By Wendy Rose Gould. Your tone of voice, your body language, and your every expression are absorbed by your kids. Your words and actions as a parent affect their developing self-esteem more than anything else. As children grow and develop, so does your job as ‘parent’. Rather than a rigid view of parenting, parents can modify their expectations, adapting to the changing needs of their growing children.

While parents spend less time with children as they get older, the parenting job becomes more. 5. Your life will likely become more meaningful. More on Parenting.

Younger children can be more carefree so you can push and prompt them a bit more. I was able to salvage the years I had left with my daughter, and, thankfully, that adjustment has made all the difference. If you need to change your parenting style for the good of your child, do it today.

Here are 4 tips for how to change your parenting style. “It’s going to have an impact on how kids grow up and how parenting is done.” The number of stay-at-home parents has decreased over the past several years. According to Census Bureau reports, in 2009, 22.6 percent of married-couple families with children had a stay-at-home mother, down from 23.7 percent in 2008 and nearly 25 percent in 2007.

  • Wow very real and open. It’s hard to discuss mental health and how a child feels. Some children carry the load of their elders judgements, and Self-fulfilling prophecy comes to mind.

  • I just watched a video of a black woman that adopted 2 white children. I love that she was never a victim. She believed in something and was proactive in the best way. A beautiful example.

  • A parent saying anything to the child without understanding what the child needs….. creates more damage!

    A child needs to be heard correctly!

    A child needs to be able to feel balanced and secure!

    So here is your problem……

    Broken families = trust issues = abandonment = mental health issues = A broken system beyond repair


  • Thank you for this conversation. We’re planning on adopting. We’re open to infants of all ethnicities, and the chances are high that the infant will be African American. So I’m sure the ideas presented here will become very relevant (like, in my face relevant). I know I’m in for a rough learning curve.

  • Man, I wish I had this psychiatrist when I was younger. Instead, I had some lady keep feeding me pills. My friends that are soon to be psychiatrists, I’m so proud of them the reflect the doctor we see in this video!:D. Like Dave Chappel said “Black-Lives-Matter is not the best slogan out there. But, Have-You-Had-A-Break-Today has already been taken by Macdonald’s.”

    BLM is the MOST racist and violent.
    The only person I bow my knees to is God. Just saying. Clear publicity stunt by BLM who force people to “take the knee”, for the camera’s. And all the onlookers shouting “Yeah, yeah, yeah” are so emotionally charged due to indoctrination and have no idea that they have been politically played by BLM. Nobody should be bullied into taking the knee especially since BLM is founded by Communists…BLM:

  • 13:52 I suppose having equity than equality would be better, when systemic barriers or biases, etc exist; when they don’t, then equality can be a thing..what do you think?

  • why do people
    especially on social media find it neccessary to complicate everything?
    Is it to have material to upload? Is it a desire to appeal to the masses(regardless of the topic) A wanting to fit in and feel trendy acceptable or ‘In with the ‘alleged In Crowd?
    im married to an Igbo Nigerian, my children are a combination of the love of myself and my Husband…i truly dont recognize the need to complicate Love sincerity openness communication and commitment..
    its all about love for which there are no directions
    either you love or you dont & race creed tribe nor tongue should play any part in that.

  • I don’t think at all that restricting your son from R rated was a mistake at all. His interest was in that technical field and he might a “particular” who was mature enough for those but not all are same neither we can judge/tell/predict at that time mostly if they r mature enough or not. I ‘ll just stay on the safe side and restrict.

  • Sarah I love your videos. I wish though that there was more on waldorf and special needs children. I cannot just tell my son to go play outside. He is on the spectrum and doesn’t filter the world will. We are doing our best to limit screen time. I wish I could start over with him. How do I trust when the danger is real. We live in a depressed area.

  • I’m a single mum so I’m finding it hard to do zero TV. I really enjoy having no TV at all! However, some days, it just feels like a necessity for me. I’m going to keep cutting it down, keep it to a minimum… In a former video you’ve spoken about saying ‘no’. I’m really annoyed that I’ve let the ‘saying no’ thing take over. I hope I can reverse that now and use it for dangerous/ precarious situations. He’s almost 2. He’s saying ‘no’ a lot. One of the only words he says. ����������️

  • Thank you for sharing this information. One thing I have been doing is inviting boredom into my children’s day. It’s amazing to see their creativity! I hear so many moms talk about how busy they are with soccer practice, swimming, jobs etc.

  • common sense media is full of video game reviews where the parents straight-up miss interpret the media and class it as sexual, don’t fully trust the site.

  • Hello Sarah I have a 24 mo old girl, we used to watch lots of TVI thought I was introducing her to wonderful things like musicals but have since learned the damage tv can do. Can you please recommend some toys for our playroom!! I don’t even know where to start she is average for a two-year-old if not slightly behind the only thing that currently have is a dollhouse and blocks

  • Can I just be honest about the movie rigidity and say, I don’t let my kids watch movies with language or nudity because I don’t want to watch it. Maturity or not.

  • I always wanted my kids to only have a few high quality durable toys. We didn’t have a lot of money, and family kept buying and buying my boys lots of plastic toys etc. I felt like it would be ungrateful for me to ask them to stop. I wish I had.

  • Please mrs Sarah,could you make a video about hitting?i have 2 boys(6 and 2) and the big boy hits the littlenone and then he hits him back,awww.A circle of hitting and i cannot handle this situation easily.i yell at both of them and espesially my bigger there any waldorf tips to use?thank are doing wonderful job.hello frln Greece

  • Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and wisdom. Especially the part about fear and Love. I cried when you spoke about seeing the chains around your heart, I have also seen this in meditation. I needed to hear those exact words ant that exact time. Thank you. I Love synchronicity:)

  • I had a feeling your “mistakes” would not really be mistakes.:) Sounds like you were a very thoughtful and caring mom. I think age plays a big role in parenting style. I parent my 4 year old a little differently than I did his 14, 12 and 11 year old siblings. Part of it is having more financial resources. Part of it is having more help. Part of it is age and wisdom. The nice thing is at least the older kids get to see the newer style modeled and can participate in things I maybe didn’t get to do with them at an earlier age.

  • It is good to know personal experiences.. then I can sort of compare n understand more abt upbringing.. My 14yo girl thinks she knows more at times. Frustrating ��

  • Common sense media is good, but still quite liberal in my mind. I agree about ratings and children’s ages-we live in a fantastic neighborhood where my 8 year old leaves everyday after homeschool to ride bikes with her girlfriends-ONLY ON OUR STREET but still…they all come in and out all afternoon & it’s adorable. ♥️♥️you Sarah!!

  • Hi Sarah and possible other readers. I am a parent of a 1st grader at a Waldorf school. Out of 21 kids in her class, she and 1 other kid are the only 2 that haven’t watched a current movie. Screen time with me is limited to once every 4 months or so and with her dad, I am not positive, bc we are divorced, but I think it equals about 30 min to 1 hour a weekend. I am hoping she communicates to me when she is feeling very different from her peers and would like to watch a movie, so far I haven’t heard that from her. I worry about being the parent that is too restrictive on this aspect on her life and she will resent me later. Any advice? I have heard the 9 year change brings more vocalizing in the need to be more similar to peers, so that is kind of what I am waiting to happen. The other parent that does not allow screen time, has two older children, all boys and the two older children do not seem to care about their restriction, but she says this younger one has been more vocal about caring, so she doesn’t know how she will handle it as he gets older.

  • I love this video! I am currently pregnant with my sixth baby…and my other children range from toddler to late teens. I have noticed that I am definitely more open to letting my kids be kids in recent years. The other day my husband rushed into the house, all out of sorts, asking if I knew that our 18-month old was playing in mud puddles with her older brothers…in her brand new clothes. I laughed and told him that both babies AND clothes are washable and to let her play. I never would have said that when my oldest two were toddlers. Thank you for this video! It is truly appreciated.::hugs::

  • Thank you for openness in sharing things you would have done differently. The TV is a struggle in our house still, but we are working on it. But, thank you especially for discussing the struggle with fear that I am sure we all have. My soon to be five year old son has food allergies and ever since his diagnosis after a severe reaction I cannot shake the anxiety and fear of another reaction and I do not want to pass that onto him, even though we constantly teach and remind him to be cautious. The meditation image you shared and encouragement to replace our fears with love is so helpful and lovely. It truly is wonderful advice I will take with me to be mindful that precautions are fine, but do not let my fear be the decision maker for his life and activities. And he deserves a mom that is mindful and loving, not on the verge of a panic attack at every outting ;).

  • Dear Sarah, what a wonderfull video. Last year we changed school for our elderst daughter. She goes to a Waldorf school now. I had so many insights since then. I learn more and more about the waldorf ways and I often feel that I already did too many things different to really change them now. It’s really comforting to see that not starting from the moment of birth, doesn’t mean you can’t start doing otherwise. And so comforting to hear how many ‘mistakes’ we all make and what a wonderfull mums we are at the same time. A really regognizeble video, thank you!

  • Sarah… I can relate so much to your experience… my boys are still little but I struggle so much with fears about them… I do yoga and meditation to help my self be calm, patient and to avoid transferring my anxiety to them, but I’ve never came across this concept that fear is the opposite of love… it’s sound so true now that I’ve heard it… can you please suggest me some books (or articles) about it to learn more? Thank you as always ❤️

  • I have a 10 month old son and worry about doing right by him in our current world, and what you said about fear really resonated with me. Thank you for making these videos, Sarah. I look forward to them every weekend.

  • It is interesting to me how the Waldorf method and anthroposophy in general values the spiritual development of a child, honors every milestone and “phase”, protects the innocence of children, and is the only method of parenting that allows a child to be a child for as long as possible. To allow my son to watch rated R movies at an “early” age seems like the antithesis of all the Waldorf-oriented foundational building blocks I have sacrificed tooth and nail for. My children will never watch rated R movies in my home because I do not watch themand I know I am plenty mature for those films. They can resent me all they want. There is plenty of time for them to watch those movies on their own time under their own roof as adults.

  • street sharks! hahaha. If I had a do-over I would not let my kids choose so much of their own foods. I gave a ‘variety’ and let them choose. I thought eating carrots, applesauce and yogurt were just fine. All items were organic and I thought that was ‘well-rounded’ enough. It wasn’t. When I read GAPS when my youngest was 10 I realized I had made a huge mistake! I should’ve had MUCH more fat and probiotics in their diet and not let them choose their own foods because their gut was not healthy enough to provide guidance. It was working entirely off of a sugar addictioneven though we ate no candy, no juice and no artificial or processed foods.

    My second one is rhythm. I found Waldorf when my girls were in preschool and I finally learned about rhythm. OMG, my life became INFINITELY easier! Before that I had no rhyme or reason to my dayI would head the grocery store at no particular time, attend playdates whenever anyone called and had no plan to my dayother than “I need to get to the store at some point today and naps happen after lunch if we are home.” Once I established a strong rhythm, my life transformed and literally 90% of all meltdowns and problem areas of my day magically disappeared! Imagine, not taking tired kids to the grocery store and the entire trip being enjoyable! haha. It’s the little things!:).

  • Excellent advice. Everynight before bedtime when my little guy is all tucked in we go over all the fun things we did that day, past days and whay we have planned in future days. I also try to spend as much time as possible with just physical play as well which also strengthens the emotional bond!

  • Wow thank you for your honesty. I made so many of those same mistakes raising children that are now in their 30s and 40s, I thought I was the only one that now sees things differently and wishes I could change things and maybe rewrite history. My daughter is such a great mother using Peaceful parenting ideas. I read and study those ideas to try to come beside her as a support. Not easy but so much more fulfilling. My daughter even encourages me saying I am too hard on myself and she and her brothers are able to build on my shoulders. I was raised in a home with parents that both drank, then at 8 when my dad stopped drinking my mom left and I was left to help run a household with my brother and our long distance truck driving dad. He was a great dad when he was home and after he stopped drinking. I totally broke the drinking/leaving cycle and was there for my three children but still made mistakes similar to yours. Thank you for sharing and lifting a bit more burden from-my shoulders. I too watch your you tubes each Monday.

  • I enjoy your videos! “Do not be afraid” is written over and over again in the Bible. I agree that fear and worry can plague us as mothers and disable us from loving our children. When considering homeschooling I talked with a friend and told her how afraid I was of my children being unsafe at school. She told me not to make this decision (or any!) out of fear but out of wisdom and prayer! This changed my entire perspective about decisions I make regarding my kids. To be wise and not afraid. Thank you for reminding me!

  • Sarah, I just discovered your channel, and I think I am going to be glued to it for the foreseeable future. Thank you so much for such relevant, insightful and inspiring content x

  • Such a great conversation! Would love your advice on how to cut our screen time? My 2 1/2 year old son has become accustomed to screen time habits as i struggled with the end of my pregnancy and then the newborn phase. I would love to just switch it off, but he is a very strong willed child! Please help!
