The Addiction Inoculation with Jessica Lahey
40:02We all want to keep our children safe. But we also want them to become self-sufficient, fully formed adults; so how do we balance both? This question is always challenging to answer, but particularly so when it comes to exposure to drugs and alcohol. New York Times bestselling author Jessica Lahey joins us today to discuss her new book, The Addiction Inoculation, in which she details, through story and research, how to 'raise healthy kids in a culture of dependence.' She talks about finding the right balance between the risk factors and protective factors in a child's life and how to prioritize your child's social-emotional health over the constant pursuit of perfection.
The New Adolescence with Dr. Christine Carter
40:56The world is changing. Rapidly. And while that's news to no one, its effects can sometimes range further than we initially realize. Teenage lives are far from untouched; actually, it seems like they may be more affected than almost any other age group. And when it comes to parenting those teenagers, the methods that may have worked when we were growing up seem less and less relevant, and less and less effective. Dr. Christine Carter has picked up on these trends. Through both research and her personal experience as a mom of four, she has dug deep into what she is calling this 'new adolescence' to figure out how best to guide our teens into adulthood. She is here today to share her findings and wisdom with us in a deeply knowledgeable but approachable way, which is sure to leave you inspired to connect even more deeply with your children.

Thrivers with Dr. Michele Borba
43:12If we were to boil down our hopes and dreams for our children into one word, it would be hard to think of a better one than 'thrive'. No matter the specifics, we want to see our kids be happy, healthy, and successful. But, due to social pressures and outdated cultural norms, it can be easy to put our parental energy in the wrong places on our quest to help thrive. So how do we help them become their fullest selves? Dr. Michele Borba has taken the better part of 40 years to answer that question. She is an internationally renowned educator, award-winning author, and parenting child expert recognized for her solution-based strategies to strengthen children’s character, resilience, and reduce peer cruelty. All of that experience has led to her most recent book, Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine. Through vigorous research, she has uncovered the seven essential traits that kids (and adults) need to thrive. She joins our hosts today to discuss her findings and offer parents of every stage encouragement and guidance on how to best guide our children's social and emotional development.
