When Autism Grows Up - Interview with Coach Lynn C. Davison
Parents, If the thought of your child becoming an independent adult seems like an impossibility right now, please know that that's OK. Raising a differently-wired child means letting go of the traditional roadmap to adulthood and helping your young adult design their unique path toward a fulfilling life that they can manage.  In this interview, life coach, Lynn C Davison and I boil down the process of parenting into a concrete system that helps you shift from the impossible to the possible, and into the inevitable. P.S., You can find Lynn on her website at www.LynnCDavison.com; on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WhenAutismGrowsUp; or email her at lynn@lynncdavison.com.

Calm your nervous system & heal trauma through breathwork [Interview]
I'm thrilled to bring you this interview with my personal meditation and breathwork coach, Jeannie Kulwin. I can say without hesitation that this is one of the most important conversations I've shared on this podcast.    Here's why...   Many of us (myself included) go OUT OF OUR WAY not to feel our feelings.    We would rather...  Binge watch TV shows  Binge eat carbs and sugars  Drink excessively  Smoke Cigarettes  Work ourselves ragged  Run up credit card debt on "retail therapy"  Spend countless hours on social media and gaming While this stuff provides us with some momentary relief, we know it's really a way for us to avoid dealing with uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. So, on top of the built-up stress, we pile on the self-criticism and shame...and so the cycle continues. How do we break this vicious cycle? How do we recharge our batteries and have enough energy to power through the day? How do we actually reduce our stress and heal our trauma? How can we teach kids do the same? There is no cookie-cutter answer here... Each of us need to embark on our own self-care journey and find what works for us. I hope that sharing my personal journey helps to illuminate the path forward for you. In service, Yulia

NO SHAME Parenting
In this podcast my friend, math professor, and mother of seven, LaTanya Carter, shares her insights about parenting seven completely different individuals, and the importance of freedom in her home. Quotes from our conversation: "I became combative, because I didn't want the opposition, so I was fearful that she [my daughter] was taking over. So I would react in ways, that I think now, were ridiculous."

Does your Child have GRIT?
In today's podcast: I speak to math professor and mom of seven kids, LaTanya Carter, about identity, grit, and navigating the dysfunctional public school system. P.S. Like this podcast? Thank you! Please share it to help me reach more parents. Quotes from our conversation: "It never shows up on her report card, though, because this is not what we're testing in school. And for her, the grit is lost in the system, and she loses a part of herself." "At some point, I had to realize the things I'm being asked to take from her, are later going to be asked from me to give back to her, to empower her."
