Mealtime: Making Meals a Highlight of your Child's Day!

On today's episode, I tackle one of the most frequent questions I receive from clients: how do I get my child to sit at the table and eat?  

Mealtimes are incredibly important for your child's growth and development.  A little bit of time spent planning ahead can ensure that mealtimes are enjoyable for you, your child, and the entire family! 

In this episode, I explain how setting rules, expectations, and encouraging participation helps your child develop healthy routines, pre-mealtime, mealtime, and post-mealtime.  The routines make your child feel more confident, secure, and recognized.  With some persistence mealtimes will soon become some of the most enjoyable parts of you, and your child's day. 

This week, I challenge all of my listeners to start creating routines that include rules expectations, and participation for your next mealtime!

Welcome to The Speech Boutique Podcasts!

My clients call me the "new parent's" coach. I've been working with amazing parents like you for the past seven years. Here's my "why."

Seeing 1st time parents struggle to teach their child foundational learning, communication and social emotional skills. So many parents "wait" for their child's preschool teacher to prepare them for kindergarten.

So I set out on my own journey to be that person for parents. I've helped over hundreds of parents regain their confidence. Through one-on-one and group coaching sessions, I've been fortunate enough to connect with unbelievable families across the globe equipping them with the skills, knowledge and strategies to prepare their preschooler for kindergarten and beyond.
