Biz and Theresa discuss the power of the phrase “calm down.” Yes, we want our kids to calm down, but why does it trigger gross feelings from our own childhoods? Is it just the easiest thing to say when kids are too loud or too hyped or too upset? Yes. It is. Plus Biz gets a compliment, Theresa does do nights, and we talk to Debra Hauser with Advocates For Youth about the future of sex education and the new site Amaze.org.
You can find Debra on Twitter @dlhaus or on the Advocates for Youth website at Advocatesforyouth.org. You can watch the Amaze project videos at Amaze.orgor Youtube.com/Amazeorg and we cannot recommend them enough!
