    Rachel Brace - Children's Books On How To Deal With The Emotions of Separation And Divorce

    What do you say to a child when you’re about to separate or get a divorce? Books are often a great way to help children understand complex issues such as these. But where do you find them?


    On today’s podcast, I’ll be talking with Rachel Brace, an author and psychologist who works with children, adolescents and their parents/caregivers who are in situations of family conflict, separation and divorce.


    Rachel has a keen interest in stepfamilies and in working with and supporting parents, stepparents and co-parents who are adjusting to shared care arrangements. Rachel’s previous work experience includes nine years with the Australian Family Law Courts as a Court appointed psychologist/Family Consultant.


    Since 2014 Rachel has been consulting privately in Sydney, providing Single Expert services in Family Law matters as well as therapeutic support to parents, children and young people facing transition, loss, growth and change. Originally from New Zealand, Rachel now lives in Sydney with her family.


    In this podcast, we’ talking about:


    How children perceive separation and divorce

    The losses these children experience

    When to talk about separation and divorce to our children

    How to help the children deal with their emotions in healthy ways


    To learn more about Rachel and her books, go to www.kinshipbooks.com and read her blog at Stepping Through

    How To Connect With Your Child and Help Them Sleep Better And Reclaim Your Evenings

    How To Connect With Your Child and Help Them Sleep Better And Reclaim Your Evenings

    What would you give to not have your kids or stepkids argue, fight or resist going to bed every night?


    I remember when our kids were young, there were times when it seemed to take forever to have them go to bed, let alone fall asleep. Bedtime meant alone time for me and my husband not to mention the health benefits of our kids, making sure they had enough sleep.


    On Today’s podcast, I’m talking with Brook Packard, a writer, musician and an early childhood educator who created the Sleepytime Club which makes bedtime simple for families, helping parents reclaim their evenings. She believes bedtime is the first, best habit; a moment of grace to us every single night; and that we can change the world for the better by using this time to care for ourselves and our families and communities. 


    You can learn more about Brook at sleepytimeclub.com.

    Dealing With Postpartum Depression

    Dealing With Postpartum Depression

    Having a baby is one of the most precious event a woman can go through. It’s life changing.  But when you're faced with postpartum depression, that joy can be taken away from you and the family.


    Postpartum is a topic that not many women care to talk about. It seems so unmotherly. Yet as Leslie McKeough, a licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in postpartum adjustment and perinatal loss shared with us, close to 90% of women today will suffer some form of postpartum depression.


    Leslie's approach combines support, education and counseling.  She often works with women and their partners in the recovery process as postpartum difficulties affect the whole family.  She also has several years experience working with adolescents and families.


    If you or someone you know suffers from postpartum depression, go to www.corevalu.com or visit https://www.postpartum.net/ to find out where you can get help today.

    The Power of Forgiveness with Taylor Tagg

    The Power of Forgiveness with Taylor Tagg

    Do you feel like your stepkids or the ex have done you wrong and you have a hard time letting go? Are you feeling bitter and resentful at how your life is turning out?




    Maybe it's time to think about forgiveness. Forgiveness is not about letting the others walk all over you, or to let them get away with their bad behaviors or action. For starters, forgiveness is letting go of the pain and sting that the person's actions have done against you. Forgiveness is an act of self love.


    Forgiving another person is probably one of the hardest things we might ever have to do.


    If you're in a place where you are tired of feeling the wait of the anger and resentment on your shoulders, this is the show for you.


    Taylor Tagg is the author of the book "The Path To A Peaceful Heart" and a Forgiveness Educator and Facilitator at The Midwest Institute for Forgiveness Training
