Katie: Hey, and welcome to the “Wellness Mama” podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com and wellnesse.com. That’s Wellnesse with an E on the top. And this episode is a particular one for me as a result of I’m interviewing my youngest little one, my 5-year-old. And we speak about, as you’ll count on with a 5-year-old, many issues, however about our household tradition just a little bit and reply some reader questions from you guys. I attempt to keep away from utilizing her identify in order that sooner or later she could have the selection to be on-line or not. However I needed to seize a few of her references to our household tradition and use this as a method to reply some latest questions on our household. Because the youngest, she’s positively gotten the good thing about 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 kids are born with lots of the expertise they should thrive as an grownup, issues like creativity, creativeness, capacity to attach the dots with sample recognition, vital considering, children are pure “why” askers and lots of others, and that a lot of our work as mother and father is simply preserving them from having these expertise educated out of them. However I needed to share a glimpse into her tackle some issues in an unfiltered method. I didn’t catch them on this recording, however she’s the one who has stated issues previously, like, when requested why she was so cute, saying, “As a result of my mommy made me from scratch.” Her solutions to plenty of questions are simply humorous. And her a part of this podcast will certainly be extra humor than info, however maybe a glance into what my every day life seems like together with her.

However earlier than we leap into her tackle imaginary mates and unicorns, I additionally needed to share some facets of our household tradition in just a little bit extra structured of a method with the intention to, sort of, perceive the tradition that she’s grown up in her complete life. Plenty of this stems from our household manifesto, which is in our dwelling, we create a spot of affection, order, happiness, calm, concord, and journey to assist every of us work towards our goal, mastery of self, and targets in order that we will create constructive change on the planet. And that’s very high of thoughts in how we elevate 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 art work round our dwelling, 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 just’ve most likely heard me say earlier than which are a giant a part of our household tradition are, “You had been made to do exhausting issues,” which was impressed by Wonderling Household, which they’re on Ista, some good mates of ours. And our youngsters hear us say this phrase rather a lot. In truth, they’ve began saying it again to us. They’re all just a little bit extra fearless than I’m today. And sometimes I hear these phrases again at me as a lot as I say them to them anymore, at occasions like once I was too scared to cliff leap in water, they usually’d already all completed it, and I ultimately ended up doing it too.

This message is de facto vital in our household as a result of in life, we’re all the time gonna encounter issues which are troublesome however we have now a alternative in how we body these issues. And so we attempt to keep away from as adults and likewise assist our youngsters be taught to keep away from framing one thing as dangerous simply because it’s exhausting or uncomfortable. It’s turn out to be a part of our household tradition to deal with challenges in a enjoyable method. And I now see this play out with my children in their very own method as their very own little tribe. They usually encourage one another of their numerous adventures, whether or not it’s pole vaulting, or chess, or studying backflips, or Rubik’s Cubes, or climbing timber, no matter it might be, they typically lean into this facet of our household tradition that they had been made to do exhausting 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 method to encourage each exercise and likewise that fixed capacity to do exhausting issues. And this stuff additionally remind me to maintain working in direction of a few of these. One other recurring message in our house is, “I really 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 feel it’s one thing vital 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 outstanding in our home is, “Fall asleep smarter than whenever you awoke.” Curiosity and studying are one other massive a part of our household tradition. And with little ones, I attempt, 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 method kids be taught earlier than they’ll 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 a terrific educating alternative. And my mother and father had been nice at this. And whereas some days it’s an excessive check of my persistence, it’s an effective way to assist children be taught shortly. I feel one time lately once 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 shedding 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 top of the day.

I additionally attempt to keep away from utilizing the phrases “as a result of I stated so” and to assist children work out the solutions to questions by asking them clarifying questions again moderately 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 best way it’s, I like to ask them again, “Nicely, what do you suppose,” or, “What may be a purpose it could be like that?” After which let the dialogue stream 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 be taught as a result of the mind is engaged differently when it’s studying one thing new. And children naturally are studying so many new issues as a result of a lot continues to be new to them. However by sustaining fixed publicity to new issues, we might help preserve that child-like curiosity that could be a commonality of plenty of the world’s most profitable individuals who had a constructive influence on the world.

The one two gadgets in our household price range that I think about virtually utterly 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 steel, and many different enjoyable initiatives. However identical to I stated, children are born with this ability set. It’s simply getting out of their method and giving them the instruments to discover.

And in addition the phrase, “All the pieces will work out completely for me.” This one is impressed by Tina Anderson from Simply Thrive. And it’s a very good reminder that every little thing will work out. And whereas it’s typically simple to give attention to the acute once we’re in an issue, every little thing will work out and issues that appear troublesome now are sometimes barely even recollections in 5 to 10 years.

On this episode, we additionally discuss just a little 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 method is with my children, and I point out that I don’t restrict or attempt to management their meals decisions after they’re exterior of our dwelling. And also you’ll positively hear this from her. I talked just a little bit earlier than however my philosophy is I prepare dinner nutrient-dense meals at dwelling and educate my children early about how meals impacts their our bodies in several methods. I attempt to not prohibit meals past that or to overly management it after they aren’t dwelling as a result of I don’t need meals to ever be a forbidden factor or for them to consider any meals pretty much as good or dangerous. 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 children. And my teenage son typically received’t eat in any respect if he’s not hungry or generally will eat one actually massive meal at night time 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 dwelling. And the older ones have even created their very own tradition round wholesome consuming, and cooking, and cooking totally different meals with their mates.

And all of this stuff, the commonality, I discover is that growing a robust household tradition is way more efficient at serving to children need to make good decisions than simply telling them they need to or, definitely, having actually strict guidelines about this stuff. You recognize, like, management is aligning motivations and getting somebody to need to do the factor you need them to do, which is definitely a lot simpler than making an attempt to pressure 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 just a little extra element about our household and what a day within the life is like, and likewise just a bit little bit of humor as a result of she is totally unfiltered. So, with out additional ado, let’s be part of my 5-year-old who needs to be known as Elsa to guard her privateness.

Elsa: So I didn’t cease saying it, and I liked that guide and I’d simply dance with it. And I’d all the time say, “Please,” with it. I’d go get it off the bookshelf say, “Please,” to you. I’d level at it. I’d maintain it like this and say, “Please.” And also you stated no, so I’d do, “Please.”

Katie: Okay, we’ll wrap up there then. Are you able to inform all people, “Thanks for listening,” and hello?

Elsa: Thanks for listening. Hello. Bye.
