College Students Home for Thanksgiving (0:00:00) Imagine this - after tearfully sending off your child to college just a few months before, the time has finally come for them to return home for Thanksgiving break. You’re so excited to see them again, but then you start to worry: what if they’ve changed? Are they going to be too busy with schoolwork to spend time with you? Do they think they’re too cool for you? These questions are real to many parents of college age students who are unsure of how to act around their adult-aged children. Luckily, we are joined by college professor Geoffrey Greif as he explains these complex relationships and how to make their visit back home for the holidays both wonderful and restorative. Winter Skincare (0:15:24) It’s hard to be cheery and positive when the skin on your face and hands is irritated and dry. For many of us, the winter months are our skin’s worst enemy! Here to share some hacks with us is Tami Cummins, a licensed aesthetician and skincare expert who has been keeping faces soft and healthy for over 25 years. Holiday Preparation (0:33:01) Friend of the show, Carrie Ann Rhodes, shares how to prepare for the upcoming holidays. Class Discipline (0:50:36) I don’t know if there’s a job out there that is more difficult and underappreciated than being a teacher. Teaching on its own is hard, but the job becomes that much more complicated when you consider how hard it can be to get kids to listen to you! So what can teachers do to maintain order in their classrooms? Here to share with us his ideas on the subject is Michael Linsin, teacher and author of five books including: The Smart Classroom Management Way. Best Preschool (1:06:04) You found it – the perfect preschool. After months of hunting, this is the one. You go and talk to the admissions secretary, and walk out discouraged. With all of the requirements, other moms pulling strings, and inside connections, it seems impossible to even let your child set foot in this perfect place for the start of their education. How can you possibly make sure your preschooler gets the best education available? Teru Clavel is a Global Education Consultant and author of the new book World Class: One Mother’s Journey Halfway Around the Globe in Search of the Best Education for Her Children. She joins us to share her tips. Satisfaction in the Mundane (1:25:51) Life can get boring and monotonous, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy every phase of life. Kirk Voss, a licensed family therapist, joins us to share ways to find satisfaction in the mundane.
