    How to get your kids to sleep after the time change

    Fall back, spring forward. The time change can mess with a kid's sleep. Yeah, we gain an extra hour of it this time of year but baby sleep expert Marietta Paxon says because kids' bodies often tell them to wake up after they've slept the appropriate amount of hours, they're likely going to be up early and refusing naps at their normal time. So how do you fix it? Marietta from LittleDreamers.us has tips to help every parent if they find themselves losing sleep after the time change.

    How to help your family through pandemic whiplash

    How to help your family through pandemic whiplash

    What is pandemic whiplash, you ask? Well, when you really get whiplash injuries often have delayed symptoms. Many of the damage that we experience from COVID is also delayed---financially, mentally, physically, etc. Whiplash has a wide spectrum of damage possibilities and treatments. For example if there is major tissue or spinal damage, a heating pad and or pain killers will not reverse the damage. Mental and physical effects of COVID are going to be different for every individual and we could be treating our COVID anxiety and symptoms with the wrong treatment. Which is why understanding the emotion cycle and paying attention to our own emotions is so important. Host Lindsay Aerts talks with Mollie Pettingill, host of The Dear Daughter Workshop all about how to do this.

As Mann ,

Thank you

I appreciate how honest and candid Lindsey is about postpartum mood disorders. Because of her continued talk and discussion around these (not just a one time thing) it helped me finally identify it in myself and gain the courage to talk to my husband and Doctor. I was able get the help I need. And I am healing. Thank you for taking on tough topics and not flossing over them.

Change the intro ASAP

I really enjoyed the content discussed today, but please change the intro to the podcast! It is patronizing and made me want to turn it off before the show even started. This announcer is not a good fit for this program or audience. It would be better to just have the host introduce the show.
