Disrupt The Everyday Podcast

Apr 5, 2021


On our first show we are joined by Barbara Coloroso as we discuss Parenting Through Crisis: Loss, Grief, Change and COVID-19. Barbara shares timeless advice to help navigate parenting during particularly challenging times. We also learn how Barbara became involved in the work she has been doing for over 40 years and what she has learned not only as a parent, but as a grandparent as well. Some of the topics of discussion are the TAO of parenting (Time, Affection & Optimism), the importance of Recreation, Relaxation and Rebillion, how to discuss important issues with your child and the Six Critical Life Messages.
