When I was 16, I taught myself to speak Hindi because my desire to learn the language had been awakened. Kids love to learn, when they're interested! Tune in to hear me talk about how to fan the flames of children's passions with Multiple Intelligences, even if they're weary of school and think learning is "dumb." https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-dont-like-school/
Susan talks with Christina McGhee, author of Parenting Apart, about how to address challenges associated with helping a child adjust after divorce. The discussion includes managing transitions, offloading a child's feelings in healthy ways, and ensuring kids don't get overloaded with parents' own difficult emotions. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-mcghee/
Susan chats with Janell Burley Hofmann, author of iRules: What Every Tech-Healthy Family Needs to Know About Selfies, Sexting, Gaming and Growing Up. Susan and Janell talk about how to incorporate technology into family life in ways that preserve connection and encourage engagement with the real, 3D world. Loaded with tips for using technology without being ruled by it. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-burley-hofmann/
Susan talks with Wendy Behary, author of Disarming the Narcissist: Surviving and Thriving with the Self-Absorbed. Susan and Wendy discuss challenges associated with co-parenting with someone who has narcissistic tendencies, including an absence of empathy, a sense of entitlement, and a focus on attention and approval--at the cost of addressing children's needs. Susan and Wendy co-host a monthly support group on Co-Parenting With a Narcissist. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-behary/
Susan talks with Maggie Dent, beloved parent educator from Australia, about raising children who are especially strong-willed and energetic.

Susan talks with Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child and Mindful Games shares ways that families can integrate mindfulness into their everyday lives, developing the resilience, presence, and compassion that will help them navigate life's ups and downs. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-kaiser-greenland/
Children are wired to resist coercion, especially when most of our interactions are about making a request or demand. In this episode, I answer a parent's question about how to handle her 12 year old son who accuses her of being grumpy whenever she asks him to turn off the TV to do his chores or homework. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-stiffelman-hooked-on-tv/
Susan talks with Dr. William Stixrud, author of The Self-Driven Child, about the rise of anxiety and depression in kids who report feeling increasingly controlled and micromanaged by well-meaning parents. Kids need a sense of agency to grow into resilient adults. An important, thought-provoking conversation. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-stixrud/
