You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 160. This is a rebroadcast episode from one where I got to hang out with my pal Bryce.

We were chatting about the social norms in the cultural context around moms and self-care in the martyrdom that often comes with motherhood and we work really hard at Seed to be inclusive and also to acknowledge spaces where there is certain social programming or cultural norms. And this is one of those where I think self-care in parenthood is crucial and I think that there needs to...

00:00:01    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 159. So often folks reach out and they're like this sounds great. If you have, like, one kid and you can devote all your attention and time to them to respond and all that jazz, but what do you do when multiple kiddos need your support? That's what so much of this work has looked like in practice for me. It's very rare that I have had one child where I can devote my time and energy to; most of this practice for me has been in a setting where I have seven infants or nine toddlers or 18 preschoolers or multiple kids in a home of different ages and...

I don't know about you, but this was something that has come up in my life a lot and something I've had to do a lot of work around. It's something we talk about on the seed team a whole bunch that we couldn't put work out into the world and support you and walk alongside you on this journey if we were waiting until...

00:00:01    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 155. In this episode, we are sharing a snapshot into the Tiny Humans Big Emotions course with you. This portion is all about boundaries. We get so many questions about what it looks like to set boundaries with kids, to hold them, what if they say no to both choices, what do you do? How do you structure boundaries so that you can be in collaboration with your kiddos, rather than in conflict. Before we dive in,  I wanted to let you know about a free challenge that we're doing! We're doing a five day challenge; we heard from you loud and clear after our December workshop on re-parenting that...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 154 in this episode. Dr. Smita Malhotra, a pediatrician, and I got to dive into building resiliency in kiddos. What a year for building resiliency. I feel like we've all had so much practice over the last year and as we head into 2021 here, I want to look at how do we take challenges from "I didn't get the cup I wanted" or "I'm frustrated as I'm trying to do my schoolwork" to "I can't see my friends or go to school in the way that I used to", how do we take those things and navigate them and work through them and come out the other side resilient. Dr. Smita has a practice in California,...

00:00:01    Speaker 1: 

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 152. This is a rebroadcast of one of my favorite episodes on setting boundaries with adults, and as adults. I got to hang out with my friend Xavier Dagba and dive into this. There are so many nuggets of wisdom in here. He is such a gem and it's such an important season to talk about boundaries. Let's get real, every season is an important season to talk about boundaries, but I feel like around the holidays and when we are connecting or interacting with folks that may trigger things from our childhood. It's really important to have boundaries in the forefront. Before we dive into this...
