In August of 2018, I felt ready to communicate at a global level – and so I launched the Chatabout Children with Sonia Bestulic podcast; to empower people to grow with the children in their lives.
I share my expertise, and that of amazing people worldwide; from the Vice President of The LEGO Foundation in Denmark, to CrossFit HQ in the USA, and homegrown Australian experts and guests.
Providing education and training has always been a super passion. There is something so deeply rewarding when it comes to sharing with people the knowledge, the strategies, the tools and the skills, to be able to enhance their everyday, whether at home, school or in the workplace.
Countless times, I have witnessed the far-reaching benefits of helping one person… (it is never one person really; for often the new-found skills and knowledge also benefit those around them).
One of my life mantras is to add value. Every single episode has invaluable key learning and ‘golden nuggets’ of advice and information.
The information is trusted, evidence based, and value packed; with download numbers continuing to grow rapidly.
Super popular episodes include:
What would the education system look like, if it embodied the principles of learning through play? How does play nurture us to be creative problem solvers, and resilient innovative thinkers?
The Power of Play – this episode is just invaluable, with information discussed, an absolute necessity for parents/ carers and professionals who work with children. Joining me from Denmark – the Vice President of the LEGO Foundation, Dr Bo Stjerne Thomsen.
Why is anxiety so common among our children? What are the common causes and how does it present?
Childhood Anxiety – Dr Elizabeth Woodcock shares an insightful chat, sharing with us the best ways to respond to anxiety issues, and how a child can still live a fulfilled life despite an early diagnosis of anxiety.
Do you know of a child who just can’t sit still?
Or perhaps a child who is sensitive to noise/ sound?
Sensory Processing – being able to effectively process and regulate the information we receive through our senses, is a pre-requisite for effective daily living, including learning of course! Tune in to this insightful chat with the well known Occupational Therapist, Dave Jereb.
