Show Notes

When it comes to parenting (and being in any kind of human relationship) - one of the most insanely humbling and difficult practices is repairing a rupture in the relationship. Maybe you've wronged the other person - maybe you were the one wronged - either way, the process of repairing often requires more than an 'I'm sorry'. Compound this difficulty with previous experiences with trauma, adversity and stress and you've got yourself a recipe for...well...being a human in this world. It's difficult. It's complicated. It's absolutely essential if you want to build or maintain a trusting, real relationship in this world. 

That's why we brought ETC training specialist Jesse Faris and co-writer of Cultivate Connection Becca McKay in to talk about how we repair relational ruptures with our kids and each other. There are some invaluable practical stories of how this plays out as well as a road map for a process to begin those repairs.

When Self Care Doesn't Cut It with Carissa Woodwyk

Self care is a hot topic these days - in fact, it's been a topic of conversation on our show several times. What happens, though, when your self care doesn't cut it?

Marriage and Family Therapist and longtime friend of ETC Carissa Woodwyk joins us to talk about how we have to move beyond self care to self compassion to be whole.  To learn more about Carissa's work and thoughts, follow her on Instagram @weneedoneanother or like her on Facebook !

Connecting Practice: Cultivate a Growth Mindset

Last week we talked about the Connecting Practice Chasing the Why - how to see the needs behind our kids' behavior and meet those needs in order to bring healing. This episode is the needed followup to last week. If the conversation about Growth Mindsets vs Fixed Mindsets sounds familiar, it's because this phrase has become a buzz word/buzz phrase in recent years - especially in the world of academics.  In this episode we tilt the conversation a different way and look at what it means to parent with a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset. JD, along with Mo and Tona Ottinger look at where this term came from and how we as parents/caregivers can embrace the patience, humility and curiosity needed to model this for our kids.
