Before launching this next season of Upbringing, we’d like to share a handful of favorite podcast episodes we’ve been interviewed on recently. For the next few weeks, tune in as we connect with inspiring parenting communities about our radical mission to practice powers beyond control when it comes to daily discipline!
Find the Magic is a top-rated podcast hosted by three mothers who aspire to help cultivate meaningful family connections through unconditional love, respect and wholehearted awareness. They offer tips and strategies to create peace, authenticity and self-love in families, and we really enjoyed chatting with them about the beauty and necessity of kids’ resistance and how we can bravely work with- rather than against- it to empower the next generation.
We talk in broad terms about the beauty of growing up alongside our kids, our power + privilege as parents, and why getting aware of and supporting our kids’ personal freedoms is critical. We also expand on how we can sensitively support specific daily challenges like sibling conflict, toothbrushing resistance, spirited kids in public and chore resistance using the RESIST Approach. Fun stuff!
We hope you enjoy our conversation on Find The Magic as much as we did! Head on over to www.FindTheMagic.co to learn more, and check out this episode’s show notes to get more details on our conversation.

What is Upbringing?
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!
