Podcast #4: Independence

This week’s podcast features a discussion on the virtue of Independence and how parents can encourage independence of thought and action in children. Here’s the lineup:

  • Situation of the Week (Kelly): Handling conflict with a child/choosing battles
  • Topic: Independence (begins 5:30)
  • Q&A: What are some ways to deal with kids interrupting? (begins 19:06)

As always, please leave us some feedback in the comments, or email us at You can also listen to the podcast by clicking on it just below, or you can visit our podcast home at Podbean and download it directly onto your mp3 player by clicking on the options just below the post.

I’m happy that we have finally streamlined our production process (all thanks to Brendan!) and it’s taking much less time for us to edit the raw podcast files. And starting with our next recording session (beginning with Podcast #9, as the first 8 have already been recorded), our process will become easier and quicker because we’ll have access to a Mac laptop. Hoo. Ray.

Many of our listeners have requested that we produce the podcast in iTunes format, and that is definitely on our list of things to do! We’ll make an announcement as soon as we get to that. In the meantime, thanks for listening and thanks for your patience! :o

  1. Just found your blog, and have been catching up on your podcasts. You two are great! I really enjoyed this talk on independence.

    My fiance and I are looking to start a family in the next couple years, and we both agree with you.

    Keep it up!


We'd love to hear your thoughts, so let's hear 'em! We're exploring serious ideas here, and think that a good intellectual discussion is a great way to fine-tune one's thoughts. Especially welcome are concrete examples from YOUR life, questions, and thoughtful challenges.

Personal attacks, spam, etc. is not welcome and will probably be deleted, unless we choose to keep them for our own amusement.
