    Practical Advice for Getting Kids to Talk

    Practical Advice for Getting Kids to Talk

    I have 5 children and as they've grown I have learned some practical things you can do today to get your kids talking. Yes, we have talked about how to approach subjects big and small on this podcast but I haven't really dug into any ways to actually get your kids talking. In this episode, I hit on some of the things I have found the most success with for my family.

    Closing Out 2019 and looking into 2020

    Closing Out 2019 and looking into 2020

    I hope you have enjoyed listening to the podcast this past year. Stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new has been incredibly humbling and at moments downright scary. Talking, in general, is not my strong point and talking to new people even less so. I shall push on into the new year. I hope to have some episodes featuring real-life conversations with kids as well as some more interviews with parents who are walking alongside me and doing an amazing job.

    Interview with Kerensa Wing - Serving and Teenagers

    Interview with Kerensa Wing - Serving and Teenagers

    Kerensa Wing is a high school principal with an uncommon approach to doing her job. She is dedicated to working with children and young people and her unique approach recently garnered her attention at the national level and she was award National Principal of the Year.

    She is playful and engaging with the student she serves and has even been featured in a carpool karaoke-style video singing the theme song to Fresh Prince of BelAire. She has a unique vision for developing leaders among her students and it is that unique approach of service and servant leadership I will be discussing with her in today’s episode of the Conversation Podcast.

    Here’s a rundown of how the call will go so you aren’t caught off guard. We’ll start out with 3-4 minutes of you telling us about yourself. Then we’ll spend 4-7 minutes talking about the service program/philosophy you have going at the school. Last we’ll spend 4-7 minutes talking about ways parents can talk with their children about serving, what you advise the parents of your students to do at home to support what you are teaching them at school.

    Interview with Steve Montoya - Talking With Your Kid's Friends

    Interview with Steve Montoya - Talking With Your Kid's Friends

    I remember when Jason and I started to like each other as more than just friends. There was a thrill and rush of excitement when I realized that he liked me too, but it was quickly paired with apprehension. Jason’s friends began to tease me that I’d be getting a ‘Steve Talk’ pretty soon. They all then retold stories of times Steve had sat down with them and talked with them about their lives, this probably shouldn’t have been scary but I didn’t have conversations with my own parents about these things.

    It was unfamiliar territory for me to have parents intentionally engage with and talk with me. I knew my friends talked with their own parents more than I talked with mine, but I had never had any of them dig in a talk to me too.

    In this Episode we hear from Steve on how he engaged with his kids' friends and how he plans on engaging with his grandchildren in the future.

    Let me go ahead and dispell any myths that my family is perfect and that my children are always sweet and kind. They are children and like all children, they have their moments. In this episode you'll hear me talk with our middle child after a particularly rough day with him.
