Balancing Parents and Grandparents (0:06:15) Becoming a grandparent is a special moment. It means you never have to be the bad cop again. You can shower your grandkids with gifts and sweets and let their parents take care of all the discipline. Right? Well maybe not. Because a lot of parents will see this as undermining their parenting. On the other side, as the adult parent it’s difficult to know how to establish parenting boundaries when grandma and grandpa help take care of your child. So here to discuss this parent-grandparent balance is therapist from the Baltimore Therapy Center , Raffi Bilek. Money Saving Challenges (0:25:10) One thing that could definitely use a lighter approach is saving money. Worrying about how much we’re saving can feel so burdensome and therefore discouraging. But what if we made light of it? Jen Smith, the money-saving guru and founder of personal finance blog Modern Frugality, has created a variety of money-saving challenges that keep things interesting and motivating, and she is here today to share them with us. IKEA Hacks (0:37:54) Whether you love them for their furniture or their delicious meatballs, IKEA has a special place in the hearts of many because of their basic, affordable furniture. However, there comes a point in which their pieces can feel a bit too basic for our liking. So how can you turn these simple into powerful statements for your room? That's right –today, we’re talking about customizing your IKEA furniture. Here to discuss with us all the best IKEA furniture hacks is Lotta Lundaas from Norse Interiors. Overcoming Social Anxiety (1:11:17) Do you constantly fear being scrutinized and judged in social situations? If so, you may suffer from social anxiety, which affects 15 million people in the US. Social anxiety can be hard to overcome and may involve an uncomfortable process, but with the right guidance and perseverance, it can be done. Here with us today to help us understand social anxiety and how to conquer it is psychologist, Dr. Kristin Bianchi. Halloween Parties (1:26:54) Just because we can’t celebrate Halloween in the same ways this year, doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate at all. In fact, this year calls for more reason to celebrate this fun holiday! However, COVID has changed the way we party with our friends and family. So how can we get together with them while staying safe and healthy? Well today, we’ve invited event expert and CEO of The Party Goddess, Marley Majcher, on the show to give us ideas on how we can throw COVID style Halloween parties.
