How to Have the Talk (0:00:00) When you think about telling your kids what the phrase “the birds and the bees”, really means does it make you nervous? For many of us, the idea of having a conversation about sexuality with our young children can seem awkward and discomforting. But talking about sex with our young kids shouldn't be something we dread: in fact, these talks can turn into some of the most beneficial conversations we’ll have with them as they grow up. Joining us on the show today is Kim Cook, a Certified Health Education Specialist and a former elementary school nurse. We invited her to discuss with us how to have positive talks with our children about their sexuality. Are 5 Meals Better Than 3? (0:19:32) For a while now, the fix for any stomach issue seemed to be switching from a diet of having breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to having five small meals a day. I feel like I saw articles cropping up everywhere about how this is the new secret to weight loss, bloating control, and happy tummies. But making five meals a day is a huge effort! I want to know if it’s actually all that it’s cracked up to be! With us today to answer this question is Malia Frey, a weight management specialist and fitness nutrition specialist. Emergency Preparedness (0:34:12) When it comes to emergency preparedness, some of you may have taken the “out of sight, out of mind” approach, but with all the pandemic going on in the world, you may be feeling like you weren’t really equipped to handle something like this in your home. You are not alone (as is evident in the hour-long lines at all the Costcos around the world). We want to help ease your mind and help you better prepare, so we have with us Gabe Turner, the director of content for Security Baron, to help us arm ourselves for natural disasters. Keeping Pets Happy (0:50:34) While quarantine is going on due to COVID-19, I’m sure many of us are starting to feel a little bit of that cabin fever. But the real question is: how are our pets doing? As pet owners, we want to make sure that our pets are healthy and happy but trying to stay inside as much as possible might make this more difficult. So, what can we do take care of our pets during quarantine? Here to share some tips with us is Johnna Deveraux, clinical pet nutritionist. Taking the Road Less Travelled – In a Bus (1:07:08) For a lot of us, taking a drive in the car has been our only escape from home the past couple of weeks. For Shelby Vertes and David Schmidt, their home is their refurbished bus, which they take all over the country to capture and share the beauty of North America. We thought that we all could use a little escape today, so we invited them on the show to tell us a little bit about their adventures. Weekend Review (1:22:50) Lisa and Richie talk about what there is to do this weekend while we’re all stuck at home, including movies released early and new shows streaming.
