The Child Whisperer Show With Carol Tuttle Online Radio | BlogTalkRadio
Hi, we're Liz Gumbinner and Kristen Chase of CoolMomPicks.com. We've got a microphone and more than the two minutes the Today Show gives us, and we're not afraid to use them.

I even schedule my shoot days around the new episodes." - What Jennifer Garner might say if she ever listened to it.
ParentCast: New Parents | New Babies | New Adventures | A New Kind Of Crazy
Just have a kid and you're overwhelmed? Mary and Blake are too. They're parents who have no idea what they're doing, and they're asking the experts on all things baby. It's an entirely "judgement free zone," where we can laugh at each other's stories of success and failure. Mary and Blake discuss their whines of the week, wins of the week, and also give their Parent Pick of the week. But this show is nothing without it's listeners - so there is as much listener feedback as humanly possible. It's free, it's funny, and it's a lot better than therapy!

The official podcast of Radical Parents. We discuss, faith, culture, and what it means to be a parent of teenagers in today's society. Our goal is to equip parents to better communicate and disciple their kids.
Raising and supporting a transgender child (including teens and young adults) is still seen as a radical move by many. We are here to offer support and help educate people on matters ranging from understanding the difference between being gender non-conforming and trans, talking to doctors, when to allow a child to transition, name changes, clothing, puberty, hormones, sports, schools, family stress, religion, laws, frustrations and triumphs. As society starts to understand the needs of the transgender community, more people are seeking information on how to be supportive. We will also explore ways schools, medical offices, and businesses in general can support the trans population, as an extension of the training services offered through Gender Inc.

A few months ago, when Terri was engaged in her annual Lenten coffee fast, we chatted about things we could give up for a while if we knew we'd get 'em back. Today, we go hard-core and talk about things we'd have the hardest time giving up forever, and while in truth the answer would certainly be our families and maybe also wifi, that's not where our heads went in the moment. Listen to find out what immediately came to mind, and share your own never-give-it-up stuff in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
#15-Give them Keys That Open Doors It may seem like a small thing in the vast array of things that we teach our children but something as simple as manners can help them be chosen by a future employee.Â Simple etiquette will make a teen or young adult stand out from among their peers, even when interviewing for a job. There are several small things that we can do to train our children in this area.Â It can even start with toddlers but thankfully this is an area that is never too late to focus on.Â Simply teaching your child to say please and thank you can do wonders.Â Basic table manners is also an invaluable tool that will help your child in many areas from dating to dining out with clients. A few other simple but valuable etiquette tools to teach your child are looking people in the eyes and having a proper response to people.Â Teaching your child to look someone in the eye when they are talking communicates not only confidence but respect.Â Another thing that communicates respec ...
Through snow and carpooling and book finishing and bad parenting karma we struggled to bring you this group chat. Here's our road-map of what we discussed, for your fast-forwarding convenience: 0:44 Intros and What's New With You — Nicole is chewing her toast during our podcast, not chewing her toes. An important distinction. 2:19 Keeping Caregivers Informed — When we heard about Little Peanut on the Go, an app that facilitates sharing of information with babysitters and other caregivers (including grandparents, if they're app-friendly), it got us thinking about how we communicated with our kids' sitters back in the dark ages when you had to rely on whiteboards and didn't have to worry about wifi. 14:44 Keeping Schools Informed — Speaking of the free flow of information, how come schools still send you home 100 pieces of paper at the start of the school year? Shouldn't we be able to fill out forms online? And get texts and e-mails instead of handouts? And act like our kids are goin ...
We've been inundated with listener questions so we decided to dedicate an entire show to answering them. Below are the topics as well as the time stamps for each question: 3:15 Chakras and toddlerhood 14:42 Step-parents and an 8 year old with a huge personality 23:52 Preschool drop-off 30:22 Spanking 36:28 2 year old son with tantrums 43:25 Top 10 books We also mentioned a podcast that would be helpful for step parents which can be found @ http://www.wbur.org/2016/03/25/dear-sugar-episode-forty-eight

#14- Teaching How to Give Another lesson that we train our children in that can affect adulthood is teaching our children how to give.Â Teaching them from an early age to give is something that helps to take the focus off themselves and teaches them to be others focused.Â There a several areas that our children can learn to give first is financially.Â We dealt with this in our series on raising a financially mature adult, which we gave a link to in yesterdayâ€™s post.Â Another area of giving is giving of yourself, your time and serving others.Â Check out our series on teaching your child to serve byÂ clicking here.

The work being done on one of Catherine's bathrooms has made a cameo appearance on a few of our podcasts, between the noise and the reflecting on Bluetooth ceiling fans. Will the rest of us be providing similar accompaniment? Listen to our home project plans and add your own in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
No really. It is not a clever title. We recorded TWICE this week and both files were corrupt. So we are very sorry, but on the bright side this week's extra short episode still has a "Hey JackBoy" so you know... there's that.
#13- Teaching Money Management Money management is similar to time management as a key to a balanced adult life.Â It can also have far reaching impact if your child doesnâ€™t know how to be responsible with money.Â It is one of the top three reasons for marital conflict.Â This is why we need to take training our children in this area very seriously as well as model money management in our own lives.Â Check out our previous series on money management byÂ clicking here.

Middle names: we've all got 'em, but unless you're filling out a form or your mother is mad at you, they don't get used that much. We thought we'd have a chat about what our particular middle names are and whether they mean anything more than something our parents came up with just to, well, fill out a form. If your middle name has a story, share it in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
#12 Teaching Time Management Over the next few days we will be discussing areas that we need to train our children in that will have an impact on their adult life.Â The first is teaching time management.Â Teaching our children how to order and manage their time is really key to ordering their life.Â It is one of the keys to being a successful adult, being marriageable and employable, as well as being able to find the time to serve God where He has called you.Â We spent an entire week discussing this topic.

On this week's entertainment-themed podcast, Catherine and Terri wonder why people can't just dance on a dancing show, who should be cast in Catherine's latest book-club book, when Leslie Knope's council campaign will ever be over, and why we can't all age like Rob Lowe. Want to fast-forward through some of that? Here's your guide: 0:26: Dancing With the Stars — It's Iconic Dances Night, and it's pretty clear that they're using "iconic dances" with the same air quotes as "stars." 14:52 Catherine's Book Club Report — Catherine read The Art of Crash Landing by Melissa DeCarlo and gives us a quick review. 19:56 Parks and Recreation Marathon — This week, we discussed the Season 4 episodes "Lucky," "Live Ammo," "The Debate," and "Bus Trip." Up next week: "Win, Lose, or Draw," "Ms. Knope Goes to Washington," "Soda Tax," and "How a Bill Becomes a Law." Watch along with us! 27:37 The West Wing — We're watching along with The West Wing Weekly podcast and discuss "The Crackpots and These Wom ...
Sure, it's fashionable to diss fast food as fatty and non-nutritious, but that doesn't stop us from wanting a really gross cheeseburger from time to time. Where do you go when you've just gotta have some fries, some tacos, some 1,000-calorie salad? Find out our fast-food faves and share your own in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
Cathy and Todd discuss an article from the Chicago Tribune about getting rid of emotional and mental clutter. They process the devastation around Prince’s death, but Todd thinks he has alexithemia because he’s not as sad as everyone else. They also talk travel sports, small breakdowns, and Caddyshack.
Bringing Up Betty | True Tales of Special Needs Parenting
Today we're doing something a little different. Betty's been sick and I didn't want to wait yet another week to put a new episode out, so instead I'm sharing a few uncut chunks of my chat with Mary Evelyn Smith that didn't make it into her story in episode #17. I had such a great time chatting with Mary Evelyn and found her so relatable. I think you'll really enjoy this unedited discussion on a few different topics. To sum it up, we chat about: The new (intense) forms of mom guilt that show up when your child's early childhood involves a lot of therapy (or maybe Mary Evelyn and I are just both really good at beating ourselves up?) How to ruin any fun/relaxing/enjoyable activity The terrible selection of children's books about disability and differences How to approach and teach your child about disabilities The connections that our kids (and their siblings) are not making about the world The responsibility we have as parents in shaping how our kids will be viewed and treated If you ...
Lynette opens this week's Tuesday episode of For Crying Out Loud recapping her weekend at home with the kids while Adam was away. This leads to a discussion on Lynette and Stef trying to get their kids to hold back information from their fathers, and how bad they are at it. Then, Stefanie finds a dog she found wandering around on the street, finds it's owner and returns the dog home, leading Lynette and Stef to talk about which breed of dog is the nicest and will be the best fit for Stefanie's family.

We know that for many people the road through pregnancy isn't an easy one. Being pregnant doesn't always guarantee a happy ending with a baby in your arms. So amidst the grief and loss how do you acknowledge the mothers who do not have all their children with them? The Sunday before Mother's Day has been designated 'International Bereaved Mother's Day'. Obviously it's not the same as Mother's Day but it 's an important milestone that might give you the opportunity to acknowledge the pain you hold for a lost child or incomplete pregnancy.. or the chance to connect with friends who have not got the family they wished for on earth.

#11- The Importance of Unplugging One of the things that technology is supposed to do is make it easier for everyone to communicate.Â In fact, through things like facebook and twitter we can be updated on even the small details of what is going on in each otherâ€™s lives. Â Through texting we can discreetly communicate small snippets of information.Â Even email has replaced most interoffice communication and the need for buying stamps.Â But with the need for instant communication we may be loosing the personal touch which comes with face to face communication.Â There was a time when you wouldnâ€™t think of telling something important over the phone because it was too impersonal.Â Now we blast our important announcements over the social networks and twitter. We need to be careful through all of this that our children donâ€™t miss out on being taught how to communicate properly.Â If the only way they are learning to communicate is through text and tweets, they are seriously missing o ...
Hey, look alive! This podcast is too short to be boring. But we do talk about boring things in it — specifically, the things that make us bored. Like uni-tasking. Listening to people talk. Watching other people's video games. Sitting still. If you're still awake when we're done, tell us what bores you in the comments here or on our Facebook page..
#10- You Can’t Do Everything One valuable lesson to teach our children is the lesson of moderation. Â This is one of the areas in the power of no. Â There will always be time where we have to say no to things for the sake of family, rest or even our own sanity. Â Part of teaching your children how to manage a schedule is by giving them the freedom to turn down the superfluous things, and sometimes even the things that may seem important, for the things that are the MOST important. Putting family first is a lesson that we have to role model. Â They must see us turn down things in our lives for the most important things such as a date night with our spouse or a family night. Â If this is not something that you do naturally, or you are a people pleaser and have a hard time saying no, it is worth the effort to make a change to role model this for your children. Â The other thing that you can do is by helping older teens balance their schedule by setting up family times that “cannot be ...
In the age of information why is advocacy in the spotlight? More and more we are hearing that doula clients, just might not want ANY information! That's not what we are hearing from doctors all over, what we are hearing is more and more patients are coming to them after spending hours on Google. So are these same people who want information from their laptops somehow not wanting to know anything during a hugely important day of their life?
Since carpooling schedules so often interfere with our efforts to schedule podcast recording times, we thought we'd take some time today to talk about carpooling instead of doing it, and throw in some thoughts about other things we remember from our long-ago childhoods. Here's a road-map of our conversation: 01:12 Intros and What's New With You — Does the five-second rule apply to licking up delicious things you've accidentally dripped onto your electronic devices? Discuss. 02:57 Carpooling (or Unpaid Uber) — While Catherine does more carpooling than the rest of us combined, we all have traumatic stories to share about driving carpool now or riding in carpool then. 14:53 Those Were the Days — Thoughts of being squished in the backseat with kids you don't like got us remembering more pleasant things about childhood, like eating disgusting food and spending money on silly things and reading all day and generally having no responsibilities at all. 24:46 Interview of the Week — An expe ...
In the second part of our interview with Dr. Therese Rowley, Therese says Cathy has "clairsentience", she challenges me to remove love some of the walls i have built up, and gives parents of hyper-active children some holistic things you can do to help them.

Lynette and Stefanie open the show talking to producer Brandon about his recent "Know Your Lackeys" segment on Adam's show, which leads to a conversation on how much better the quality of life has become for today's younger generation. Then the ladies talk about the different stages of parenting as your kids get older. After that, Lynette talks about Adams race in Long Beach past weekend. Before they wrap, the ladies take a few private message Facebook questions.

The Potential Cracks in The Walls- Raising Responsible Children By Giving Them Responsibility. We cannot hope to raise a child who is responsible unless we are giving them areas of responsibility.Â Two areas that are easy to teach a child to be responsible is money and chores. This again is something that can start when they are younger. With chores as we talked yesterday can even start teaching your toddler to clean up after themselves or put their dirty clothes in the hamper and move up from there.Â Chores not only teach a child how to do basic household tasks but they also teach time management as they learn how to work chores into their schedule. In do so it ultimately teaches responsibility, â€œI canâ€™t take the time to play the video game right now because I have to finish this chore.â€� Keep in mind that we are raising children and not mini adults so this will take consistent training, coaching and encouragement. The second area where we can give a child responsibility is w ...

This week in babytalk I'm asking you to remember everything you learned about cells in your biology class. Do you remember mitochondria? Your teacher might have described them as the 'cell batteries' the little organs that keep the cells functioning. When most of us think of human cells and the fertilization process, we naturally think of all the DNA in the nucleus.. the stuff that is important and passed on from both parents to the developing baby but scientists are working on a theory that the presence of mitochondrial DNA in an egg is the key to it's viability and possibly the loss or lack of mitochondrial DNA in an egg cell means it's too old to be fertilized. So how important is mitochondrial DNA and if it is so vital to making babies, what do we need to do to make that knowledge work for us.

The Potential Cracks In The Walls- Get Out of The Way So They Can Learn It is so tempting at times to step in and do things for our children. From cleaning their room when they are little to doing their science projects for them as they get older.Â We have to let our children learn to do things for themselves.Â This means that we have to take the time to, sometimes painstakingly, train them how to do things and then back off and allow them to do it.Â This may mean that they (gulp) fail.Â Â Thatâ€™s ok.Â We then applaud the effort and continue the training process. This process begins when a child is very small.Â We can begin with teaching our children how to clean up after themselves.Â It then moves to a child learning how to clean up their room.Â They will then graduate to learning how to do full blown house hold chores.Â If we are consistently doing these things for them they will never learn how to effectively do them for themselves. It is the same with school work.Â We can help ...
When teens and young adults have setbacks in getting a job or keeping a job or tolerating a job, parents need some sage advice to help them stay the course and understand that this is what it's like to be a grown-up, kid. But maybe you need something a little more meaningful than that? We share some words of work wisdom, and welcome yours in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
The Potential Cracks In The Walls- Donâ€™t Become The Consequence It is very easy to get frustrated in parenting, maybe we are stressed, over tired or have just given the same consequence for the same behavior seemingly 1000 times.Â When we allow ourselves to be frustrated we can also allow ourselves to become the consequence. This can also be the case when we havenâ€™t taken the time to come up with a parenting plan and just react to a situation.Â Check out the week long series that we did on this topic called â€œSeparate the Relationship from the Disciplineâ€� byÂ clicking here.Listen to todayâ€™s podcast as well for more insight on this topic.

We've got four shows to discuss on this week's entertainment episode of Parenting Roundabout. In case you want to fast-forward over stuff you don't watch or care about, here's a road map through the episode: 0:27 Dancing With the Stars — It was Switch-Up Night on DWTS, and also "Can't anybody do their dang job?" night, as pros failed to choreograph their assigned dances, judges forgot how to hold up the correct paddle, and producers forgot that if you don't even pretend that the scores aren't predetermined, people are going to catch on. 11:54 The People v. O. J. Simpson — So we're a little late in following up on Catherine's initial review of this with a final opinion on the whole thing, but we no longer live in a pop-culture environment where time has meaning, right? 16:19 Parks and Recreation marathon — Our viewing continues with the Season 4 episodes "Operation Ann," "Dave Returns," "Sweet Sixteen," and "Campaign Shake-Up," continuing the generally campaign-centric second half o ...
We're all lucky enough to work at home, as freelancers or remote-based workers, and that's all kinds awesome when it comes to being able to wear comfortable clothes and tend to your kids and record podcasts. But do we ever miss anything about an actual defined workplace that we could go to and come home from? Listen to our list of things we still long for a little, and share what you miss or would miss in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
Cathy and Todd explain how negative experiences stick immediately, but it takes 15 seconds of savoring a positive experience for it to imprint on the brain. They also discuss why judging or fighting someone doesn’t create change. Instead, we can recognize negative behavior and then role model a more rational and kind way to interact. A listener asks a question about work/life balance and they provide insight and resources.
Lynette opens this week's episode recapping her struggle in dealing with Pneumonia last week. Then Lynette and Stefanie give an update on how the kids have been doing in school recently. After that, Lynette thinks she might have to take Natalia to therapy. Before they wrap, the ladies talk about how similar they were to their kids after getting their school report cards.

#6 The Potential Cracks In The Walls – Don’t Get Derailed By Childish Outbursts There are a few things that can make a parent feel guilty and even give in at times to their childâ€™s behavior/desires.Â The first is temper tantrums.Â When a toddler is told no or doesnâ€™t get their way and throws a fit, it is very tempting as a parent to give in and allow the child to have what they want.Â It seems so much easier short term to give in and attempt to preserve peace and not have to deal with the temper on top of saying no.Â However, this is detrimental in the long run and you are actually training your toddler to throw a tantrum to get their way. A second thing that can derail a parent isÂ the “that’s not fair” comment.Â Again if you are not careful you can allow that comment to cause you to question your decision.Â If you are consistent in your parenting and are giving out consequences consistently for behaviors then you have no reason to question.Â The old parenting adage must apply ...
