Welcome to FASD Family Life the podcast for families by families where we get real about raising children and youth with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. I’m your host, Robbie Seale, FASD Educator, advocate and mom of four children with FASD. I know the struggle is real, but so is success. I hope that sharing my experiences can help you feel that you are not alone and that there is hope for you and your child with FASD.
Here we are, my friends, episode 41st of the FASD Family Life podcast. I am grateful to be spending this time with you again today wherever you are. Whether this is your first episode or your 41st, I invite you to grab a nice hot cup of coffee with me as we chat parent to parent.
Today we are doing to get REAL as I dive into the mail bag to answer one of the most common challenges faced by parents and careivers raising children and youth with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, some call it sass, attitude or back talk. We all hate the way our children speak to us and their siblings. Nothing we try seems to work! Leaving us worn down, discouraged and frustrated, but there is hope.
Settle in with your nice hot cup of coffee as I explain the brain based reasons for this common and frustrating behavioural symptom and give you some practical tips on how you can reduce frustration and improve family cohesion.

Bob Saget's Here For You
BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
