00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village and today I got to hang out with Ed Center to chat about sharing our cultural traditions without passing on trauma. There are so many things from our childhood that we might want to pass on and so many that we might not and sometimes these get muddled and mixed and we might wonder like how do we separate some parts of this? What does it look like to parent kids who are experiencing a lot of trauma or who have experienced trauma, we got to chat about so many things in this episode that were so rich. I wish I just had more time with Ed. He's the founder of The Village Well Parenting. And it's a community where parents...

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village and today we're diving into baby talk, "fake" helplessness, and regressions with Caley Kukla. I have been following Caley on Instagram for a long time and so it was no shock to me when it felt like we could have just hung out forever. It was such a fun conversation to get to have because I feel like these things are so triggering for so many of us. I know for myself, the like fake helplessness, the like, oh, I can't do it, I need help, in like that voice, oh gosh, it can like grate at my insides and it takes a lot for me to be able to respond with intention. So if you are in a season or you are triggered by...

When Your Nervous System is Overwhelmed by your Child's Sensory Needs with OT Larissa Geleris

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. And today we get to dive into something that really hits home for me. We get to chat with Larissa Geleris about when your nervous system is overwhelmed by your child's sensory needs. Larissa is an occupational therapist and y 'all know how much I love an OT. It was really helpful because really right when Sage was pretty young, it became clear that he and I are a sensory mismatch. That what fuels me and is recharging for me is the opposite of what fuels him and is recharging for him and then vice versa. What fuels him and is recharging for him is the opposite for me. I, for instance, am a sound sensitive human. So...

The "Good Enough" Principle of Digital Parenting with Dr. Katie Davis

 

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. And today I got to hang out with Dr. Katie Davis. She wrote a book that I'm finding so helpful. It's called Technology's Child, Digital Media's Role in the Ages and Stages of Growing Up. One of the things as a parent that I truly like feel a little lost in is what this looks like when it comes to technology and social media and just like what they're consuming, because it's so different from how we were raised, right? Like we are really sailing this ship as we build it or whatever that phrase is. Zach always makes fun of me because I just don't ever know the right way to say the phrase, but whatever that is,...

All right, here we go.  I am here today with two special guests, I get to bring Zach, my husband, on today, and our little Mila Bean is snoozing in a carrier on me, at least for now, which is bonkers because Sage, our first, would have never snoozed in this room with a light...

Her book The Five Resets helps us dive into what it looks like to reduce stress and overwhelm so that we can show up as our best self. I love her work because it's so actionable and practical. I think it's especially key to look at how to reduce overwhelm in a time of chronic stress, where when we look at the past few years, we've had a lot of chronic stressors. And diving into some real tips and strategies around what this looks like and why it's important, and that not all...

She is a Columbia University trained psychologist and an intergenerational trauma expert and the author of her new book, Break the Cycle. It's out right now. And y 'all, we were chatting about this so so much in this interview, but I can't stress enough how key building awareness of our intergenerational patterns and triggers and trends is for us doing this work with tiny humans and knowing that this impact of us doing this work goes far beyond us. I chat with her too in this interview...

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 264. I got to hang out with Pam Luk to chat about building allyship for plus size kids. We know that the world that we are living in today is so different from the world that so many of us grew up in, and we all are coming to the table with our childhood experiences and our cultural experiences, and that includes our body experiences, what we've experienced in our bodies, what we've heard about our bodies, what we've been exposed to in media and all around us. And we get to have a real, open, honest conversation about what it looks like to build allyship for plus size kids.  I'm so jazzed...

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 263. Y 'all know I love hanging out with an OT, an Occupational Therapist, and today I got to hang out with OT Julia Ieslin to talk about high energy kiddos. We are diving into what it looks like to support those sensory seekers who have a lot of energy, and trying to meet those needs-- and what does that look like? How do we do that as an adult? How do we do that in families of multiples or in a classroom setting when you can't give one-to-one attention? It can be exhausting. I loved getting to team up with Julia for this episode and I'm so jazzed to get to bring it to you. I don't think this...

Transforming our Attachment Patterns with Eli Harwood

00:00:01    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village and boy, do I have a banger of an episode for you today. I got to hang out with Eli Harwood. She is such a dreamboat. Her Instagram handle, @attachmentnerd, if you're not following already, is a gem. And she wrote the book, Securely Attached. Y 'all, attachment is at the root of how we show up in this world. There is a whole section in Tiny Humans Big Emotions about it because we can't talk about how we interact with kids without talking about attachment, and Eli has an entire book on it and my favorite part of this is that it's a workbook- so she guides you through figuring out what your attachment style is and...
