Important conversations and encouraging words to help you make every day a great one. Family Movie Night (00:00) A new version of the story Little Women recently released to theaters. The book was written by Louisa May Alcott one hundred and fifty years ago and this retelling takes the classic story and gives it a contemporary twist. Our producer and popular culture analyst, Rod Gustafson, has reviewed thousands of movies from a parent's perspective. He's with us today to talk about Little Women and why this is more than just an entertaining movie. Cultivating a Creative Life (15:55) Living a creative life is an aspiration for many, and an intuitive process for others. What does it mean to live a creative life and how can we find it? Is it a matter of doing what we feel like in the moment, or carefully carving out time to work at it? With us today to help us explore what it means to live a creative life, is Carrie Ann Rhodes. Sibling Rivalry (49:28) Sibling abuse is more common than you’d think. Anywhere from 50 to 80 percent of kids experience sibling abuse, according to a study in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence. As a parent, you want each of your kids to feel safe and loved. But the line between sibling rivalry and sibling abuse can be hard to find. When does bickering become bullying? Or playful roughhousing become violence? To sort through these questions, we turn to professional counselor Raychelle Cassada Lohmann. Raychelle has worked in counseling for over 20 years. She’s also the author of several books geared towards youth. Polarization of a Nation (1:07:27) In 1780, John Adams was quoted saying that, “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” Unfortunately, it seems that as a country we have made the founding fathers’ greatest dread a reality. Many feel that as a nation we are more divided than we have ever been. We are joined now by Dr. Joseph Pierre, a clinical professor of Health Sciences at UCLA, to discuss it further. Fall Trends (1:25:33) Lisa and Michelle Lindsey discuss fashion, fall trends, and what to look for this season.
