Minimalism isn't just eliminating toys - that isn't the point. It's filtering out the "noise" in our lives to focus on what is truly important. And "noise" can be things, but can also be over-scheduled, maxed out living. We share five tips for minimalist parenting - five things we ask you to do less of...in order to invite MORE into your life.…
 
And before you think this is an episode for the bedroom, it's way beyond that. Even a quick, intentional connection can have a lasting effect, and the more we can get comfortable with short bursts of joy in life, the more recharged we are for the long haul! In this episode, we talk about social "quickies" vs. long, drawn-out playdates that are more…
 
In our world of unschooling, we believe in delight-led learning, and the functional education model of learning as we live life together. So what if our kids want to just watch TV and eat chips all day? Do we allow it? Do we force our kids to step it up, or just cross our fingers and hope they muster up some work ethic on their own?…
 
Remember that Kenny Rogers song, The Gambler? In your family...do you know how to hold 'em, know how to fold 'em, know when to walk away, and when to run? Are you simply a cheerleader for your child, or are you coaching them through life? Coaching them means not telling them the answers but bringing to their awareness the tools they can use to help…
 
Do you remember the scene in the Gladiator, where, completely exasperated, Russel Crowe asks, "are you not entertained??" Have you had those moments where your kids come up to you and say the dreaded words, "I'm bored", and you're looking at all of the things to entertain them all around? We've been there, and have gone from the struggle of constan…
 
When we've talked about our goals as unschooling parents, we ultimately boil it down to "raising good humans". Not that humans are good or bad, but raising up humans who can see the good in the world - those things that light us up, lift us up, and support one another. We break down four powerful tenets to being a successful leader, and ultimately,…
 
Last week we talked about toxic behavior we all navigate in our lives. This week we take it a step further - if everything around you stinks...maybe it's time to check under your own nose first! There are often three ways we can approach life - fight, flight, or freeze. Yet I believe there are two others variables that can occur more frequently - o…
 
Do you have any "prickly" people in your life? Maybe it's not about a horribly toxic person as much as it is that there are people in your life that can exhibit toxic behavior, sit in negativity and cynicism, or just have a bad attitude about life. Our most downloaded episode continues to be on navigating toxic behavior, so we're bringing up the to…

My sister-in-law used to say, "take a break from the ones you love, so you can love them better", and was a big fan of "mommy sabbaticals". How often do we allow for space to recharge? Well, we think it needs to happen daily, and we'll share why AND how. We'll cover three steps to allow you the space to fully show up in life - for your family and y…

In our super connected world, screens can be a love/hate relationship for sure. How does your family manage screen time at home...or does it manage you?

In this episode, we dig into this listener question - How do we navigate as empowered, inventional parents the decisions that are "BEST" for our children while listening to them and what they need, while pushing them to do what might be harder? There was so much to unpack, this week's blog post that goes along with it leads you to multiple other bl…
 
This past week we introduced a game that, ironically, was a "game-changer" in our life. It was a powerful game that shifted our perspective and made one pivotal shift in both semantics and mindset in our lives. Creating financial literacy at home - helping your children understand about investments, liabilities, assets and more - is something we se…

Ah, codependency - is it clearly identified, or a buzzword we can't quite grasp? Nathan and I are pretty much together 24/7 and definitely weigh in with each other on making decisions.

We'll share about the symbol breakdown of the word "om", my definition of "namaste", as…

I've talked often about how we can use our words to communicate, but it takes way more to truly connect. It's knowing our personality styles and how to speak to each other in a way where everyone is heard...and it's in the nonverbal cues that speak so loudly. We go over five nonverbal cues this week that are like shifting from song lyrics to a full…

Change is inevitable in our lives…yet it can be scary and overwhelming. How are you navigating change? In your home, your work…your life?
