How Do We Answer Our Children’s Questions About Death?
31:43

Children are curious about death. It can feel ‘magical’ and strange to them. We all hold different stories about death and making sense of this can help us answer our children’s questions more meaningfully. How can we talk about death without instilling fear? What are the keywords children need to hear to make sense of death? What can you do to look after yourself in this process? Dr Martha talks about this and more.

Should We Read ‘Classic Books’ To Our Kids Even If They Are Full Of Stereotypes?
28:08

We all know the classical stories and fairytales of our childhood. How do we feel about reading these stories now to our own children? What if we don’t agree with the stereotypes within them? Will it harm our children to hear these stories or will it make some of what we teach them seem ‘at odds’ with this? Dr Martha talks about some of the themes classic stories carry within them and what you can do with this, if you wish to.

 

If you would like to read some different stories to your child Dr Martha has compiled a list of her favourite books, including some that deliberately re-story the classical fairytales of our childhood. Have a look for these stories. Find reading lists here:

How Can I Stop Being A 'Shouty' Parent?
33:47

We all let out our anger on our children sometimes. How can you begin to make sense of your triggers? What message is Anger trying to tell you? How can you build a toolkit of resources that not only prevents you getting into ‘shouty mode’ but protects and recharges you to have more capacity to be with your child? Dr Martha reflects on all of this and more of this episode on Anger.

 

Need further support to manage anger? There is help out there. Dr Martha has compiled a list of resources including useful charities and ways to access support alongside further reading on emotions. See all of this and more here: https://www.drmarthapsychologist.com/resources

How Do I Support My Child Moving Schools When They Don’t Want To?
30:19

When children move schools it can be one of the first transitions they have awareness of, and even if it’s the right decision, it can be hard. Before you can have a new beginning you need to have an ending. Dr Martha talks through what transitions can bring up for you and for your child, offering ideas to support you moving through this in a way that allows both you and your child to process the change and come out the other side feeling more connected.
