Lawn Service for Youth (00:00) Nothing says “summer” like a freshly-mown lawn. Lawn mowing may be one of the most hated chores for kids, but Rodney Smith Jr. of Alabama is turning it into a way to encourage youth to do service. He started the nonprofit organization “Raising Men Lawn Care Service” to encourage youth around the country, and the world, to give service by mowing lawns. He joins us today to share how he started mowing lawns for those in need. Addiction and Mom-Shaming (12:18) I think we can all agree that moms deserve the title of “superheroes”--but even superheroes have weaknesses, and moms are often judged extra hard for their failings. Mallory Neuberger is the executive director of The Frog Pad, a healing house for women recovering from drug and alcohol addictions, and she recently released her memoir, Sober House (My Story). She’s a mom who knows the pain of struggling with addiction, and she joins us to share her experience in overcoming it, and to share how we can provide help and support instead of shame for mothers with addictions. Risks and Rewards of Multi-Level Marketing (34:56) Have you ever gotten a message from a friend inviting you to “make more money” and “be our own boss”? Multi-level marketing might work out great for some, but for others, it can be a tough ride. Here to share discuss the pros and cons of multi-level marking companies is journalist Alden Wicker. Storytelling with The Appleseed (50:22) Storytelling in an ancient art, one we’re lucky is still being practiced today. To tell us more about the modern role of storytelling, we have Sam Payne joining us in-studio, storyteller, songwriter, and host of BYU Radio’s storytelling program The Apple Seed. Kids and Performance Psychology (1:04:27) Have you ever wondered how you could possibly get your child to sing on stage? Stage fright is very common in children… but that doesn’t mean your child will never be able to perform. Dr. Jon Skidmore is a performance psychology professor at BYU. He works with people of all ages helping them to overcome their performance fears. He has worked with many children over the years, helping them to overcome their performing fears. Leaving Pets in Cars (1:24:43) Did you know that on a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to 100 degrees in just minutes? Summer is just getting started and while it’s fun to take our loveable pets with us when we go out, we need to remember to never leave our animals locked in our cars. Rachel Bellis is the manager of local affairs for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. She’s with us this morning to tell us the dangers of leaving our pets in our cars and what to do when we see this.
