keep away from as adults and in addition assist our kids study to keep away from framing one thing as unhealthy simply because it’s onerous or uncomfortable. It’s turn out to be a part of our household tradition to sort out challenges in a enjoyable manner. And I now see this play out with my youngsters in their very own manner as their very own little tribe. And so they encourage one another of their varied adventures, whether or not it’s pole vaulting, or chess, or studying backflips, or Rubik’s Cubes, or climbing timber, no matter it could be, they typically lean into this facet of our household tradition that they had been made to do onerous issues.

We additionally put every day reminders of this throughout our home, and issues just like the gymnastics mat down the hallway, or the rings, and climbing holds of their room. It’s issues that we put of their technique to encourage each exercise and in addition that fixed skill to do onerous issues. And these items additionally remind me to maintain working in direction of a few of these. One other recurring message in our house is, “I like you unconditionally. There’s nothing you are able to do to remove from that or to extend it.” And this one’s fairly self-explanatory. However I believe it’s one thing necessary for teenagers to listen to typically, particularly the second half, that they don’t need to earn our love and that there’s nothing they should do to extend it by getting approval by way of their actions.

One other one very distinguished in our home is, “Fall asleep smarter than while you awakened.” Curiosity and studying are one other massive a part of our household tradition. And with little ones, I strive, not all the time efficiently, definitely, to reply their questions. And if I don’t know the reply to analysis it with them. I’m fond of claiming like, “I don’t know, however let’s discover out collectively.” And that is the preliminary manner youngsters study earlier than they will learn or have entry to know-how. And so, their questions, whereas they are often positively exhausting by the fourth or fifth-hundred one of many day, are an amazing educating alternative. And my dad and mom had been nice at this. And whereas some days it’s an excessive check of my persistence, it’s a good way to assist youngsters study shortly. I believe one time just lately after I traveled with simply the youngest, and I used to be decided that I used to be simply gonna reply each single query she had that day with out dropping persistence. And all through the course of the day, and airline flights, and driving, she requested a number of hundred questions and I used to be very drained by the tip of the day.

I additionally attempt to keep away from utilizing the phrases “as a result of I stated so” and to assist youngsters determine the solutions to questions by asking them clarifying questions again slightly than simply giving them the reply each time I can. So, as an example, after they ask why one thing occurs or why one thing is the way in which it’s, I like to ask them again, “Properly, what do you suppose,” or, “What is perhaps a purpose it will be like that?” After which let the dialogue circulate from there. We additionally construct this into our household tradition with issues like watching TED Talks, a number of studying and entry to books, and fixed publicity to new issues to study as a result of the mind is engaged otherwise when it’s studying one thing new. And children naturally are studying so many new issues as a result of a lot remains to be new to them. However by sustaining fixed publicity to new issues, we will help keep that child-like curiosity that could be a commonality of lots of the world’s most profitable individuals who had a constructive impression on the world.

The one two gadgets in our household price range that I think about virtually fully limitless are books and studying materials, and provides for studying or experiments. And this has led to issues like 3D printers in our home, tremendous worms in a closet in my son’s room, a foundry in our yard the place they soften metallic, and plenty of different enjoyable initiatives. However identical to I stated, youngsters are born with this talent set. It’s simply getting out of their manner and giving them the instruments to discover.

And likewise the phrase, “Every thing will work out completely for me.” This one is impressed by Tina Anderson from Simply Thrive. And it’s a great reminder that every thing will work out. And whereas it’s typically simple to deal with the acute after we’re in an issue, every thing will work out and issues that appear tough now are sometimes barely even reminiscences in 5 to 10 years.

On this episode, we additionally discuss slightly bit about our household meals tradition. And also you’ll hear her even point out consuming sugar a few occasions. You guys ask me typically what my meals strategy is with my youngsters, and I point out that I don’t restrict or attempt to management their meals decisions after they’re exterior of our house. And also you’ll positively hear this from her. I talked slightly bit earlier than however my philosophy is I prepare dinner nutrient-dense meals at house and educate my youngsters early about how meals impacts their our bodies in numerous methods. I strive to not prohibit meals past that or to overly management it after they aren’t house as a result of I don’t need meals to ever be a forbidden factor or for them to consider any meals nearly as good or unhealthy. And personally, I now eat an enormous number of meals. And there are only a few issues that I can’t or received’t eat. However I additionally don’t eat something each single day.

My hope is that they undertake a way of stability from an early age and learn to hearken to their our bodies. I’ve seen this play out in my older youngsters. And my teenage son typically received’t eat in any respect if he’s not hungry or typically will eat one actually giant meal at evening when he’s hungry. And my older ones are all making comparatively good well being decisions and meals decisions virtually on a regular basis, even not at house. And the older ones have even created their very own tradition round wholesome consuming, and cooking, and cooking totally different meals with their associates.

And all of these items, the commonality, I discover is that growing a powerful household tradition is far more efficient at serving to youngsters wish to make good decisions than simply telling them they need to or, definitely, having actually strict guidelines about these items. , like, management is aligning motivations and getting somebody to wish to do the factor you need them to do, which is definitely a lot simpler than making an attempt to power a baby to do one thing they don’t wanna do. And my youngest has had the benefit of this her complete life. You’ll hear her perspective on a few of these issues on this episode, together with slightly extra element about our household and what a day within the life is like, and in addition just a bit little bit of humor as a result of she is totally unfiltered. So, with out additional ado, let’s be a part of my 5-year-old who needs to be referred to as Elsa to guard her privateness.
