What we forget as parents is that building friendship skills is like any other skill, we have to teach it and support it. Just like learning math, learning friendship skills is a crucial part of our kids' future. Audrey Monke joins us on the podcast today to talk about some of the many things she has learned about raising thriving kids from running…
 
Investor money and venture capital funding is pouring into Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. Enrollment in MA plans has more than doubled from 12 million members in 2011 to 26 million in 2021. What does this mean for us and our patients? Do these plans deliver better care for vulnerable older adults? Or are they a money making machine driving up healt…
 
Sports and masculinity have long been intertwined. For a long time, boys and men were the only ones who were allowed to play sports. Athletic fields and locker rooms were seen as places where boys became men. We’ve seen where that can lead. We’ve seen little boys & teenagers told to “man up!”, “rub some dirt on it” and play past the pain. We’ve hea…

Yes, it’s possible to have a kid and a life. A life beyond babies, boys, and ballgames. A life that includes your hopes, dreams, and passions. It’s normal (and healthy) for your career, marriage, and friendships to shift and evolve when you become a parent. But you don’t have to give your all to parenting. It’s okay (and healthy!) to reserve some t…
 
Three months ago we did a podcast with Randy Curits about his recent diagnosis of ALS in March and what it was like for someone who studies and cares for people living with serious illness, to now be someone who is living with serious illness. It was one of our favorite podcasts we’ve done, but also got us to think “wait, how come we’ve never done …
 
While we are all ready to "return to normal" parenting coach Cori Stern is finding that many of her clients have new problems with their children that were never there before. Even if their children returned to school smoothly this year, a few weeks in they started displaying a multitude of stress behaviors. Cori is with us on the podcast today to …
 
It’s GeriPal’s 200th episode. Yup, we started the podcast in 2016 and over the years we have grown from basically podcasting for Alex’s mom to now getting over 25,000 plays per month. So to celebrate our 200th, and given that the last two years kinda sucked in a lot of ways, we are going to pivot to appreciative inquiry. We have invited leaders in …
 
Which ON BOYS episodes were the Best of 2021? Photo by Olya Kobruseva from Pexels The answers may surprise you! 5. Highly Sensitive Boys with William Allen By age 5, William Allen understood very clearly that he was different. People told him to “man up” and that he “needed to be tougher.” Their words and reactions to his emotions told him, in no u…
 
ON BOYS listeners really want to know how to keep boys safe online. Which makes sense, given that the internet is a portal to all kinds of free and easily accessible porn — as well as conspiracy theories, disinformation, and peer pressure. In January 2021, we asked our friend Amy Lang to help us address this question, and she did not disappoint. Th…
 
Parents who grew up with strong authoritarian parents often swing too far the other way and go all in on attachment parenting. But all love all the time has its own problems, mainly a lack of healthy boundaries. There's a balance to be found and Erin Taylor is here to teach us how! Erin Taylor is a PCI Certified Parent Coach,® motivational speaker,…
 
The interesting thing about kids that don't follow the developmental schedule exactly, is that they are often only behind in some things and far ahead in others. It's time to celebrate the strengths and stress less about the delays. You might just find that your child learns to tie his shoes years later when he develops a passion for braiding! Toda…
 
Geriatric Oncology has arrived. Yes, Louise Walter has been leading the fight to improve cancer screening in older adults for years. But when it came to geriatricizing the way we assess and treat older adults with cancer, the evidence was thin. In our prior podcast with Supriya Mohile and William Dale on geriatric assessment in oncology, we couldn’…
 
How do we raise next gen men — men who can thrive in the 21st century? “When you’re on a playground, you can’t yell, ‘Hey, Tommy, cut that hegemonic masculinity out!'” says Jake Stika, co-founder of Next Gen Men, a Canadian organization dedicated to changing how the world sees, acts and thinks about masculinity. Parents, educators and boys need con…
 
When you're a new parent there's an abundance of guidance and advice and support, but what happens when you hit the confusing teenage years. How do you ask for help when the question you want to ask is: What do I do if my kid hates me? Susan Borison is here with humor and experience to shift perspectives on baffling teen behavior and guide parents …
 
Geriatric anesthesia is a thing. The average age of people getting surgery is increasing. Anesthesiologists and surgeons feel that with new techniques and approaches they can perform surgery on patients at ever older ages, patients who they previously would have excluded from surgery. One of the key advances in geriatric anesthesia is the use of sp…
 
We've been waiting to return to normal after the pandemic but even as things slowly shift back our kids are struggling with the adjustment. For many of them the pandemic had a much bigger effect on their life and their development because they are at such sensitive times. Erin Royer is on the podcast today to help us understand how the pandemic has…
 
Dr. Jon Lasser believes we all have a role to play in expanding boys’ opportunities. The Man Box and Boy Code still limit and shape boys’ behavior. And although there are plenty of books and TV shows that encourage girls to step past gendered boundaries, there are far fewer resources for boys and their parents. “As a feminist dad, I found a lot of …
 
As women we think a certain way and it can be difficult to understand where our boys are coming from. If you are a mother or a teacher listen to today's interview to get a better grasp on how to communicate with boys! Janet Allison is the Founder of Boys Alive! and the co-host of the popular ON BOYS Parenting Podcast. She is a speaker, author, educ…
 
What none of the parenting books tell us is that there is over forty years of research into what makes kids grow into resilient and happy people. Dr. Borba has crystalized it into seven key qualities that will give our kids the strength they need to thrive in the world. And the best part is, they are all teachable. They are not inborn, they are acc…
 
The great resignation is upon us. One in five health-care workers has left their job since the pandemic started. Geriatrics and palliative care are not immune to this, nor are we immune to the burnout that is associated with providers leaving their jobs. In today’s podcast, we talk with Janet Bull and Arif Kamal about what we can do to address burn…
 
Jack Kammer says boys are affected by sexism too. Boys and girls who engage in the same exact behavior may be treated very differently. And yet, when we fail to acknowledge that fact, we contribute to the gaslighting of our boys. Because the truth is that males and females both experience advantages AND disadvantages related to their sex and gender…
 
If your child is struggling with identity issues (and possibly LGBTQ+) you may be wondering what to do and say. How do you let them know that it's okay to come out and you are there for them? Or how do you find help and support if you aren't sure that it is okay? It is crucial that you get yourself to a mental space to support your children as they…
 
Did you know that boys may be more susceptible to respiratory viruses than girls? Society tells us that boys are strong and tough, but the truth is that males are biologically fragile — from before birth all the way through to death. Male fetuses are more likely to be miscarried than female fetuses, especially during stressful times. Men tend to ha…
 
We think if we don't push our kids that they won't grow up, but the reverse is true.

She notices all the ways that we overcomplicate our lives and especially our parenting and …
 
I don’t consider myself spiritual. For some in palliative care, this would be considered heresy as we are told “everyone is spiritual.” But, hey, I’m not. So there. However, despite not being spiritual, I do believe that spiritual care is fundamental to the care I give patients and families. I also recognize it is the one palliative care domain I a…
 
Though “breath” is in the title of Wes Ely’s book (and his song choice by the Police), relationships are its beating heart. The book operates on two levels. On one level, Wes Ely’s book is an autobiography of a critical care doctor’s horror and shame at discovering that his ICU practice of heavily sedating patients for days on end was leading to li…
 
Video game addiction Google that term and you’ll get 95 million results — and the first one is for an addiction treatment center. But is video game addiction really “a thing?” More importantly — what can parents do if they think their kid’s gaming is out of control? Step one, says Chris Ferguson, a psychology professor and co-author of Moral Combat…
