This week we take a look at some of the nutritional requirements of teens. We’ll look at what teens should be eating for healthy growth and some of the more obscure things to avoid as well. Then we’ll talk about the importance of the Family Dinner. The benefits go well beyond the nutritional intake and can help emotionally and intellectually and play a major role in a teen’s personal growth.

In our last segment we’ll talk about the benefits of getting teens into the kitchen and involved in cooking. It provides an opportunity for quality time, teaches self reliance and can build self confidence. We’ll also talk about some of the things that Madison likes to cook and show her in action making two different meals.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 59 “A Tribute to Dorian”

This week we take time out of a regular podcast schedule to pay tribute to a family member we lost. Last week our beloved cat Dorian encountered some medical issues. After a dire prognosis from the vet we made the difficult decision to put her down rather than to have her suffer. It was a difficult decision but one that was in her best interest.

This week we celebrate the life of Dorian by reminiscing about some of our fondest memories of her. How she adopted us shortly after we moved into the neighborhood. We’ll reflect on all the love and joy that she brought into our lives and some of the more colorful memories we have of her. It’s a podcast of remembrance and healing to help us get through our time of grief. We invite you all to share in our experiences and enjoy some of the wonderful stories we had about our wonderful member of the family.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 46 “Santa Claus”

This week we take a break from our more serious topics to celebrate the holidays and explore the nature and origins of Santa Claus. From a 3rd century monk named Saint Nicholas to the familiar depiction given to us by Thomas Nast to the classic portrayal in Clement C. Moore’s poem all the way up to the familiar department store Santa’s kids line up to talk to every year we look at Santa through the years. We also compare Christmas traditions from around the world and look for similarities that link them all together. Ultimately we address the burning questions of “Is Santa Claus real” and “Do you believe in Santa Claus”. We close with a very special creative presentation from all of our hosts for this joyous holiday.

Thank you to all of our viewers over these past 46 episodes. We’ll be taking a brief hiatus and will be back after the new year with more great podcasts. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!
