October 6 (Becki) Body confidence isn’t about appearance (28 minutes)

Every parent wants their kids to feel good about their bodies, but here’s the tricky thing about body confidence: It has little to do with feeling good about our appearance, and much more to do with feeling good inside.

October 13 (Linda) Raising kids is taking a toll on my relationship. What can I do? (30 minutes) https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/raising-kids-is-taking-a-toll-on-my-relationship-what-can-i-do/id1561689671?i=1000530140764

Being in a marriage or partnership is hard and when you’re raising young kids together, maintaining a healthy relationship comes with entirely new challenges.

October 20 (Becki) How do I handle being rejected by my child? (31 minutes)

When your child says things like “I only love Mommy” or “Go away, I want Daddy to give me a bath!”, it’s easy to feel like you’re doing something wrong. Remember this: Your child’s rejection is not a barometer of your parenting. In these moments, there’s nothing wrong with the in-favor parent, the out-of-favor parent, or the child. In fact, your child’s rejection is a sign that they feel safe enough in your presence to even express their displeasure.

October 27 (Linda) I struggle with codependency. How do I raise my kids differently? (25 minutes)

One of the best things we can do as parents is recognize the traits we need to repair in ourselves, so we don’t unintentionally pass them on to our kids. If you grew up defining who you are based on other people’s reactions, it can be hard to tune in to your own wants and needs. But it’s never too late to change these patterns.
