    How To Unlock Grit in an Unpredictable World (with Angela Duckworth)

    How To Unlock Grit in an Unpredictable World (with Angela Duckworth)

    If you’ve ever sat through professional development as an educator, you’ve heard of Angela Duckworth. Both her research and personal experience in the classroom suggests that IQ isn’t always helpful in determining successful outcomes for students. Rather, a more important predictor of success is “grit,” a growth mindset, and feeling like you have a purpose that’s bigger than yourself. So how do we unlock grit and resilience in our kids, especially when the world is so uncertain and unpredictable? And what kind of impact will this period in our history have on our kids in the longterm? “Both the very recent events of the last few weeks and the still recent events of the last few months in the pandemic are all exactly what I study...this is historic.”

    How To Embrace The Moment, Especially When It’s Uncomfortable (with Briony May Williams)

    How To Embrace The Moment, Especially When It’s Uncomfortable (with Briony May Williams)

    Great British Bake Off and Food Unwrapped star Briony May Williams reflects on the COVID19 pandemic and recent Black Lives Matter uprising, and what she can do as the parent of a young child to have these uncomfortable conversations in a way that feels safe and loving. Also, baking! She talks about baking. “It's uncomfortable and it's awkward, but it's so important...and I think it's finding that moment where it's appropriate to have that conversation. It’s so important to have it because we can't just sit in our bubble anymore and say, ‘It's fine, nothing's going on.’”

    How To Talk About Your Unique Family (with Peter Rider)

    How To Talk About Your Unique Family (with Peter Rider)

    Stay-at-home dad Peter Rider shares his experience--the good, the bad, and the funny--with being detailed and clear when talking to his kids about all sorts of things. From having two gay dads to contracting head lice and more, he believes being explicit is the way to go. “One thing that I've been thinking about a lot over the past year, especially as my kids get a little older, is the balance between modeling behaviors vs. being really explicit and explaining things. I think I started out thinking that when it comes to values, kids really learn by seeing. But I think increasingly I've thought...about how you actually have to be really explicit about some things.”

    How To Make Peace with TV (with Rebecca Carroll)

    How To Make Peace with TV (with Rebecca Carroll)

    Rebecca Carroll is a cultural critic, host of WYNC’s Come Through podcast, and critic at large for the Los Angeles Times. TL;DR: She is qualified to talk about television. But during quarantine, she’s found herself reexamining the role TV plays in her own family and how it’s actually a pretty good thing when times are particularly tough. “I just don't think that this whole screen time thing is as negative as a lot of folks do. So long as I can have a conversation with my kid about what he is consuming, so long as I can have a conversation with him about what he is thinking, I am pretty lax about screentime.”

Dan Levin

I’m currently listening to the 1st episode and being someone that has seen many family members go through this, I think one of the biggest reasons children choose to not talk about it stems from the fear of possibly getting your parent or uncle, aunt in trouble.. ultimately all these kids love whoever it is despite what they do. They know who they were before. I just wanted to put that into perspective as well because I think it plays a huge factor. I do agree that everyone wants someone to talk to though. It is the most important like you said.

Had high hopes

I had high hopes to love this podcast but it’s just not doing it for me. Seems like there just isn’t much ‘meat’ to the episodes
