BONUS post: Kids' Questions About Friendship
The funnest podcast I've ever done.
I was invited to be a guest on “But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids” on Vermont Public Radio. The topic was, “Why do we have friends?” The hosts, Jane Lindholm and Melody Bodette, included recordings of children asking questions about friendship. The kids were so cute!!! This was absolutely the funnest podcast I have ever done!
You can hear a recording HERE. And here’s a TRANSCRIPT, if you’d rather read.
Tell me what you think: Would you like me to answer more questions from kids? Should I set up a way that parents can send me a recording of their child’s (brief) question about friendship?

* Kid Confidence: Help Your Child Build Real Self-Esteem (Webinar)
Wednesday, Oct. 26 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm (Eastern US time)
Directly trying to improve children’s self-esteem tends to backfire. The more we tell self-doubting kids, “You’re wonderful!”, the harder they argue, “I’m terrible!” This presentation addresses common self-esteem challenges: feeling friendless, giving up easily, and struggling with feeling different. Instead of trying to “boost” children’s self-esteem, we need to help them break free of harsh self-focus and discover the joy of a quiet ego by connecting with something bigger than themselves.
* Dealing with Kids and Extended Family (Conversation Hour)
Wednesday, Nov. 16 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm (Eastern US time)
Getting together with relatives for holidays or events can be fun but also stressful–especially when kids are involved. Old family dynamics or newer differences in parenting styles can raise tension or create disagreements. Join Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore for an informal question and answer session about ways to increase the fun and lower the stress around family gatherings.
