So here we are with another podcast. We’re still liking our new format, but as always, we’d love your feedback!
The podcast begins with our latest tip - setting a timer at bedtime to make sure we get kids to bed on time when we might be otherwise distracted. Rylan mentioned an alarm he has installed on his computer to make sure we get kids to Tae Kwon Do (and then again so we don’t forget to pick them up ). Here’s a link for the clock he uses, and I’m sure there are lots of others available: http://www.clocx.net/
We then talk about the teleclasses that I’ve participated in with Toni Schutta ( http://getparentinghelpnow.com/ and http://familiesfirstcoaching.com/ ). I’ve really enjoyed the three classes I have been involved in, and I love being able to re-listen to the information on the audio files she sends after the class. She has so many great ideas for parents!
Pinewood Derby racing was our next topic, including some of the the good conversations Rylan had with the kids about winning and losing. It’s hard to be a good loser, especially when you came in second place! If you’re in scouting, you might find some great ideas from our experience this year.
We talked about the scare we had in the parking lot. One day the kids were racing ahead of me a bit, until we realized we were behind a car with it’s back-up lights on. Although frightening, the incident prompted me to discuss some parking lot safety ideas I had never considered before.
Thanks for listening - send us your ideas for podcast topics and be sure to let us know what you like about the show!
