We often think of creativity as being a personality trait rather than a skill that we can foster in our children. Which is it, really? Rona and I discuss how we can foster the ability to innovate in our kids—and why we might want to do this. Aired: March 2013

I look forward to speaking to the staff at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Pinole, Ca. on May 8th. Doing a lunch time talk seems to be an important “wellness” approach for parents who are often too busy to read books or go to classes. If you would like me to come to your company for a lunch time talk, give me a call. And when you get home from work today, spend a few minutes connecting with your child before you start dinner.
Woke up today after attending a talk by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche (Tibetan Sound Healing) and sensed once again that it’s individual transformation that has to happen before we can transform our government. Once we the people become aware of our fear, anger, greed, and other emotions that cloud us, then we will have the space to open our hearts, and put our understanding into practice. Lets work for things like yoga, music, and art in the schools, social emotional focus in pre-school, healing for our veterans, workplace equity and wellness, and work towards policies like Bhutan’s focus on Gross National Happiness.
It’s that time of year, when many parents are looking at preschools and try to make what is for some a very difficult decision. Rona and I discuss different preschool philosophies, and how to choose what is right for your child. Aired: February 2013
