How to talk about death with your kids
When our children ask us difficult questions like "What happens when you die?" or "Am I going to die?", we often get stuck about what to do next. Should we talk about it? Should we avoid it? Should we offer a euphemism? We often assume kids are too young to talk about death, but here's something to consider: It's *never* too early to talk about things that are already on your child's mind. In this episode, Dr. Becky explains why we need to be honest with our kids about death, so they feel safe coming to us with all kinds of tricky questions throughout their lives. She shares practical scripts and strategies to guide you through difficult, but direct, conversations on death, dying, and grief. Remember: This is an emotional topic for us adults too, so before pressing play today, take a deep breath. Honor the feelings and sensations that come up for you as you listen to this episode.

Parental Burnout and a Reasonable Approach to Screens (with Dr. Meghan Owenz)
Janet’s guest is Dr. Meghan Owenz, a psychologist, professor, parent, and author. Meghan’s new book “Spoiled Right: Delaying Screens and Giving Children What They Really Need” offers the latest research on the effects of screens on young children along with a plethora of practical alternatives. Both Janet and Meghan acknowledge that during the last many months of homeschooling, severely limited socializing, and close quarters, exhausted parents have understandably relied on screens to get some much needed (and deserved) break-time. The question many weary parents ask is: “What do they do instead?” Meghan and Janet offer some answers.

Back to Baseline
