For people who consider themselves to be artists, making time for creativity can feel as important as breathing. However, for the rest of us, we might dismiss the concept of cultivating creativity as something “cute” that only other people have time for. We might feel like creativity is simply an unnecessary luxury that doesn’t mesh with the practical responsibilities of life. However, creativity is a key component to wholehearted living for ALL of us. In this episode, we discuss ways for everyone, regardless of interests, personality, and responsibilities, can benefit from engaging with the creative spark in all of us. Creation feeds our souls.

Life often seems to be pulsing or pushing;  it has a hum beneath us telling us to go, making us honk in traffic and get mad at the slower person in line. This hum can create anxiety and stress in us and our children, but often, we don’t question it. In this episode, Felica talks with Carl Honore, author of In Praise of Slowness about how we can be free from that constant rushing hum.  Related Episodes Craving a Slow Down?

In a few weeks our kids will be home for the summer, and our daily schedules will change drastically. A lot of jokes, angst and dread can surround this time of year. Let’s start as we mean to go on! In this episode, we are sharing some of our favorite tips for designing our summer. We touch on creating and setting boundaries from the start, letting our kids be and resisting screen entertaining.  If we have learned anything this year, it is that being fluid and available for change can help us live in the present and create a calm atmosphere in our homes. As we let them be free to work through the B word (boredom!) we will come out the other side with having enjoyed our summer together!

The search for simplicity and slow can be overwhelming. As we looked for where to start the prompting to go inside was reoccurring. In this we start with clearing and cleaning up our mind first. How can we free up our minds, create more mental minimalism to live in the present moment, while still accomplishing our goals and managing our lives day to day? Do you have too many big rocks in your jar? We explore the concept of balance and where we may be confusing balance with perfectionism and bringing awareness to the time we realistically have. Lastly we touch on time, not getting stuck in our thoughts of the past or pushing for the future but how we can live here in this moment.

We all have the same 24 hours in a day. And yet, somehow, it often seems like others somehow are doing more, accomplishing more with their time and we are left feeling like failures. We have people who need us, responsibilities to fulfill, and what can seem like an endless to do list that we are never caught up on. This can lead to us chasing after achieving and we end up in a space of burnout and being constantly busy. In this episode, we hash out how we ourselves struggle with the balance between accomplishment and calm, and the things we have found helpful as we search for the elusive balance.

Most of us say that happiness is something that we want, and society is all too willing to volunteer a recipe for finding it. If only we had the right size house, in the right neighborhood, with the right job, then we would be happy. In this episode, Jess Klaznick helps us recalculate happiness as she shares her family’s journey to joy. She found that after achieving the recipe that society offered to her for happiness, she was surprised that the happiness promised didn’t automatically follow. She and her husband sold much of their belongings to travel the world with their children, and the insights she gained along the way are both inspiring and helpful.

When we have a child who is misbehaving, it is easy to see him or her as a “problem child”. We don't want to crush our child, but also don't want to be so loose that our child becomes a tyrant. The paradox is that as we see our children for their worth and raise them in their own power we can begin to feel feelings of frustration, that we aren't listened to or disrespected. This can cause us to swing wildly from extreme discipline to lax parenting. We can find ourselves at a loss as to how we can maintain some semblance of order and connection in our homes. In this episode, Felica explores this dynamic with Joe Newman, author of the incredible book, Raising Lions.  Joe has decades of experience working with children whose behavior is so difficult that they are medicated, sent to other learning facilities, etc.  His work has helped countless children who have been labeled as a lost cause, and has given relief and hope to many parents who are at their wit’s end. He explains how we can use compassion within structure and firm boundaries as we navigate raising our children by finding the balance between power and connection.

Even though it can FEEL like there is one right way to parent in any situation; in our hearts we know that isn't true. We can feel the parenting advice that aligns with our personality. We can see the change in our child when we are acknowledging them for who they are. Parenting is not a one size fits all for us or our kids.  This week we are distilling concepts from the book The Child Whisperer by Carol Tuttle. Her unique take on recognizing our child's nature guides us to a more true interpretation of their needs and how we can guide them true to their personality, energy and desires! We loved this book so much and think you will too. If you are feeling at odds with one or more of your children and need a reset; this unique way of interacting with your children may be just the thing you need!

When most of us think of our experiences with conflict in communication, we feel emotions ranging from mild discomfort to full fledged panic or dread. In this episode,  we explore our approach to conflict with Clair Canfield, a brilliant professor on the subject of communication. He models what he teaches throughout this conversation and he offers us amazing tools to help us improve our relationships by holding space for others and changing our lens about what it means to connect with others. Clair's pillars of communication are nothing short of groundbreaking and have changed our approach forever.  Here they are: 1. Belief in the capacity to change 2. Belief in self determination (people have the right and ability to choose. Advice giving is counterintuitive) 3. Everyone has dignity 4. Safety- do not cause harm 5. Ethic of care (benevolence) You can watch Clair’s Tedx talk here, and his website is Canfieldconsulting.net.

Connection is a foundational pillar of our parenting philosophy on Find the Magic along with boundaries, unconditional love and presence; we view connection as the vital, healing salve that can repair wounds and refill our empty buckets. In today's episode, we break down how we can connect with our kids, ourselves, and our spouse.  Filling our own bucket first allows us to connect with others. We offer some of our favorite tips for reconnecting with yourself and specifically how reconnecting with our bodies can remedy feelings of burnout and exhaustion. How gratitude offers us strength through trying times and realizing that we are connected with those who came before us can bring perspective.  We dive deep into the traditional differences in need between males and females and how need for affection can collide with a need for sexual connection.  We wrap up with gentle reminders of how we may be distracted in our parenting and guide you in ways you can find little moments sprinkled in your day where you can take advantage of connecting with your kids (even in discipline!**).  Books that inspired this episode  His Needs Her Needs // Willard F Harley Jr  Elevated Childcare // Janet Lansbury Our Related Episodes:  How to Embrace Childhood   Putting Connection First   How To Parent Less and Love it More p.s.

Dinner can be the most joyful part of our day but often the preparation and pressure of getting something on the table brings stress instead of enjoyment with our family. If you strive to meal plan, make homemade meals and enjoy dinner time tune in! In 2021 we are focusing on being essential, minimizing the extra energy expenditures that cause us friction and burnout. In this episode we have a wide ranging conversation about many tips that can bring you more joy in meal planning from ways to budget and buy in season to picky eaters and how we can include them in meal planning and prep. We touch on back pocket dinners (meals made from ingredients you already have on hand) like black beans, cheddar cheese and tortillas from the freezer! Or a simple parmesan pasta or tuna melts, this is your fail safe back up plan! As much as we want to meal plan our best intentions can be thwarted by time, expired ingredients or lack of energy. Back pocket dinners are your go to in these moments. We also discuss narrowing down our dinner favorites and add them to our reoccurring dinner list!  Meal planning is a task that brings many of us stress, Claire helps us see that it doesn't need to. We can choose to find joy in meal planning! How we start is how we mean to go on.

Being reactive and angry in our parenting is a feeling that weighs on many of us. There are times when your child does things that all children do like: expressing uncomfortable emotions, making big messes, wasting food, screaming/shouting LOUDLY, stalling endlessly while getting dressed, leaving the house, or getting ready for bed...and we lose our cool. As we embark on this journey of authenticity and finding ourselves inside parenting, the anxiety of failing to respond in a way that is honoring to our kids and ourselves can threaten to break us. We often find ourselves trying to change our children, looking for strategies that will guide us in how we can get them to do or not do something. In this episode with Jen Lumalan of Your Parenting Mojo Podcast, Felica and Jen have a wide ranging conversation about how we can flip that perception and recognize our childhood trauma and how nurturing ourselves can help us better nurture our children. They flesh out common parenting triggers like respect and defiance and how we can recognize when our patience skin is worn thin! In that recognition, we can give ourselves grace and space between the trigger and our response to our children. A space where trust is created inside our relationship, where our child trusts that our response will be connecting and loving. We have all experienced circumstances that weaken our ability to respond to our kids with love and respect. Hopefully this episode will offer your resource, encouragement and insight into how you can see those triggers and soften the effect they have on your relationships. Jen is offering a course for parents who would like more training on recognizing and taming our triggers.

In this episode, we had the honor once again of discussing different aspects of intimacy with the incredible Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife. She uses her extensive knowledge and wisdom about the subject of sexuality to help us navigate many different situations, such as when partners differ greatly in their level of desire for each other, how to journey through betrayal trauma, and she even gives tips on how to have a healthy relationship with your own sexuality while you are single.

How do you handle expectations? Are you a rule follower? A rule breaker? Do you do better when someone else expects you to do something, or are you motivated by your own expectations? We draw from Gretchin Rubin’s Four Tendencies and use that information to help understand yourself and what motivates you. As you discover this, it allows you the freedom to know how to get the things you want in life. You can learn to stop fighting your own nature and instead learn to learn what works.

We dive into a wide range of listener questions today! We start by exploring what the solitude of 2020 brought into our life, how to come to peace with our inner landscape and find connection where we can. We spend time on a deep dive into one of our most asked questions, dealing with our kids aggression and when they hurt other kids. We can remain calm, lean into emotions AND not become attached and let their emotions control ours. Our children's lives are intimately entwined in ours; this reveals itself in our third listener question about dealing with situations when our kids won't tell us their secret feelings or share their emotions. And finally we explore friendships in mothers, types of friends we need and how to deal with the loss of friendship that is no longer serving you or your child.  Related Episodes Finding Wisdom in Chaos Susan Stiffelman on Remaining Present While Parenting Guidance for the Changing seasons of Motherhood  Here is a list of ALL our favorite books, we use Audible as our library.

I was wondering if you had any advice on leaving children with a nanny or babysitter? do you worry about them following your same parenting guidelines or not so much?
