We love seeing kids who are thriving and living their passions, which is exactly how we’d describe 10-year old Camilla “Pepper” Persley, a podcaster and journalist who specializes in professional sports (especially women’s basketball). You might have seen her recent profile in Sports Illustrated, as well as CBS NY, The New York Post… let’s just say the list of her accolades goes on and on.

So how cool that we get to chat with her, along with her father and “executive producer” (as she fondly calls him) Christopher Persley, on this very special Father’s Day episode. We chat about parenting our kids towards their passions, and how we can support them on that journey (Pepper has lots to say about that). Trust us when we say: this is a delightful interview that will leave you smiling, a little teary, and very inspired.

Listen right now, and then be sure to subscribe to our podcast on Apple Podcasts, so you never miss an episode. You can subscribe to Pepper’s podcast Dish With Pepper too.

Prisma: An innovative online school giving kids the flexibility, coaching and opportunities to be their best selves (sponsor)

Not every school has been able to adapt to all the changes in schooling over the past year — and certainly not every student. Which is why Prisma is such a helpful solution for so many kids.

This innovative online school for kids in grades 4-8 is an innovative alternative to traditional school. The flexible curriculum adapts to every child’s interests and learning speed, which means your student can learn what they’re curious about, all while getting the attention they deserve from Prisma’s teachers and expert coaches. It’s all about bringing out children’s natural curiosity and inclination to learn, and developing 21st-century skills like creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.Not standardized testing.
Prisma will even help you register as a homeschooling parent so you can get started.

Visit Prisma now through this link to learn more about their innovative online school for kids in grades 4 through 8 or schedule a call. Admissions for Fall 2021 are now live and filling fast.


TilePix is a Father's Day gift idea that keeps on giving, all year long | sponsored

If you caught our Instagram a few weeks ago, you might have seen the video of Kristen creating a hilarious graduation gift for her daughter, thanks to TilePix. They’ve created an incredibly smart solution for creating memory walls of art, thanks to their magnetic frames that make it a snap to change out your art, reposition it, rotate it, or move it around.

They make it so easy to personalize a memory wall, build a layout that’s as big or small as you’d like, or use their Splits feature to turn a single photo into a multi-pice gallery display. Very cool! And so pro. TilePix also make a great gift in time for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
