Podcast Series Honey You're Ruining Our Kid

The first ever zero judgement parenting podcast from the team behind An Irishman Abroad. Join funny man Jarlath and child behaviouralist Tina Regan as they tackle the questions, the worries and the day-to-day hilarity that comes with modern parenting.

Jarlath collects anonymous questions from frazzled and exhausted parents, while Tina shares more than 20 years of experience working in early childhood intellectual, behavioural and social development.

Ep 38 Summer Holiday Kid Wrangling Cheat Codes & More

Ep 38 Summer Holiday Kid Wrangling Cheat Codes & More

How the hell are we supposed to manage these little monsters/darlings for the next few weeks. Summer panic is upon us. Tina revisits the "tapas meal technique" that has changed countless listeners' lives and meal times. One mom gets in touch who is struggling to accommodate her child’s dinner requests. What do you do when they refuse to eat the requested dinner. We have to take the power back. Allow your child to think they are in control while you pull all the strings. Everyone is happy when tummies are full. What do you do when a 4 year old's behaviour is off the reservation. When she’s stumbling round the house like an 80s glam rock star leaving a trail of destruction behind her. Tina thinks this is an easy fix. Tina also recommends introducing a visual planner that will change your summer. Let your kids in on the plan. Inform them of the rules and your expectations. Give them the chance to show you how good they can be. Once they know what’s expected they will play ball. This is our July episode for the summer. We will record an August one too and then it will be back to business as usual in September with season 2 of Honey! You’re Ruining Our Kid. The email will remain open. Tina is here for you guys this summer. So keep those questions coming in [email protected]. Happy summer holidays everyone, thank you for supporting our show and helping it grow. We are so grateful.

Ep 37 Answering Your Kid's Awkward Questions, Body Image & Rejection

Ep 37 Answering Your Kid's Awkward Questions, Body Image & Rejection

The school holidays are finally here and it's your job to entertain these little darlings 24/7! The panic is real. As are the emails that have been filling up Tina's inbox about what the hell to do when your circus comes to town and you're the chief plate spinner. As always there is 3 big questions on 3 thorny issues and a few big laughs thrown in. There's even a bit of RTE chat thrown in to help you explain to our kids the value of putting your hand up when you screw up. Great kid, terrible sense of humour? What do you do when your child is a little angel but makes terribly hurtful jokes at your expense? Tina thinks boundaries are the key while I think education comedically will produce an understanding of where the line is and when to cross it. Is a family meeting or a Billy Connolly DVD the answer? A worrying question or a sign of the times? What do you say to your 3 year old kid when they ask you, "Am I fat?" We hear from a family where a very young child has suddenly become body conscious. Is it best to ignore this? When does this disturbing question from a small child warrant more attention? Tina explains the need to refocus their interest on food and its function as fuel for the body to build, repair and run. What do you do when your family rejects your child? A parent gets in touch for advice on how to deal with the rejection she suffers at the hands of her relations. Her extended family have zero interest in getting to know her child. Recently her child has become aware of this. The feeling of rejection is deep. How do you guide your child through this? Without a doubt, this is one of the toughest questions we have received to date. Get in touch with any advice you have or questions for Tina by emailing - [email protected]. Also what are your summer family-life-hacks? Is there a shortcut to an easier summer we could all use? Let us know.
