Hunter talks to Kristen Race about Mindful Family Living.

Stress these days is an epidemic for families—parents and kids. How do we build up resiliency to stress from BOTH the inside-out and the outside-in? In this episode, I talk to Kristen Race, the author of Mindful Parenting, about how we can make small shifts to make profound changes.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. Setting up an ideal life from the outside doesn’t work. Resilience has to come from within
2. Our stress as parents is contagious— it leads to stressed out kids
3. We can mentally create more space in our days

Hunter talks to Nicole Lovald about How to Recover From Mom Burnout.

My guest, Nicole Lovald, was a military spouse juggling a full-time job, a two year-old, and the constant stress of dreading the word that her husband would be killed or injured when her hair started falling out in clumps. The continuous stress of her life caused her body to start shutting down. Hear the story of how she found her way out through yoga, and now teaches others to recognize the signs of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm in our bodies and find better ways of managing it.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. When we live in constant stress, our bodies can start to shut down.
2. Losing patience is a sign that you need to take care of yourself.
3. It’s noble to be of service to others, but if you sacrifice yourself, your giving won’t be as meaningful.

Nicole Lovald is a former corporate addict turned yoga teacher, life coach, and self-care advocate. She is the owner of Spirit of the Lake Yoga and Wellness Center and the author of the book, Om Sweet Om: A Corporate Junkies Search for Enlightenment.

Do you feel like you are constantly doing? Like your to-do list overfloweth? Too many of us aren’t present with our families because we’re constantly going in an effort to feel worth in our achievement-dominant culture. But did you know that it’s actually MORE efficient to do less?

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. We can do less and actually be more productive
2. Your menstrual cycle can show you when is the best time to rest

Hunter talks to Nefertiti Austin about Motherhood So White.

That's what Nefertiti, a single African American woman, discovered when she decided she wanted to adopt a Black baby boy out of the foster care system. Eager to finally join the motherhood ranks, Nefertiti was shocked when people started asking her why she wanted to adopt a "crack baby" or said that she would never be able to raise a Black son on her own. She realized that American society saw motherhood through a white lens, and that there would be no easy understanding or acceptance of the kind of family she hoped to build.

Motherhood So White is the story of Nefertiti's fight to create the family she always knew she was meant to have and the story of motherhood that all American families need now. In this unflinching account of her parenting journey, Nefertiti examines the history of adoption in the African American community, faces off against stereotypes of single, Black motherhood, and confronts the reality of raising children of color in racially charged, modern-day America.

Honest, vulnerable, and uplifting, Motherhood So White reveals what Nefertiti knew all along―that the only requirement for a successful family is one raised with love.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. The 4 vital things that every mom, but especially solo moms, need
2. Black moms have the added burden of teaching
3. White parents can do things to ease the burden on black parents

Nefertiti Austin is the single mother of two children she adopted from the foster care system. Her memoir, “Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America,” comes out in September.

When you’re a single, black, adoptive mother, you look around this culture and find very little representation. So much so that your story may be invisible to the white majority. While we know that not every family looks like Donna Read, many white moms may not realize the ways that we can support black moms—or make it even harder.

Hunter talks to Sarah Mitchell about How To Get Your Baby To Sleep.

The quality and quantity of babies sleep makes a HUGE impact on our lives. Unfortunately, having no experience with this before we go into parenting, most of us don’t really understand some important truths about babies’s sleep that can make all the difference in the world. This episode just may save your sanity!

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. The way we sleep is learned
2. There are 2 main reasons why babies don’t sleep well
3. The power of “le pause”

Originally from Canada, Sarah moved to California in 2014 with her husband and two children.  Sarah has a Bachelor of Kinesiology and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, but found her true calling helping parents get their kids to sleep at Helping Babies Sleep.  

As a sleep consultant, Sarah empowers parents to teach their babies and toddlers to sleep by educating parents on age appropriate sleep needs and sleep training options.  Sarah thinks there's no one way to raise your child, or get them to sleep, but not to forget that you are an important person too. 

When she’s not helping babies sleep, picking up from preschool or watching kids on the playground, she enjoys talking to adults, exploring new sights, and seeing live music with friends.

Hunter talks to Aprilia West about Become An Emotion Whisperer.

Have you been pulled away from your intention to parent peacefully by your reactions recently? Mommy tantrums (and daddy tantrums) are one of our big downfalls as parents. What if, instead, you could act from your values no matter what you are feeling? In this episode, I talk to Dr. Aprilia West, psychologist and “Emotion Whisperer” who teaches us how to take care of our difficult feelings so that we can show up fully for life.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. If we try to avoid feeling our feelings, they control your life
2. Emotions are messengers
3. Learning how to relax with our emotions is key

APRILIA WEST is a Los Angeles-based licensed clinical psychologist, trainer, executive coach, and organizational consultant and is recognized as an expert in emotion efficacy.

Hunter talks to Bethany about How To Handle Potty Talk.

“My recent challenges have to do with my 6 year old being negative and using inappropriate language in public (which results in my 4 year old doing the same). I usually end up threatening consequences to get them to stop.” 

Potty talk is so annoying, but it gets worse when your child does it in public — then it’s embarrassing too! In this on-air coaching call, listen as I talk to Bethany about how to deal with embarrassing potty talk and other things that her 6 year-old son says.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. Resorting to threats may seem to “work” in the short run, but in the long run creates resistance
2. It’s vital to acknowledge and feel our feelings
3. Our beliefs under the surface can often drive our behavior

Hunter talks to Tosha Schore about Listening To Boys.

It’s time to be more conscious about how we are raising our boys. Culturally, there’s a lot more shaming going on for boys because we don’t want them to grow up “soft.” But is that really what helps? What do boys need to grow up to be emotionally healthy, and how can we provide that for them?

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. It’s time to look at “bad” behavior as a cry for help
2. What to do when your child hits you
3. Listening to each other can help us be that safe space for our boys

Tosha Schore creates happy households by building your parenting confⅰdence and helping parents shift boys' behaviors through connection. She is co-author of “Listen: Five Simple Tools to Meet Your Everyday Parenting Challenges."

Hunter talks to Susan Kaiser Greenland about Mindfulness Together.

Mindfulness practices help you become less reactive, so how can you share it with your kids? It helps kids enormously to carry with them a set of tools to help them whenever they get upset or life gets overwhelming. My guest today, Susan Kaiser Greenland, has made a career out of sharing these tools with kids in ways that truly make a difference.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. Self-compassion, keeping a sense of humor, and taking care of ourselves are the three most important things for parents
2. Mindfulness activities that help children when they are feeling upset or when they have “too much birthday”
3. Teach mindfulness games to kids first when they are NOT upset, so there’s less resistance

Susan Kaiser Greenland is an internationally recognized leader in teaching mindfulness and meditation to children, teens, and families. She co-founded The Inner Kids Foundation, a not-for-profit that taught secular mindfulness in schools and community-based programs in greater LA.

Hunter talks to Sharon Salzberg about Lovingkindness & Mindfulness for Real Happiness.

From an early childhood filled with fear, uncertainty, and trauma, Sharon Salzberg found that the teachings of the Buddha normalized her suffering and gave her a path to liberation. She has followed that path to become one of the most preeminent teachers of mindfulness in the world through her writings, talks, and retreats. In this episode, Sharon shares insights into meditation and lovingkindness practice in her down-to-earth, relatable way that provides true insight.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. The engine for insight is mindfulness
2. Lovingkindness practice is an antidote to fear
3. The core of meditation and lovingkindness practice is to shift how we’re relating to our own experience

Hunter talks to Annaka Harris about Teaching Kids Mindfulness.

What does one do when fascinated about the nature of experience itself? If you are my podcast guest, Annaka Harris, you write a children’s book, teach mindfulness to children, and write about this mystery of the universe for adults in her latest book, Conscious. Hear how she began her own mindfulness practice, how it relates to parenting her children, and get a taste of the mystery of consciousness.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. Best practices for sharing the power of mindfulness with kids
2. It’s okay to say “I don’t know” to our children and can in fact be beneficial
3. Getting curious about our experience can relieve suffering

Girls are socialized to avoid risk and failure, while boys are expected and rewarded for taking risks and being brave. This leads to a world full of women who are paralyzed by perfectionism, unable to take steps outside our comfort zones, tamping down our dreams. In this episode, I talk to Reshma Saujani, CEO of Girls Who Code and author of Brave Not Perfect, about how to cultivate our bravery.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. We can get confused between things that we’re good at and things we like.
2. Our fears of girls getting hurt can lead them to limit themselves later on.
3. We need to slow down and give kids time to figure things out themselves.

Reshma Saujani is the author of the international bestseller Brave, Not Perfect and the New York Times Bestseller Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World.
She is the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, the international nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology while teaching girls confidence and bravery through coding.

Hunter talks to Mary Laura Philpott about From Striving for Perfect to Honestly Authentic.

Mary Laura Philpott thought she’d cracked the code: always make the right choice, and you’ll always be happy. But her relentless mom life and to-do list didn’t bring her contentment, it brought anxiety. In this conversation we talk about how holding herself to the “perfect” standard left her struggling and how she, bit-by-bit, moved herself to a place of better balance and authenticity.

Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. There is no way to parent perfectly.
2. Doing the “right” things according to our culture doesn’t necessarily lead to happiness.
3. Change is always possible. Indeed, it’s the only thing we can count on.
