The Power of Play Inside Danny Joe's Tree House]]> Sun, 15 Oct 2017 13:49:23 GMT 0 59e367649739f65d3b024735 no full 57 If you've never visited Danny Joe's Tree House, you are in for a treat! This week I have the creator and star of a wonderful up and coming children's show, Danny LaBrecque, to discuss methods of communicating to children through play. Often, a child may not have the words to tell us exactly how they are feeling or what is wrong. But through active listening and observing their play, we can discover ways into their inner life and guide them to healthier emotional choices.

Remember to tune in next Saturday morning (10/21 at 9am EST) for an interactive pre-taping!

If you truly put yourself in the shoes of a child and think through their day, it becomes clear that they are often not given the opportunity to make choices which leads to self doubt within the child and power struggles between you and the child. In this episode, recorded LIVE at Nannypalooza, Cady Leinicke and I discuss ways to hold space for your nanny kids to make decisions throughout their day!


There are also some of the sweetest stories from fellow nannies. This episode was a joy to record. Thank you, Sue Downey, for this amazing opportunity!
