Educator and author, Amy Alamar. EdD and award-winning journalist, Sarah Cody combine their expertise in education and news reporting to bring you a show that helps you understand what’s going on in the news and how it affects your family. Terrorist attacks, sex scandals, and stories of children separated from parents are enough to make you want to turn off the news and shelter your family. But, talking about these current topics helps you to share your own perspective and support your children in developing theirs. They’re bound to hear something through the grapevine (or their preferred social media), so why not help them navigate. With the addition of special guests, we can dig deep into current events and help you unpack it.

AMAZING AND TRULY POWERFUL

Parenting beyond the headlines
One might think that with two kids already out of the house and doing well, I wouldn’t need advice to “finish” with the third, but I find these podcasts especially helpful dealing with issues that weren’t much of a factor when my first two were her age. Very helpful! Thanks!
