21. Kids and PTSD

Notes by Khia

24. Is This A Phase? The Power of Love and Acceptance for LGBTQ+ Youth
It seems like more and more youth are taking on (or taking off) labels that maybe you're not used to hearing.  I was joined by LGBTQ+ advocate, Jennifer Boudrye, to discuss what is going on with our youth and how we, as the adults, can show up for them.  According to the 2022 report conducted by The Trevor Project, a widely known advocacy agency for LGBTQ+ youth, "73% of LGBTQ+ youth experience anxiety" and 58% of those youth experience depression.  Being aware that this is still a hot/taboo topic particularly when it comes to youth, this podcast episode is not to debate what is right vs. wrong. This episode instead is intended to give adults support, as well as additional perspectives in how to support youth who you may know that share with you they feel connected to this community in any way.  Whether you have a child who has "come out" to you or not and regardless of what your beliefs are I encourage you to listen to the entire episode with an open heart and mind.  If you would like additional support or have additional questions you can always reach out to Jennifer through her website, or Khia at  Additional resources: CDC

18. That's NOT Mindful Parenting!
If what comes to mind when you think of mindful parenting is the parent who seems to have no "control" and allows their children to run all over them I'm here to tell you, that's not quite it - that is parenting without boundaries. This episode discusses how to use boundaries to decrease your stress, improve behaviors, and help you get back to the joy of parenting.

17. It's Not Working
Mindful Parenting is WORK!! One of the most common things I hear when teaching parents about being mindful in their parenting is, "We tried that, it didn't work". The thing is, as frustrating as it may be you have to keep working at it, it won't change over night - tbh, it probably won't change completely in the next 3 months. In this episode I am taking you through why it seems to be taking so long or not working and what you can do to make this a better experience for you and your family.  Connect with me:  Instagram: @notesbykhia  Facebook Community: Parents Raising Mentally Healthy Children  Let's Work Together: Book a Call With Me ☎️ 👀 FREEBIE 🎉
