Parenting Apart – Christina McGhee, divorce coach, interviewed by Sandy Fowler on Heart Filled Holidays Radio, July 6

We have some great tips for you today starting out with an idea for helping your kids, and you, get a better night's sleep. Then we're chatting about rainy day fun. It used to be that a rainy day made me want to curl up in bed with a book. Once you have kids, that option goes right out the window! The good news is that there are tons of things you can do together - and you'll all have fun.

After we cover all that, we're talking to Christina McGhee. Christina is a divorce coach and the author of the highly acclaimed book, Parenting Apart, How Separated and Divorced Parents Can Raise Happy and Secure Kids. Divorce is difficult for many reasons, the least of which is parenting. Christina will share some tips and advice for heading off issues and dealing with the ones that come up as you co-parent with your ex. She'll also tell us the first thing moms need to do to care for their kids, which might just surprise you.

And then we're headed over to Christmas Corner with our next DIY Christmas wreath project. This week we have 3 DIY ideas for creating Christmas wreaths with holly berries.

Entertaining is great fun but sometimes things don't go as planned. Today we have some hints and tips for sticky situations including quick tips for dealing with cake problems and ideas for getting guests to vacate your kitchen.

 

Next we'll chat with Joshua Becker, creator of becomingminimalist.com and author of Simplify and Clutter Free with Kids. About 6 years ago, Joshua and his family switched from a traditional middle class lifestyle to a minimalist lifestyle. It's something many of us think about but then we get stuck on things like, "Do I really have to get rid of my china?" or "How do I get my kids on board?" or "My spouse won't do it so I can't". Joshua will share the truth about minimalist living with a family along with a few tips for getting over the rough spots.

Then we'll wrap up in Christmas Corner with our next DIY Christmas wreath project. I'm not going to give you the details here but let's just say the wine lover in your life would love to get one of these. And, if you're not into wreaths, we have 2 other gift ideas for the wine lover on your list.

Join us at noon ET (11am CT, 10am MT, 9am PT) on www.radio.heartfilledholidays.com

Today kicks off with fun ideas for Father's Day gifts for Dad; a little something homemade from the kiddos (and one idea does include a tie). Then we're sharing a couple helpful hints to make your next outdoor meal a little less buggy.

In our interview, we're talking to Kimberly Kassner about learning. Kimberly has worked with a wide range of individuals, at-risk youth, struggling kids and drop outs as well as gifted students, honor students and CEOs, helping them find an easier way to learn. Kimberly has developed a learning system that plays to people's strengths, helping them master the academic game, and today we'll find out how that works.

Finally, we're wrapping things up in Christmas Corner with our next DIY Christmas wreath project - a candy cane wreath. And if you just love candy canes, then you'll be thrilled to hear about our other two candy cane inspired projects as well.

Smith, Fox Detroit, Dick Clark's TV special "America's Dream Makers," featured on San Francisco's evening news . . .) sharing her successes with top gifted students, drop-outs and everyone in between teaching them to master The Academic Game by playing to their strengths.
