What kind of hijinks did you get up to as a kid? Did you climb trees? Did you run around outside barefoot? Did you eat raw cookie dough? Maybe you wanted to do these and other crazy things, but you weren't allowed… Let me ask you this: what if your children wanted to? Would you let them? If you hesitate there, well, you're in the right place. The We Turned Out Okay podcast is where we learn the hows and whys of hovering less and enjoying our young children more. You get to learn from host Ka ...

I'm playing my little game again today, trying to guess what you'll think the next value in our series is… (For those of you keeping score, this is Part 3 of 5.) Today's is something even cooler, even bigger, and even more mind-blowing than exhilaration. Which is saying something, because Exhilaration is my 2021 Word of the Year! Thank you so much …
 
So, as I'm doing this series on the values that I hold most dear, I'm playing a little game with myself. I'm imagining you, asking yourself "can I guess today's value?" All I can say is, if you guess creativity, you are wrong… But not completely wrong. Thank you so much for listening! I am glad you're here <3 Karen PS I have an invitation for you: …
 
I am excited to bring you into this, the first in a five-part series on really important subject – and a fun one too! But I don't want to say too much about it. I want you to listen, and see if what you hear resonates. For this first part though, I do have one question: What should you be, in a world where you can be anything? Thank you so much for…
 
"Is this something that I care about, or is this something that someone else thinks I should care about?" – Shari Medini That's what I almost called today's episode (but used another excellent quote from today's guest for brevity's sake : ) If you want a conversation about handling all the stuff that is flying at you… If you want to feel better abo…
 
Greetings! Yes, on its surface this is a conversation (with 6-time returning champion Janine Halloran! So excited to bring her back to you!) about ADHD. But it's about so much more. It's about expectations, and how they create the roles our children inhabit. It's about us, the roles we inhabit, and how we got here. It's about what we can do that wo…
 
Greetings! THERE ARE SWEARS TODAY… So be sure to listen away from sensitive ears : ) My guest, Washington Post Parent Columnist Meghan Leahey, recorded this conversation with me back in February… and it feels even more relevant now, than when we recorded. This episode will help you: – Put important stuff in perspective – Lay to rest a childhood dem…
 
What's next? For many, that feels like the question of the moment. As I recorded this episode, there were some hopeful notes in the air, but also some serious uncertainty. A little more than a year ago everyone's lives were completely disrupted, and the stress and worry and fear that we've lived with for so long feels impenetrable. What's next? Thi…

Welcome to this first installment in my series on ADHD <3 I am honored and thrilled to bring you this conversation with pediatric occupational therapist – and mom of toddlers – Holly Peretz!

There is no manual for emerging from a pandemic, just as there is none for living through one. So my private coaching client Kate's questions might be very familiar to you: – "Am I being selfish?" (To send her child to in-person school, or summer camp.) – How do we keep "the comfort of closeness" we've had during all this, but still foster a kid's …
 
For this episode my guest, Julie Lythcott-Haims, wanted to be sure to let you all know: "this is not a show about parenting!" This one's about us, the grown-ups. Our lives, our choices, our challenges. Julie was Dean of Freshman at Stanford University for a decade, and in that time she helped the young adults who arrived at college become true grow…
 
Greetings! In today's conversation my guest, Jessica Lahey, and I discuss some big and weighty issues… This would be a good episode to listen to away from sensitive ears or wearing headphones.

Due to the content of our conversation, today's episode is going to be a good one to listen AWAY from sensitive ears… I think you're going to love today's conversation, I know I did! But some topics may be a little intense for, well, littles. Greetings! I am super excited to bring today's guest to you, educator and parent coach Sarah Scheldt, M.Ed.…
 
Greetings! Today I've got five ways that parents I work closely with are keeping going… Because even though we can see some hope on the horizon, circumstances on the ground are, shall we say, not ideal.

Greetings and best wishes for 2021!! This is my annual goals and sharing of the Word of the Year. (Last year's: ENOUGH. I apparently was really prescient in January 2020... This year's: EXHILARATED. Should be fun!) As with everything in the pandemic, it's different from other New Year's episodes that have come before. But I hope it's helpful for yo…
 
Hi friends! This is a bonus episode that I recorded to help you in the wake of January 6, 2021's storming of the United States Capitol Building by domestic terrorists, or (as you'll hear in today's episode) people that featured WTOO guest and NYT best-selling author Joshilyn Jackson calls "known jackasses." I want to give you some resources to help…

As a child development expert one of the most important jobs I have is to give parents permission to disagree with teachers or other authority figures in their children's lives. Starting at around the 50-minute mark we talk about that. It's coming up for many podcast listeners and Ninja Parents right now, and it's important to discuss! But first, I…
