August 16: Surviving Adolescents
Elly Robinson … in conversation with Bill Kable

Adolescence is one of the most risky growth and developmental periods for our children. Like never before, we need parents, carers and other adults to have the skills, knowledge and strategies to provide this generation’s young people with the love, stability and routine that they need. 

Parenting teenagers of this generation requires a new skill set. 

Elly Robinson gives us the tips on how to survive – and thrive – with your adolescents. 

August 23: The Alpha Female’s Guide to Men & Marriage 
Suzanne Venker … in conversation with Bill Kable

America is in love with the alpha female. She’s the quintessential modern woman—assertive, razor sharp and fully in control. Her success in the marketplace is undeniable, a downright boon to society. But what happens when the alpha female gets married?

Since 1970, just as women became more and more powerful outside the home the divorce rate has quadrupled. And it is women who lead the charge. Today, 70% of divorce is initiated by wives.

Suzanne Venker gives women who are used to being in charge the tools they need to make their marriages less competitive and more complementary.

August 30: Father’s Day special - Dads and their Babies
Dr Dawson Cooke … in conversation with Bill Kable

New research findings from Curtin University not only dispel outdated thinking that babies are women’s business but indicate fathers are as important as mothers in developing a child’s attachment security. It’s all about being tuned in to the thoughts, feeling and intentions of family members.

“If you’re looking at the long-term impact of the child, the father is critical. It’s tragic we don’t recognise the importance of fathers more.”

Clinical Psychologist & Researcher, Dr Dawson Cooke, joins us in the studio to tell us about his latest research.
