We all want our kids to be grateful when we give them wonderful experiences in life, and it can be alarming when they not only don’t show gratitude, but are full of complaints. In this episode, we address this issue and discuss how we can cultivate gratitude without layering on guilt for our kids. We also talk about one of our most common questions ever: yelling. It is sooooo easy to get caught up in the habit of yelling, and sometimes we can feel trapped because we don’t know how else to get our kids to listen. We give several concrete strategies to help this common issue, not just a philosophical discussion on the topic.

Have you ever been in the rut of the everyday? It can feel like a slog at times moving from one mundane task to the next. This shows up magnified in parenting when we are stuck on the treadmill of cleaning up spills, changing diapers, driving carpool, planning meals only to fall asleep exhausted and enter the next day that way! We easily catch ourselves living for our next date night, weekend away or perhaps even that day when “life will be easier, our kids will be older, we will have more money” etc. This episode we want to challenge that status quo. We want to share a concept with you that can awaken you to each of these moments and help you find the acceptance, joy and perhaps even enthusiasm in all of the parts of this life, small and big.

How do we raise boys in this fabulously challenging time? In this episode, we revisit our very favorite pieces of knowledge on the subject by combining our two most popular discussions about it. We address issues like how to cultivate respectful, strong, and kind boys by channeling their natural strengths (as opposed to simply suppressing all of their tendencies and making them feel like they are terrible all the time). We explore some fascinating psychology and hopefully help all of us raise boys who become men who are whole, respectful, humans who make this world a better place:). We also review the four pillars of connection, getting outside, sleep, and nutrition, and we tackle the challenges and opportunities that boys face at school and learning. We address the research on screen time and boys’ brains, and give you all sorts of tips to make screen time a pleasant activity with boundaries instead of an unlimited source of distraction and dependency. We have such an AMAZING opportunity as parents to really create a community where they can thrive with their own natural strengths, and we can help create a world where boys are taught to have emotional intelligence and access their internal world with confidence and love.

We are midway through the Summer, our kids are all home and life looks a little different. At Find the Magic we think seasons are a beautiful time to reflect and find insight and renewal. In this Magic Moment Felica will talk about being off social media and what awareness this has cultivated for her and how she is using this slower Summer schedule to do some inner work and see her children as a "garden" to tend to with love. She will also offer you some opportunities for pairing down your mind chatter and reducing the "rebound" of the outside world to find a little more clarity and creativity in your ventures.  RELATED EPISODES  Letting the Wave of Spring Carry Us Into a Joyful New Season Seeing Situations Clearly We are in the planning phases for the next year of Find the Magic and we need your feedback!

Control is a tricky thing. We sometimes want control everything when things are going wrong, and that becomes problematic when it involves other people. (Spoiler alert, we can’t control other people:). In this episode, we talk about how to balance having limits and healthy boundaries, while still allowing others, including our children, an appropriate amount of independence and autonomy.

Our bodies are our conduits for experiencing this life. It makes sense that caring for them from a place of love is a worthy investment for us. Self care is part of wholehearted living for both our body and our soul. Sometimes, when people talk about self care, they mention expensive hair products and elaborate pedicures. At Find the Magic, we are big fans of the kind of soul filling self care that is more about true fulfillment (think meditation, time with God, feeding our intellect, etc.). So, when it comes to our bodies, it makes sense that we like the idea of going beyond image based self care and going deeper into truly nourishing our body with foods and love. In this episode, Ali Essig, a plant-based holistic nutritionist and educator, gives us lots of priceless information on how vegetables and fruit are a beautiful, accessible form of self care. She gives practical tips on how to incorporate more of these life improving ingredients into our family’s eating habits in a really simple and reachable way.

Here at Find the Magic, we like to go deep. In fact, we love it. In this episode, we go way deep discussing Gary Zukav’s book, The Seat of the Soul.  We can see why Oprah loves his work so much. We explore how the personality is different from the soul, but “when the personality comes fully to serve the energy of its soul, that is authentic empowerment.” It takes practice and awareness to differentiate between the workings of our own personality and the growth of our soul. The tools we can use for this process are choosing intentions, adding clarity, practicing forgiveness, and distinguishing true needs from false ones. The umbrella that covers all of these topics is love. “An authentically powered person lives in love. Love is the energy of the soul. Love is what heals the personality. There is nothing that cannot be healed by love. There is nothing but love.” ― Gary Zukav RELATED EPISODES Finding Joy and Enthusiasm in Every Day THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED US: The Seat of the Soul // Gary Zukav EPISODE SPONSOR: Chamonix Skincare: This amazing skincare line is clean, comfortable, and produces wonderful results.

Having trouble paying attention? We all are. In this episode, we discuss Johann Hari’s book, Stolen Focus, and outline the 12 things that are stealing our ability to focus in our modern lives. It ISN’T a matter of discipline for which we need to constantly beat ourselves up for. There are huge systemic forces that are targeting our attention spans. The good news is: we can get it back. We can restore our attention spans individually and as a society. This episode has lots of eye opening research and ideas to come back to life and start living it instead of rushing around in our minds and in our tech.

Are you questioning yourself or simply not listening to what your heart, soul and body are telling you? Are each of your buckets so full that one drop would overflow any area of your life? Often we bypass our intuition and listen instead to outside inputs or numb out completely. Heather Chauvin is a podcaster, author and mother who brings personal empowerment and intuitive guidance to woman across the globe. We adore her and her message--one that will inspire you to listen to your own inklings on what your body and heart need to live a simple and joy filled life.  We talk about "balance," finding personal empowerment within motherhood, breaking generational patters and getting emotionally uncomfortable which is the first step to finding our true joy.  We have interviewed Heather before!

Awe is an emotion that we don’t typically think about as an emotion but it turns out that this emotion could be a key to unlock fulfillment and a greater sense of meaning in our lives. Why? Because when we feel that sense of awe, we see that we are part of something bigger and greater than ourselves, and that in turn inspires us to do good, be better, and ultimately feel more alive. Listen in to learn how to cultivate more awe and wonder into your life.

We all want our kids to feel confident. We want them to feel capable. In this episode, we delve into research on what words we use to encourage our kids. The concept of praise is a fascinating one, and some methods yield results that are opposite of what we intend. We discuss the difference between effort based praise and results based praise, and why it’s worth practicing the first. We also explore when it is really powerful to use identity praise when instilling values, and we describe how gratitude, love and authenticity are the keys in the end to helping our kids feel confident as we delight in their existence with them.  LINKS WE MENTIONED: Raising a Moral Child // NY Times Article Praising Children Risking Failure // Janet Lansbury 5 Surprising Ways  to Encourage Your Kids // Janet Lansbury Podcast: How Do I Build My Kids’ Confidence and Self Esteem RELATED EPISODES Growth Mindset is Crucial for Our Kids, but What About Us?  Thank you for the kind reviews!

Have you ever been trying to leave the house when your toddler insists on attempting (unsuccessfully) to do up all of her buttons on her own shirt? Has your child ever asked you to “watch this!” 17 times in 5 minutes? Have you ever wondered how to actually transition into quiet time from naptime to claim a little bit of rejuvenation time in the day? In this episode, we have a friend to friend discussion like we have been having at parks for the last decade. The issues we talk about are ones that Katelin is currently facing and we get often from our listeners. It is a balancing act to try to allow age appropriate independence while still actually getting places. We also have tips on how to balance spending attention without spending all our time watching the new tricks our kids learn (wiggling toes while IN SHOES? Impressive…:). We also share our experience about the life saving quiet time habit, and what worked for us and what didn't. LINK WE MENTIONED: Johnson Files Instagram: Watch This!

“Any finite life — even the best one you could possibly imagine — is therefore a matter of ceaselessly waving goodbye to possibility.” –Oliver Burkman If we live to be 80 years old, that means we will live approximately 4000 weeks. Most people, when asked, guess a much higher number. We are, by nature of our mortal lives here on earth, limited in our experience of time. Realizing this is both humbling and liberating. Once we realize that we cannot do EVERYTHING (because it is impossible) and that the present moment is all we ever actually have (because even that limited 4000 number is not a guarantee), we can get onto truly living. Living now. Living fully. In this episode, we discuss how to try to balance holding a vision of what we want in the future while still  living in the present moment. There is freedom when we realize that we can honor the past and the future, and still recognize where we really are–which is right here, right now.

"Put the big rocks in first"; a brilliant analogy by a brilliant mind BUT what if there are just too many big rocks? How can we acknowledge the myth that we can do it all if only we prioritize the "main" things. With all the work we do here around value alignment and setting priorities our world just plain has too many things that we want to say yes to. Saying no to something we know isn't aligned isn't the hard thing, saying no to something we wish could be a yes IS THE THING. Often times we live on the brink of complete overwhelm because there are so many good things we would love to do. As mothers we also "should" ourselves right into the ground. Layering expectation onto ourselves until we have no room to breathe. How can we dig ourselves out from under this pile of big rocks and "should's"? In this episode we talk about the power of an embodied YES and how we can plan based on seasons of our lives. We also discuss recognizing the fuel you are running on (hint hint fear, shame, need for approval are all unsustainable fuel sources!).  RELATED EPISODES Guidance for the Changing Seasons of Motherhood The Martyr Effect.

It is one thing to identify our emotions and investigate them, but how do we lean into what we are feeling without getting stuck there? Where do we go from there? In this episode, we continue our conversation about Tara Brach’s book, Radical Acceptance, that we started in the episode Escaping the Trance of Unworthiness & Finding Self Acceptance Within. Specifically, we discuss our wanting selves and how when we are stuck in that mindset, we cannot be satisfied with any circumstance. We also discuss how to truly nurture ourselves after we identify and recognize our emotions.

This episode is the third in a three part series that deals with the voices that both hurt us (saboteurs) and help us (sages). After discussing the saboteurs that we entertain in our minds with Robin Davis, we explore the antidote to these negative voices in our heads. This is the sage mind that we all have. When we utilize our sage mind, we use the power to empathize, explore, innovate, navigate, and activate. These attributes combine together to create a powerful force that helps us create the life we want.

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?
