You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

Irene Conlan

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

“The Aftermath of Affairs: Healing as a Couple” - Sunday October 27, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This Week’s Guest: Todd Creager, LCSW

Affairs happen. There are many reasons why people go outside their committed relationship or marriage to seek connection. Sometimes it's sexual, sometimes emotional, sometimes psychological and many times all three. It can be about what's wrong or missing in the relationship or about what's wrong or missing in the individual, or both. 

Regardless, once a partner or spouse finds out about a betrayal, the relationship goes into crisis. There are many issues to understand and tasks to address before a couple can heal. Some relationships will survive, some will thrive, and some will end. Join me and my guest Todd Creager, LCSW as we explore what it takes to recover from the aftermath of an affair. If you or someone you know has gone through a betrayal, it's important to know that it doesn't have to mean the end;  the crisis can be transformed into the beginning of something better.

“The Early Years: Building Relationship Skills in Early Childhood” - Sunday October 13, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

Today's Guest: Anita de la Puente, MA, Early Childhood Development Expert, Director of The Growing Place Child Development Center

Building relationships begins at birth. We come into this world as social beings and start learning how to navigate the world of relationships the minute we come out of the womb.  The world of relationships begins to expand exponentially once a child reaches the age of 3 or 4. This is the time that children learn how to build connections, resolve conflict, get their needs met, and become members of a larger social group. Join me and my guest Anita de la Puente as we explore how young children naturally build relationships and how you can help your young ones develop the skills needed to create successful relationships throughout their lifetime.  This topic is so important and one you won't want to miss. Remember, there is always something new to learn about yourself and others around you.

See you Sunday! 

About Anita:  Anita de la Puente is a Director at The Growing Place Child Development Center in Santa Monica where she has worked for almost 18 years.  Anita has her M. A. in Early Childhood Education and B.A. in Child & Adolescent Development. She is a member of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) as well as (ACEI) Association for Childhood Education International. Anita has visited many early childhood centers and attended study group tours of high quality early childhood programs in California, New Mexico, Oregon, Illinois and Italy. Prior to her work at The Growing Place, Anita owned and operated her own childcare program in her home for 6 years while raising her two children.

Anita believes that all children are competent and capable in their own right and should be respected as any other human is respected. The role of adults in children’s lives is to introduce them to the world by exposing them to age appropriate learning environments where they can make meaning out of different experiences and become strong and thoughtful individuals in the process. Anita wishes for all children to have the opportunity to become deep thinkers by experiencing these thought provoking environments rather than by practicing skills to the test. For example, instead of teaching preschoolers to recite the ABC’s,  Anita would support children in learning the alphabet by beginning with something more personal and familiar to them such as the letters in their  own names and then those names in their families. Every young child is motivated to learn through what she knows about her relationships around her because they are meaningful. 

With regard to discipline and young children, Anita follows the idea that when adults treat children with the expectation that children have a role in the home or school, children are happy to be in that role even as early as 2-1/2!   At this age, children naturally want to be independent and they want to contribute. The other part of that idea is that they need to know that there is a plan. That is, when things are broken down into simple steps, they can comprehend, anticipate and know that something is coming. When this happens, they are much more likely to comply to an adult request. They will also learn to become great problem solvers and creative thinkers!

Together with these ideas and her experience, Anita is currently working on raising awareness for parents about the stages of early childhood and how to maximize their relationship with their child as well as maximize their child’s significant early childhood development for a becoming a lifelong learner and a passionate, caring and successful human being.

“Parenting Teens: Challenges, Trials and Triumphs” - Sunday September 29, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This week's guest: John Webber, MA

Adolescence is all about individuation and separation from parents. It's a tricky time. It's important to balance all the needs that your teens has—you need to set limits and reinforce boundaries while allowing your teen to make choices and learn from his mistakes. You need to keep your teen safe while supporting her independence and mastery of life skills. And, you need to do all this while dealing with a child that rolls her eyes when you say something wise, pushes the boundaries on a regular basis, does stupid things from time to time, and rejects you every time you suggest you go out and see a movie together on a Saturday night.

Join me and my guest John Webber, MA as we discuss the challenges, trials and triumphs that come with the unique relationship that exist between parents and adolescents. We both bring professional and personal experience and would love to have you join the conversation.  Whether you are a parent of a teen, a teen yourself, or remember your own rite of passage, we want to hear from you! 

All perspectives count. There are wonderful things about parenting teens and there are many challenges. This is an exciting, scary, and difficult time for children as they make the transition from child to adult. We can learn all learn from each other. So let's get started.
