047: How to Respectfully Advocate for your Children (and Model for them How to do the Same) // Emily Orchard, SLP

3 strategies to effectively advocate for your child

“At some point, all of our children need us to be their voice…

How do we find the balance between helping our children be successful and letting them do hard things?

How do we speak to teachers, coaches, leaders and peers in a way that opens hearts and opportunities?

How do we navigate a situation when we feel our children are not safe?

How do we help our children to find their own voice and (when possible) learn to advocate for themselves?”

This is a direct quote that I received in an email from Emily Orchard, a listener of this podcast who is a mother of four and a Speech Language Pathologist.  As she’s worked as an SLP in the schools for the past 16 years, she has become passionate about teaching parents how to advocate for their kids.  This topic became especially meaningful to her when she found that her own son needed some additional support and advocacy.

Don’t miss this incredibly useful episode, which will help you to feel prepared for the next opportunity you have to speak up on your child’s behalf.

042: How to Love Someone When It’s Complicated or Hard: Lessons from Open Adoption

How to Love Someone When It's Complicated or Hard Lessons from Open Adoption

This is the first time I’ve ever cried while recording a podcast episode.  It’s also the first time I’ve ever recorded while whispering in a bathroom during a family reunion.  So basically, prepare yourself–this is going to be vulnerable and possibly bizarre for 3 in 30!  Ultimately, I hope it’s helpful as you navigate your own  relationships and consider how to show more love in situations that can be complicated.

The beginning of this episode is an excerpt from my interview with Tony Overbay for *his* podcast, The Virtual Couch.  Tony is such a warm and caring podcast host, I felt comfortable sharing one of the most sacred experiences of my life with him–and now I share it with you.  I can truly say that this experience with prayer changed the course of my life.

In the second half of the episode, I add three takeaways and further explain my thoughts on how to love someone when it’s hard.

This episode is truly a piece of my heart and soul.  I hope you enjoy it.
