Important conversations and encouraging words to help you make every day a great one. Bring Back Civility (00:00) We live in some of the greatest and most expansive civilizations the world has ever known. But when you turn on the news, it seems as though we may live in some of the darkest and most polarized times the world has ever known. According to Dr. Thomas Plante, civility is hard to come by. But, he says that if we can understand why civility is in decline, then maybe we can counteract it. Dr. Thomas Plante serves on the APA’s Council Leadership Team and is the chair of the APA working group on civility. He is a professor of psychology at Santa Clara University and at Stanford University. You can access his original article here. I Still Want to Be an Astronaut (19:18) James Perry of Studio C joins Lisa to discuss his book, “I Still Want to Be an Astronaut,” his creative process, and how to live your dream when you dream too much. You can purchase his book here. Women in Law (49:01) Women have been involved in our nation’s legal system since its earliest days. For a long time, women couldn’t be admitted to law schools or state bar associations. Today, they’re filling seats on some of the highest courts in the land. Recently, Brigham Young University’s law school admitted its first class with more women than men. Law student and future mother Kristin Wilde is currently in her first year at BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School. Her husband Baxter Wilde will attend law school next year. Mr. and Mrs. Wilde are with us today to talk about their experience and how they balance school with children on the way. Beyond the Map (1:04:58) Our planet’s past is made, largely, of people deciding to explore the unknown. But what about modern-day explorers? With Google Maps ready to display almost any place you ask for and the internet primed to tell you everything about the ones you can’t find, it may feel to many people like that expansive world of explorers and stories is gone. Author Alastair Bonnett doesn’t see things that way. His book Beyond the Map explores the hidden and forgotten places here in our modern world. Set up as thirty-nine individual essays, Beyond the Map brings to light places like a ghostly boys’ school in Wales, the world’s smallest country, and argued-over islands. In Beyond the Map, Alastair Bonnett proves that the unknown is all around us, and that space may not be the final frontier after all. Parenting and Your Child (1:22:49) As parents, we like to think we incorporate the best qualities our parents had and use them with our own children. But the fact of the matter is that often times, we also subconsciously channel our parent’s bad habits as well. Today we have parent coach, Laura Markham, Ph.D., with us to share how our own childhoods can affect our parenting. Dr. Laura Markham has worked as a parenting coach with countless families across the world. You can sign up for her website AhaParenting.Com to learn more.
