In the heartwarming picture book, THE SQUARE ROOT OF POSSIBLE: A Jingle Jangle Story, Journey is told by her mother that she and her grandfather, Jeronicus Jangle, are very much alike. They share the same gift and fervor for math, but when Journey meets him for the first time, she discovers the magic he had for equations and solving problems is gone. Eager to help, Journey is determined to solve this problem, because doing so will equal finding her grandfather’s joy. In the charming middle grade novel, JINGLE JANGLE: The Invention of Jeronicus Jangle, the grandfather-granddaughter pair make and sell whimsical toys together — until things start to go wrong. Christmas is endangered when Jeronicus’ trusted apprentice, Gustufson, steals a prized creation.

111: Parenting After Purity Culture
Over the summer, I posted a Twitter thread about recovering from purity culture. I wasn’t specifically addressing the parenting audience, but it easily applies and is very important to the parenting conversation. Just like how the sex talk should not be a one-time conversation with our kids, recovery requires ongoing conversations. So, for our last episode in this January series on sex, sexuality, and purity culture, I wanted to bring back the episode where I expanded upon that Twitter thread. There are so many prerequisites for recovery before a good, healthy sex talk can happen. These are the very issues I’m delving into today. If you were raised in purity culture or simply want to learn from the perspective of those who were, tune in. You’ll hear a thorough discussion on the fears and confusion from which those of us recovering from purity culture must be healed in order to be the best parents we can be. Show Highlights: * What boundaries are and how to develop and stick to them. * How to raise kids to know what they like and don’t like. * The importance of enjoying pleasure for its own sake. * The fear tactic of the slippery slope. * Discerning the difference between privacy and secrecy. * Moving beyond literal thinking into nuanced thinking.

32. If Hindsight Is 2020, Why Are We Still Not Saved?
In this episode, Kimberlé is joined by a panel of veteran UTB guests to unpack the learnings from a year of pandemic, political revolution, and purported racial reckoning. and to help envision a path forward as our nation reels in the aftermath of a white supremacist insurrection. As the panelists contextualize the events of January 6th through a critical race theory lens, they discuss how a national history of appeasing white supremacist interests and denial of racial terror have laid the groundwork for our present reality. Furthermore, they explore what the new Biden administration must consider in order to truly address white supremacist terror at its root. With:
