  • Total Episodes: 124

Welcome to Upbringing. We’re Hannah and Kelty – twins, mothers and works-in-progress. Upbringing is a movement that empowers parents to grow up alongside their kids for sanity and social change. Through this podcast, speaking and coaching, we focus on our personal work as parents- the awareness, mindset and approach needed to raise amazing kids while ALSO getting shit done. Join us to radically redefine kids’ resistance as a magical opportunity to nurture skills and values like consent, non-violent communication, emotional intelligence, body positivity, independence and beyond. We do this by practicing powers beyond control — respectful, evidence-based tools that protect our kids’ personal freedoms, support their skill-building and better align with how we roll as people. To us, this is the practice of parenting. When we can lean in and approach the hardest moments with our kids as an invitation to grow up ourselves, we all win. When we work to examine our triggers, face our fears and question our beliefs, we are bravely working against years of unconscious cultural conditioning. And when we work to rewrite those inherited legacies that don’t serve anyone… our kids are free, and so are we. We’re going to make mistakes as parents. LOTS of them. And that’s ok- because our growth depends on it. We are right here with you, taking steps to better understand ourselves, our kids, and one another – one conversation at a time. Because when we can choose trust over fear, connection over control and progress over perfection, we’re not just raising our kids, we’re raising ourselves. Let’s show up and grow up!

Dedicated to Making Science Accessible & Deep, Authentic Horse-Human Relationships More Possible Than Ever Before. EquiTheory is an Equestrian Podcast — produced by the host, Jill Treece — dedicated to making science accessible & deep, authentic horse-human relationships more possible than ever before. EquiTheory covers topics All Things Horse, Science-Based Progressive Training, Equine Behavior, Mental Health & more all in an effort to move the horse industry toward a better world for horses & their human counterparts. I want to challenge equestrians to try something new & different. I want to encourage them to take their journey with horses into their own hands & explore the why’s of training. Investigate how your individual horse learns best. Incorporate a liberated philosophy & practice around ethical based training. Research, learn, & understand so that you can control the unique relationship that only you & your horse share. The idea is not to demand that you train & experience horses identically to myself, but to instead provide you with alternative information & give you permission as an equestrian to decide for yourself what is best for your horse. My goal is to give you — as the reader, the rider, the horse-lover, the equestrian — the tools you need to ask questions, discover your own voice, & create a world for your horse where fear is no longer something you offer. Instead, you offer connection & empowerment. Tune in every week for new deep dives, stories, training advice & a new perspective! Spice up your drive to the barn, stall cleaning, or normal human things with a podcast all about improving your relationship with & understanding of your horse!
