Complicated Kids with Gabriele Nicolet

Complicated Kids is a podcast about why raising kids can feel so hard sometimes. We’ll talk about quirky kids, highly sensitive kids, Orchid Kids, disabilities, disorders and therapies. But we’ll also talk about general child development, parenting tips, and how to understand the child you brought home with you and agreed to house, clothe, feed and raise until their adulthood (What were you THINKING?!)

Parenting is an adventure anyway. If you’ve got complicated kids, it can feel like an extreme sport. Join me to unpack all of it, figure out who needs what, and help your family thrive.

Gabriele Nicolet is a Toddler Whisperer, Parent Coach and Speech Therapist. – She is the co-founder of Raising Orchid Kids – an online, global parent education and coaching practice, as well as the owner of SpeechKids – a private speech therapy practice in the DC metro area. Gabriele has a hard time eating out in restaurants if children are present because she always wants to play. She is passionate about all things child development, and particularly fascinated by the ways in which common parenting practices affect highly sensitive (Orchid) kids and how to tweak them so that everyone can stay calm and become their best Selves.

This week I welcome back Karese Laguerre to talk a little more about myofuctionality… specifically tongue tie. Karese has a background as a dental hygienist but helps children with oral dysfunction and breathing issues in her free time. We start by explaining what a tongue tie is, how it can affect a child from birth on, the process and considerations of correcting the tongue tie, and some of the myths and rumors around this. We also talk about the troubles with breastfeeding, when it is not a good idea to correct a tongue tie with surgery, and much more.
