When A Co-Parent Is Narcissistic
It is extremely challenging to raise a child with a highly self-absorbed co-parent who moves through life with a sense of entitlement and an unwillingness to acknowledge the needs and feelings of others. In this episode, Susan discusses narcissism and invites listeners to a free webinar with Wendy Behary, her co-facilitator of a Co-Parenting With a Narcissist support group.
Raising Boys With Maggie Dent
In this conversation, Susan speaks with Maggie Dent, author of From Boys to Men, about offering support and maintaining strong connection with boys—even as they move into a stage where it seems they want nothing to do with us. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-raising-boys/
Raising Creative Activists With Kathy Eldon and Jessica Burnquist
In this episode, you’ll hear practical ideas for helping your children impact the world around them. You’ll also hear the extraordinary story of how the son of Creative Visions founder Kathy Eldon bettered the lives of those around him until his passing in 1993 in Somalia where he was working as a photojournalist.
Children often believe that they aren't smart or that a subject is too hard if the way they're taught is incompatible with their preferred learning style. In this episode, Susan shares the importance of helping children understand the varied flavors of intelligence, and the importance of each.

Perfect episode at the perfect time
I am a graduate student working on finishing up the counseling program and brainstorming some projects I could do at my internship site. One thing I noticed so far into the school year is how difficult the changes are on the students and how much tougher it is on the parents. We have received a number of calls from the parents, some are asking for guidance and others are telling us how they are praying for our wellbeing because they understand how tough our jobs are as educators. I was actually brainstorming setting up some support services for parents and this episode provided me with some great resources, thank you!
Such a respite.
I love this podcast. It helps me to learn and reflect on being a parent. Thank you Susan!
