"In the huddle, that's kind of what I ended with: At the end of the day, you don't know going into a season like this if everything is going to work out. We are here with an opportunity to be successful...We said it at the regional meet – because you could kind of feel it building and our Top 5 were really dialed in and running well. I said, 'Take the time and appreciate what you're doing right now. There's no guarantee of it. All you can ask for is an opportunity.' And they really took advantage of that. I'm thankful for these people I'm surrounded by. This staff is awesome. This team is awesome." North Carolina State coach Laurie Henes joins the show just days after the Wolfpack won the team's first-ever NCAA cross country title. Early on in the conversation, you'll be quick to hear Coach Henes point out that NC State won AIAW Cross Country titles in 1979 and 1980 before the NCAA. She knows her NC State history because as an athlete, she was an NCAA champion and a six-time All-American for them and then went on to have a professional career that included representing the U.S. at the World Track & Field Championships in Sweden in 1995. She finished just two spots away from making the Olympic team the following year. By that point, she had already been a member of the NC State coaching staff for four years. Now, she's been the women's head coach for 16 years. In this conversation with me and my co-host Mac Fleet, you'll hear more about how she's fostered and created such a successful team and atmosphere and a bit about her thoughts on the success of female coaches within the NCAA. Right after we got off the call with her, she was named the Southeast Regional Coach of the Year and I'm sure that's not the last honor that's going to come from this remarkable year for her and the team.

November is National Adoption Awareness Month, and this week's guest is sharing why military families can make amazing foster and adoptive families. In the U.S., nearly half a million children are in the foster care system on any given day. While those numbers are staggering, there's much that we can do to help, whether it's becoming a foster or adoptive family ourselves or supporting those who do. Does it seem like fostering and adoption wouldn't work for a military family? If you've ever been interested in this topic, you'll want to listen to this episode! Courtney Woodruff discusses some of the challenges of fostering and adoption as a military family but also how it can work out so amazingly well. She talks about how to start the process and some of her own experiences. She and her husband have fostered ten children and recently adopted a baby, so she is right in the thick of it! We're also talking about Courtney's new books for children. Some of the proceeds go to support foster and adoptive families! See the complete show notes for this episode.

In part II of “Fostering Hate,” we tell the stories of LGBTQ parents and children navigating a foster system with a history of anti-LGBTQ discrimination. Too often, foster parents are not adequately vetted or trained. In this episode, we meet LGBTQ people who have been deeply impacted by issues of bias, rejection and queer identity in the foster system – each of them ultimately connected by their desire for a chosen family where LGBTQ identities are accepted and celebrated. Children and families must be protected, not discriminated against in our system.

In the middle of a pandemic, it is more difficult than ever to network with others. Trust me — I'm a “connector” at heart, and the COVID-19 crisis has made it extremely challenging to navigate my web of personal and professional contacts. It has taken a psychological toll, and I'm not alone. Offices are closed. Cafes are empty. Happy hours are in the rearview mirror, except for on Zoom. While the internet has opened up a whole new world of communicating and connecting (which I'm grateful for), it is still incomparable to the value of face-to-face networking. Fostering interpersonal connections enables job seekers to find work, employees to thrive and small businesses to grow into something more. Without that networking, word-of-mouth marketing becomes harder and harder. And client referrals are one of the most important moneymakers for many small business owners. In my line of work, a recommendation is everything. Continue reading here. The article read in this episode originally appeared on the Forbes Agency Council CommunityVoice™ in December 2020.

Every now and then, siblings tend to have a little bit of healthy competition. However, what can YOU as a parent do when fights amongst siblings get out of control?

In this episode we have Janet Corrington, who is a counselor, neurofeedback brain trainer, step parent, foster parent, and adoptive parent and we're going to be talking about the difference between fostering and adopting. She tells us about foster parenting and how the government is often quite involved while you're taking care of kids. They have a say in how you parent these children in a certain way and it will remain that way until you actually adopt the child, in which case they become a part of your forever family. When working with the foster children, Janet and her spouse try to help them develop if they've skipped or didn't get the opportunity to develop a certain level of growth, such as helping them read, or if they struggle with peeing the bed they'll help them stop that habit so that when they move on to the next family, they'll go having learned a little more of how to function in the world. Janet's background and the good and bad of foster care 1:13Some of the things that were harder when she started fostering 16:04Talking with the kids and helping them develop 25:50The reward 34:04Having to deal with people's opinions 40:54Reach out to Janet 45:04“I think it's very difficult for everyone. By that I mean the work itself isn't difficult and having them live with you, it's not that kind of difficult that way. It's difficult in that it pulls at your heart strings and it hurts to feel like they're going to be gone, so you go through this grieving process and it's like you've lost a child when you've gone.” 19:firstname.lastname@example.orgJanet P.

#174: Do you ever catch yourself saying negative things about food at mealtime even when you don't realize you're doing it? Our babies and kids are watching and listening and our words are shaping their relationship with food even from their first bites. In this episode I'm interviewing dietitian and body positive coach Riley Peterson from @raisingbodypositive kids about how we can create a more food neutral household. Using this positive language and avoiding certain words about food can go a long way in helping to avoid the charged associations with foods that many children are exposed to very early in life. You CAN create a food neutral household in YOUR house and it can start as early as when your baby is beginning solid foods with baby-led weaning. If you're ready to raise an independent eater and prevent picky eating then let's get started learning about baby-led weaning together! Subscribe, rate and review the podcast here.
