Description

We get better instructions for putting together furniture than we do for raising actual human beings. And that doesn’t even account for how to do it amid a global pandemic and civil/political unrest. That’s why Season 2 of Good Kids features a compelling mix of perspectives on child-rearing — from parents and experts, authors and actors, to "good" kids themselves — imparting wisdom for a brief, but potent, 10(ish) minutes each week. Good Kids isn’t just another parenting podcast. It’s an all-hands-on-deck discussion about what we can do to help children create a better world. Collectively.

This Thanksgiving we’re throwing it back to the very first episode of Good Kids featuring writer/producer/podcast host Jaime Primak Sullivan. She reflects on an impulse decision she made years ago to trash her kids’ ice cream at a Dairy Queen in an effort to teach them gratitude and the importance of human connection. “The human connection for me is making a conscious decision to look at people and connect with them.”  You can follow Jaime Primak Sullivan on Instagram @jaimepsullivan, on Twitter @JaimePrimak, and on Facebook @jaimeprimaksullivan.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Kulap Vilaysack and SuChin Pak, hosts of the new Lemonada Media podcast Add to Cart, talk about what they’re adding to their metaphorical shopping cart when it comes to raising good humans: hope, surrender, and forgiveness. Kulap reflects on her complicated relationship with her mother, and opens up about her struggle to become a mother herself. SuChin talks candidly about her experience with self-inflicted mom-guilt. “I spent most of my time as a parent feeling really guilty and ashamed because I didn't really like being a parent. And so I had to come to the hard realization – and the freeing realization – that I could love my kids but not really love being a parent.”    You can follow Kulap Vilaysack on Twitter @Kulap and on Instagram @iamkulap.    Keep up with SuChin Pak on Twitter @suchinpak and on Instagram @suchinpak.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

In honor of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris becoming the highest-ranking woman ever elected in U.S. history, we talk with music industry matriarch Sophia Chang about how we can help women of color ascend in every industry: from music, film, and television to technology, medicine, law, and of course, politics. Sophia talks about the importance of mentorship, and why she created Unlock Her Potential, a free mentorship program for women of color in the United States. “You should have women of color in the room, not because it's the right thing to do, which it is. It is also the smart, fiscally responsible thing to do.” Plus, Sophia walks you through her top confidence-building exercise that’ll have you convinced that you, too, are the baddest b*tch in the room.

Dr. Shefali Tsabary, clinical psychologist, author, and world-renowned parenting expert outlines the many ways anxiety manifests itself in our lives – from perfectionism to overeating and even watching too many shows on Netflix. With one in five children being diagnosed with anxiety even before the pandemic, Dr. Shefali says it’s about time we revolutionize the way anxiety is viewed: as a superpower rather than a setback. That’s why she wrote her new book Superpowered: Transform Anxiety Into Courage, Confidence, and Resilience. Plus, Dr. Shefali’s top tips for managing your children’s anxiety – and your own – during the pandemic: “Stop having high expectations of your kids. You're not going to do it perfectly. You're going to put on weight. You're going to eat terribly. You're going to forget to exercise. This is normal. And this is not the time to put extra pressure on yourself.”   You can follow Dr. Shefali on Instagram @doctorshefali, on Twitter @DrShefali, or on Facebook at @DrShefaliTsabary.     Interested in learning more about Dr. Shefali?

My First Panic Attack

My First Panic Attack

2020-10-2711:44

Lily Cornell Silver, mental health activist and daughter of the late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, recounts her less-than-conventional childhood — on the road, missing school to go to rock concerts, and learning to play poker on the Alice in Chains tour bus. Lily talks candidly about her early introduction to the world of mental health, after a harrowing panic attack at just 12-years-old. “I felt the heat flood my body. I was sweating. I was shaking. And my 12-year-old brain immediately went to, like, I have a brain tumor or like there's something wrong with my heart or like I'm literally about to die.” Plus, how the pandemic inspired her to start Mind Wide Open, her IGTV interview series about mental health.     You can follow Lily Cornell Silver on Instagram @lilycornellsilver.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Nic Stone, best-selling young adult author, says she never saw characters like herself in books growing up. That’s why she’s on a mission to make sure every child feels represented by the books on their bookshelf. Her latest book, Dear Justyce, tells the story of a Black boy who ends up in juvenile detention after confessing to the murder of a police officer. Plus, Nic shares her #1 piece of parenting advice. “I think that the best thing that we can do for our children is to create in them a desire for awareness,” she says. “And I'm not just talking about awareness of the world and how the world functions, but also an awareness of themselves, an awareness of their emotions, an awareness of other human beings and their emotions.”  You can follow Nic Stone on Instagram @nicstone or on Twitter @getnicced.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Climate activist and founder of Plus 1 Vote, Saad Amer, talks about his leap from nature lover to climate activist at just 14 years old. Frustrated with the lack of meaningful climate action from lawmakers, Saad came up with a simple solution: “Let’s get rid of them.” That’s why Saad is encouraging you (yes, you) and all your friends -- "your smart friends, your woke friends, your highly educated friends," as he says -- to get out there this November and VOTE! “A democracy will only represent the people who are voting,” he says. “And so if young people aren't voting for a series of reasons, then of course the democracy is not going to represent the needs and the values of young people.”   You can follow Saad Amer on Instagram and Twitter @itsSaadAmer and on Facebook @saadamer.  Follow Plus 1 Vote on Instagram and Facebook @Plus1Vote or on Twitter @Plus1_Vote.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Rachel Bloom, the Golden Globe-winning co-creator/star of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, reveals what it was like giving birth during the pandemic at the same moment her friend and music collaborator, Adam Schlesinger, was losing his battle with the virus. With COVID-19 as a humbling denominator, she confronts mortality with the same out-of-body clarity in a way that she hasn’t since that one time she took way too many mushrooms in Amsterdam. “There's nothing more on the nose about as one person enters, one person is leaving,” she reflects. “Ten minutes after he died, I was breastfeeding because she needed food. So there's something very egoless about, like, I can only grieve for so long.” You can follow Rachel Bloom on Instagram and Twitter @Racheldoesstuff.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

If you’ve ever sat through professional development as an educator, you’ve heard of Angela Duckworth. Both her research and personal experience in the classroom suggests that IQ isn’t always helpful in determining successful outcomes for students. Rather, a more important predictor of success is “grit,” a growth mindset, and feeling like you have a purpose that’s bigger than yourself. So how do we unlock grit and resilience in our kids, especially when the world is so uncertain and unpredictable? And what kind of impact will this period in our history have on our kids in the longterm? “Both the very recent events of the last few weeks and the still recent events of the last few months in the pandemic are all exactly what I study...this is historic.”  Want to hear more from Angela Duckworth?  You can follow her on Twitter at @angeladuckw and @TheCharacterLab Read Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance to learn why some people succeed and others fail. Sharing new insights from her landmark research, Angela explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Visit angeladuckworth.com/grit-book to learn more.

Also, baking! She talks about baking. “It's uncomfortable and it's awkward, but it's so important...and I think it's finding that moment where it's appropriate to have that conversation.

Stay-at-home dad Peter Rider shares his experience--the good, the bad, and the funny--with being detailed and clear when talking to his kids about all sorts of things. From having two gay dads to contracting head lice and more, he believes being explicit is the way to go. “One thing that I've been thinking about a lot over the past year, especially as my kids get a little older, is the balance between modeling behaviors vs. being really explicit and explaining things. I think I started out thinking that when it comes to values, kids really learn by seeing. But I think increasingly I've thought...about how you actually have to be really explicit about some things.” Be sure to check out our fantastic sponsors: BetterHelp offers affordable, private online counseling anytime, anywhere.

Brit Prawat, host of Crime Junkie podcast, talks candidly about being adopted and how the emotions and even loss around that never really goes away.

Rebecca Carroll is a cultural critic, host of WYNC’s Come Through podcast, and critic at large for the Los Angeles Times. TL;DR: She is qualified to talk about television. But during quarantine, she’s found herself reexamining the role TV plays in her own family and how it’s actually a pretty good thing when times are particularly tough. “I just don't think that this whole screen time thing is as negative as a lot of folks do. So long as I can have a conversation with my kid about what he is consuming, so long as I can have a conversation with him about what he is thinking, I am pretty lax about screentime.” Follow Rebecca Carroll on Instagram at @rebeljunemarie and on Twitter at @rebel19 Be sure to check out this episode’s fantastic sponsors: Looking for ways to take care of your emotional health, cope with the challenges we all are facing, and more?

Practical tips abound in this phenomenal episode for kids and parents alike! Bestselling author, podcaster, and mental health advocate Niall Breslin strips away the woo-woo-ness of mindfulness and teaches us how we can actually use it to improve quality of life for ourselves and our kids, especially in today’s world. Niall draws from practical, scientific, and spiritual methods to explain that we can’t keep going at the pace we’ve been going because we've got “an old brain for a new world and our brain is consistently overwhelmed.” What’s the greatest defense mechanism for that? Mindfulness.  You can follow Niall Breslin on Instagram at @bressie and on Twitter at @nbrez.

JoAnna García Swisher (Sweet Magnolias) is a mother, actor, and founder of The Happy Place, a website dedicated to design and self-care. Her philosophy of “creating and celebrating the spaces, places, and moments that bring the greatest joy” has actually helped her navigate the difficult moments of her life, most recently the loss of her father, with whom she was incredibly close. This profound loss was a primer for the world we’re living in today, as we all learn to cope with feeling utterly out of control, providing as stable an environment as we can for our children, and trying our best to have faith that there will be a new story to write on the other side.  You can follow JoAnna García Swisher on Instagram and Twitter and at The Happy Place.

Dani Shapiro puts deep-rooted family secrets under a microscope in both her New York Times bestselling memoir, Inheritance, and her podcast, Family Secrets. In today’s episode, Dani provides some insight for parents into striking a delicate balance between “the sky is falling” and “we got this.” She also discusses how toxic it can be for families to keep secrets (even those with the best of intentions) and how it’s ultimately better to address tough or painful topics head-on.  You can find more from Dani Shapiro on Instagram, Twitter, and danishapiro.com.

Bess Kalb is an Emmy-nominated writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live, a regular contributor to The New Yorker, and author of Nobody Will Tell You This But Me, a laugh/cry book based on her close relationship with her late grandmother. Bess talks about recently becoming a mother herself, raising an infant in isolation, and the wisdom she continues to derive from her grandma: “There's a refrain that my grandma said frequently throughout her life. It's, ‘Bessie, when the earth is cracking behind your feet and you feel like the whole world is going to swallow you up, you put one foot in front of the other and keep going forward.’” You can follow Bess on Twitter and Instagram.
