Show Notes

Disciplining your children is one of the most controversial topics when it comes to parenting. It’s also one of the most difficult because it requires parents to be continually consistent in how rules are enforced and consequences are carried out. In this episode, Dr. Meeker has invited Rachael Herrscher and Cassi Reece to talk about the successes in discipline, and what we’ll call “learning opportunities” that they both are in the middle of with their children. Rachael is the founder and CEO of TodaysMama.com, whose motto is “Changing diapers, minds and habits, sometimes all in one day”. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg gives you her points to ponder to begin using right away, and she asks listeners to send in questions for a future all-social episode of the podcast. Do you have a question for Dr. Meg? If so, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and she could answer your question in an upcoming episode!
