I didn't use to draw growing up because I was a figure ice skater in ice skated competitively since I was six up until I was like fifteen or something. Then my mom was like when you take drying class I'm so happy that she did in so glad that they would even suggest art school for me in high school actually she kinda almost forced me to take drawing class or against my will almost but she was just tried out if you don't like it, you don't have to go back you know but please give it a try like I. Think you might like it. In. So she drove me to like my first drawing class in. But then I like looked it like after the first session as this is rules is the best like this is what I wanna do for. I didn't actually start drawing until I was maybe seventeen or sixteen, seventeen or something. When did you first decide to move to the states? So my mom has a cousin who lives. In Chicago who you know she was like, Hey, like can she go live with you? Here. So my aunt was in angel and she took me in for a year in lived in Chicago, and you know that exposed me to a lot like it was kind of a huge cultural clash for me because I grew up. You know kind of sheltered in you know in my small community in new everybody there and it was just for a year but it I think it really shaped. My view. On things in. My world in. So after that I went back to Mexico and then I found you know started doing research once I started taking drawing classes in my my sister's best friend from childhood who's also my friend his name alone. So he was studying at CAL arts at the time in La in. California. So I met up with alone. So that summer.

My Dad was really worried when I applied to the school again because I think they also didn't really think that I would get when I re applied. Again, after two years of the first time I got rejected I did get in and I had such a good time and it was magical. So I mostly decided to move to the US because I just really wanted to go to the school in that was like the main reason in the drive for me to come here in because I loved animation and Film Industries here. But Oh, my family's still in Mexico is just me here. How did you land that first job after school? My first job. So it was actually during school because at Keller, it's A day per full day in its day in Wedge. A lot of people from the industry from the animation industry, go to the school look at our work. So there's like tables laid out in the main gallery in like students from first to fourth year plus like after you graduate, there's also space for them. We learned stressful. I knew so stressful it's Yeah. It's very like nerve wracking in like really exciting to because everyone's working towards that so. That year my mom was visiting 'cause she. She came up to visit me in and she was staying with me in I stayed up like I pulled an all nighter she stayed up with me the day before printing stuff out in laying out my portfolio decorating it. So we laid them out on these tables. In this was my third year and I went in the morning you lay them out at like a eight. Am you leave them there in the new leaf like you're not even present to show your work like you disappear, and then there's like this blackboard at the end of the hallway with you know the lists of every studio that's attending and you know like three hours later they write the names of the people they WanNa talk to. Based on like what they think about that work, I had never been called by Pixar or anything like I was not targeting Pixar at all because I'm like how like you know it just was not in my raider 'cause they were incredible. So as like whatever I just want an internship anywhere. Or A job. I went back to my house with my mom and we both kind of fell asleep for that time because we were so tired and then I got a call from a roommate who was at school and she was like, Oh, my God on a you have to get here right away like come here. Your name is under the picks list in I was like what no way I. Remember like jumping around with my mom. In we went to the school in like indeed, my name was on the list in the talk to Harley Jessup who production designed cocoa.

I graduated college I didn't have a job I applied to like fifteen jobs or so and didn't get any of them until eventually I got one in I worked there for a little bit but then they weren't. Willing to sponsor me because I know it's not easy for everybody. So I left because I'm like. Well, what am I doing here? You know it's not for the money as much as like I also really need. To get sponsored so I can stay in the country.

Before I had ever seen it. be a friend of mine. told me. It's the most Buddhist movie I've ever seen in. This is longtime ago when the movie was new. And I had to watch it two times to to get it. I think that was maybe even before I was a Buddhist or. had read anything or I don't know where my mind was when I first saw it. But It's one of those movies I can watch over and over again there are so many beautiful lessons in it and it's so funny and enjoyable it. It's a perfect pandemic movie. So if you I know I know I think now it's even on Netflix's I was looking for about a year ago. To let people know where they could find it and I couldn't find it anywhere on any kind of streaming media. Uh someone just sent a message Glenn Powers He sets my dad was an extra in groundhog day. That's great. So it's part of your family. Lower that's good. People talked about a bill. Murray would F- Baseball Games? For. The. People. And each state and he stayed in Woodstock, stock while the movie was being made. Just, this past year he did commercials in Woodstock that I just accidentally with a few other friends. We were having lunch on the square after. Right after temple on Saturday and. Bill. was shooting commercials so we got to watch him. And just kind of re live and they're the best they were I. Think they were given the best commercial. Honors for the. Super Bowl. You can see the jeep commercials. If you go on Youtube you can see they're just wonderful delightful commercials. So anyway, those little sight stories, but groundhog day is so similar to what we're living through. Now every we can wake up and we don't even know what day of the week it is. And it just keeps going. So I think that was that's what surprised all of us is. What a ride the suspend. An and it still is we don't see really any signs of things. Getting better right now. So if you watch that movie I, it will inspire you. Because, well, you'll see you'll get it when you watch it but That's we you know we all have bumps in the road of adjusting and dealing with a situation that throws us off balance but I'm hoping that most of you have found a reason. To wake up every day and have something interesting you WanNa do or something that you're that you're working on that you never had time to do before or you're getting little projects don you never had time to do before? that. You're taking zoom classes or you're reading or tuning into special classes on you to. We can use. Streaming media and things like. Youtube and things like. Facebook I'm recording this on facebook. We can use all of this stuff that. That before being I was I wanted to be off facebook I had no use for it. Before the pandemic and now I find that it's it's just a beautiful. Communication vehicle so. And I can I can do it. So it's very low tech so That's a good thing too. But. We can discover the good things about maybe technology that we that we didn't feel very good about before. We can. We can stay connected with people, which is now we really understand how important it is. And, we can find out about what's going on all over the world. And we don't have to stay We don't have to stay in the dark about what's really happening. We can investigate things and find out what's going on. So let this be your. Bill Murray Groundhog Day experience, and when you see the movie, If you haven't seen it, you must see it and when you do see at your your understand. and. I think it'll make every day a little bit more bright for you. So. There's so much. We can all be learning and we can be learning to understand just. Almost all of the Buddhist teachings. This is perfect. This is a perfect retreat for us a perfect workshop. And I know a lot of you don't feel like it's a retreat because you're still working and you're still having to deal with things that are scary and frightening and. You're worried about your kids and what we're going do about school and we're all worried about so many things but. I don't want to minimize any of that. But at the same time, this is a time for us to look look inside of us. Find the joy of helping other people find the joy of finding of really understanding. Some of the things that are important to us and the people who are important to us and understanding ourselves. So use it to be. Something that you can look back on and think. I I got a lot of good out of it
Oregon says federal agents to pull back from Portland
"A standoff between the Trump administration and local officials could be nearing an end. Governor Kate Brown announced today that the federal government will pull back law enforcement who have clashed violently with demonstrators there since early July. We'll hear from Governor Brown in another part of the program. The Department of Homeland Security, meanwhile, is presenting the deal a little differently. Oregon Public Broadcasting's Dirk Vander Hart joins me now from Portland. Welcome. Hey, thanks. So this agreement could help bring down tensions that have been mounting for weeks in your city. How is the governor even framing the deal at this moment? Yeah, She is really presenting this as a big win at this point. So for weeks, Governor Brown and other state officials have repeatedly demanded that the Trump Administration pullback federal officers But as you said, were sent here in early July, and under the deal announced today, Brown says At least some of those officers will begin to be phased out starting tomorrow in their place. She's sending Oregon State troopers who will act as security for this courthouse, which has really been a focal point of the protests. In her statement today, Brown said, the federal government essentially said the government has conceded to her demands. Okay, well, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has also been talking about this deal. Would you say that he agrees with Brown's characterization of it? Pretty pretty clearly not a wolf and other federal officials today have presented this as a win for their side, So their side is that they've been calling for local officials to protect the federal courthouse from vandalism or are small fires that some demonstrators have sent. And they suggest that you know those demands have been met because state troopers will be coming in to give that protection. But Wolf is also really downplaying this notion that federal officers are actually leaving the city like Brown says. Here's what he said in a press conference today. Our entire law enforcement presence that is currently in Portland yesterday in pre in the previous week, will remain importantly. Until we are assured that the courthouse And other federal facilities will no longer be attacked nightly. Instead of fire. There is obviously a little discord there in these two versions, and we're still looking for more details until what's behind them. I think what's likely impossible is that D H s officers will remain nearby may be in the area but will not actively be at the courthouse every night like they are now. We should note, though, that federal authorities who are normally assigned to protect the courthouse will still be present. Okay, so if the presence of federal officers does diminish how likely is that going to calm down the protesters? You think Well, I think state officials are certainly hoping it's very likely. These federal officers have drawn so much outrage. In recent weeks. People have been very, very focused on getting them out of the city. And so you know the senses. This should help calm things. I don't know that we can assume he's going to solve everything here. I mean, the question will be how state troopers actually respond to demonstrators gift things flare up again. Well, I mean, the country has been pretty focused on Portland recently, mainly because the president sent these federal law enforcement officials there in early July. But protests have been going on for a lot longer than that, for you know where you are. You just bring us up to speed on how things in Portland even got to this point. Well, that's right. Yeah, Actually, we are about two months into nightly protests for racial justice related to the killing of George Floyd. I mean, those have come in waves. So in late May, shortly after Floyd was killed, thousands of people were in the streets every night. That began toe Wayne by late June, when maybe around 100 people a night. We're coming out and clashing with police. But as I said, the federal presence here has really, really energized things. Dads and moms and vets air coming out. Today's deal is going to change things. I think we can say that we're just not exactly sure how

Income Share Agreements - Good For Students or Investors?
"Welcome money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works, how to invest it and how to live without worrying about it. We host David Stein today's episode three seven. It's titled Income Share Agreements. Good for students. Or. Investors. Over five years ago and upset forty-five of money for the rest of us. I introduced income share agreement as a way to partially fund college. An income share agreement is a contract where individuals agree to pay a certain percentage of their income for a set period of time in exchange for an upfront payment that is usually used to pay for education cost but can be used for other things. For example, a line income share funding says that you can get an essay for home repairs, debt consolidation, paying a medical bill or even planning your wedding. Not sure I would do it income share agreement for most of those things. They are traditionally us to invest in what is known as human capital, our ability to earn money by getting more. Education. Another name for income share agreements is human capital contracts. Income share agreements were first proposed by the economist Milton Freeman in a nineteen, fifty, five essay titled The Role of Government in education. He wrote vocational or professional education is a form of investment in human capital precisely analogous to investment in machinery buildings are forms, of non human capital. Its function is to raise economic productivity of the human being. If it does. So the individual is rewarded in a free enterprise society by receiving a higher return for his services than he would. Be Able to command. We discussed this concept summit upset to forty five is college worth it. And determined, there is a positive financial return in investing in human capital. By attending college, you can earn more, you build your social capital, your network you gain knowledge. Having a college degree allows you to pass filters that many companies put in place with their hiring practice in that, they only hire individuals with college degrees. Freeman continued. If a fixed money loan is made to finance investment in physical capital, the lender can get some security for his loan in the form of a mortgage or a residual claim to the physical asset itself, and he can count on realizing at least part of its investment in case of necessity by selling the physical asset. In other words, the lender has some collateral that could be sold in the case of default. But Freeman a problem if the loan is made to invest in human capital. He writes the lender clearly cannot get any comparable security in a non slave state the individual embodying the investment cannot be bought and sold. Freeman then pointed out that because there isn't collateral that the interest rate charged on student loan would have to be sufficiently high to compensate for the capital loss because there wouldn't be collateral and that the interest rate would have to be so high making the loans unattractive to borrowers. Now. A solution was found. Federal guaranteed student loans. The total US Student Loan Dad. Private and federal is one point six, four, trillion dollars. Only a hundred and twenty, four, billion of that one point six trillion is private. The average federal student loan debt balance is thirty, five, thousand dollars and the default rate is high. Eleven point one percent. It's particularly challenging for individuals that have taken on a lot of student loan debt to pay off. A Brookings Institution study from two thousand eighteen found that the median borrower who had less than fifty thousand dollars in student loan debt in the early two thousands paid off the debt within ten years. While the median borrower, they had more than fifty thousand dollars in student loan debt ten years later still owed about seventy, five percent and most of the students falling behind on their student loan debt are those that have a balanced greater than fifty thousand dollars. Friedman's proposed solution income share agreements. They weren't necessarily called that, but he said that. A contract could be structure where an investor would buy a share in an individual's earnings prospects. To advance him, the funds needed to finance his training on condition that he agreed to pay the lender a specified fraction of his future earnings. In this way Friedman wrote, a lender would get back more than his initial investment from relatively successful individuals which would compensate for the failure to recoup his original investment from the unsuccessful. There seems no legal obstacle to private contracts of this kind even though they are economically equivalent to the purchase of a share in an individual's earning capacity and thus to partial slavery. These. Agreements have been criticized perhaps not slavery, but certainly indentured servitude. Although Miguel Palacios yet us in his book investing in Human Capital felt that the analogy to slavery or indentured servitude was incorrect because the students retain the full freedom of action they're not forced to stay in a given job or even a work in the field in which they trained in. So they have the ability to to work anywhere they want.
New England Patriots star Patrick Chung on opting out of the 2020 NFL season
"NFL players have opted to skip the season because of the pandemic. For Patrick Chung. The move to stay home was difficult.

My son has a little asthma. My dad, you know, he's 75 years old, Chung tells CBS this morning. The NFL seems to be doing what it can to ensure Playerssafety.

Getting Ready for the 2020 Emmys
"The Television Academy has just unveiled the nominees for this year's edition of the Emmy Woods Nichols Fernando Augusta per checker and colossal rebelo went through the list and brought us the highlights. Let's have a listen. Pelada. Lovely to have you here. Let's talk about the AMI's but first of all, I mean, you have quite an experience with the amas right while I was very lucky last year while working out of our Los Angeles Bureau to attend the ceremony last for the seventy first. Edition of the Emmy Awards it is amazing. It really is a celebration of all things television not only of course, you're able to see the ceremony yourself and how it all unfolds that the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, you get to sit right next to some of your favorite stars as they celebrate you know a year worth of work you get to watch as some of them lose some of them when at last year was quite. Special because it was of course, the last year that game of thrones was nominated the end of the saga of game of thrones, which was, of course, a really big deal and one thing that I really liked about that was also how they marked the series that were coming to an end last year by bringing all the cast in the production team that was attending the ceremony on stage and kind of acknowledging any TV show that's on. Air for. A few years it is a bit sad one. You know the last time modern family was also the last. So it yeah, it is. It is quite an experience. I mean we are still a few months to go until this year's edition. Hopefully, we'll be able to have it in person by then by September the television academy still hasn't exactly unveiled the plans for that. But yeah, it just feels as much as it is A. Celebration of television it feels very different to watch it in person than on. TV. Sets and if he's going to be a special year because I mean we've been watching lots of television during lockdown effing and one of the things don't you grieve me. Colada that I like about the Emmys they are. You know what they are actually fairly diverse compared to the film awards and that just shows TV can be actually quite progressive away. Absolutely I think. The nominations this year as well. Reflects that diversity is well and yeah it does show how TV has been able to catch up with only momentum that has been happening in Hollywood about asking for change when it comes to diversity. But even if you look at the shows that are nominated or even just a shows that we're watching now they are reflection of different stories that are a reflection of different themes it's not as standard I would. Say, for example, with the Oscars and I think that's what makes it quite an interesting and exciting. Well, let's talk about some of the favorites I did like sheets Greek being nominated for comedy series of things surprise it started as a very little Canadian series but then apparently people saying that my win actually because the critics love it oh, it is a fantastic show I definitely has been one of the ones I've been watching this year and I was very happy to see it getting nominated for the outstanding Comedy Series Award another one on that category that it was really happy to see their it's the kaminsky methods. This is a Netflix show and yes, it is very lovely with Michael. Douglas starring in it and it is very funny as well and it was so nice to see you know it. They're in the category as well and I just I was very happy I. Think. As we were saying the nominations this year do justice to the TV. We've been watching I mean drama succession I know we're both big fans and you know Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong both be nominated for best actor in a drama series very well deserved extremely well deserved and it is, of course, we're talking here about a big categories. As if you go down the list, there are more awards being given to all the shows we've been mentioning. Not Awards, nominations I mean. But yes, I was very, very happy to see succession I think personally, it has been one of my favorite shows over the last few years I can't remember being dad excited about a show in succession was already nominated for Fiore's last year. I. Know that Nicholas Brutal do who composed the sound score for at won an emmy last year. For. For the score, he composed for succession that would be nice to see it how it's catching momentum and that fans quite disappointed that due to coronavirus sat filming restrictions. The third series did not come out this year as planned but this is a recognition of TV done very very well, there's been other recognitions for example, the morning show had quite a few nominations. And again, it was a show that it was not like loved the beginning by tics but I think people kind of were said, you know what actually was a good series especially the last episode of series. So another one I'm very happy also have very significant for apple as well as the morning show was you know the show that apple try to use as? To make its mark as someone that could compete with the network giants and streaming giants as well. So not only is a very good sign for the a seeing Jennifer Aniston Steve Carell nominated but also to see apple when they've been investing into the right series hiring great actors, great writers, Great Producers, and that it actually pays off and Collado. So what if Jimmy Kimmel? This time I mean, as you rightly said, we don't know how ceremony is going to be, but you know what bt awards they did try and they did like a special ceremony. Names might have to do that because it's happening on the twentieth September. That's very the as the television academy has said that the creative emmys, which you know the creative emmy is usually happen a few days before the Primetime Emmys and they've already said that those are happening on an online platform a few days before didn't haven't clarified yet for the AMI's themselves. We still don't know exactly what are the plans now? What is interesting about Jimmy, Kimmel here hosting I think it's his third time hosting is that he is nominated as well. His show Jimmy came alive is on the outstanding variety talk series, and there's always very endearing one. You know one of the host sometimes even people introducing the award end up being nominated. So yeah, I'd be curious to see exactly how that's going to pay out I don't know. was there any surprise nomination here on this list for you? Fernando as F- in the morning show was A bit of a surprise for me and also in the drama category I mean, we saw men hurriedly having quite a lot of nominations itself Jeremy Pope for his role in Hollywood for a best actor on limited series or movie because Lotte I think competition program should go again to Rupo's drag race. Oh Yeah. His love rapport figured they will he would win again just shows how you know when Ru Paul's drag race started. It was a very Niche not known at the public, and now they've been doing this for over a decade now, and there's just shows how you know there is an appetite for a show like that that it is mainstream, there's no way you can't say that anymore and is so empowering it is, of course, one of my personal favorites as well. It was really nice last year to be there when they won and to see Europol come on stage with a lot of the. Of the show as well and some of the judges when we look at that category I'm partial to and I would love to see them winning again on that category.
Phil - Growing up gay in South Africa
"It can tell from Phil now. He grew up in South Africa where he knew from a very early age that he was gay, and he got bullied for it from the age of eight I think I always knew from a young age, but for me it was different levels of awareness so when I was really young I found myself getting those butterflies in that shy feeling by looking at old is so you know when you see little schoolgirls and they all shy when they see their friends older brothers Zoll. Things like that! That's how I felt and it felt. Different to looking at my other male straight friends, who would get the same feelings for girls? So I had the awareness that they was a difference there I was getting that feeling by looking at guys, but they were getting that feeling looking at girls, and what's certain Cevennes near young mind that there was anything wrong with that, or did you just sort of acknowledging and and run with it I think as I got older Changed the way I. I thought because the majority of the people I was hanging around with were attracted to the opposite sex so I then thought okay. There must be something wrong with me because I didn't know anybody else. Who has in the same situation as me? Let's put this in a setting. Then how old were you? Where were you growing up? I think the awareness really started when I was four five and I grew up in South Africa. That's young, isn't it? Yeah, well I mean the thing is i. that's why I had different levels of awareness as about myself as I was growing up. So I mean yes, I had like kiss catch with girls, but then I had the feeling. Oh, I want to play catch with boys. You Know I. think that would be a little bit more exciting. And then I got a little bit older and. It was. Should I be having these feelings and I think you are actually the first person on the podcast from South Africa. Yes, so I don't really have much of a sense of what it's like growing up being gay part the Elliott Bay Community in South Africa what what was it like south? Africa I find is a little bit more. Conservative than here in the UK. And at that time it was quite homophobic. Very traditional men do this woman do this. That really affected me and I found it quite difficult. There were slows thrown about about being gay I can remember being a kid, and for those the listeners who have some experience in South Africa the word was more fee, which was fag basically and Offie Molefi. So. I was called that a lot I didn't even know what it meant. My mom tells me about the story. When I was young, I must've been eight or nine, and and I would go to my mom in our say mom, how do gay guys? And she said to me I know Philip. How do gay guys walk and I said I don't know, but the people at school are are teasing me because they say that I'm gay because I walk in a certain way and I didn't even have a label for it, but it was really really hard, even for my mom and Dad. They never really had any experience in lgbtq stuff and they've learned a lot through me. Yeah. It's a similar story with a lot of people are told to. Kind of like a lot of parents learn as they go on, which is why sometimes their first reaction isn't always the best one because they literally done what to say, they have gotten a reference point. They haven't met any other LGBT people until that child comes out. This is what it was like with my mom and dad because they grew up in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe. and. It was a lot more conservative than over in the UK, so they didn't have a reference. They didn't have any friends and relatives that were comfortable in coming out and saying who they really
"dads" Discussed on Hey B*tch!
"Daddy the wrong memo Gina Your Picture Your Papa. Oh innocent way innocence. Imagine your father in a photo frame in a hallway. And what do you think about him? Actually picture of my dad framed in my bedroom right next to your dad. Watches you fuck. That's weird. Whoa just kind of move out of your daddy's little blind when you're talking recently Everybody knows that are AP. Kobe Bryant lost two good one but after his passing it came out that he had a lot of stories of being proud girl dad and so people that had had exchanges with Kobe. Were recalling their memories of just how proud he was to be a girl dad and how he just wanted more and more and more girls and I I guess I took a lot of people by surprise because most dad's especially if you're an athlete they tend to want boys and they want to raise their athlete boys and so it was just really cool. The Kobe really loved having daughter and had four four dollars. Yeah and he wanted like time more so he was like you're all going into the WNBA. You're all going to be like me. You'RE GONNA kill it. No no one's about him no. He didn't even trip about like pushing basketball on any of his daughters. That's G G really loved it. It was like Oh yeah I get to pass on like the basketball knowledge to one of my daughters. Yeah at least so I guess that just reminded us of like our relationships with our own fathers because we all obviously have girl dads and how different it was like amongst all of us so Yeah Gina was talking a little bit about how? She has a picture of her dad in her bedroom. I don't think I have a picture of my dad. All my house have a very very different relationships with our fathers. But we'll get there. Yeah I'm I'm like the quintessential Daddy's girl I always will be will be like six years old and I'll be like did he can have cookie that he doesn't know you have an American action. That's the funny thing about my dad. So the reason why we're so close is because I never grew up with him. I've never lived with my dad The most time of sent with him consecutively was probably like six months and then he had to move away to another state so Being away from him made me like in my twenties. What I started making more money and like I can fly. Go See my dad and like when you're not like a little kid anymore I'm like Oh man I miss my dad relationship with him so it was always like. Hey how are you but the now When I started making money. I'm like okay. Dan Among visit us so now I spend Christmas with him Father's Day my birthday with him and then his birthday to and then So the fact that I'm so far away from all the time makes me more hyper aware of like all right. I need to spend more time and I have this rule that If my dad ever crosses my mind or even just a dad comes up in conversation domestic home right away until my Laurie. You know your phone and because it's professional because also like cute solely W-. We don't like message all day back and forth but if you look at our messages as I can love you. I love you too. Hey I love you all set reminder Sometimes he'll he'll do it. I don't think so we type in Vietnamese. It's really cute. Aw have a- to like a matching with Your Dad David. Ruin you little Marquez. Fucking hate you so much so a few years ago. I flew my dad and my dad's a huge niners Fan Nikki. Who's going to a super bowl? By the way by the time this episode comes out people will know. At least we made it longer. Fighting over the spoils Paul which is funny. Because half my family's the chiefs chiefs fans good so we're not having a super bowl party for the sake of the family and nobody would know which ones so a few years ago. I flew my dad into San Francisco with me and I got Colin Kaepernick's tattoo artists to do our matching tattoos so in Vietnamese. I have fallen in the back of my neck and my dad has child in his arm off. So father is back and child has gone con. And then I posted a picture of Bacon I can and then everyone. So we got matching tattoos and then Elegant Tattoo on my side. Also it's It's a song lyric on the he's saying to me when I was a kid and it's in. His handwriting is amazing calligraphy bread his favorite color. That shit hurt hurt hurt. So Sweet Hughes Daddy wonder if it is because like Yeah you didn't get to see each other a lot during childhood and stuff because I feel like I have such a better relationship with my dad now after not living with because when we lived together it was like war. We are too much alike and everyone would always be like. You're just like your dad which pissed me off because I thought he was insane and we would always butt heads and because he you know paid all the bills and he's the elder and you know he wasn't allowed to argue or like say my peace and you know like I need to say my piece if I have something to say. I'm pretty outspoken. So is he but because I was the child it was always like. Don't talk back. Shut up. Don't say anything and then if. I cried out of frustration because I couldn't say anything he'd be like no crying and he'd yell at me for crying and then it was just like I just hated living with him and we went like a whole year in my teenage years without even talking like we just passed each other in the kitchen and like not talk but then when I moved out I was twenty one when I moved out. I feel like his soft side came out like I finally got to see like what my mom had been talking about all those years because I was always like. What soft side is she talking about? She'd be He's such a baby in the inside and he loves you so much and he'd brag about he brags about you to his work in his office. He had a bunch of pictures of me like at work in his work. Like I never see those pictures. He never tells me those things but like when I moved out of the House started telling me those things more and I remember always feeling not good enough for him and feeling like out of me Because he's a really high standard and so therefore. I had a really high standard because I felt like I could never meet this impossible standard but then when I was twenty six so five years out of the House we were in New York for premiere of something that I was in and he raped before going on like the red carpet he was like. I'm really.
"dads" Discussed on Legacy-Dads Podcast
"Lust of the eyes is got to be nailed and crucified every day. Hey and that's where if you sit there and say this is the way I was raised. Okay but then the first part of fixing problems one acknowledging that you have a problem and so this is the way you were raised okay. There's a problem but now what are we gonNA do about it. Wanted Accountability get accountability. Don't you sit there and say hey. I didn't do this. Check didn't do that check. And then hey how about that. You know that football game the NFL team that we love. Let's go out and have ten beers and come back and repeat the same thing that you're trying to actually put to death. No have the real conversation yet and I think you know someone I I'm with the when it comes to culture and things like that and I'll tell you this guy's admitting admitting weakness is something that people struggle with and I'm I'm working overseas right now with the culture where the culture here is you do not admit weakness. This is just one of those things where it doesn't happen and so when we're going to a process with the the some of these guys and we ask them. Tell me what your I want to know. What what your weaknesses are? What are you not very good at and they very much struggle to tell us that? And and here's what I say to them. I said let me tell you what look at when when. Somebody's not self aware and honest enough to to tell me what the rig Mrs are. I think one of two things this one. You know what they are. But you're lying. You're lying to me and you're not willing to be honest about it or to you. Really don't no what your weaknesses are A meaning you're not self aware of what your weaknesses are to me. That's even scarier because you're much more dangerous you're like a a a loaded gun waiting to go off because you don't even know what's wrong with you so either way it's wrong so you really need to look at what is what are areas. What am I trigger points? What are the things that I'm not very good And get over this this you know whatever. It is the cultural or the way you're raised of of saying I can't admit faltering Tura candidate weakness because to me that's just a cop out and say it doesn't it's not a sign of maturity maturity as man immaturity is a Christian of. You can't admit commit your sins in your deficiencies in the places. You fall short so I think you know I'm just. I'm trying to tell you guys we need to get over this stuff and when you screw up call all it out call yourself out because to me. That's being a bigger man than the guy who tries to hide it or tries to you know Pushed under the rug and act like it didn't happen that makes sense don't they and Lance in your line of work and the buddies that you have you you know behind enemy lines or even you know working in combative situations situations you know in front or behind. Tell me that your enemies not going to manipulate your weakness absolutely so if you don't know those about yourself now your ally ability and and that's what I'm saying is as as guys as men as husbands as fathers if we don't know what our weaknesses are. We reliability reliability to our family were liability to our wives reliability early to God's Church so we need to be honest brutally honest and I think that goes back to the point Dante. Where hey if you're if you're not? You're not ready or you don't know what that is get around some brothers somewhat mature believers in Christ. Who can help you with some Canal County building show you what areas you may need to work on? Yeah yeah that great words and it makes me think about like it when we let the enemy in. There's both not only from a military standpoint here but from a spiritual warfare standpoint you know he's not omnipresent the devil doesn't he doesn't know your thoughts he doesn't he's not present. He's not omnipotent. He he's not God but in your habits in your in your sins in places you go were darkness prevails. The enemy is sitting there looking at the armor and figuring figuring Worthy Chink is and if it's a mental gap if it's a physical gap if it's a pride gap if it's a lust gap. Believe me you know whether it's an innocent affair or that has been setting you up or it's pornography or its luster. It's drugs or alcohol or it's pride or it's angers any of the above and you're not the deal with it trust me. The enemy is going to manipulate that in every way fast. And before you know it you know to be the proverbial rat snake make is going to be wrapped around you and never let go and with that. I think that's a good place to wrap this up so guys just want to say as always a hope this made sense you guys. I know listening to your story Dante. I put myself in that position so many times and there were times. I did the right thing. There were times I did the wrong thing and especially you know when when I was younger when I was a newer father when I was a new husband I tend to not go down that road repentance and I regret a lot of those times TMZ now so guys were going to screw up and when we do we can use it as a teachable moment to talk to our kids and and another thing chose to our wives to that we take this thing seriously take our roles spiritual leader series. We take the role as being a husband and father serious And so I think it's a good way for us to set example to our wives as well of of the seriousness of of being with God's word and living living our lives out in in holiness so as always guys we want to say we thank you so much for all your support. Sorry we have to get more podcasts. This time of year. It's been kind of crazy but We appreciate sport move by following. Join.
"dads" Discussed on Legacy-Dads Podcast
"Because welcome to Liga sedans my name is lance and overseas again. which is this game because listen you know I get I get guys on instagram and stuff? They're like hey we can do another podcast. What's going on the podcast? I'm like dude. I've been home six days in the last four months. So don't tell me about podcasts lance and I have a little bit of logistics to I mean you know when he's waking coming up and you know saving the world I'm sitting there you know drilling on my pillow and then when he finally gets his shut down you know I'm I'm getting up at the crack Don and driving to work so you know we're we're just crisscrossing the nighter. Yeah absolutely and by the way guys. If you're new to this legacy dad's weekly does IOS biblical manhood podcasts for men husbands and fathers at all stages of life where we promote and advocate proven biblical principles for leaving a lasting legacy so that was really a good segue Shiseido smooth. It's like it's like those advertisers as you know like People to try to throw advertisements into their podcast. Whatever like hey? This isn't really an advertisement like cats and advertisement. Whatever okay so I'm going to start off with some proverbs? So proverbs sixteen sixteen eighteen said pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. So with that Dante once you take it away wait and tell us what's going on now so this actually a couple of weeks ago. I think great so daunting our talking and He brought up. How a he had an epic failure as a father? which I think that only happened like one time in my entire time as a father? Let's let which is good Jannine. Your kids I'm right now. Just call that right where that's at now but so so guys we we tend to blow it. And if you're like me me losing my cool speaking some words that I probably shouldn't have those types. Things happens all the time so the the question is what do we do with that. And and I think Dante and I'm talking like generational stuff where maybe you were raised in a household. Where if mom or dad made a mistake they would never never apologized? They'd never admit it they would never model repentance or just kind of like hey whatever. I did what I did do that type of deal. But don't he's got a situation when that happened with With him that I think illustrates Y Y we need to model This to our kids and if if we do if we have one of these epic failures or we blow it or you know. Hey we're human were prone to sin. What do we do? What do we do as a teaching moment to model for kids? Ads just repentance grace and forgiveness and things like that so daunting that once you once you tell us a little bit about the story here how this how this went down so you know you got two teenagers a foreign exchange student and a seventh grader in your house so fifteen fourteen and twelve and mom and dad are working hard. You know Making our faith real to them so that you know when they are up and out of this House that they own their own faith relationship Christ but just basically follow through and you know obedience with a right heart not just checking the box kind of obedience not just checking the box. Fox's far as doing what you're told but just having a right heart behind it fast forward. I should say rewind the clock about four Sundays. Yes I said a Sunday. AH AFTER CHURCH AND We found out that our foreign exchange student had another plan Did know about the logistics everything else we got going on so we got that worked out so I decided to walk to the car when my wife and the other teenagers are waiting for The exchange student he picked up and so as I'm walking with my little one you know. No Dad is already kind of in a questionable mode. We won't get into that. You know right now maybe another podcast but Basically just said hey really appreciate you. Walking on the car are with me to my twelve year old. You know. We're picking up all everybody else wanting to just hop in the back and you know Dads moms you start getting that and and finally I just looked in. I said in a patient but stern one of these days. You're gonNA realize in your walk what it means to be humble and what it means is to be submissive and obedient and enough. Get in the car. Get Your Take Dat kid. Drop the MIC strike one on so dad's already on like Defcon for deaf guy. You had me at putting four kids in the car with me at the same time. So so we wrap around the main circle for the parking lot and then the teenagers get in as I'm still waiting for my wife to hand off Keighley's change your exchange student and then the boy you know like most boys that are fifteen they get this. You know they. They're they're having fun with the Jab any other teasing Ya and I and my daughter my my fourteen year old. You know she's like Hey. Did you eat my Mexican food. That was in the frigerator Blah Blah. And of course he's just having fun with it and end she. Bridges proceeded to just start getting nasty so dad legacy Dad Dante says hey just be nice nice in your language and proceeds and then it continues to just get escalated and I said enough strike to strike three the older one. Who's on the phone and all this other stuff? INSTAGRAM is involved in this kind of legacy instagram. where it gets passed down from upperclassmen upperclassmen graduate to the next guy and it was this fun? You know ha ha names of students dress and finally in just you know innocent as it will be but I guess over generation of hand off to hand off somewhere along the line it got to be a little bit of bullying got it a little bit too critical to mean and my wife and I received this guy from the administration about hey. Ns You look you know. It's not hard to tell who the members are. You can on Instagram of this particular closed website and my boy decide to try the old citizen. I have rights. No you don't have rights. This isn't a democracy This is a private school that you go to. And your name is on that blotter. And they Should so decide to expel you for acting in you know composing yourself in a way that is unworthy of the Gospel. That's on you and and I always told him about the rule of law and those who have the pen or mighty while AS Roma judge me. You can't judge me. Yeah exactly as I'm scrolling while I'm looking through this instagram account. Others is one meam in there that has like I kid you not. It was is almost like a program script to my memory but it just said effing and that is strike three four five and Mount Vesuvius. uh-huh Dante proceeded to just say as my son is driving home because he's a student driver now he destroyed like for he. Yeah he Dante that is just let out the are you F ing serious enough of this crap crap you know and I proceeded then if that wasn't worse enough to my kids her that language but I threw my phone in frustration that I let the f-bomb fom go and in the process of letting my phone get thrown in my wife's car it Perfectly ricocheted off of the Dashboard Josh Board and into her window and cracked the entire driver's windshield so that sounds great This is a great date. Great Oh yeah at this point lance. You know I'm sitting there and now I'm humiliated angry. I'm embarrassed I'm frustrated and I looked at the boy who's fifteen and said pull the car over right now. I decided to say that it's better for me to walk two miles home cool off so I don't do anything. Say Anything or act in any other way that is not okay slammed slam the door start walking and the wife jumps out as I did not know but I left to crying girls a boy. That's in the driver seat looking like he just ran into a nuclear bomb and my wife in all of this chaos left with the chaos superseded to brilliantly say stop. Don't walk away from the family. I know you're angry to settle down. Get back in the car and let's try to patch this thing back together so it was the quietest ride home after strike. Four you know the tablets and the phones were turned in Blah Blah Blah. But you know it was one of those ones. Where if I gave a the devil a foothold to the Family Lance? I didn't know at that point. Were to turn from their as pretty interesting. Yeah so as my wife you know. Try to draw the better in me. I proceeded to realize that I could not walk away or or shirk. Responsibility is dead. I could not let my actions not beat my words and I needed to correct rex. Something that was broken and so I- proceeded to grab a legal notepad out of a cupboard. We storage I wrote down on their ways. As in which data ethically failed as a parent and proceeded to leave a litany of places that they could give suggestions at which I prayed and for dessert discernment and Wisdom. My wife at this point didn't know where I was going with three children my wife and I around the dinner table and I proceeded to to ask the three of which one would not look at me. The other one did not know if this was another test to fail and the young one who is not afraid of most most things. I wasn't sure how to proceed either and I think what happened was proverbs. Twenty eight thirteen popped in your in your head and it says whoever conceals history and Gresh transgressions will not prosper but he who confesses in forsakes them will obtain Mercy Dante boom. I know what I need to do. Yeah may maybe maybe even said that to me some James Five sixteen therefore confess your sins to pray for one another may be healed. The prayer of a righteous which is person has great power as working. That's a big one that's one that resonates in faith and that was honestly in my mind in one thousand nine hundred. Twenty twenty is the same way my brother anyone among you wanders from within someone brings you back let them know that whoever brings back a senator from his wandering. We'll save a soul from armed cover a multitude of sin. So here I am and I said a quick. You know humble prayer Lord please forgive me I sinned against you your kingdom and just the epic Louis messed up the family here and I don't want to give a devil a win you know in the in the W column family came down and they're looking at me not really sure is this a trap is test is set up for future failure You know the little one finally decided to say well you use the F.. If word and so then I wrote down dad used the F word and then she realized no. It wasn't a trap and she said you you got angry at all of us in you. Let go words in your anger. Dad Got Angry and did not check kid. Court threw honor honor and I felt like at that point was saying mercy mercy and then you know it was through your phone then and you cracked your mom's Windshield and then you did this. And that this point I even the one that did not WanNa look me. 'cause I really you you know her feelings. You know my boy. It was one of those ones where it was a holy spirit moment lance and you know. Here's something that I ethically fail. That epilepsy messed up. Yup totally disappointed. God My wife is family and I was just set to just cut tail and run and just escaped this problem..

"No thanks. People want to get to know you bowling. Would you like to bowl on father's day I would have with the girls while ago? They probably would be less Not not too hot on. No right water park waterpark. Yeah that would be all right. I wouldn't mind that CARSO car show now not not my scene definitely not there so outdoor adventure outdoor adventure absolutely movies movies good yes. I'm in Golf Golf Driving Range we've done and that's a good one then putting on a show for us now I There's no way I would ever get them to do that now. But years ago there was a show going on all the time a picnic picnic sweet absolutely. I would be up for that. Camping camping always good. But generally I would need to know about that advanced and I'm sorry to surprise me on that one. You Know Video Games Video Games. And that's that's two every day Barbecue barbecue generally all doing the barbecue. So that's that's always a good thing. Take Dadullah Baseball game. If if they're in town that wouldn't be bad. So when my net at all Glen would you like breakfast in bed on Father's Day on that it would be all right but usually it's They just delivered Lee and for that lucky ten percent of the US population going to the beach or possibly. Yes always a good thing. Yeah so there you go. There's some great tits activities do unpublished fantastic so one thing occurred to me as we were preparing for. This show is if you think about it every year. There's like a journey in the sense that you know our kids get older. We get older life. Changes circumstances changes. I was asked you and I thought about it myself. What is the kind of the one big lesson or something? You've learned that you've learned in the last twelve months You know that you could impart to the fellow. Dad's the legions of dad listeners. Out there and I'll go first greg. You know one of the things I glen. Could you go? I think I'm GonNa go first absolutely but one of the things that's kind of an interesting thing is the I think you have to modify the playbook and what I mean by that is that what may have worked in a parenting standpoint. How you related to the kids in a even a year or two years ago in you're GONNA have to change up your Your being in the way because they what they listen to how they listen how they respond to your jokes three years ago. Where funny when they were three years younger but no longer are funny so I I hate to say IT I. We all have to evolve. They evolve and I think parenting needs to evolve. So I I you know I do some of the same things that I've done through years jokes or teasing them and they they are not well received. So I've gotta mix it up a little more and then part of that is actually listening more to them and in terms of You Know Mickey Charm Responding In what they're looking for as opposed to just Responding normally so I guess I'm saying is adapt or die is a good parenting technique. That I think I've I've I haven't necessarily applied it but I've learned that That it's something I need to do. Well if you think about professional athletes or your career also professional father exactly what you got to think about your game and your skill set and your toolkit and evolve. It's like changing the golf swing. Absolutely you know tiger reconfigured exactly exactly wing PUMPAD. Two people have to chain absolutely greg. How about you what What is the one thing you learned in the last twelve months when as a dad I think with sixth an eight year old I think You know as as sort of open up to the world and start experiencing the world more I think you have to expect to work harder to connect with them and so before I think you know there are a little smaller inward focused. And you're a little more at the center of everything as parents and then now they're getting cold in a number of different directions and you're you come home. You have dinner. They're going to bed. It's like it's all becoming very fast and a blur so you have to sort of think about. Where can I connect? It doesn't happen as naturally and so you have to start to evolve some common interests things you do together and so we've been doing a great series of books right. We did. Pinocchio Peter Pan now are in Charlie and the chocolate background which is amazing at this age. Six eight a highly recommended. Every chapter is like a cliffhanger that they're screaming for Oh really and then Maybe it's a project together. We're going to put a ZIP line over the swimming pool in the next few weeks. Maybe it's watching sports or playing sports but something that you can do together that they're excited about because it just doesn't happen quite as fast or is sufficiently or as naturally without a little strategic jury around it. It's interesting 'cause you're actually right. You're the center and your wife or the center of their universe in a way but again it and then you're right. There's other things they start to see and you become a supporting character in it yet. Now there is something during the day in school or something after school and so their schedules are starting to fill up. So yes we're GONNA have to figure out where you're going to bond with them now. I think that's really That's that's excellent advice and It's definitely something we have to. You can't be complacent and keep learning and and go from there so that's great. Thank you for sharing your one idea Do you have any other father's Day Folklore you'd care to share all? I thought I'd close us out with some Quotes from some comedians about father. I thought I'd read some of these. And then you give me a quick review impression. Maybe it's what is the fundamental truth behind? This is it funny. Does it resonate any of your opinions are bringing on? Are you ready to climb ready? Craig David Tell David L. I don't know who David Attila a very famous standup comedian. Because when you're young you think your dad is Superman. Then you grew up and you realize he's just a regular guy who wears a cape very profound very profound but at least he. He's you know I don't know what else to say. How very profound I think that's right. Yes Okay Rita redner you ever good all right I gave my father one hundred dollars and said by yourself something that will make your life easier so he went out and bought a gift for my mom. That's that is really the essence of of the whole relationship dynamic at the good answer all right the next one number three no drum rolls here Bob Auden Kirk. I think he's the Guy I know who he is from breaking bad. Yeah Yeah Okay. The actor My daughter got me a world's Dad Mug so we know she sarcastic very profound profound and that self deprecating humor always works well with the kids so you know what I mean so that was good craig any other service to more tomorrow from Rodney. Dangerfield have heard of Rodney Dangerfield. He said me and my dad used to play tag. He'd drive. I get no respect. That's right all right. And the last we're going to close out with an American icon Mark Twain Mark Twain Roaf. When I was a boy of fourteen my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around but when I got to be twenty one. I was astonished at how much the old men had learned in seven years. Oh yes that's a very good. I like that very early days of just not right right thinking within as you get older in your twenties you start coming back around and you think that was one hundred some years ago and yet it rings knows interviews stated this thing. I always tell people if they're having problems with their teenager. Wait until they're twenty three legged. Usually they come back and they're more sensible but yeah we're still. It's still not there yet. That's for future episodes but That's great I think we've got it covered. Craig thanks for England. You know. Don't just feedback Glen. You'RE A model here I've watched. I've learned You really go all in your all in. I don't WanNa be as much of a father as you are but I am learning and taking no no and you've got Yeah I don't want to give it back to you because you don't like that but Otherwise but We got to thank all of Dad's I mean it's a tough job and It's the best job you'll ever have all of that you know that but ultimately off just a good time to take the point to recognize that it's the best job you'll ever have and And do your best at it and it's easy to get complacent it's easy to get distracted and easy to think about yourself but you know helping those girls evolve and grow and nurture them so they can be stand on their own. Two feet is is really. You know the gift we give to the world and the gift we give is when things are hard at difficult or you have a question Someone you need to talk to you come to the DADS outnumbered podcast. And that's not enough. Make sure you tell a friend a family member. There's lots of DADS out there who were DADS of daughters. They might want something humorous to listen to on the drive home on their run so spread the word and help us Raise better dot there you go. You are not alone everyone.

"Always try to have a little dip in the afternoon. It doesn't always happen but our kids don't necessarily nap. They might take a nap once every three months or four months when this out of control but I think we put them on stories like a sparkle story with a subscription stories and they have to lay down and listen to a story or two usually twenty to forty five minutes of just a little more. Chill time it's We call it rest time but I don't think they actually fall asleep. Did Dad get any naps during the trip I don't think so good. What's the mother-in-law good for if we done that's right? Get a nap in the last thing I learned is really. Planes are a miserable place as not just the bathrooms on the planes but planes can be miserable for long periods of time so my wife always has sort of a more rigidity on what she wants the kids to do on an airplane. They need to do activities and coloring and then they need to do this and she tries to keep them on sort of their normal life schedule where I say. If you're on a plane you can let the rules. Sorta falls to the wayside because the plane is miserable enough. We don't have to try to add onto that so we let the kids watch implied entertainment on united and others So the kids got to watch a lot of shows a lot of TV and so they're in heaven and they're quiet and they're not bothering you so it's actually a chance for you to sleep or read or watch something as well so I say. Planes are miserable enough. Why make them more so it? Did you send drinks back from first-class while you're sitting little joke there buddy? I'm glad he had a great time. You know Real quick on while I didn't go to Europe my middle daughter. Who's going to be a senior in high school went on a school trip For eleven days and so. It's interesting where you're hearing your experience but you know it's one of those things where it was ten students and two teachers and she went to Ireland Wales England and France and had a great time and it was really neat. Because that's the way the longest she'd been away from home and so on one hand it was like we wonder house you'll do and she also likes her downtime and so to be on stage you know twenty four seven for eleven straight days. We were worried if that was going to take it sold. But she had a great time at at She made a bonded made some relationships. The said the weather was in Ireland. It rained the whole time. But she said it was really fabulous. So how you do. I know your oldest daughter is been out and about and but now you're getting down into the other daughters and so How did you feel about her? Leaving the country without being close enough to you guys like. Was it a a form of stress each day? Do Motion notionally. You know it is interesting and you gotta give credit to the oldest child in the family Because they are you know they really are the trailblazer so my oldest daughter went when she was going between tenth eleventh grade. She went to Switzerland with girl scout troop several years ago. And that was tough. I just because when you worry but as the more it's happens these year it gets in and So it was more wasn't that you know you Mr in the house but again as time goes on you start to get easier. My oldest also spent a summer in France last summer. So you get kind of used to them or comfortable with them being gone for long stretches of time but you know this is one that she hadn't gone before You know by herself and so But it worked out great and So we're really happy for you. Don't need to get him back from. It's great to get back. We we went to the airport at eleven o'clock on Monday. We had signs A welcome back signs. It was a lot of fun so nice. Well you know this is our fathers day episode. This is our fathers day into exactly. This banter lasted at like twelve on cable banter. Wait while you had stories to tell advisors share so Spending all these time in In Europe you know how it is so but now with. What's the plan for Father's Day this year? Do you have any idea of what you will be doing this? Father's Day Craig. Yes I had this fundamental shift. You know two years ago when my parents moved to Phoenix yes fathers. They used to be all right a car. You make a phone call. Send a gift and out the whole ton right and then everything could be about me and you know that's where I start from so Yeah I'm not struggling with but there is a another hierarchy my father to consider and have to make sure he's having say oh. You're splitting father's Day. I know there's a lot of fathers out there who have to split father's Day with maybe two other fathers stepfathers. Yeah the whole clan so I'm working through that. And so what I tried to do is figure out. At first. I was like well. I'M GONNA do my thing. He can do his thing. We'll get together at some point later in the day as pie and car But then I decided what our common interests so Fortunately well just coincidentally my. My mom is taking my girls to play pink delicious. The play I got my wife. I got my wife to drive them. Even though she going Inge Right GonNa sit outside or work at a cafe or something and so then my dad and I are now clear. So we're going to go to the movies on Sunday afternoon and then we'll go back to their place to barbecue so I figure movie meet and then everyone will join us and we'll have dinner and exchange gifts and Apple Pie there you go. And that's that's that's actually great. Because at the end of the day is the Dad and your dad is well what what does he want? He doesn't want pomp and circumstances. He wants downtime. Hedonism and but his pious tradition at the At your household. And Yeah but it's going to be funny because my mom. I think shows her love through cooking and I got and but I will not be partaking in the pie this year. I'm on that Tito. Oh good for you and so my mom has yet to find out that I will not be accepting her love on poverty. So we'll see how all that goes down. But do you know Glenn Let me tell you haven't we all you know as they're older again it's interesting when With the girls. It's a surprise because they drive and have means of income. You know it's literally GonNa be a lunch or a breakfast and I should be pretty much off the hook. Is it a meal with your kids without your this right? She does not get involved. Yes we've now gone to the father's Day or Mother's Day is solely kid and parent the other parent is singular. The other one is off the hook. So it's actually mother's Day was a vacation for me because I had an entire afternoon to of You know no one else in the household so was great so the same thing for her. So I'll take me somewhere. My wife is completely off the hook. Which which is actually fought because they're not my You know he's not my you know. What age does the bad gifts stop and more reasonable gifts begin? Oh it's usually goes elementary school. We actually The I think they go from the handmade gifts end about six grade. Just to let you know ten eleven and then they get into gift certificates such as I will spend time with you or something along that line and now I just told them this year because my birthdays just a week before and they already did stuff for me at I said. Let's do meal and experiential and I'm good you know so. I'M NOT EXPECTING ANYTHING THIS YEAR. Which is totally fine by me. As long as we're spending time together that's the important thing. Well here's a few other things that father's like to do or ideas to do because you can't be a little selfish on father's Day and I know fathers out there who are like. Oh I just want to spend it with my kids. That's the whole point of father's Day. I'm a father you can't be selfish or you can do things with the family.

That does it could be a step parent or another. Yeah Yeah Yeah but but still. That's did not know. Was that high I didn't either. That's amazing fathers from which country Spain's divorce? Yeah thank you. Fathers from which country spend the most amount of time with their children on average the United States the Netherlands Britain? I'd say the Netherlands. They always do my guest correct. That's right according to research conducted by Fatherhood Expert Stony Brook University sociologist. Michael Kimmel Dad's in the Netherlands. Spend twice as much time with their kids compared to American deaths twice which time British Papas put in forty percent more time than their paternal counterparts across the pond. Yeah more than USA that I believe yeah less TV less destroyed so which of the following famous DADS have the most kids. Jim Henson Mahatma Gandhi or Stephen King didn't know they were famous dance but I didn't either I'm GONNA go with. Let's do Stephen King Stephen King. That's an interesting one wrong answer. Sorry Jim Henson Gyms Jane at five children Just to let you know eight had five kids the at five kids. Yes okay gone have four sons and King History. Mci So in two thousand and eight. What percentage of American children younger than six eight dinner every night with dad so two thousand and eight percentage of American children younger than six ate dinner at every night which has got to be pretty small. Show every night stuff. Thirty three percent. Fifty four percent or seventy one percent. I would say thirty three my guest to wrong answer. If before interesting. Seventy one percent of American kids ate dinner every night with their dads in two thousand and two thousand eight. I find it hard to believe kids. Yeah no yeah right. Yeah I mean. It just seems highly unusual. How could it be when thirty nine percent nevermind I logically? Dads are a few more questions to go. We're not doing well right now. To write six wrong dissolute which major historic outnumbered we are? We've lost objectivity which major historical event institutionalized the family model of father as breadwinner and mother as caregiver So again one more time. Which major historical events institutionalize the family model of fathers breadwinner mother as caregiver and lightens men? The Industrial Revolution or world. War what I'd say the Industrial Revolution and the answer is correct. All right we got another one. Father spent more time at home Until that that event occurred so very good couple more questions to go. According to two thousand and nine British survey men gain how much weight during their partners pregnancies. Eight pounds fourteen pounds or twenty one pounds. I'd say eight eight is the answer wrong answer. Sorry it is. Fourteen dollars seems high but it does seem kilograms. Just let you throw over listening. Which of the following countries offers the most generous paternity leave the United States France or Sweden Sweden? The Swedes oddities we. Of course. Let's see here. They get at least two months off while earning up to eighty percent of their salaries at fantasma. That is a really the longer I M- around the more I get angry about that. The Census Bureau tallied up. How many stay at home? Dads there were in two thousand eight. This must be an older survey It's hard one hundred fifty four thousand five hundred fifty four thousand or one point five million. Stay at home. Dads import five million in two thousand eight. That had become answer. Only one hundred and fifty four now seems really small a lot of them were in Texas. All right okay. All right last question or at least last question that we're going to answer I as of two thousand seven. What percentage of working mothers earned more income than their husbands thirteen percent? Twenty five percent or forty one percent. I'd say I'M GONNA say forty-one percent at this point two thousand seven seven ten years ago or more than ten years ago. Yeah more household income than their partners. They earn more than their. I would say forty one and the answer. Sorry the answer's wrong. It's twenty five twenty five percent probably closer to forty now so fantastic our final score just to let you know Four correct eleven incorrect. I really do hope people are not taking advice. We don't know the answer number but that's all we have time for this week. I'd like to thank our host guest host. I think you did a stellar. Thank you much more interesting commentary than my other host. And he's great. He's great by the way I haven't met him but I do feel bad for his dog dog so so for children are very important is exactly and we'll get him on with you next time. He's a beer drinker as well. So thank you probably want to do. A being outnumbered try a path of Beers and international beer to make it really super. Actually that's interesting. It'd make an appeal to our listeners. From so until next time..

"Is amazing. how different this generation growing up to interact socially then. Yeah and and it's back to that non-confrontational something I wonder I truly wonder it again. Being a a pair outnumbered is it dot gender or is it. A boys boys the same age. Do they go through that to I? I honestly don't know I don't know either And I it you know it could be that. There are more boys probably. Don't pay as much. I'm stereotyping as much attention or could care less what somebody else. We're putting our view as grown boys younger boys and we don't know exactly I I do. I do wonder if a lot of the habits that I'm learning from. Our children of this generation are gender specific or cross cross gender. Yeah and I don't know and it's interesting I I've been So lately I've been involved in the theater company here for the and get spend more time with boys and girls and it is interesting. They are different species. There was a We had the quieter award ask so the day after there was zero awards. And it's it's more of a dinner than it right. The the one that we attended but the girls all dressed up to the nine seven beautiful outfits like basically a prom attire boys'll shorts. You know there was completely different sensibility. To wear their so and then they could care less and but they were happy to be there and the girls were happy to have them right It was very bizarre. How different it. Well Yeah I you know I see some of the grows at the high school and I'm I'm like you know how different were they or were we from them. I am you know but apparently were worlds apart from what I hear so I s It gets even down into the the days of the problem. We are up at your more than half of the attendees are going with other girl group girls and and is that because the The men are less men or at its but the dude you're going with a group of dudes. Yeah right right so you know they. Are they meeting up? Are they saying? Hey you want to go to prom with me. I'll meet you there. You know but because then on social media you see these proposals right right. I had yet to see one. I see yes. Yeah because it's all they all want to go with. A group of girls suggest and go to a house and get made up and then have pizza and then drive there together and then you can go to ihop effort. At least. They're still doing that to me again. Anecdotal but it's it seems to be if if one is a girlfriend a couple. Yeah that's antidote. Typically when they do it. It's rarely that I've never been out with you before yet. Invite you to the pro like when we were like. I don't know this girl from Nesh. I know I'm going to say hey. Would you mind going into the have any of you? Which hopefully some of the listeners will yes exactly all of our twelve thank you. I know you've got a high schooler and house driver's Ed going. Let's don't even know you're talking about so. This trend of I don't WANNA drive. Apparently is much larger than I anticipated. I you remember wanting to drive we were lined up today of our birthday It it it it. It takes a village with this. With my oldest. I've got the Owner of the driving school I've got a couple of parents helping me with some ideas And just to you know. I know I'm getting down to Bribery soon what's the point to where I needed just convinced her that legally responsible that she needs to leave the house went with a drivers license. But it's it's not an easy and of her. I would say you know the six friends as she hangs only to drive gone to rest on. I don't know about what what's your experience. Yeah it's about half drive and my daughter My oldest each one is like I said it's different. My oldest was driving to school for you know. She went to a different high school. Then my other two and so she had to drive there and got used to it. I I don't let him on the freeway until at least a year shares. Oh my middle daughter. Isn't freeway. Certified the Attica. She passed the test. I didn't think she would. She rallied. it was like you know went on for months eight nine months and then finally I thought. Oh she's never going to be able to do it. And then somehow she's just clicked it clicked and I think that's his nervous. You gotta get. I think is a dad. You have to be yet to feel comfort that they can handle. I think thing you always worry about is is one staying on the road but if something happens are they going to be able to react quickly enough and make a sensible choice and that is the one hundred percent true but let's dial it back a bit think about the influences of driving versus versus what they had? We we either art brothers. You're walking exactly a car for some reason. The iphone or the phone replaced the urge to draw. That's true as And if I if to the to the to almost a year the amount of kids who do want to drive versus don't WanNa drive. It's literally that transformation of win. The iphone really became part of. Why don't you WanNa go just drive of their? Why drive over there when I can just texture on my iphone and we can play a game on whatever on switches true that is that's a really interesting phenomenon where you're right it was. It was like okay. I can talk to somebody on the phone right which is other males not interested right girls but I Walk Right a bike somewhere and I'm humiliated right right age. Because they know I'm of age and then you end up the face timing that's done and so I don't know but we're working on it. I'm going to have to probably resort to the legally obligated stores. Your daughter is actually. I mean. Girls have been in sports over the years and your daughter is in synchronized right. Youngest daughter fantastic. And how did she get into that too? So both the girls swam and the road swimming and soccer. I was your soccer coach. I was I was and and swimming. Though they both fell into they really enjoyed the water. There were water babies So you know. Of course dad wants to be able to make it competitive. Let's get on a swim team. So we've their team back home and where they join here. We joined a local swim team as well and then As they were swimming some The pool that we normally were going to was going into repairs and we had to go to another pool. And that's where the synchro pool and the oldest one loved it because she was doing laps and she could hear her favorite songs being played Underwater the youngest one also did dance. She loves swimming. She loved dance. She loved the pageantry of the dance the makeup and everything so when when they the wife was there picking them up and she said hey mom. Can we watch this group? I don't know what they're supposed to be doing. But they're playing great music and and so they stayed for a little bit and that's how the love for secret when you merge dance and swimming together is what you get a synchronized swimming Super Competitive Your there's that commercial of competitive ribbon. Yes it was. It was one of those moments for me was like what am I watching? Everything is so subjective. You know scoring and everything but it is. The girls are just as competitive did cutthroat you know being in a Swim Synchro. Swim Circle. You get kicked punched physical closeness there that you know if you're in the wrong spot you're you know you get kicked in the throat or in the head or something and The amount of time those girls spent underwater versus above water during a routine amazing. Absolutely amazing and literally. They're underwater for a majority of the time. Yeah but they're getting a breadth and then there for a minute. Yeah and maybe not me but close to it. Seems like yeah yeah it is and then having to literally be synchronous and Movement Hinson dancing nothing to hold onto nothing to hold onto touch the bottom amazing and it's You know unlikely days past where you would be in three different sports right here yes. Sports are always an interesting thing where you get to you. Try Sport right either all in or not in it all so but it sounds like well wishing much success thank..

"And have you ever had to? Have your girls make a telephone call? Yes Oh yes. They shudder with If I want them to if this is so funny you say that If they really want it they will call and find out. Yeah right but it but it's a battle. It's a battle. I don't WanNa talk to a stranger. Good low yeah. I know it's a funny story last year. My daughter was studying in France and she's in college now right but And she said four years of high school French and one year of university French and we. I wanted to find out what the age was at a hotel. Sure no and I said I can call. Who doesn't speak barely any French or you can call right and she would not call and it was like so. I've got a call and struggle through broken French to find out if they'll accept someone under the last time you spoke French as nine hundred eighty five. That's always the way but we've all kind of dial back on our phone usage anyways which is which is a good thing so the you mentioned travel also is the. Have you ever taken like a single daughter? Just a daily daddy daughter. I think those are important so I think I've probably mentioned this to you. But my philosophy on travel is you know. I don't have a fancy car or you know. We don't do certain things that other other families probably would be considered as extravagant. We travel and so one thing my wife and I make sure we do have those experiences where we You know WanNa travel to a certain part of the region just with wife or just with me and we do it maybe once every two years or some great and But we do. Have you know we travel throughout the year? You've heard some of our travel Last father daughter One was with the oldest would down to she wanted to see this. Overwatch League Games Sport Oh yeah right right at the Burbank studios were Johnny Carson used to actually host actually and So the I said I'll be more than happy to take you but we're going to look at a couple of universities while we're down there as well so that USC UCLA UCSB CA- f- others but then spent the next day in this fascinating tournament. Were a bunch of kids are watching other kids play video games live gotta be designed at live right at live as one see? Are you looking at a big L. A. as you And I'll try to be cognizant of our listeners As you walk into the stadium with Her Majesty seating imagine a center stage area into the right. There is a row of Like a long desk with computers into the left. There's another row of desks along with computers. And each of the teams enter in a very dramatic high production value. Capes yet. No they're wearing jerseys number jerseys like they were athletes and so each team will sit on each side and then above them were. The long desk are is a multimedia screen that spans the breath of the wall. You're facing and so you get to see as they're playing through an each of them have their own view and he's like fifty screens on this. So yes I imagine five kids here five kids there say kids because they're all seventeen. Eighteen year old kids. Each kid has a screen that shows his view of the game and then they have a master view which shows how the overall the fighting it is. It is a sight to see. We're able to follow the action or absolutely but I didn't know what the point of me wanting to watch other kids play a game. Why did not I wanted to play in? But you know I'm sure your kids. They will watch youtube videos or other kids watching video games in commenting on it. It reminds me of that. Show Mystery Science. Yes thousand so that that was the old school version. Another quick topic also is the you like me had relocated for your work and your girls were at a tender age and I'm just curious from that. Standpoint IS THERE. Is there a best age or never good age you again? Having only move one time fortunately most my career in Texas where where where I lived. Everyone told me that sixth grade was a great age. With right right before you know the age because everyone's moving to a new school in everyone's getting new no good age then The younger one was I think in third grade or fourth grade at the time So it was hard Because of the crying yeah I think that's that's what got me. The most is because I don't know what to do with the crying crying. Yes I really. I don't want to sound insensitive but I truly don't back to the whole tough love being firm. We weren't allowed to cry. We weren't supposed to cry. If you're gonNA move Matt Mana or suck it up and just you know go or a new adventure view it as that and we'll make investment. You'll meet new friends everything. We tried everything right. Let Yeah I wasn't prepared for the the crying But I think within it within six months you know oh I got a friend of this person is talking about certain people if things became normal for them again right but It looking at it. Steve Wow six to seven years later I think the girls probably a half year probably would have been. I think Texas would have been a little different Growing up than here I think here in Arizona. You get kind of a west coast vibe where did not have that vibe so I think they're probably a little little bit. More may be laid back then they probably would have been in Texas. I certainly have changed You know the the you know the climate here is like why do you live in Phoenix? Well Georgia is climate. Yeah that's true in the end. The also I think they're now a able to adapt to things changed and things like that which well maybe your girls are able to change is a tough thing for us is is too but I'm saying in terms of never having gone outside of the community you grew up was bri raised. You know they I think they can be plopped into my kids plopped into an area. They're not comfortable with it but they can deal with it. I maybe you're right. Maybe I'm underestimating my kids but honestly the something about change that really and I thought it was general because every I'm not sure about your goals but every other parent on the block here went to the same thing that you know. I can't do this because it'll be different than I had before anything and so I'd I duNno I duNno change. Yeah it's not GonNa Mail Bag Mel. We also have another one. Just listen. We do an irregular episode called Herb segment called Mailbag. I just get your two cents here. This is one I hadn't sent this to you in order to from Clay Selection Klay from Nashville writes. My daughter will be taking the bus to and from school this fall. How do I teach her about stranger? Danger and being aware of her surroundings without making her too afraid and being paranoid. You know what that right way to get them to be aware of. You know Well I'd probably pass drink. Yeah I'm probably the worst person do that. Because I showed my stepbrother's the movie. Okay taught them the phrase. I will roundhouse kick you so okay. Fightback is a good fight back. You know there there. I was surprised honestly that his daughter probably doesn't already know about stranger danger because in elementary school. That is being touted very young. I it is and I think it's just the The now to the point to where she'd been driven to school. Yeah now there they just WanNa make sure sees well aware. Yeah absolutely you know. Don't talk to anybody don't know I think is one Traveling a pack. You know. Grab a little walk places. I think I think it's the basic rules that we were taught to that. I still are timeless minute. Walk with a crowd. Don't talk to anybody. Don't know someone brothers you run like Hell Ya Zigzag via bear runs allegations zigzag having JC you. But I think that's a common sense thing is just the talk define what a stranger is and then go from there. Got a point about adding. There's a stranger enter house. Yeah exactly that helps play. It does play. Good luck to you. Dr Early on the troll.

"Man. I think one of them. Yeah two First one is Believe it or not spike in Kansas City. So Uh name that's what he put into the the field I guess Or the when he emailed US spiking Kansas City. I see a lot about parent controls Whereas the Industry. Now what is the approach? Is there something comprehensive so? I guess this is a good question to. I've wondered about this You've got the daughters I I don't have to deal with as at this point but I'm assuming I'm looking for a solution on the operating system side of things apple Microsoft or are you buying some patch I mean. How do you monitor your kids use on Technology And there's all these things that prohibit them from going to certain websites. Do you have all those bells? And whistles turned on What's the what's the thought here? Glenn now it's do you think about it. It's a it's a continuum. Can your daughters access the Internet with any of the devices they may or may not have access to are you asking me or Madura? Yeah messy so I think when younger well yes they they have Sort of disabled iphones. That they watch stuff on it from time to time but since they really don't know how to spell. I don't think they're really Moving their way around the The Internet too much. Yeah and but at some point they they may and so what we did there at first is that we did have a You know pretty robust especially in elementary school locked down so there was only a certain number of sites they visit. But you know if you're in Google for example you can stumble across just about anything and So that was heavy locked down an elementary school and then You know a lot of closely monitoring a lot of these things. The problem is is when you start to do a lot of locking down it. It impedes what their ability whether it's research for school and things along that line. So you know I think the key is you can also figure out Before they figure out how to disable it is you know looking at their search history and other types of things. So it's you know heavily monitored in elementary school Randomly and frequently monitored in middle school. And then by then to be honest with you right now. We have no provision in place. We know what they're watching in most cases because they tell us and You know if there's a series they want to watch on Netflix. They still run a bias and like that so but it you know it's a matter of a early on is developing those good behaviors. They'RE GONNA not they're going to be exposed to some of this stuff But it's a matter of just keeping monitors spike an excellent question. Thank you well. Yeah and I like how you SORTA tiered it. Elementary school junior high and high school and sort of a You know lessening as you move through but Pretty comprehensive random and frequent. I like it that middle phase and then conversational and whatever you can assess In high school so good thanks Glenn Those are not an answer that I would be aware of so our second question is from rich in Fort Worth their look. I'm going to summarize this question. 'cause rich The thickness here. He says he they`re. They're thinking about expanding their family and he wants to know. The real differences between having two daughters were three or more so they must have to now and are thinking of having more. But what what issues are particular a to Having Girls Glenn and then And having more than two so you have a set of life and flow and issues. I guess with to When you go to three or more daughters what would be the difference. Is there any differences than having three versus two or four versus two or five versus two? I've got the two down. Yeah you got the two down and I just. My observation was it was harder to go from one to two them two to three and could it be. It's also one of the factors is the gap between the ages. You know if the kids are all diapers doesn't matter what happens to go back and start over is You know can be very daunting and so I found that three was You know you're outnumbered about on the other hand was just not as big as a For whatever reason going to second even though the kids are my middle daughter is extremely you know always been well behaved. It was such a shock to the system Because you're doing you know. Instead of being focused on just one you go to two and three was you know again a much easier transition but they're also much closer in age to so a lot of it has to do with you know the age Your temperaments I can handle. I mean I always am marvel by those who have four or more and You know again. I think you get what you can handle and You do the best. You can Okay that's all very good advice. A lot of factors come into play. What about Distant second daughter. Who would have been the youngest When you have a third this middle daughter gets Sort of squeezed out in your opinion Glenn We've always wondered like. Oh if we had a third you know what would that do for the youngest? You know WHO's no longer. The youngest the attention shifting away all that jazz did your daughter get less attention than the oldest and the youngest you know and and they all fight and by for attention and I think what happens. Is You know Being I'm a middle child to some degree myself You become diplomat if you will because you're you're basically having different kinds of relationships in the middle you know my We we obviously tried extremely hard to make sure that everyone got their share of attention And the little ones always going to try to take it and the little ones because they're the youngest they naturally and I think you're the youngest. Greg is they just. Don't care what anyone thinks. The oldest thinks they should all get the attention so the middle one is you know evolves into really a diplomat. And that's the way it's playing out here today. My middle daughter is the the peacemaker and the referee and and all of these other things. Where the oldest has you know a vision of the way she sees the world and the youngest is you know. sees the world that way themselves. So she's very compassionate and You know very you know a mediator in a lot of cases just because of her role in the middle of the family. But she's not as much attention as anybody else. Craig I also WANNA throw out a shoutout also remind you thanks for the mail bag. Items Folks You could just Send your message through. Dad's outnumbers DOT COM.

"All the princesses in the course of the day anyways if you go to the Royal Palace. I think it's called you meet four princesses right there. You're going to meet another two walking around Disneyland My daughter is walking around and ran into her favorite princess. Right by the CAROUSEL. She grabbed her hand and she was able to walk with Belle and beast through the park for short distance. My other one was there to see Peter Pan and he came right up and play tag with her. And so you end up seeing more characters than you thank. So don't get too obsessive about. I must do this so my kids will see these characters get no. That's that's an excellent point and there's always You know if you aren't dining on in the park they do have special character. Meals character breakfasts If their opener cheaper typically than the character lunch and dinner and you're so the character breakfast at Like Epcot You know it was always at Norway. It's a place that people were going to but it was a lot less expensive and you've got five or six of the characters there so it was a good deal from that Stan Mike. It's still remember that first time we went out areas grotto which I think is closed now but They got it was great for me. I had a beer at a booth and all the princesses came by one by one tenth of table. Thank you know you're GONNA end up paying for it but if that's something you're interested as dining experiences are numbered fantastic. Everybody interesting tips. Like I said we'll put those on our site but we're going to wrap up this episode. This is a two parter. So did you say to set a two-parter and the fun? Double The fun. And so we'll On our next episode we'll go into more tales of Disney and looking. You're talking about two parts for the same price. Oh we don't charge on. We don't charge.

"We would when you have an annual acids a whole different deal so this is out of things change. Well why it changes is that thank you greg? So the differences is that you WANNA is that this was an annual pass theme. Give like this anymore. But it had parking included so one it was so you only go unlimited times and so what it was was gopher lunch or we could go for just an afternoon. You didn't have to strategically think the whole day. You just say we'RE GOING TO EPCOT. And we're going to tackle the international area or stuff like that so we could be much more focused and it wasn't likes. You know we pay this much money. You'RE GONNA get every squeezed every ounce of pleasure out of it so it was. It's always more we'd go there for certain reasons and then Get it done and then leave. But we do it with greater frequency. We'd go you know probably once a month if not once or twice a month Is what it was so it really worked out very well and I think you find out also that Disney is great for truly all ages and again it gets different than what Craig mentioned is the rides become you know. Sometimes you have to split into teams one. Doing the ride's not we love the OCTOPI. Which is the you know where you drive. The cars and the kids would love driving the car. That this yeah. That's that's so cool a lot of great photos but you know I that that made it a different so You know from that. But it's a it's a great thing. Great we don't talk about you know Greg Yeah so I know we Thanks for the tips. We're going to put those on the site. But I think would always intriguing. Is You know to work at Disneyland. So because you know you're right you're able to look behind the curtain so tell us about what time of your life was this in so this is high school. I guess year maybe between my junior and senior you. So's a summer job summer job. I was living in Orange County during high school and Yeah it was interesting because everyone knows Disneyland. It's exciting to tell family and friends are working at Disneyland. Glamour of working at Disneyland is a little bit different but if you look at an aerial map of Disneyland. Two thirds of Disneyland is sort of what they call backstage area. So there's a vast world backstage just to put on this elaborate play and production. That's happening because you're all cast members disease mirrors exactly go through Disney University which is like your first university experience Enjoining it's just a day or two of no facial hair. The mouse's king sort of propaganda. And then you start to see. How is this elaborate system? Everything's in mass in a lot of people trying to get from. Point A. Point B. You gotta get your costume to go on stage. You have to report into Your Business Unit. Get your supplies now. I worked in concession so we sold everything from coke's glow necklaces balloons. Mainstream sure rose Popcorn the big one was there a lot of training for how to give it out without or or how'd it get mopped by kids without getting have having a meltdown wall? Yeah that's definitely one of my experiences. I always say you don't know stress until you've emerged onto mainstream. Say One thousand nine hundred eighty nine wearing a apron full of frozen glow necklaces and the kids which necklaces were cool by the new technology and they would just run at you in mass. There was no line. There was no order and they would charge a dollar seventy five apiece. Brutal quarter machine is Adrian rattling you. Could've these two dollars. It would have been on. They would've paid it but no order. Kids mobbing you. Everything in life seems pretty easy after. You've been mob night after night by children looking the red and white striped out button-down shirt what was what was your apparel like your costume. The Standard Concession Apparel back then was like a yellow outfit bright yellow outfit with like a red striping down the sides and necklaces. You'd wear a big black neighbor. Because he had to hold all that and the money and everything photos exist of you wearing that outfit crack that you could share with our fans no no. I won't be sharing but no I don't think they exist so the costume is different. Whatever land you're oh you'RE GONNA pay popcorn in Tomorrowland you gotta wear Tomorrowland. If you're going out to frontier land you gotta be like a cowboy hat. There's never any cross costume. Really gotTA keep your costumes consistent with where your signs and then so you'd come in and say Smith you're over at look it up. You see where you're at okay. A gold neck balloons. Like you gotta get your balloon. You GotTa Get your outfit. Go Get your outfit. You know address and you have to get your supplies from someone is just sort of working out those you check out your money belts with how much money when you come back. You have to count you know. All the math has to work out so you breaks we get you know you just see people roaming around backstage. Where did you go There's always the rumor the labyrinth of caves and tunnels underneath. And we're able to experience any of those unfortunately not. I don't think they let the summer employees to into deep into the death. Nia back ladder underground but the Couple stories people always like hearing about is One is like tinkerbell would hold. That thought. His Okay Tinkerbell. Back then would fly from the top of the matterhorn down at nine o'clock O'clock each night. The spotlight would go on her and she would glide down this wire to the castle writer winner Back then it was just sort of back and we would. We go there on our break. We'd grab some chips and Soda. Everyone would stand around to watch her. Come down because I think this was before in the eighties before Osha really stepped in with worker safety. She would come flying down that thing. There was no braking mechanism. There was no remote. There was no technology involved. She would be coming down that thing. Probably Twenty twenty five miles per hour and the way she would stop would be the slam into three mattress. So it really. Oh yeah she coming out fast. Go back below the tree line so no guests with. But we're all back there to watch her. She'd come full speed and she hit three bed mattresses that were damn wham and she would face plan her hands backers. Hush face would go to this same. We'd all be watching aiding like it was something to see. Tinkerbell just slam so it was like a stuntwoman right at the end. Yeah so it was actually a female. Who was all pure greats really really yep healer grace and loving and kind that? She flew through the air as soon as she realized she was about to. Hit the mattresses. Everything totally Oh my goodness yeah. Tinkerbell is awesome so I think they must have some automatic breaking. I would imagine today. I can't believe that so every night three times a night I was awesome and then one thing that I just told the story to my mom. Because somehow she'd never heard it but the the famous Chiro Wagon charm wagon Mediate let me. Just get into character for this okay. It was a cold chilly night. I was out near the haunted house in frontier lands at my true wagon dressed in my appropriate outfits waiting not much business person every once in a while coming by was a light evening as far as traffic in the park. One of those nights where you try to keep busy try to stay occupied and the big talent you have to have assure wagon. Yes you have to be able to count to ten the number one skill set because you take these almost frozen sure os and you put them through the oven and they come out. I'll warm and toasty and cooked. And you roll him and cinnamon and sugar course so that within a John Them. That was the job right. Yeah but on this night on this very night. This night to ensure rose went in seven km. No seven came out. You Start Doubting Yourself. Did I really put ten? You have started second guessing yourself start recounting until flames own heart disease three got caught in the oven and eventually flames burst forth fire and smoke coming from and stare at it for what. What did you do? I think I stepped back left your post grabbing the money which is the most important thing to mickey mouse and waited and someone must have called the fire department and so Disney has their own fire department and the fire trucks shows up. Vm THEY JUMP almost Jump Out of the fire truck and they put out the fire and I look at the firemen right there in front of me and it's my teacher is little time. I know that the teachers in high school also worked at Disneyland to make a little extra money your kids. This isn't employs thousands of high-schoolers every summer and I guess some of the teachers worked well so as totally. Surreal haunted house. Chiro Wagon Chiro. Fire my history teacher as a fireman. I thought it was. I thought it was drinking during the Disney. Police come out and and derogates. You investigate this so do you remember what happened afterwards was. Did you just sell the did you? I may have closed shop and I don't remember. Actually Oh my gosh rested. But how big was the fire? Did it engulf the Chiro standard known about as much fire as you'd get off by Lighting Rangers? Okay got it not accept fantastic so that was a good experience which you Was there aside from the being backstage. That people act differently backstage where there were. The people were their regular selves backstage. And then you put on a helpful persona. I did learn a lot about guest. Happiness and creating. Something you know creatively what it was all about to all work in unison to create an experience for someone else I mean. There's a lot of history there. Kevin Costner only Kevin Costner used to work at and Steve. Martin both worked at the magic shop. I'll be darned street. You know that there's a lot of famous people who grew up in Orange County. Who ended up working at Disneyland? And and you're one of them so that's fantastic. Who's a great book called Mouse Tales Mouse Tales? Yeah it just tells about the underbelly of Disneyland. All sort of stuff. That's happened there from people dying on rides to all these different the help that one. I'll have to check out but I think you know dealer say despite all of our experiences. We're still huge Disney fans and could go back at a moment's notice if we could You know because it is really. It's something special and it's fun and magical never got old. I want again and again and again and it never got old so while they're like really go to magic mountain or something. That's more about the rides but I don't think there's a park that really creates that overall feeling the same way a Disneyland or at Disneyworld does absolutely sal fantastic so hopefully these are some great.

"Let it looks like a copy. It doesn't look as real. You know it's authentic. You know what I mean. It's like they skimped on some things but That's my point of view but I have grown to love it Over the time so but was it. somebody types day. Thank you have been to Disneyworld Disneyworld easily fifty sixty times and I've been to Disneyland. Probably maybe ten times so young. I think I've been to Disneyland. One hundred four employees. I work there. Now let's get back to the Do you want to continue on with on there? Well no no we. We can jump around so I want to hear a little more about Disneyworld. Well Disneyworld. I think it's One thing you can't do this not staff. Yes so the park bench here. The one thing with Disney were of Walt Disney world resort. So it's The Walt Disney world resort for those of you haven't been there And there are four major parks and there's a variety of water parks so you have the magic kingdom which is a almost replica of Disneyland. And then you have the Basically Disney Hollywood studios which is trying to compete with Universal up the road. Then you also have epcot and then lastly you have the animal kingdom see a four separate parks all about the same size. Believe it or not me and my two daughters and a friend we we one day. We wanted to get To all four parks in a single day and We didn't make it was It was just wanted to do a ride at each one. You could. It's almost impossible to go to all four parks. You have to be are they? All Ford owned by Disney. They're all owned operated than there on the so. The The Walt Disney world resort is the giant campus. That they're on each of the parks are on there one thing that the hidden gem of course With these parks is that really was the still the neatest if I asked my kids today. What's your favorite Disney experienced? They would go Campground Disney or Fort Wilderness is what it's actually called so Disney has actually a campground on site and it's located near the contemporary resort near the magic kingdom and What's interesting about it is? Is that you. If you don't like to to camp were do the ten thing they'll actually Rent you attempt. They'll set it up for you. they'll stock it with food. They also have cabins log cabins there and then we our own camper so we camped there and you could eat off the floor. It's so clean. I Made Service They have liquor is a plenty And it really is the neatest experience because one. Is You park the car. And then you rent a golf cart and drive around pools. Open twenty four hours a day. There's no lifeguard after eleven o'clock and you can also rent boats on the lake which is awfully cool. And so all of that is a really neat experience at the Fort Wilderness Park. And we'll put all of these tips on the DADS outnumber dot com so sorry my being too rigid. No no I just like seeing people walk by and try to figure out what we're doing we're doing here. Yeah that's right. I'm Craig I do Want to say you know you mentioned you work there. So what how was it a summer? Was it a. What kind of tell me about that. Well before I get to work there. There are some things I wanted to talk about about our recent trip on police So one of the things I thought was important beforehand. If you have the time sow some people like to surprise their kids. Some people just go on a whim some people. Just don't mind how much money they're gonNA spend. They wanted to be special. And you're going to run into different types of people when they talk about Disney eighty eighty five percent of people will say that Disneyland Expensive Some people will think it's expensive but are fine thrown down a couple thousand dollars to make an experience I on the other hand More of a thrifty individual but I think when it comes to your kids right You WanNA establish goals for the trip. So if you're talking to him about going what are they most interested in it rides is attractions is it. Character interactions. What is it that they're hoping most to get out of the trip? And you won't have those conversations over a couple points in time so they can think about it give you feedback and then you can almost establish let them look at the the park map. Let them sort of get familiar with the park and trying to figure out what they want. Most so you can establish your flow your movement through the park around those goals because if you run out of time you. WanNa make sure you're hitting the things that are most important to your energy appier kit so get them excited Start targeting their interest. Figure out what those are sort of have a plan now. If you don't want to spend money which is like what I did. There are ways to Disneyland for a little bit cheaper so One thing is if you're planning sometimes you can plan at Disneyland trip. Nine months ahead six months at a sort of big outing so you can start saving points on a particular credit card or if you're doing business travel or anything the we had points to stay in a hotel. Most hotel companies are around Disney. They want in on that so You can stay. We stayed at the hotel across the street now. Everyone likes to go in on the Disneyland Hotel. We've never done that so I can't really speak to that as much by. I've seen it a couple of the hotels and I try to center that experience around the park. It's exactly I mean you're basically you pay for the lobby. Basically what you're really paying because the guestrooms exactly the same and Disney's are totally open to the public right. Yeah exactly and so. There's some great things happen in those lobbies you can always walk through. They're not gonNA kick you out So it's shortage shaping that experience so Stay on state a hotel on points We did the one park. We set expectations for one park. There was a little fall out on that because they hide Ana Nelson over in California so we decided to let him out for us. So we're not gonNA see on Anelka. There was a little bit of heartbreak about that but then we sort of moved on now. A little bit of heartbreak is better than paying an extra two to fifty dollars and the The Single Day Park Hopper pass peak just to let you know his one hundred ninety nine dollars. Great see several hundred dollars down. Just one thing I learned is you can pack your own. Lunch is now. We're talking down to Soda Cans Bottles Soda Cans. They don't care too much about what you bring in so you can actually bring in your own beverages to Disneyland. It's a great time So pack your lunch is packed dinner. Whatever it is. Compact Sodas cheetos. They say it's sort of more handmade type thing so you wanna make sandwiches have chips snacks and handmade type items. They don't you bring in your spaghetti from the night before and trying to eat it up and needed and that sort of one of the examples that they use. Microwaves the diaper changing stations. Just to let you know that it will. Why is that just a warm water bottles and bottles and stuff? Yeah so those are actually great oasis. If you have kids in diapers or it's a hot day you know. Those are places to go because there's chairs the setup for nursing mothers and for the families and it's quiet oasis at cost nothing to go into so keep that in mind to less. Tips is one is. You can think about getting them gift upfront or well. In one case I knew that the kids were into Peter Pan. Mary poppins right so I had ordered from Amazon and had the gifts sent to the hotel for guests. Arriving guests arriving on this date Craig Smith so when I checked in. They said we have some packages for you. That's really smart. And then the tip. Yeah and the kids get those toys or that in its get some satisfied and my brother and I have this Approach to Disney and the Disney Parks. Which is even if they're not satisfied with that. We always try to get our kids to get a gift early and so jen and I I will do is walking to the park so we stay across the street as you walk to the crosswalk to cross the street to get to Disneyland. There's a number of these knockoff. Disney you know Places you can buy schoffstall gift shops right and so we usually just tell the kids. We're GONNA stop in here. You got ten dollars to spend and so they go round. You can't buy anything ten dollars but we scale them up to fifteen and sixteen. We look like the you know the good guys show generous so yes and so they get something early in the day. Don't spend your whole day with the kids. Running around gift shops at Disneyland. Get Him something early at Disneyland in the park or even on your way into Disneyland. Then they're satisfied. They've got their toy playing with it all day. Long very strategic in little remind him of the day too so totally and then the last thing is stroller. You might not think you need a stroller a six year old. They walk everywhere. We never use a stroller in our regular lives at this point but we took a stroller and is okay. Because I think about this is your kids will eventually tire out do. Want them tiring out from walking from point a two point. Eight point scene in the near day. You're paying all this money in your day is done. At two o'clock three o'clock you'll be carrying them for miles right. Absolute we had a double stroller borrowed it side by side one. It was great the kids I am all for it. You can ride from place to place. We're going from matterhorn over to space mountain. Jump in the stroller whenever you want. If you WANNA walk walk if you WANNA be in the stroller hearing this great idea because what happens is you're right. They will physically there there there. My mind wants to going but physically. They can't off another steady and it makes and more pleasurable for them to actually not whining about anything. The DAY LASTS LONGER. They can go from ten. Am Til six or seven at that age and we never had 'em relief physically wear out and that's because we were pushing the stroller which is pretty easy to do. So I'm those are tips so we run a down year point stay nearby One Park if you can pull it off. Pack your lunch gift early in the day or upfront have it. Shipped to the hotel and take a stroller. Don't be ashamed of the stroller. Even if your kids are okay. And what was that website for the off? Peak season again undercover tourist undercover tourist. And we'll put that and this all off the tips on the sites there. One thing that's one advantage of staying at the for Disneyland area is by staying at the closer hotels again. Depends on the age of the kids. Is that We were there a few years ago and you could run. Run DOWN to the hotel for an hour. Rest take a shower and then get back at it. So that's one of the advantages. You really can't do that effectively at the Walt Disneyworld because everything is so darn spread out one other One quick tip on add onto yours. Well is Especially for the ladies. There's the bitty boutique and I think is wanted I know people who have spent a thousand dollars on whatever Te My tip is is that I don't know if they have something like this at Disneyland at Walt Disney World Resort in the magic kingdom. They actually have a barbershop. It's right on Main Street where the fire station is and we are two or three daughters their first haircut there so they put pixie dust in their hair. It's like I don't know what the prices are but it's It's super cheap. It's literally a barbershop. And then the only difference is they sprinkled fixing us and I've saved nine hundred eighty five dollars by doing that. And it's a great memory to get a hat and all of that so it's really neat neat experience. So the barbershop still there. I checked today and It's a great experience at. It's something people don't know you don't you can't see unless you're standing right on it and I don't think they take reservations cfpb standby and so you just keep going back until it's there and they move in and out. It's really a neat thing. I don't think they have it at Disneyland. But that is wonderful. Because what you're going to red crosses fanatics about this bitty Bob. Oh Yeah and you know. It's a great thing that's GonNa cost your arm and leg and then there's the justification in the rationalization that come with it is all their hair. They feel special to get to meet all the princesses. Well guess what they're gonNA probably meet.

"Those are like knockoff. Sohn's or they've brought in from somewhere else. You know on that subject. That's that's great. It's great that you showed restraint. And it's also great that your wife was had a calming effect on the situation so What was more than if I didn't. I was going to hear about later and get a full lecture right about her. Point of view on the whole happenings. Step step so it was like if I discount down. I looked better in front of the kids and I don't have to spend twenty minutes Learning what I did wrong. Yes avoidance and all about avoidance you know to give a updates on what's going on in US high schools That's very different than creepy than when we all know what I'm saying. So my My youngest daughter is in this program and they won the regional champs of the go to the state championship been. It's down in a city in Tucson. So it's a couple of hours away and they stay overnight but was funny because the rules at evolved over the years so they're taking his school bus down there but this this time no one can bring pillows or blankets at all and boys have to sit on one side of the bus and these are high school not elementary school. Kids girls at the center of the other side of the butts. So you start thinking yeah you start thinking what exactly went on where they had to create this policy and the other one is Let's see Yet no one can go in any other hotel room which is fine and this is a regular public school or as a regular public school. Yeah and if there is no lifeguard on duty no matter how good of a swimmer you are in that there are adults around. You cannot go in the water. So while at that's I would just probably not a bad thing. But it's it is amazing the There's always more and more slightly punitive rules that that GONNA place And so that was the latest update on the that one. I just wanted to share with you. Well this we're sharing Glenn. I loved though her sharing So my oldest eight year old went to a birthday party yesterday. At this hyped up our tuckey sort of jumped park but it really had like it had zip lines where you're flying through the air all the way around above people. I mean. This thing was on steroids so I took the two younger the youngest daughter and a friend of hers to apart just a regular park city park. But it's a really good one. They a lot of and I sat down in the shady bench and this Mother couldn't resist talking the data. She started talking to me. And you know we start talking about kids and watching these other parents like they just are helicopter parents at the playground stand. Like excuse rarely get into any situation that they're not being saved by apparent even if they're only three feet above the ground and it always comes down to my My thought on the whole subject. Which IS WE WILL LOSE. World War three this generation of they can play on a playground without Ri- someone being there to catch them no falling no collisions. Nothing unless it's a text war or social media war think we're losing world war three pretty close there and and it is a lot of it has to do is the only child or the first child because once they have multiple. It's like it's like you exponentially grow the distance that you watch once you get to the second kid and the first one didn't break the second one did break and by the third. It's like where if you've been to any you know so it is. It is one of those things. So that is one of the factors that and especially with these younger these kids younger than your youngest daughter or about the same age. Yeah that maybe a little younger right. Yeah it when they get that age. It's it's like okay. You gotta give them a little little room. There is one of our tips from our book how to raise healthy confident. Daughters is really to give them some room. You want to be there to make sure the conditions are safe. But they have to learn to fail or fall or You know they have to learn how to take some risks calculated risks make. You'd make sure that they don't maim themselves but Yeah that's good. Sorry about the the hovering parents. So what did your oldest one that you didn't go to zip line park right. You now dropped her off. The drought okay. Got It well. And what stage do you start doing that? Probably about two months ago okay gap. It is one of the ones where the parents always in. We used to host parties at jumping places. And you know there was always you had to have food for the parents because none of them would leak and then you're right. It a certain age they drop offs and then I mean by that that an ice cream wagon. I'll be darned. Yeah you probably sell drugs on assign a unbelievable unbelievable but but good for you Craig. Do you have anything stronger than Iraq? And and that's a Oh my goodness the family show very the you know in the news. Recently there's been a lot of chatter about the college entrance scandal which is kind of similar this our topic near the this is our topic for the weakest. Let's frame it Ohio Glenn. What's our topic topic? Well it's women greater than that. I was more of Indirectly where you've got you know these parents that are cutting corners and that's term that people may not understand and yet you're trying to teach your child to to their turn in line and to follow the rules and yet you see others you know skirting the rules. So how do you show them that? The the best strategy in the long run is to follow the rules and not to to cut corners. I mean that's the hard part is the how many times in so the college scandal is one where you've got parents and there is probably on them and a lot of cases so celebrity yes sub celebrities which people love exactly but they spend a huge amount of money and really defrauded this other thing to get their child who wasn't interested in academics in new a prominent school. I mean the the one. That's most notable as that you know. They're they made it up to choose on the crew team and photo shopped. Her face in a group with just a sterile. The lakes that someone who would go to to get there but it but it it. It goes back in time. It's the you know the person who is self absorbed and so we had a term for this and We're this came about that. I like this idea of Photoshop Photoshop. My face or my children's face into groundbreaking scientific breakthroughs. Mike cure is my daughter. Curing a lower form of arthritis in adult than ever over test tubers or or. You could shop everybody's face on a Disney ride and say and save a whole bunch of money by not out later all the time. It's like I don't remember that while you're too you know you don't have until you're thirteen. Exactly yes right so but he so where we started. This was in. We're this manifested itself. Is that when the Are My daughters were old? You Know Mitt interest while waiting in the car line inevitably. There'd be a van that was taken enormous enormous amount of time To get the the the kid to get themselves together to get out just delaying the whole process. Otherwise or another one was. It'd be the van that would An inch themselves ahead. Take cuts line against slowing the whole car. Line or -til out and We would have a term for this and it was always a boy Just to let you know but the term we would use. We would to him as Timmy. and so it's really the timmy factor. If you will but again at some child that is you know so self absorbed the family so self absorbed that. They're not concerned about the welfare. What they're doing Anyone else around them. They're gonNA do what they do. They're going to take all the time. They need to do what they need to do. You could care less about the stuff I do care about it so my point is well children model. What they're taught right so they're probably seeing some form of that behavior in their parents or adults and the kids are also modeling. What is okay? And what's not because all we're doing raising children is establishing boundaries of mines and teaching them when they can go past that and when they can't and I think what you're seeing.
