Ask Christians what they expect to happen to them after they die, and most will say they will go to heaven. And they’ll probably say that they will meet Jesus and hope to hear Him say, “Well done good and faithful servant.” But many believers know they are not living up to God’s calling on their lives. In fact, many might even admit their lives don’t honor God at all—at least Mondays through Saturdays.   In A Daring Faith in a Cowardly World, Ken Harrison masterfully uses his stories as a Los Angeles police officer in one of the deadliest areas of the country to explain and illustrate deep truths from God’s Word. This isn’t your typical inspirational book—it’s a hard-hitting work that packs a lot of truth into an easy-to-read page-turner. Each chapter starts and ends with a gripping story that has a twist, a “rest of the story” at the end of the chapter, and packs intense biblical truth and wisdom in the middle. Are you ready to take the first step towards a more courageous and bold life lived in Jesus? In A Daring Faith in a Cowardly World, find the motivation that you’ve been longing for. FROM THE PRODUCER Thanks for listening to Episode #176, Developing a Strong Faith in a Scary World, and for helping Dr. Meg’s parenting revolution reach more than SEVEN MILLION downloads!

From suspecting something was different with her son early on when he was a toddler, to researching on her own and approaching her son’s pediatrician with questions and concerns, to a formal diagnosis of autism, guest Jessica Daley has been on an unexpected journey that many parents may also find themselves facing. Jessica explains the importance of having a good pediatrician, as she shares, “Pediatricians hold the key and open the door for parents to get the resources and tools that are needed to support our children with autism, so having a pediatrician that you trust, that you feel supported by, who cares about you and your child, is vitally important to the autism journey.”  Jessica further describes her son’s individual needs, which have included speech therapy, occupational therapy and even physical therapy at times, as well as what she anticipates that life will be like going forward, as her son continues to grow throughout childhood and into adulthood. Listen in as Jessica and Dr. Meeker discuss the complexities (and victories!) of supporting a child with autism – shared from the engaging viewpoints of both a parent and a pediatrician.https://www.jessica-daley.comThanks for listening to Episode #175, Raising a Child with Autism, and for helping Dr. Meg’s parenting revolution reach more than SEVEN MILLION downloads!

DR. MEG MEEKER with guest JESSICA BUCHANANJessica Buchanan had just completed education advisory meetings in southern Somalia, and was in transit to a guest house where she would stay overnight before heading back home the next morning. She was in a convoy of three Land Cruisers – armed guards in the front, Jessica and her colleague in the middle with a driver and their security advisor, and armed guards in the back. After driving 10-15 minutes, they were cut off by another Land Cruiser, which smashed out all the windows and the windshield of their vehicle. Initially Jessica thought, ‘Wow, who drives like that?’ But then she heard the crack of the butt of an AK-47 on the car hood, and realized, ‘Oh boy, something bad is happening.’ Jessica Buchanan joins Dr. Meg in this “inspirational Life” episode of Parenting Great Kids, sharing details of her harrowing kidnapping experience, and ultimate rescue, which was widely reported in the news. Jessica faced and overcame impossible odds that not only changed and affected her life as an individual, but also as a parent to her children. FROM THE PRODUCERThanks for listening to Episode #174, Impossible Odds, and for helping Dr. Meg’s parenting revolution reach more than SEVEN MILLION downloads!

Clinical social worker, psychoanalyst and parent guidance expert Erica Komisar joins Dr. Meeker to discuss the alarming mental health crisis in America today. How have we come to the place where teenage boys walk into schools and shoot people? How did that evolve? What are the contributing factors to mental health issues in kids today?

DR. MEG WITH GUEST DAVID THOMAS (Part 1)Boys need to be coached in the hard work of building emotional muscles. For many boys, the muscles are simply weak or underdeveloped. But weak muscles can get stronger with work. Building emotional muscles is some of the most important, yet most neglected, work in a boy’s journey to manhood. Impacting his everyday life as a son, brother, student, athlete, and friend, these muscles will define who he will become as a husband, father, friend and coworker. Guest David Thomas shares in simple yet profound detail how boys can develop the 3 R’s (Recognize, Regulate & Repair) -- Much like a car’s dashboard, they can pay attention to emotional signals that come along, and how the proper response can keep them from facing further damage down the road. BREAK DR. MEG WITH GUEST DAVID THOMAS (Part 2)Helping boys find their way to the full experience of being human and being fully masculine is what guest David Thomas is aiming for in all his work.

DR. MEG WITH GUEST ALLIE MARIE SMITH (Part 1)The everyday pressures and struggles that girls and young women face, and the feeling of not measuring up, can be overwhelming. Your daughter may be left wondering: “Is this all there is? A constant striving for self-acceptance and human approval?

DR. MEG WITH GUEST RICHARD CAPRIOLA (Part 1)Many times, mental health and substance abuse go hand in hand. Guest Richard Capriola explains how parents are often surprised when they find out the extent of either (or both) diagnosis in their teen. They missed the warning signs because nobody told them what to look for. Richard wrote his book, “The Addicted Child: A Parent’s Guide to Adolescent Substance Abuse” in an effort to help parents know what warning signs to look for, which assessments may be needed, what the options are for treatment, and to hopefully make parents feel more confident and less afraid of the topic of adolescent substance abuse, should they need to confront it. In this episode, Richard discusses whether some personalities are more prone to addictive behavior in children as they get older, or if every child is at risk. He sheds light on the different warning signs parents need to be looking for, as well as how to effectively deal with their teen’s behavior during substance abuse treatment, without the fear of driving them away. BREAK DR. MEG WITH GUEST MAX LUCADO (Part 2)Richard Capriola and Dr. Meg continue their conversation about adolescent substance abuse, discussing which substances are most commonly being used among teens today, including a very alarming rise in vaping. Also discussed is how the COVID-19 pandemic affected adolescents – while the pandemic drove down adolescent substance abuse, it caused a dramatic increase in mental health issues among teenagers, including depression, anxiety and fear. Richard also talks about the effect of marijuana on teenagers, now that this substance has been legalized in many states. FROM THE PRODUCERThanks for listening to Episode #167, Adolescent Substance Abuse, and for helping Dr. Meg’s parenting revolution reach more than SEVEN MILLION downloads!

DR. MEG & ROLAND WARREN (Part 1)  Roland shares his own story, as a son of a teenage mom, raised with three other siblings in a home without a father present. Out of this upbringing, a passion was planted in his heart, in regards to the impact of the absence of a father in a home. An absence that not only affects the children, but also the single moms left to parent on their own.

Dr. Meg & Guest Erica Komisar (Part 1) Adolescence is typically a traumatic time, with hormonal shifts, puberty, shifting social scenes, identity formation - all contributing factors that can make kids vulnerable to anxiety and depression. And in today’s society, everything has been amp’d up, creating more stress in kids’ lives than ever before. Bombarded with increased academic pressure, social pressures, and expectations to be more adult-like earlier and earlier in their lives, adolescents are often dealing with anxieties that are above and beyond what they can emotionally handle. There is good news though! Parents can offer their children hope through being their emotional home-base. Guest Erica Komisar explains how adolescence actually stretches from age 9 – 25, giving parents another chance after early childhood to build the emotional foundation needed to become the secure home-base for their adolescent child. Dr. Meg & Guest Erica Komisar (Part 2) Guest Erica Komisar and Dr. Meg continue their candid conversation, shedding light on topics that parents may find themselves facing as they raise their adolescent children:·   How reacting strongly to your child’s expression of their individuality can cause them to become rebellious·   How to handle gender or sexual identity issues that your child may be experiencing·   The importance of remaining calm and non-judgmental through adolescent phases, which are often only temporary·   How ADHD and learning issues affect a child’s development, self esteem and mood·   Plus much more! FROM THE PRODUCER Thanks for listening to Episode 162, “Raising Resilient Adolescents in the New Age of Anxiety” and for helping Dr. Meg’s parenting revolution reach more than SIX MILLION downloads!

After losing his son, a grieving father goes on a mission to understand teen suicide. Jason Reid uncovers painful truths about the lives of teens, the impact of unfettered access to the internet and social media, and the shocking rise of depression among America’s youth. In examining his son’s technology use, he discovered what no parent wants to find. Seeking to uncover the warning signs that were missed, he instead found ways to reverse the isolation and disconnectedness that is killing our youth. Dr. Meg & Jason Reid (Part 1)Guest Jason Reid begins this episode by describing the days leading up to his 14 yr old son Ryan’s unexpected suicide. Looking back, he realizes that there were some warning signs, but he didn’t know how to read or respond to those signs at the time. Since Jason himself never struggled with depression, he didn’t know how to recognize it in his son’s life, and he didn’t talk to Ryan about mental health because it was never on his radar to do so – in his mind, depression and suicide were things that only happened to other people. Jason describes how he made the mistake of thinking that Ryan was “just another grumpy teenager” who wanted to be alone more and more, and retreat to his room. On a broader scope, Jason expresses how our culture needs to move from “creating awareness” of teen suicide to actually doing something to change the trajectory of it. He believes that we have the ability to end teen suicide by the year 2030, and answers the burning question, “How can that be done?” Dr. Meg & Jason Reid (Part 2)Jason Reid doesn’t want any other parent to have to endure what he and his wife went through in losing their son to suicide. With this in mind, he and Dr. Meg discuss the incredible need for parents to be aware of the mental health of their children. There is immense pressure on kids today, much more so than in years past, and their adolescent brains are not developed enough to know how to process the stresses and pressures that they are experiencing on a daily basis. Parents must not only be aware of their kids’ mental health, but every parent needs to be actively talking with their children about mental health, whether they suspect there may be any issues or not.

Women today typically deal with more stress than in past generations, and often struggle to find work/life balance. What is work/life balance? Is it a 50/50 split? How do mothers today juggle all that is required of them? Christy Wright, author of “Take Back Your Time: The Guilt-Free Guide to Life Balance”, provides tactical steps to create your own version of balance – where you get to decide what’s right for you! Dr. Meg & Guest Christy Wright (Part 1) Guest Christy Wright discusses the underlying narratives that mothers deal with on a regular basis, and provides a new definition of the word, balance. She poses the question, “What if balance isn’t something that you have to do, like a verb; what if it is something you can create in your life – to be able to feel a sense of balance in an out-of-balance world?” Another word for balance can be “peace” – You can be busy, and still be balanced, and at peace. You can be confident in your choices and decisions in how to spend your time. But how is this attained? Christy offers practical insights into what balance is, and provides 5 tactical steps to create your own version of balance in your life – you get to decide what’s right for you! Dr. Meg & Guest Christy Wright (Part 2) Dr. Meg and guest Christy Wright continue their engaging and informative conversation about balance, and how women can take back their time by creating their own balance that works for them. Fight the pressure of the culture that tries to tell you what a “good” mom is. Pinpoint what is stealing your time and energy. Decide what matters and then protect what matters by setting boundaries and saying no, when needed. It’s different for everyone. But the bottom line is: stop applying so much pressure on yourself. Find the balance that works for you, and begin to take back your time!

I hate to be Debbie Downer but this episode of super triggering for me. my husband and I both worked and struggled to pay the bills. how exactly do you expect a parent to work less when there is all of the financial responsibilities of the family on our shoulders and are you suggesting that both parents don't work or work less or are you suggesting that just moms stop focusing on their career? I hope this isn't coming across abrasive I have always been a working mom and have battled working mom guilt from the beginning. if episode makes me feel so sad I'm so disempowered

Sensible advice and really helpful but some guests are too centred on being Christian which can alienate Non-Christian listeners who also believe in bringing up good kids!
