    A Father’s Day Celebration with Baron Davis and Steve Luczo

    A Father’s Day Celebration with Baron Davis and Steve Luczo

    With Father’s Day just around the corner, we sat down with two of our favorite dads, former NBA star Baron Davis, and tech chair Steve Luczo, to discuss some of their favorite fatherhood rituals. 
    Cultivated with more intention than a habit, rituals offer the opportunity to connect more deeply with your children, whether it’s getting up early for breakfast together or writing letters to them that they can open up when they’re older. Being a parent isn’t just about being around. Learn some effective ways to “build bridges” with your children, cultivate a sense of bonding, and celebrate fatherhood in all its many forms.

    Wild Wonders of the Outdoors: The Benefits of Playing Outside During Coronavirus and Beyond

    Wild Wonders of the Outdoors: The Benefits of Playing Outside During Coronavirus and Beyond

    This episode was recorded before the onset of COVID-19, and has been amended to reflect current guidelines and research.
    Most of us can remember one time or another when our parents strongly encouraged us to “Go outside!” While they probably wanted us to burn off some kinetic energy built up throughout the school day, studies continue to show that outdoor playtime is ripe with benefits for growing children. 
    Even under orders to shelter in place, spending time outdoors (at a safe distance) can be extremely beneficial to both children and adults who have been cooped up inside. Not only does time spent outside improve mental development and spatial recognition, it also boosts mood, clarity of focus, and even wards away nearsightedness. If you don’t have a yard, don’t despair; getting to a nearby park or going hiking offer great opportunities to soak in all the benefits that nature has to offer!

    “When people who have ADHD spend time outdoors, their symptoms tend to get better, and if it’s outdoors in nature, better yet.” [05:38]
    “In many ways play is kids’ work. It’s one of the best things they can do for their body, for their mind, for their social skills. It’s fabulous.” [07:52]

    There’s No Place Like Om: Supportive Practices for Family with Hilaria Baldwin

    When situations become tense or stressful, remembering to breathe is usually the last thing on anyone’s mind. It’s ironic, then, that this is one of the best tools to help both the body and mind reset, calming the senses and taking us out of fight or flight response. 
    Agatha and Dr. Greene sit down to chat with health and wellness enthusiast Hilaria Baldwin. A mother, yoga instructor and co-host of the Mom Brain podcast, Hilaria shares some of the practices that keep her family feeling grounded at home, even getting the littlest members involved in yoga! Incorporating breathwork and a healthy dose of gratitude, Hilaria illustrates simple customs that can calm even the most rambunctious kids (and parents!).

    Patience and Forgiveness: Skills for Work and Parenting with Katya Libin

    Patience and Forgiveness: Skills for Work and Parenting with Katya Libin

    We know there are lots of people out there managing parenthood and careers, made all the more complex by the current landscape influenced by COVID-19. In this special episode, Agatha interviews the co-founder and CEO of HeyMama, Katya Libin, as she discusses the mission behind HeyMama, and the ways in which being a parent and entrepreneur have helped inform each other.
    HeyMama aims to help mothers in the workforce connect, collaborate and learn from one another. Katya reflects upon her role as mother and CEO, and how managing company culture is surprisingly similar to creating an atmosphere in the home that is guiding and supportive to children. Integral to that is the presence of ritual and gratitude, values Bambini Furtuna holds dear to the heart! (Keep an eye out for future collaborations between these two!)

Good Team — The way it’s supposed to be!

Doctors know so much about kids’ health. Parents know so much about their own kids. It’s when they work together that the best info comes out. Good job, Agatha and Dr. Greene

pumped!!! ,

Everything I want to ask Dr.

It’s so fresh refreshing to hear a conversation between a mom and dr. I always feel so rushed and like I can only ask questions when things are wrong. I’ve learned so much from this podcast!

Worth every second

Educational, inspirational and inspiring.
