    Ep. 53 - Homeschooling and Music with Gabi Haberer

    Ep. 53 - Homeschooling and Music with Gabi Haberer

    2020 is a year that will be talked about and remembered for a long time. And I think that one of the main things that we are going to see in the coming years are changes to educational systems and long-held beliefs.
    When covid hit and lockdowns started to be part of our lives, every parent had to become a kind of a homeschooler. While some of us are happy to bring the kids back to school, some are willing to continue in the homeschooling adventure to some capacity.
    But doing homeschooling right requires knowledge, support, and understanding. This is why in today's episode I'm talking with Gabi Haberer. Once a school principal and now a homeschooling mom and a proponent of homeschooling, Gabi devotes her career to help parents transition to homeschool via her online community.
    Join me in this discussion with Gabi about homeschooling, music education, and more.

    Ep. 52 - Learning Difficulties with Nicole Santamaria

    Ep. 52 - Learning Difficulties with Nicole Santamaria

    What do you do if your child is having trouble learning? What do you do if they have all the good intentions but something is stuck or holding them back? In this episode, I'm talking with Nicole Santamaria, OTR/L, about helping children cope with learning difficulties. We're talking about what keeps children from learning, and what can you, as a parent, can do to help. This is especially important as schools are literally changing around us as we are coming to a year after covid-19 started, so there's a lot for you to learn.

    Ep. 51 - Parenting the Gifted Child with Dr. Jodi Svendsen

    Ep. 51 - Parenting the Gifted Child with Dr. Jodi Svendsen

    Learning that your child is gifted may seem like good news for many parents. However, giftedness has its problems and struggles as well, and if you don't really understand what are the inner workings of the gifted brain, you're in trouble.

    Luckily, in today's episode, I'm talking with Dr. Jodi Svendsen, who is an expert on the topic of gifted children. You'll learn what makes the brains of gifted children unique (hint: it's not their super-intelligence), and what parents can do to help their children balance the needs and wants of family, schools, and friends.

    Ep. 50 - Time to Time Travel

    Ep. 50 - Time to Time Travel

    Welcome to the 50th episode of The Apparently Parent Podcast! Yay! I'm so happy you're here, celebrating this with me. When I started working on this podcast, I didn't think we're going to go through a global pandemic, lockdowns, and all that stuff, but we did, and I think that working on this podcast, putting out a weekly episode even with all that was happening, was one of the things that really helped me manage those tougher times.
    To celebrate this achievement, I put up a special episode, in which I invite you to travel back in time.
    You see, in the podcast, I sometimes talk with interesting guests who have something to say about children, parenting, and the in-between. And I have started to ask each guest one specific question at the end of the conversation. And this question goes a little bit like this:
    If you could go back in time, and meet your younger self, right before you became a parent, what would you like to tell that younger self?
    I really like this question, because as a therapist, I think this mental time travel can be really powerful. Whether we are moving backward or forward in time, as long as we keep the perspective, we can actually learn a lot and help ourselves in the process.
    By going back in time and "talking" with your younger self, you can find a new place of compassion, understanding, and wisdom within yourself. You might also see how much you have progressed and grown through the years.
    In this episode, I invite you to listen to the answers that my wonderful guests have provided to this question. I hope you'd take the time and listen because I'm sure you might find yourself in one or more of the answers.
    And after you listen, I invite you to think about this question yourself and answer it on your own. Maybe take a piece of paper, or open a fresh page in your journal and write it down. There are no wrong answers here. And, if you want, share it on your social media, who knows, you might inspire someone else (if you do share it, please tag me on Instagram @apparentlyparent or the Apparently Parent Facebook page).

    Ep. 49 - ENCORE: Talk About Political Stress with Children

    Ep. 49 - ENCORE: Talk About Political Stress with Children

    As America is stepping into a new presidency, at the end of a tumultuous couple of weeks, I wanted to re-publish an older episode. This was originally published in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement after the murder of George Floyd. Back then I wanted to talk about how we, as parents, have a responsibility to address those issues with our children, and proposed some ways to do so.

    I think it's a good moment in history to address these issues again. Whether you live in the US or not, it's good to be able to talk with your children about what is going on in the political and social spheres of our lives. By creating an open dialogue, you can help your children become more aware and conscious. And I am one who believes that this is important if we want to create a better world.
