I Answer 2 Questions:

On this episode of Monday Mornings with Dr. Mona, I welcome Christina to talk about her child and their inability to drink from a straw cup.

We discuss:

  • How to navigate resistance
  • Important phases of straw cup introduction
  • Reframing when your child doesn’t do what you expect them to do
  • Balancing patience and persistence when teaching our children new skills

 

In this new format of Monday Mornings with Dr Mona that began June 2022, I end each episode with three parenting principles. These principles can be used in various parenting situations, but I explain how the three principles I chose apply to a straw-cup resisting toddler.

Tune in to hear me answer these questions.
