It’s often said that teaching and learning doesn’t always take place in the classroom. And the same is true for educators, whose teaching philosophies can be shaped by lessons that come from being a parent or coach, traveling abroad, or advancing into a new role. That was the case for four teachers featured on episode two of our four-part series on why teachers teach.

Teens & Depression In this episode, Dr. Sara and Dr. John take on the serious topic of teenage depression. There are no laughs or giggles, but you’ll get to hear Sara ask John a rapid-fire series of many questions about teen depression, which is sort of funny. Her questions include: (a) how parents can distinguish between depression and normal sadness, (b) whether anti-depressant medications are effective, (c) what sorts of therapies might be helpful, and many more. John dazzles with trivia (what percent of children “recovered” from their depressive symptoms in the first-ever double-blind, placebo-controlled study of antidepressant medications?) and yes, once again, Sara will find a way to mention sex   This podcast is brought to you by the Charles Engelhard Foundation and the National Parenting Education Network.   Resources Mentioned in this Podcast:   The Anti-Depressant Book: A Practical Guide for Teens and Young Adults to Overcome Depression and Stay Healthy By: Jacob Towery MD Beyond the Blues: A Workbook to Help Teens Overcome Depression By: Lisa M.

Get Curious, Not Furious: Discipline Again & Again, and Some More.

Practically Perfect Parenting Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

All children misbehave—at least sometimes. You know that. You also know your particular child or children will misbehave; it might even happen every day. And you know how to use positive discipline—partly because it was covered in the two previous episodes of the Practically Perfect Parenting Podcast. Why then, when your child misbehaves, is it so easy to get mad and so difficult to be a thoughtful and positive disciplinarian? In this episode, Dr. Sara Polanchek and Dr. John Sommers-Flanagan discuss why children misbehave and how to solve obstacles to healthy discipline by . . . getting curious, not furious. To make things better still, our special expert guest, Meg Akabas, author of “52 Weeks of Parenting Wisdom,” shares her thoughts on parenting knowledge, when and how parents should give their children choices, and when parents should just tell their kids what to do. This podcast is brought to you by the National Parenting Education Network, and The Charles Engelhard Foundation.
