056 Emotional Literacy for Homeschooling - a Curriculum for Parents, Teachers and Kids
In this episode, Amy Gregory, an awesome elementary public school teacher who holds a PhD in Spanish linguistics, joins us for an authentic conversation about the beauty, power and importance of emotional literacy. At home and at school, emotional resilience is generated when children learn to honor their full spectrum of emotions. Emotional literacy gives us the freedom to connect with others and the power to walk with self-confidence. Every good parent wants their children to be happy. Emotional literacy gives us the capacity to increase our joy.

039 In what ways are you stretching past your comfort zone in order to be your best?
In this episode, Michele and I decided to change things up a bit. We met on Zoom, so you can see our video below. The process of being recorded was a little bit awkward. Awkward is an awkward word to say and to spell. Why did we do this? Because we had the joy of meeting with Joanne Reed who will be our podcast guest later this week, and her technology wasn't able to access our podcast app where we usually record our audios. So, this meeting and recording on Zoom was a test run which will be made available as a Podcast episode as well. We hope you enjoy it. Let's take a moment to appreciate ourselves in all of our awkward humanness. It's part of growing and learning and stretching past our comfort zones!
