Have you ever wondered what your child is really going through when they throw a tantrum?

Parenting coach Rachel Kurian has been there. She’s seen it all -- both as a parent and as a professional teacher. This episode will give you insights into your child's mind, and challenge you to understand what triggers them or why they do certain things.

We also discuss the "neuro-typical child" vs. kids who experience trauma or who may be on the autism spectrum.

Joe Pellerito from the ReChoice Podcast joins us to discuss his story of finding - and leaving - Christianity. 

What led him to faith? What caused him to leave? How did he feel when he finally made that decision? How did his loved ones respond?

You're about to hear an honest discussion about what it means to be human and how we can live our lives without religion or dogma dictating the way we live. Why is there such an emphasis on shame in Christianity? Why does the Jesus in the Bible seem so different from the Jesus that Americans follow?

Ben and Jason sit down to recap the last couple of weeks, which were definitely loaded to the brim with challenges. Jason found out some crazy news about his family of origin -- and decided to start doing some research in order to settle rumors that were floating around. Meanwhile, Ben had a difficult week as a dad, but ultimately found a meaningful way to connect with his daughter. Listen as Jason challenges Ben about how much (or how little) he shares about his therapy sessions, something that led to an "off the mic" conversation after we stopped recording this episode.
