Anxiety, fear, worry. All things that we never want to think about in preschoolers. But all of these emotions will come up from time to time with our little ones.

I am still pondering so many things from this episode with Gallup-Certified Clifton Strengths Coach, Sarah Engel, about our strengths, focusing on what we do well, and how to engage the strengths of our kids.  ALSO - She is offering a DEEP discount (value $400) for coaching that will certainly change your relationship with your child. Listen, learn, and take her up on her offer! :)I loved this equation from the episode...Talent x Investment = Strength. YES!! I love how she shares how these strengths connect to our talents and ways we can foster and enhance those natural ways of being in ourselves and our kids.As always, be sure to FOLLOW us on Facebook @MWMwithKids or check out our website for parenting books, inspirational tees and ongoing blog posts - www.makewordsmatterforgood.com.Did you love this episode?

This week's episode was inspired by a quote from the Speaking Life devotional by Roxanne Parks where she states, " Your life will always move in the direction of your strongest thoughts." She then challenges the reader to consider, "What input establishes your thoughts each day?" I was so moved by these two things that I wanted to share some additional ways that we can realize how much our environment impacts our words that then drive our behaviors and emotions. This episode, I challenge all of us to examine our deepest, recurrent thoughts, and then find ways to "vacation" in the daily grind of life.  I hope you are inspired to move and grow alongside me with this one! Follow on Facebook MWMwithKids or our website www.makewordsmatterforgood.com.

Sorry for the cursing in the title...but really!?! Can this week be any crazier?? This brief episode shares a couple of quick reminders about all that this week has for us. Stress from the election, news coverage, time change, fatigue from the pandemic - and WHAT TO DO about it! We are all feeling the crunch. Our bodies are feeling the chaos. Take a moment to listen, share with others, and reflect on ways you can #makewordsmatter this week.Stay well, all!
In this thought-provoking conversation with leadership expert, Dr. Mia Johnson, she shares her expertise in leadership as it relates to us as parents and "regular" people. I shared my thought that sometimes we "regular" people (i.e., those of us without a PhD in leadership, or in a specific leadership role) still need to infuse leadership principles in our everyday conversations and behaviors. Listen in as we explore tangible ways that leadership can impact our kids and others around us in the most powerful ways!I invite you to follow us on Facebook as well @MWMwithKids.Have a question - ASK US!

This episode is a BONUS cross-posting with my friends at Core Essential Values (https://coreessentials.org/values) - where we talk about The Big Three - Treat others right, Make smart decisions, and Maximize potential. I LOVE talking about these three concepts because it really is the core of everything we do as parents (and teachers). It's also why I love Core Essential Values for schools, preschools, and daycares. It just makes so much sense to parents, teachers, and staff. I encourage you to listen is as we explore these topics, but also to explore their website. Trust me... it is both affordable and impactful!I'd also love for you to check out my website and blog for updates about the things I have been up to: makewordsmatterforgood.com Thanks for listening!
During this "Mental Health Moment" I explore the hard topic of suicide. It is never an easy thing to discuss, but the more we shed light on this stigmatizing topic, the less shame folks will feel about it. As we face an unprecedented time of uncertainty, we really need to all be ready to respond to hopelessness in our friends and family. I share tips and resources for talking about suicide with your friends and kids. Listen in!The keynote speaker I talked about is named Kevin Hines. You can learn about him on his website www.kevinhinesstory.com.I also spoke about him with my colleague Dr. Deborah Miller on our YouTube Channel - The Beth and Deb Show - if you are interested, you can check that out, too! Always looking for folks to share and subscribe there! :)Big Shout-out to YMCA of Muncie for hosting this episode!

This episode is a must-listen for all of us who have said things we didn't mean - or maybe still struggle in some moments of frustration to say what we mean. Too often, we say things in frustration about our kids - they are "being a jerk" or "being a brat" or "being a baby." None of these things are helpful to our kids or our relationship with them. Listen in for why this should be something we eliminate from our vocabularies forever. :)As always, be sure to FOLLOW us on Facebook @MWMwithKids or check out our website for parenting books, inspirational tees and ongoing blog posts - www.makewordsmatterforgood.com.
