    Rewrite The Rules

    Rewrite The Rules

    Welcome! The Grow Your Mind Podcast is a mental health education podcast hosted by kids for kids.

    This episode the kids are talking about blue and pink. Like why is it baby girls are given pink things and baby boys blue things? Is it okay for boys to play netball, and if not, who made up that rule?

    Listen to the kids debate and discuss why girls and boys should be friends and why being friends with the other genders is actually good for our wellbeing.

    The Problem We All Live With

    The Problem We All Live With

    Surprise! Our podcast is back by popular demand. This episode is a BIG one, probably best for upper primary school students.  Miss Thea’s awesome class talk about racism, respect, empathy and curiosity.   

    During the Meet The Experts section we hear from a bunch of truly wonderful kids from Gawura School, a Kindergarten to Year 6 school for local Aborignal and Torres Strait Islander children located in Sydney’s CBD. They share some interesting facts about their culture, as well as some words from their various language groups and they also read a powerful dreamtime story about listening and talking less.

    We thank and have huge respect for all the people having brave, awkward and important conversations with their children and communities. This episode was inspired by the words of Austin Channing Brown about being a better human and the joyful attitudes of the Gawura School kids.

    - The podcast reflection journal
    - Watching our Meet the Animals animation

    - Listening to Episode 1 of the podcast
