How to Talk to Kids about Money Values, Spending & Giving with Chelsea Brennan

Special Guest: Chelsea Brennan Many parents believe that money is another taboo topic that we just don’t discuss. After all, there is a lot of emotion, status, privilege and judgment tied up with money that make it a topic that can be triggering to many. But when you think about it- where are kids learning about money these days? Many only see the swipe of a credit card & the magic of online shopping- where we press some buttons and we walk out with stuff—or better yet, it appears at our door or in our mailbox! We know this isn’t how it works- and it’s important to teach our kids about money- what we value, what we might be saving for, what we choose to spend money on, which charities we may give money to and what seems frivolous, unnecessary or even counter-productive. But how do we talk to our kids about our family money values, goals and choices- and how can we help set them up with the knowledge, skills and understanding so that they know how to handle money when they need to make important financial decisions later in life? Today we’ll talk to Chelsea Brennan for some answers.

How to Talk to Kids about Dignity with Dr. Donna Hicks – ReRelease

As we discuss conversations on this podcast— key conversations we must have with our children about tough topics— sex, death, divorce, porn, failure, ADHD, bullying— discussions where emotions can run high, agendas can cloud openness and listening and true presence— fear can make us shy away from saying what truly needs to be said, or heard or understood. What if there was a step that we needed to take before we had these all important conversations— a step that acknowledged the importance of dignity for each person— to hold another person’s dignity as precious and valuable while also knowing that our own would be kept in tact as well. How might that affect these key conversations we have with our partners, with our children, with teachers, instructors, coaches— people who touch our lives and help to shape how they evolve. And what if we focused on dignity as a fundamental part of raising our children to become leaders— showing and discussing how we can lead with dignity and create a culture that brings out the best in people? For these questions and more, we turn to our distinguished guest, Dr. Donna Hicks.

How to Talk to Girls about Drama-Free Friendships with Annie Fox – ReRelease

Special Guest: Annie Fox Annie Fox is an Award winning writer, app developer and Educator Focusing on Social-Emotional learning and character development. Annie aims to teach kids to be good people because we need more good people. We are all villagers, so it's up to us. Some of her books include: Teaching Kids to Be Good People, Too Stressed to Think?, the Middle School Confidential book and app series, and the Raymond and Sheila picture books series. Annie’s latest book, The Girls’ Q&A Book on Friendship, offers 8-12 year old girls (and their parents/teachers) 50 ways to fix a friendship without the DRAMA. And that topic, talking to girls about friendship, is what lands her on the show today and we couldn’t be more excited. Girls and friendship. For some, this topic makes them smile and think of the most endearing, close, meaningful relationships of their lives. For others, it makes them sweat and feel a little sick. Maybe it’s a little bit of both!

Praise for Dr. Robyn

Wow! If your school district has not invited Dr. Robyn Silverman to speak with staff and parents about bullying, you and they are missing out on one of the best opportunities. Everyone was engaged and left with practical and implementable to use with children. They also learned that they and the school are a team working together to provide a safe environment for all students.

Dr. Silverman has a unique way of making this taboo subject simple and relevant to the particular audience. She is brilliant – her knowledge of the subject, her wit and her engaging style kept our attendees captivated. Robyn’s energy, conviction, and the undeniable truth of her message inspired so many to take action – to do something NOW to make a positive difference in the lives of girls. The preparation and care that Robyn takes to craft her powerful message specifically for the target audience is a mark of her professionalism and her commitment to girls

It was phenomenal!!!!  Dr. Robyn did a great job and we touched the lives (and changed the lives) for many young women! It was a very rewarding experience and we will definitely work with Robyn again for our McLean event and our Houston event.

In her energetic and engaging style, Dr. Silverman was able to touch upon vital issues that mothers and daughters are beginning to face in their child’s “tween” years. Her interactive exercises, “rewards” for audience participation, storytelling, and posed questions allowed both mothers and daughters to open up in a non threatening environment using effective communication tools in a fun and exciting way.

As the applause, laughter, participation, and evaluations reflected, the audience found this to be an excellent presentation, appreciating Dr. Silverman’s enthusiasm and easy going, accessible style. We had many people make a point to come over and tell us how much they loved the event and to thank us for a wonderful evening.

We were so glad to work with Dr. Silverman on this amazing night and look forward to working with her again in the future. We highly recommend her as a speaker for your next event.

On behalf of our students, staff, and parents, I would like to say “Thank You” for a wonderful presentation! Several kids expressed their thankfulness to me for having you come and speak to them, and the response from the parents was awesome. We will continue to educate, expect great things from our kids, and build a school of character! Thank you again.

Working with Dr. Robyn Silverman was an absolute joy. Not only did she ensure that her keynote speech suited the needs of our event, but her energy and excitement delivering it were unparalleled. She brought not only expertise and practical skills to our girls but also warmth and genuine care for her audience. Dr. Robyn’s presentation set the tone for the rest of the day, enabling girls to open up, learn, and have fun. It was clear that they had connected to her message and walked away inspired.

Dr. Silverman is awesome! She is an incredible speaker, and the sincerity and truth in her words are evident. After the presentation to the students, they expressed their appreciation with a standing ovation–which doesn’t happen often in junior high!

Dr. Robyn was amazing! Before the workshop officially started, she walked around and warmly welcomed each woman by shaking her hand and saying hello. I loved this…Dr. Robyn’s mix of personal anecdotes, eye-opening statistics, and disturbing images make the seminar funny, warm, emotional, and touching… Attending Dr. Robyn’s seminar empowered me to want to do even more. She empowered us to be the change we want for our girls, and instead of just leaving it at that, she gave us realistic steps we can take to counteract the negative and confusing messages presented to our girls on a daily basis. And I wasn’t the only one who was impressed. Our participants LOVED Dr. Robyn! They lined up in droves to buy her book, Good Girls Don’t Get Fat, have her sign it, and speak with her about their thoughts, opinions, and gratitude…I am working to collaborate with Dr. Robyn in the future!
