Wholehearted Parenting

Bonnie Compton APRN, BC, CPNP


Parents are you tired of your kids picking at each other, arguing over the silliest matters, fighting with each other and fighting for your attention?Well you’re not alone. I hear that complaint from many parents that I work with. Today we’re going to talk about sibling rivalry…you’ll learn why kids fight and what you can do as a parent to minimize this.

I’ve invited my guest Pam Dyson to join my conversation. Some of you may remember a previous show when Pam and I talked about play therapy, and the importance of play. Pam is a child development expert, parenting coach, licensed professional counselor, nationally certified counselor and registered play therapist with a private practice in Ballwin, MO. Her goal is to help parents find practical solutions to child behavior problems. In addition to her private practice she provides child-centered group play therapy in an elementary school, serves as a mental health consultant, provides licensure supervision and appears regularly on Great Day St. Louis on KMOV TV.

In 2010 Pam founded and is currently the director of the St. Louis Center for Play Therapy Training, which provides continuing education hours and consulting services to mental health professionals interested in play therapy.
Hope you’ll join us!
