Behold: “The Kid Whisperer Podcast!”

25 years ago, Pat Kiely and Scott Ervin met as poorly behaved children in school. Now they have a podcast about how people can deal with poorly behaved children in school.

This pod is for anyone who works with kids. In this video podcast, I answer live questions from parents and teachers about how to train kids to use positive behaviors that will allow them to be successful instead of training them to end up in prison.

I have no prior knowledge of the questions. This is a lively, funny, and I hope, helpful discussion that I think you might enjoy. Beware, like most of my conversations with Pat, there is some adult content in the podcast.

Perhaps, after 25 years of being bad influences on each other, Pat and I will help people and make them laugh, instead of annoying people with jokes that only we think are funny.

Gem City Podcast: April 1, 2020

Any time of crisis requires sacrifice, and the Coronavirus is no exception. The sacrifice is relatively simple at this point: stay at home. Sounds easy right? Not necessarily.

Parents are finding themselves suddenly working from home and teaching their kids at the same time. Not to mention teachers, who have had to completely switch to online learning with little to no time or resources to do so, who are often juggling their own kids in the process.

In this episode we  find strategies to help both parents and teachers navigate this weird new world during the Coronavirus crisis.


Amuzed Podcast: February 22, 2020

This special edition podcast was recorded in Chicago.

I was a guest on Amuzed: A Podcast for Geniuses, and this episode was a lot of fun!

However, unless you are OK with your kids hearing LOTS of adult language, don’t listen to this podcast with them! If YOU are easily offended, DON’T LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST!!

It’s titled “How to Parent,” but it has lots about teaching and education too:
