I’m so grateful for this conversation with Afsaneh Moradian about her new children’s book, Jamie is Jamie, and about gender and gender stereotypes.

Podcast Episode #32 – When do parents need to step in and help?

Today we are back with Afsaneh Moradian to talk about when and how to let our kids work things out without jumping in to fix it or solve it. Much of parenting is about figuring out when to coach, when to intervene, when to be the mama bear and when to watch and have a conversation after. This is very much an art for any person spending time with these developing human beings.

Podcast Episode #31 – The Importance of Unstructured Playtime

This week we are beginning a new podcast series about the importance of unstructured playtime, with Afsaneh Moradian, author of the upcoming book Jamie is Jamie. Play means kids get to do whatever they want to do, inside or outside, using what is available to them. The main thing is that they are choosing what to do. It is not about an adult offering ideas and suggestions, but the child looks around to see what’s available and chooses what to do.
