Parenting Our Future

When your kids aren’t sleeping and you aren’t sleeping, it’s a recipe for a lot of frustration.  If your child exhibits signs like irritability, lack of attention, stalls at bedtime or gets up frequently, they might have a sleep disorder.  Sometimes, kids are diagnosed with ADHD and it’s really their sleep that’s the problem.

Parenting Our Future

Let’s face it, all we know about how to be in a relationship is what was modeled for us by our parents or what we see in the media. We are never really taught how to be in a relationship. With all relationships, there will be conflict and that is something we definitely haven’t been taught.

Parenting Our Future

What is the difference between a standard and a boundary anyway? Well, my guest Bridget Richard is helping us understand the difference so we can live our lives with more authenticity and peace! In short, she says that a standard is a “start behavior” that is based on your wants and needs and a boundary is a “stop behavior” based on controlling the other person.

More Episodes

On July 27th Instagram announced that they are creating an experience that’s safe and private for young people (age 13-16).  This is good news for parents who worry about their children’s activity on the app.  

My guest on this episode is Instagram’s Head of Safety and Wellbeing, Vaishnavi.  She explains how Instagram is taking a layered approach to make the platform more safe for youth by:

Stopping unwanted contact

Manage comments

Mute and restrict accounts

Changing how advertisers can reach young people

Filtering words, phrases and bullying comments

 

In the Parent toolbox (details below) you can download their PARENT GUIDE that walks through all this information and how to use their settings to protect your teen.  The guide includes conversation starters and additional resources. 

Below are some accounts you might want to follow for up to date online safety information
