Our Editor's Take

Resilience and growth are essential for healthy, well-adjusted children. The Big Life Kids Podcast's goal is to focus on healthy child development and a growth mindset. The episodes discuss topics such as the adversity children will face. It teaches them to persevere by meeting life's challenges directly. It provides a level of positivity that children can absorb. This podcast teaches children about the world without toxic positivity. It's realistic and encourages positive behaviors, especially when unexpected challenges arise.

The podcast also focuses on other important life lessons. One episode of the podcast explored sibling rivalry. Serena and Venus Williams served as models. The episode illustrated how sibling rivalry does not need to produce negative emotions. It taught children how to embrace and process these feelings in a healthy way.

A primary focus of the podcast is the social and emotional health of children, but it is also educational. A primary focus of the podcast is the social and emotional health of children, but it is also educational. Examples of this are evident from early episodes. Some segments discuss how playing musical instruments can illustrate how people learn. The lessons in each segment are fun and engaging but always offer insight.

The hosts, Zara and Leo, travel to the far reaches of the earth to teach these lessons. The episodes are short, rarely exceeding 20 minutes. The podcast released episodes weekly from 2019 until 2022 when the last ever episode of the Big Life Kids Podcast aired. Though no new episodes are available, there is a lot in the archive to learn from.
