Expectations Are Your Enemy

Who Changed Math?!

Who Changed Math?!


As if we don’t have enough challenges as parents, now we have to re-learn math so we can help our kids do their homework?! Educational Consultant and Math Geek Chase Orton joins Joe and Anea to explain what Common Core is all about, its value to our children and tips parents can start using immediately to inspire a love of math in our kids.
A Buzzfeed survey showed that 73% of parents judge other parents. Why do so many of us judge and how might this be detrimental to us all, including our kids? Joe and Anea challenge us to consider how we might all benefit from dropping the judgment because other parents in our communities are "co-parents," whether we like it or not.
Our relationship with our partner plays an important role in parenting. It is, after all, not only the foundation for our family, but the model for relationships with others that our kids see every day of their young lives. How do we know if we are modeling a healthy relationship? What can we do if we're not? Tune in to find out. 
 Sooner or later, our children start making it very clear that they are their own person and when that includes holding values that are different from our own it can feel like a gut punch. What can we do to navigate the big emotions and fears that come up for us when this happens? Whether you have a young child or you're in the throws of adolescence you don't want to miss this one.
Relationships with our children are every bit as important and demand all the same efforts as a relationship with the adults in our life. Remember, “what you water grows.” Quality time invested in becoming a calm, grounded parent with whom your kids want to communicate will create strong relationships and keep your kids talking to you from the early years throughout their adolescent years. Of course doing all this in a balanced, equitable way with your co-parent will yield the best results for all.

Great content! One area of improvement: I'm not super excited about how much Joe interrupts the women experts. I've noticed a number of times the women even continue talking to finish a sentence, and the cue seems to go unnoticed by Joe while he just speaks louder until they stop talking.
