On Friday, March 11, 2021, the Moms Meet WOW Summit wrapped up their first virtual tradeshow event. This 3-day online event held topics on parenting, food choices for children, and tons of sneak peeks at new products from well known brands.
While I would have preferred an in-person trade show, the WOW Summit virtual event was put together in a professional and engaging way. Perhaps this is the new form of trade shows? With the upcoming Natural Products Expo West going virtual, we’ll have to make a comparison.
I learned a lot from the Moms Meet WOW Summit. Not only as a mom, but as a blogger and business entity. One particular webinar really resonated with me and I hope it can help you too!
Dr. Laura Markham author or Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids gave a really important webinar on how to create a happy and peaceful atmosphere for your kids:
Stop. Drop. Breathe. Those are the 3 important words that parents must remember when dealing with a difficult situation with their children. Stop what you’re currently doing or saying. Drop your agenda for the moment: calm yourself first by taking deep breaths. Breathe by taking a deep breath before you start again.
I learned that children who are yelled at on a normal basis becomes angrier and more anxious. That’s something I definitely have to remember! When we’re angry and frustrated, we tend to let our that frustration on our loved ones. And when it comes to your kids, they are almost too easily triggered due to their immaturity levels. Therefore, don’t just gather kindling. Soon you will start a fire that will be difficult to distinguish.
Dr. Markham also indicated that kids need to be with us to calm down. If they run off alone, they wouldn’t know how to resolve their anger and it might fester and grow angrier. We need to continue with the connection so kids can learn “self regulation”.
I hope the steps above can help you when you’re feeling like you’ve just had it. I’m going to try the practices mentioned by Dr. Markham and hope I will remember them when I need it.
I was also gifted a Moms Meet WOW Summit gift bag with some awesome products from many brands:
A huge thank you to Moms Meet and the guest speakers and brands! Hopefully we’ll see you at next year’s WOW Summit in person!
