Raising Resilient Kids  Guests: Matthew Swenson, MD, Psychiatrist; ; Maureen Healy, Emotional Coach, Author, “Growing Happy Kids,” Consultant for “My Mixed Emotions: Help Your Kids Handle Their Feelings” The rate of depression is on the rise among youth in America. More than a quarter of teens say they experience “extreme stress” during the school year, according to a survey by the American Psychological Association. That stress leads them to feel irritable, angry, nervous, anxious, overwhelmed, sad and – in some cases - even suicidal. How can parents help kids feel safe, confident and connected in a world full of fear and anxiety? The Fly Girls Who Made Aviation History Guest: Keith O’Brien, Author, “Fly Girls: How Five Daring Women Defied All Odds and Made Aviation History” When you think of the women who helped pioneer flight, you probably think of Amelia Earheart. But she was not the only female pilot in the early 1900s shattering records in the sky. A handful of others were just as famous – and some were even better pilots - Ruth Nichols, Louise Thaden, Ruth Elder. They were known as the “Fly Girls,” which is the title of journalist Keith O’Brien’s new book.
