    Encore: Our special guest was Mr. Armah Shiancoe, Anna's teacher. Mr. Shiancoe is a speaker, youth advocate and coach in the community, and had just written a book called, Leadership is a Choice. We  talked to him about how his life experiences have influenced his teaching style, on the topic of "Raising Young Leaders". This is a GREAT episode to listen to with your teen.

    We discuss:

    - How kids look to parents as role models, watching everything they are doing. It is so important for parents to always keep in mind.

    - How he incorporates “life lessons” into his curriculum and  his teaching style. He feels we should always be learning from our mistakes.

    - Mr. Shiancoe, tell us about a lesson he learned the “hard” way in college that really humbled him and made him "wake up".

     - He tells us that  one of the greatest gifts we all get is CHOICE. His philosophy in teaching is that it is better to focus on "who you want to BE in life, not what you want to DO in life."

    - How important it is in making sure your work life reflects your interests and your passion, versus just focusing on what you “should” do, or a job that solely focuses on money.

    - Generalized, transferable skills are so  important to learn because you can use them in any situation or area of life.

     -  We discuss the fact that millennials and members of the Gen Z interpret the working world differently. What can we do to keep them engaged and take advantage of their unique skill set?

    - How he feels that young people can go about finding their voice and learning to advocate for themselves --To be able to be self reflective; figure out what they need, effectively express it and understand not everyone is going to meet that need and then move forward.

    Mr. Shiancoe's book is all about his quest and thirst for knowledge, specifically leadership. He truly believes that leadership can be made at any moment. Then once you have that in you, you have the responsibility to go out and empower others.

    Co parenting is hard! Tara knows this firsthand.  Co Parent counseling and coaching is one of Tara's focuses in her practice.  So, today Tara and Anna come together for a solo episode and Tara takes the role of teacher to impart her extensive knowledge in co-parenting in this episode titled, “Co parenting versus Parallel Parenting, What's the Difference?”
    In her many years of working with separated and divorced clients, Tara has found some creative ways to manage a co-partnership for anyone, but especially those that have stressful relationships with their ex.
    Most parents main goal is to create the best situation for their children, and for everyone to get along. That can be easier said then done though. Often there is lingering  resentment, anger, and lack of trust with their co-parent. So what do you do when there is tension and conflict between parents?


    Tune in as:

    Tara defines what each parenting situation (co-parenting and parallel parenting) is and what the differences are between them.

    Positive and negatives for each situation.

    Tips for parents in each parenting situation.

    Great takeaway: If parents are able to put aside relationship differences, it exponentially increases the chances of children adjusting and transitioning between both homes.

So real, so relatable

Love this concept of including an actual teen! It doesn't get any more real than that. Dr. Egan exemplifies the sound concepts she shares, proving it really works. Her books are amazing as well!
