Wendy Snyder has two children and has been using Positive Parenting in her home since 2009. She discovered the work of Positive Parenting when she was challenged and overwhelmed with the many trials of parenthood early in her motherhood experience. The endless opportunities for practice, failure, learning, and growth have created a deep fluency for Wendy in the language and curriculum of Redirecting Children’s Behavior.
Wendy obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from San Diego State University and Parenting Certification from the International Network for Children & Families. Before her move to parenting education, Wendy enjoyed a decade-long career in the corporate action sports industry.
In this episode, you’ll learn
- What is “positive parenting”
- The 4 categories of misbehavior
- Your child’s “needs”
- Classic 4 responses to misbehavior
- The term power kids (a.k.a. cactus kids)
- Seeking to understand

Wendy and I talk about creating a weekly family meeting. It’s a fun way to dedicated time with your family that leads to connection. Family meetings are a safe place to discuss the upcoming week and family agreements (not compliance statements). Need help to get started? Grab a copy of the free eBook, Family Meetings: Everything You Need to Know to Start a Family Meeting with Your Family. As a bonus, I will add you to my exclusive email club. (Every Monday you will receive a short email about the latest Dyslexia Mom Life episode and resources.)
