    How To Get The MOST Out Of Summer With Your Kids & Without The Pressure!

    How To Get The MOST Out Of Summer With Your Kids & Without The Pressure!

    There is so much pressure around summertime! Make the most, cherish every moment, have no responsibility (while it piles up around you), and take it all in because it is fleeting.

    Yes! Yes, it is. But, we can’t stop life, pause all responsibilities and just live at the pool for 3 months of every year.

    In this podcast, I want to strip the stress of summer fun and give you the real deal on a silver platter. The in’s and out’s of how to help your child use their brains and bodies over this educational siesta AND have room for some BIG fun and some space for you to get what you need done as well.

    It is all possible friends. Listen in!

    The Lessons I Learned Homeschooling For 7 Years & What I Would Have Done Differently

    The Lessons I Learned Homeschooling For 7 Years & What I Would Have Done Differently

    Have you ever thought about homeschooling? Maybe you are homeschooling now or did in the past.



    I just closed the doors on our school after 7 years and I want to share with you everything I learned in that experience, how it grew me, grew our relationships, understanding, patience, curiosity, critical thinking and so much more.



    I also want to share what I might have done differently if I could go back and speak to the woman that started it all in 2015 with a kindergartner, 2 2nd graders, and a 5th grader.



    Life is a journey and homeschooling was one of my many adventures of mine. Tune in and see why!

    Setting Up For The Path In and After High School with Guest Stephanie Haynes

    Setting Up For The Path In and After High School with Guest Stephanie Haynes

    Has what happens after high school always seemed cut and dry to you? There is a decades-long idea that after high school comes college and that is the way of life, but what it is wasn’t for some? What if it is for others?

    Stephanie and Nellie have a fantastic and educational discussion here that you will want a pen and paper out for. Stephanie discusses the details of the 5 main pathways of post-high school education and the pros and cons of each. We discuss the ever sparkly “college experience” what that actually is and how to have conversations with our kids to start with the end and work backward to find the way.

    I hope this message reaches every parent with a middle or high schooler out there today so we can help lead our kids to their best future!

    The 4 Conversations That Need to Happen In Your Living Room To Move Forward After Another School Shooting

    The 4 Conversations That Need to Happen In Your Living Room To Move Forward After Another School Shooting

    What can we do? It seems so complicated and tangled and the finger-pointing is going around and around, so the problem is revolving instead of resolving.



    There are 4 conversations that need to be had and the best place to start is in your living room. In this episode, I dive into each conversation and what that means.



    This is NOT a political debate. This is NOT a policy debate. This is NOT about blame or shame.



    This is about all of us agreeing that this is not ok and finding solutions.



    *WARNING- This podcast does discuss school shootings.

    The Importance of Play (Even When Your Child is Older) and How it Echoes into Adulthood with Guest Roya Dedeaux

    The Importance of Play (Even When Your Child is Older) and How it Echoes into Adulthood with Guest Roya Dedeaux

    This episode is so fun, as you would expect an interview with an expert on play to be.

    Roya and Nellie go deeper than the smiles and giggles when it comes to play and examine the bigger effects at play (pun totally intended!)

    How does play affect their curiosity, validation, perspective on diversity, tolerance, problem-solving, and more!

    We are not just talking about barbies, cars, and kitchen here either. We are talking about video games, board games, card games, interactive play, and those things that tweens and teens do to explore their curiosity and creativity.

    This is a great episode to help connect parents with their kids through play and, bonus, we go through some great television for your family to enjoy together!
