054: What If I’m Jealous? // Monica Packer of About Progress

3 Ways to Identify and Overcome Jealousy in your Life

Have you ever been a little bit jealous, even of a good friend? I’m guessing the answer is YES because most of us face jealousy to varying degrees and in various forms throughout our lives.

In this episode, I talk openly with my dear friend and podcasting colleague, Monica Packer of About Progress, about how we have been jealous of each other at times–and what we’ve decided to *do* with that emotion.

Monica shares three “dive deep” questions to ask yourself if you recognize that you’re feeling jealous and if you want to use that feeling to become a better person and friend.  (Yes, it’s possible!)

Don’t miss this honest, heartfelt episode, and let us know what it makes you think about in your own life!

Are you guilty of the distracted “Uh huh” when your children are telling you a story? When they pause for your reaction, do you realize that you have no idea what they just said?

If so, you’re not alone. And this week’s guest, Kim Jacobs, is here to help! She has a Master’s degree is Interpersonal and Family Communication, and she’s a mom of four young boys.

In this episode, we discuss…

-how paraphrasing can help us to reconnect with a child after we’ve been interrupted

-how to lovingly hurry your child along when they are telling a 25-minute long story 😉

049: How to Involve Your Children as you Build a Business // Tonya Dalton of ‘inkWELL Press’

Podcast with 3 takeaways to involve your children as you pursue your passion

Some of you may see this episode title and think, “YES! I need this!”  Others may think, “Not for me–I don’t have any intention of starting a business.”

But believe it or not, this episode is for ALL mamas.  Because I think all of us want to involve our children in the passions that are important to us.

Today’s guest is Tonya Dalton of inkWELL Press.  She is a powerhouse business woman and a loving wife and mother of two.  She built several businesses from her home while her kids were young, and she has so many practical tips on how to do just that.  Within her takeaways, she also talks about empowering our kids to contribute to the home, modeling for them how to have boundaries and work as a team, and teaching them how to plan ahead and use their time wisely.

I really think this episode has golden nuggets for EVERY mama, no matter what you do for work–take a listen and let me know if you agree!

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.
