    Hi Alana,
    I love your blog and all the information you are sharing with us. Thank you so much for that!
    Wondering if you have some information regarding kids afraid of dogs. We just got a puppy recently and my son (6 yrs old) love her but my daughter (8 yrs old) was good with the puppy for few days only and then she started reacting very scared every time the dog is moving around and she is not able to even walk close to the dog or move around the house without jumping on all chairs and trying to keep her feet away from the dog.
    I want to know how can I help my daughter? how can she believe that the puppy is not going to hurt her?
    how should I manage this situation?

    instead of been happy about the new family member, I am super stressed and sad, I can’t understand what is going on on her mind, I noticed she is not listening at all what I am saying and I just don’t know what to do.
    Thank you in advance,

    1. Hi Cecilia,

      Thank you so much for your kind words and for your important question. It must be so hard for you as a parent to see your daughter so fearful and be unsure of how to respond. When it comes to addressing your daughter’s fear, one of the most effective means of treatment is what’s known as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). While working with a trained professional is the best course of action, you can read up on using the techniques at home at your own discretion. Here is one resource. If you google CBT for phobias you will find many more resources on the topic. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any additional questions and I’ll do my best to help.

  5. Hi Alana! I’m a FTM to a beautiful 3 month old baby girl and I’m so happy I found your blog! Positive parenting sums up our approach to raising our daughter. I didn’t know there was a name for it! Can’t wait to follow along and read more good stuff from you.

About Me

Hi, I’m Alana. When I’m not nursing cold, stale coffee, I usually can be found with the baby on my hip, barefoot, and racing after my two older kids.

Thanks to a degree in psychology and a free-range childhood backing onto an expansive evergreen forest, positive parenting and play-based learning are my passions.
