Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, activist, organizer, and artist, talks about how to raise anti-racist children, both in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and long-term, when police brutality and racial injustice have left the news cycle. She provides actionable steps for parents who don’t know where to start, including educating yourself, asking critical questions, and showing up for other communities. Plus, why Tabitha believes there’s no right or wrong time to talk with kids about racism. “If you're wondering when is the right time to talk to your kids about race, I think the first step is to unpack the white privilege that exists in your home and in your family.”    You can follow Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs on Twitter and Instagram @tabithastb.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Jessica Lahey, writer, teacher, and public speaker, opens up about her lifelong relationship with alcohol: growing up with an alcoholic parent, becoming an alcohol peer counselor in college, and realizing that she, too, had become an alcoholic in her 40s. “It's really hard to admit that something you tried to stay away from your whole entire life has snuck up on you through some deep, dark back door that you didn't even know was there.” Jessica gives practical advice for parents and teachers talking to kids about substance abuse, and reveals why she’s decided to change her messaging around alcohol with her second child.   You can follow Jessica Lahey on Twitter @jesslahey and on Instagram @teacherlahey.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Craig Spencer, ER doctor and Ebola survivor, knew COVID was going to be a big deal before most people did. While this gave him and his family plenty of time to stock up on food and supplies, it also meant having to ask tough questions early on about how he’d keep his family safe while battling the virus on the frontline in New York City: “What happens if you get sick, Craig? What do we do? How do we isolate you?

Growing up, the conversation around mental health in Anastasia Vlasova’s home was simple: “Get over it. It's all in your head.

Hear how she built up the courage to ask for help, how she’s doing now, and how she’s using her story to speak out against mental health stigma. “If there's one thing you take away from this episode, it's definitely to reach out for help.”   You can follow Anastasia Vlasova on Instagram @thisismybrave and @thisismybraveteens.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

When Tyler Greene first met his husband, one thing was clear: his husband wanted kids, and Tyler didn't.

Dr. Janice Johnson Dias, sociologist, philanthropist, and mother of activist Marley Dias, talks about how to raise joyful, change-making kids. For her, it’s all about creating the conditions of joyfulness, which begins with listening to your child, asking them questions, and sharing what’s happening in your own life. Plus, why family and culture are so critical to creating joy, and how you can find your own joy as a parent. “Those of us who have found access to joy are those of us who are in the business of change-making, because every day we are doing something to improve the conditions under which we live and improve in the society in which we exist."   You can follow Dr. Janice Johnson Dias on Instagram @drjanicejohnson.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Gaslight Daniel Tiger

Gaslight Daniel Tiger

2021-02-2311:56

Podcast host Jody Avirgan’s daughter has learned a lot from the hit kids’ TV show Daniel Tiger: how to say thank you, how to deal with anger, and even how to use the potty. The show’s songs have been so effective for her that Jody’s started implementing them into his parenting strategy. “I found myself doing what I've come to call the Gaslight Daniel Tiger technique, which is trying to convince my daughter that there are Daniel Tiger songs about very specific things that I want her to do or situations that we've encountered.” The catch is, that means Jody has to come up with his own Daniel Tiger-style songs on the spot. Hear Jody sing about putting away the vacuum cord, taking off your muddy shoes, and more!    You can follow Jody Avirgan on Twitter and Instagram @jodyavirgan.     Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Dr. Gabor Maté, physician and child development expert, takes a deep dive into healthy child development: what conditions are necessary for it, which of those factors are missing from our society, and what parents can do to compensate for it. To unlock the key to healthy child development, he says we need to look towards our ancestors. “Human beings evolved originally in small-band hunter-gatherer groups… children were parented by multiple nurturing adults… and children were held all the time. They had multiple playmates of different ages to play with. And so they grew up confident in themselves and connected to the group.” Plus, why Gabor believes too much influence from peers and the Internet is a developmental disaster for young kids.   You can follow Dr. Gabor Maté on Twitter and Facebook @DrGaborMate.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels shares her number one principle when it comes to parenting: always lead by example. She tries to set a good example for her kids in every aspect of life, not just with fitness and nutrition, but with the hard stuff, too – like owning up to your mistakes or knowing when to say sorry. “I find that if I want my kids to be polite, say please and thank you, look people in the eye when they greet them, I have to do the exact same.” Plus, hear about one of Jillian's "colossal" parenting mistakes, and how she recovered with grace.   You can follow Jillian Michaels on Twitter and Instagram @jillianmichaels.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

After a kidney doctor told her to simply “lose weight” to resolve an ongoing, undiagnosed medical issue, comedian and writer Jen Curran decided it was time to get a second opinion. A kidney biopsy, a bone marrow biopsy, and countless phone calls later, Jen finally had her answer. “My brain immediately started going to the videos I'm going to have to make for [my daughter] to watch when she's 16 and 30 and graduates high school. I'm going to have to sit down and write so many letters for her to open on different birthdays. I'm just imagining that I'm not going to live much longer.” Jen talks about what it was like in her first year after diagnosis, raising a newborn baby and going through treatment at the same time.   You can follow Jen Curran on Twitter @jencurran and Instagram @msjencurran.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Comedian Jen Curran tells the story of how her seemingly normal pregnancy turned into a “really scary situation” overnight. After doctors detected abnormally high levels of protein in her urine and her baby started measuring small, Jen was diagnosed with preeclampsia, a not-too-uncommon condition that’s supposed to “magically” go away after birth. But after her daughter Rose was born, and the high levels of protein were still there, it soon became clear that there was something much more serious going on.    You can follow Jen Curran on Twitter @jencurran and Instagram @msjencurran.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Actor Jay Ellis takes us back to his childhood – moving all around the country, going on adventures with his imaginary friend, and dreaming of being an FBI agent/karate master/football champion one day. He tells the story of one of his first interactions with the police, when, after toilet-papering a classmate’s house with best friend Joe, the pair are detained and berated by cops for more than 30 minutes, “as if we had just robbed a store.” Jay says the experience forever changed his relationship with law enforcement. “I didn't get to have those teenage years in the same way that some of my non-Black peers and friends got to have. I was looked at as a man and thought to be dangerous, even though I was a boy.”    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

He’ll admit, 2020 has been a rough year for everyone, even Santa. “I’ve talked to millions of children behind plexiglass in outdoor arenas because the poor malls can’t open.

Instead, Hillary says, weird parenting is real advice from real parents born out of moments of sheer desperation. “One of my favorites is a game called ‘What's on My Butt?’ You lie down face-down on the couch or on the floor, and then you tell them to get some random object and place it on your butt. And then you have to guess what the thing is and the longer it takes you to guess, the longer you get to lie down.”   You can follow Hillary Frank on Twitter @hillaryfrank and on Instagram @thisishillaryfrank.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

Kati Morton, YouTube star and licensed marriage and family therapist, talks about how our mental health has changed during the pandemic. She offers practical, usable advice on how to release the anxious energy that’s been building up inside of us these past 9 months. Plus, why we need to start having open, honest conversations with our kids about what’s going on with the pandemic. “I'd encourage you to not sugarcoat it. You can say it's really scary. I don't understand a lot of things. I'm not a scientist. This is what they're telling us. This is what we're doing. This is why we're wearing masks. This is why I was sad the other day. We need to put context to it.” You can follow Kati Morton on Twitter and Instagram @katimorton.    Support the show by checking out our sponsors!

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!
