Dr. Meg Meeker

I’m Dr. Meg Meeker, a practicing pediatrician, parent, and grandparent in addition to being a coach, speaker, and author, so I’ve seen parenting from every angle.

After helping over 100,000 parents become more consistent role models for their children, I can definitively say that being a great parent doesn’t need to be complicated. It really just comes down to boundaries and discipline.

EPISODE NOTES

Just about everyone has witnessed a child having a temper tantrum. For parents, their child’s temper tantrums can be overwhelming, often resulting in frustration or anger, and even embarrassment, especially if a tantrum occurs in public. Temper tantrums are such a common issue with kids, and a problem for parents that Dr. Meg wanted to tackle the issue head-on. Join Dr. Meg as she dives into the topic of her brand-new course, “How to Stop Temper Tantrums in Your Child.” Addressing questions such as, Do kids have temper tantrums on purpose? What is actually happening in the minds and emotions of children leading up to and during a temper tantrum? How do I handle my strong-willed child? and more, Dr. Meg shares expert insight into this very common occurrence in children, offering helpful tips parents can use to teach their kids to identify their feelings and better express their emotions.
