Podcast cover

Rhonda Moskowitz, an expert recently featured in the NY Times, Style section, is our amazing guest on today's podcast.  Technology is fantastic and has so many upsides both at home and in the classroom, but when devices overtake our lives, our home, and our children suffer.  Rhonda explains the pitfalls of devices, how children do better with a pen in hand rather than a keyboard and how the endless hours on phones or computers negatively affect their brains.  Rhonda further explains that there is an actual phenomenon called "Persuasive Design" which makes it nearly impossible to stop watching once we begin so that when children' say "I can't stop" they actually cannot!  If you want to find out the best way to handle device and what to do to replace them listen to this episode with expert, Rhonda Moskowitz.

Rank #4: Natalie Silverstein, Author of Simple Acts: Your child can do this! No matter their age! And they will be happier and healthier for it!

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you often feel overwhelmed, too busy to read your to-do list let alone add one more thing to your plate? We felt the same way; between raising children, work, business ventures, the struggle of every-day life, we didn't think we had any time left in our busy schedules.  But when you want to make time you will be amazed at what happens.

Simple Acts: Of kindness, of giving back, of taking a moment to impact someone around you. Honestly "simple" is a misnomer because really acts of kindness can be hugely impactful, even life-changing which makes one believe that they are anything but simple.  Natalie Silverstein, author of Simple Acts:  The Busy Family's Guide to Giving back, explains in this week's episode how the beauty and the monumental lie in simplicity.  Grandeious acts of kindness, huge donations to charities, the Bill Gates Foundation- these are wonderful and they can be life-changing to those who are the beneficiaries of these institutions.  But you need not donate large sums of money or head a foundation to make life-changing impacts.  A smile, a kind word, a hand-made craft to the elderly, a toothbrush to the homeless these small things are anything but small.  Listen to this episode and you will fall in love with Natalie just as we did. She is an author, the founder of non-for profit and a person who followed her passion to do good all around her.  Her young husband was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease but even this failed to get her down.  After the shock of the discovery wore off, Natalie founded an organization, The Silverstein Foundation for Parkinson’s, determined to find a cure.  If you listen to Natalie you will be convinced that she will.   Natalie we are rooting for you!  Listen to this episode - it will "simply" change who you are!

Rank #5: Tedx Speaker - David Di giorgio

Podcast cover
Read more

Davide Digirio- Tedx speaker, best-selling author, motivational speaker.  Davide coined two phrases that I absolutely love: “comparanoia” and “being unapologetic”.  

Listening to Davide’s Tedx talk was like listening to your wisest friend give you advice.  It was calming, smart, and mostly just... true. We know that comparing ourselves to others is bad.  We know that children suffer from this tenfold and that the harm this does to their sense of self can be so difficult to undo.   We know as parents and educators we need to teach them that comparing themselves to others is counter to their uniqueness.  These are things we know or at least we are supposed to know. But listening to Davide talk about so many important topics in both a light-hearted fun way and a deep soulful manner is somehow more impactful than just knowing.  His calm voice and his thoughtful non-judgemental demeanor make his advice feel less like advice and more like things your grandmother always told you when she braided your hair or made you hot chocolate or helped you tie your shoes for the first time.  

Davide is an author, a speaker, an educator,  but he is so much more, listen to this Episode and you will immediately know exactly what I mean.

Dr. Ross Greene "On collaborative parenting: How to Reduce Stress and bring Harmony to your Home" on CG's Crackin' the Kid Code Podcast #104

The Kids We Lose documentary creator and author of The Explosive Child has a life changing approach for your child. Dr. Ross Greene found that rewarding good behavior and punishing bad behavior with your child does not work! Parents have expectations that some children have difficulty making. The conflict between many children and parents is that expectations are not being met and a child in conflict is feeling frustrated and exploding, causing more conflict. Dr. Greene has an innovative and supportive way of helping parents and children with conflict resolution. It’s time for parents to ask children to not only be the source of finding a solution of a problem but most importantly, have ownership of the solution. Atara and Grace speak to Dr. Ross Greene to give parents the top tips they need to defuse heated arguments and to help your child understand conflict resolution.

Rank #7: A CNN Hero teaches Kids to Kick Cancer with Karate and taking a breath! CG's Crackin' the Kid Code Podcast #107

Podcast cover

 A CNN HERO Rabbi G began a non profit organization, Kids Kicking Cancer, after watching his very young daughter die of cancer over 30 years ago.  Rather than fall into a hole of despair, Rabbi G decided to channel his grief toward helping other children and their families.   His powerful mantra- POWER PEACE PURPOSE and the term he coined and trademarked BREATH BRAKE really speaks volumes for children with cancer.  Rabbi G has taken his program globally and you can find him in remote parts of Africa and in small villages in Asia helping children to regain their power in the face of their illness.  Very remarkably, Rabbi G has been able to use his powerful techniques for children and adults everywhere with and without illness and he has been invited to teach his program to corporate executives both in the U.S. as well as across the globe.  Empowering parents and their children to regain their sense of self and empower them after trauma and illness has shown children everywhere that these techniques really DO work.   Children can feel helpless and disempowered many times during the course of their daily activities in the classroom, in the playground and even in the home.  Rabbi G is bringing his program to schools everywhere so that ALL children can reap the benefits.  You don't want to miss our conversation and you will be laughing and crying during this poignant interview.

Rank #9: If your child has ever had STREP Throat- You need to know about PANDAS on Curlee Girlee's Crackin' the Kid Code Ep #105

Podcast cover
Read more

In this week's episode, we are talking to Taralee O'Malley-Hurff about the important and not very well known topic of PANDAS.  Today October 9 is PANDAS Awareness Day and we believe this topic is important for EVERY parent to know about.  Your child may come down with a fever, chills and be diagnosed with Strept throat.  You go to the doctor, give them antibiotics and you think it is all over.  Hopefully, it is, but not always.  Taralee's O'Malley Hurff has become a reluctant advocate for PANDAS when her young daughter began exhibiting severe obsessive-compulsive disorder following a strep infection.  At first, she thought it was just "odd" behavior that would resolve itself, but as symptoms continued Taralee became frantic to find answers.  She did and in the process, she shed light on this condition that often, traditional medical doctors, are unable to diagnose.  It is a real disease and it is SCARY but knowledge is power and understanding what to look for and how to treat PANDAS can go a long way toward ultimate remission.

Taralee is a champion for families suffering with this diagnosis.  In a quiet, thoughtful way, she tells her story and through her words, our audience will be informed as to this condition so they can help their child should the need arise.  This episode is a MUST listen for every parent!

Rank #13: Dove Real Beauty Sketches' artist Gil Zamora is our acclaimed guest today!

Podcast cover

Curlee Girlee podcast interviews Gil Zamora of the famed Dove Beauty Sketches

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? All too often, we can be harsh, critical, unforgiving in how we view our reflection.  Women and girls particularly fall victim to negativity and self-loathing. Girls as young as eight or nine years old feel the pressures of social media, fitting in and looking just like their friends do.

Dove brand set out to make changes and in doing so they launched The Dove Real Beauty Sketches Campaign. Similar to what we do at Curlee Girlee, Dove wanted to empower, encourage, and appreciate women of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities and diverse make-ups. Dove wanted women to see themselves as others see them; often less critically then we see ourselves.  In an effort to spread their message, Dove Real Beauty Campaign released its real beauty sketches video. Our guest today, Gil Zamora, is integral to this campaign and this very widely viewed video is one of the most acclaimed of its kind, with over 100 million views. 

Gil Zamora began his career as a police officer for the San Jose Police Department. As a young boy, he always loved to sketch but a career in law enforcement seemed to be the “right” thing to do.  Eventually, his love and passion for drawing won out and he became certified as an FBI Sketch artist. Gil worked on many high profile cases and was instrumental in solving thousands of cases with his ability to sketch from other people’s memories.  His popularity in the San Jose area led Unilever to seek out his expertise and employ him as their sketch artist for this groundbreaking video.

I have watched this video countless times both by myself, with friends and even with my young daughters, each time I am unable to speak after the reveal is unveiled.  The impact this video will have on you will be palatable. 

Beauty standards are both innate and learned.  We can change the conversation with our children by exposing them to positive role models and influences.  Gil Zamora is one such individual. Listen to our interview and you will be entertained, humbled and awed by Gil and his accomplishments.  Together we can change the coarse of curly hair and in doing so empower ourselves and our children.

So let’s get started now!

Rank #15: NY Times essayist, My Subway Crush who Crushed me, Zoe Fishman talks about love, loss, single parenting writing and more!

Podcast cover
Read more

The Sunday NY Times Style Section is synonymous for many with sleeping late, lazy Sunday mornings, maybe a cup of coffee by your night table, perhaps a croissant or a donut half-eaten next to your newspaper.  For me, The NY Times Style section is about four words:  The Modern Love Column.  I LOVE the modern love column.  I wait for it all week, get excited to know the paper will be at my door, grab it before my husband can crinkle it up, making it harder to find my page.  And when it is in my hands I immediately flip through until I find the familiar font and the simple drawings accompanying this column. When I read Zoe Fishman’s column recently, The Subway Crush Who Crushed Me, I was blown away. Zoe’s writing is like poetry; her words flow one into the other and I found myself teary-eyed and choked up, not even realizing I was crying until a tear dropped on the paper in front of me.  I knew I had to interview Zoe; I wanted to hear her story in her own voice and share her words with our audience.

Zoe is now a single mom, a published author, a writing teacher but more than all of that she is thoughtful, deliberate, interesting and funny.  I liked her as much as I had hoped I would; the woman behind the words does not disappoint. Read the column here and listen to our podcast with Zoe Fishman. You will laugh, smile, maybe shed a tear.  You will definitely walk away holding the ones you love more closely, remembering that life is precious and that moments of happiness lie in the mundane and that in the end only love is real!

Dave Dahl- founder of Dave’s Killer Bread:  If you love healthy, whole-grain breads, his name is synonymous with the best bread known to mankind.    But Dave’s story is more really one of transformation.  Dave was homeless, then in prison with little hope of a promising future and yet somehow he turned his life around and in doing so, he found peace balance and purpose in his life.

Dave’s Killer bread not only makes delicious bread that will feed your family in a natural healthful way but the company’s mission of employing ex-felons teaches us all a lesson of second chances.

As parents, we constantly need to remind ourselves and our children that mistakes are not fatal and that they cannot define who we are.  We have the ability to turn things around and do the right thing and with proper guidance, we can learn to read, follow instructions, make better friends and eventually build multi-million dollar companies.  Dave Dahl is living proof.  Listen to his words carefully and you will hear a story of positive change that everyone can learn from.

Angela Santomero- Executive Producer of Blues Clues and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood!

Podcast cover
Read more

If you and your kids love Blues Clues and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood- listen to this episode and meet the creator and executive producer!  Angela Santomero is so multi talented it's hard to attribute just one or two adjectives to her.  But when I think of making a difference and contributing to a positive impact on children, I think of Angela.

Angela began her career in the early 1990's at Nickelodeon.  Her Talents were quickly and easily identified and she became executive producer and writer of the very popular kids show Blues Clues.  When Fred Rogers died in 2003, "Kevin Morrison (CEO-Fred Rogers Co.) reached out to Angela and asked what show she would do to honor Fred's legacy". Her idea was an animated version of Fred Rogers' Neighborhood of Make Believe. This was the birth of  the very popular Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.  Angela recently added "best selling author" to the list of credentials as the author of her new book, Radical Kindness.  Hopefully we can all make a difference in other people's lives.  Angela and the children's shows she creates, make an impact that will last a long time!
