I am so EXCITED to share this BONUS podcast with you all!! I had the honor of talking to Alison Soracchi from Carry the Future about the incredible work they are doing, providing baby carriers to refugees in Greece.
This conversation is an emotional one, and really highlights how meaningful a small gesture from one human being to another can be... Alison shares stories about the work volunteers are engaged in here in the states, and paints a picture of how the volunteers on the ground in Greece are living the vision.
Just listen. No doubt you will be inspired :)

It was so fun to have the chance to speak one on one with a listener about the challenges she is facing with your your son.
Listen in and notice how universal some of the feelings and thoughts are that you hear Stephanie speak into...
The parenting journey is a collective experience. You are not alone!
Who doesn't get into power struggles with their kids???
Listen in as Debbie Zeichner, LCSW and parent coach, and I discuss the triggers for power struggles and how to navigate them in a way that leaves your kids with MORE skills and MORE likely to cooperate.
This podcast interview is a long one, because the conversation was just that good.
Listen in as I talk with Denise Dryden, integrative coach, about how we can shed the stories and emotional baggage we show up to parent with so that we can be conscious and available to the child we find in front of us.
One of my favorite quotes from the conversation is Denise encouraging parents to think about in regards to their children, "what do I see that is unique and different, and how do I let them lead me into the future?"
She is a wise woman and it is my honor to know her!
