Dr Oz: Jo Frost Toddler Rules Review
Do you feel like nobody in your family listens to you? If so, it could be taking a toll on your health so Dr. Oz invited Jo Frost, author of Toddler Rules, to talk about ways you can get your husband and kids to listen without putting your health at risk. Jo says the best way to get control of your home is to figure out where the problem is because you can then carve out a plan to get more of what you are lacking in your life.
Dr. Oz says his biggest concern is about the toll that stress takes on a person’s health, especially for someone who does not feel they are being heard by their loved ones. He talked to a woman who admits to feeling out of control and overwhelmed from the stress caused by constant battles with her children to eat and take naps during the day. She says it is often worsened by the fact her husband does not listen to her and often coddles their younger daughter, so Jo Frost offered advice to help her regain a little control.
Dr Oz: Jo Frost’s SOS Plan to Feel Heard
Jo Frost, television’s Supernanny, says the first step in gaining control of your household is learning how to communicate effectively. Jo explains we often spend much of our time shouting at our kids, but never feel like we are actually being heard or validated because everyone in the family basically shuts off and you are left feeling out of control. She says one important thing to understand is that just because your partner did not agree with something you said, it does not mean they didn’t hear you.
- Step Back – Jo recommends taking a moment to physically and mentally take a step back from a situation.
- Observe – Stand back and look at the bigger picture.
- Step Back In and Respond – Come up with a clear game plan to deal with the issue at hand.
Dr Oz: How to Get Your Kids to Eat at Mealtime
Jo Frost has advice for the three most common trying situations that many mothers find themselves in on any given day.
- When you are at odds with your spouse, especially in front of your child, it creates a situation where the child will begin to force a wedge into your relationship. Jo recommends having conversations and creating game plans for different situations, so when they occur you can present a united front and handle them together.
- Many moms struggle to get their children to eat, but Jo says it does not have to be a battle at every meal. She says you need to stipulate from the beginning what they need to eat before leaving the table and set an example by sitting with them during mealtime. Do not feed into their whining, but rather feed their body what it needs to be healthy.
- Nap time is probably one of the biggest struggles many moms face, so Jo recommends creating a ritual that allows for time to wind down in a focused environment with no outside distractions.
