Just laying the groundwork with a tab. Thanks for your patience.
While you wait, “Ask Ellen.”
“Ask Ellen” is your chance to ask a parenting question you need help with. I don’t do discipline. I do conversations.
“Ellen Martin has a great way of entering into the mindset of children and using language they understand. She encourages parents, grandparents, and other adults to think about life topics through a child’s eyes and language. The way she has conversations with kids can help us all.” – K. Moore, Children’s Pastor
EXAMPLES from questions I’ve helped others with over the years.
How do you explain to a five-year-old cancer in way that makes sense?
What if your kid walks in on you in bed?
My son asked me what F##K means. What do I say?
“Mom, why do some people have babies when they aren’t married?”
“Why did you kill Jesus? Why did you do that to him?”
If you ask me a question I can’t answer, I won’t. No one can answer everything. Please know that is me respecting you not ignoring you. BUT when I can answer your question, and I have answered more over the years than not, I will share my answer here as a podcast. It’ll be like a conversation.
If you want help with conversation with kids in general, check out my book A Life Shared: Meaningful Conversation with Kids. Book. To order your copy, click HERE. It’s on Amazon too, if you want to “look inside.”
One last thing, please include the age of the child/ren and any other key details. Thanks!
