"Right I'm here with Brent Hefner Brent grew up with a family whose pretty creative sovereign minded, and who are always trying to have an influence where they're at. Brent believes that it was this love for creativity and influence that has kept him with in the tiny House Movement for a number of years creating content, writing a book and featuring incredible tiny house creatives. He now uses influence to bring the community together Brenan hefner welcome to the show. Even it's going to be here man. Great to have you so. Hoping you could just kind of take me back to the beginning of how this all started for you Your love of tiny houses starting the instagram account. Tell me tell me that story. Absolutely. Well. It started back man I was about fourteen fifteen years old and I did a lot of. A lot of social media blogging and marketing as a hobby as a young teenager and had a lot of friends that were doing it online and my dad one day sent me an email with the container house. It was a decis shipping container, which you've been transformed into a home and I'd never seen that I don't think a lot of people. My Age might generations It wasn't super super popular and I took a look at that and I was like Oh my goodness this is incredible. So. Sparked something in me and I started researching more into it and I found out that there wasn't a good place online for people to find inspiration that but there wasn't like A. Solid instagram account that really puts content. There wasn't a twitter account that posting quality great blogs I'm sure yours was around that time and there were like awesome websites but as far as like. Very, very instant immediate of content on media. I didn't find anything. So I was like you don't let me start something on twitter just as a passion project like homes that I love that brought me alive. So I started posting about it and and as you seen it out to friends and kind of using. Social Media Techniques today with it blew up, and then it went to instagram and out from there I've just been doing a featuring a lot of different people wanNA I've done some different short films on tiny houses and I. May Get into this that I wrote a book got published by paying around. House. Last year and I've just really cool stuff. I'm so thankful and just so blessed. So. About. When when is this that you start doing this on twitter and Instagram Sure This was about. Twenty. Twenty to thirteen maybe. Okay. That's pretty early on. In terms of like online tiny house stuff. Yeah. Yeah. There wasn't a lot going on at that. At that point I think really online like there were handful of blogs and then like tiny house blog and tiny house talk. Yes. House design three very good websites but your but. It's interesting that you know. You know at that point you were you were thirteen fourteen you said yeah, I was like, yeah run fourteen I think and I think it's it's so interesting because like You thought to go to social media first and say like, where's the content about this topic whereas like? You know other people other generations might be like, Oh, I wanNA find a website I wanNA find a book. So I think that's really cool that you just went to the place that you wanted to see the content and then couldn't find it. Exactly, exactly, and it started off as a passion project and this is something. I've started some different small businesses and I'm really into like creativity in startups and stuff like that. So one thing that I always like a good foundation is to always start something that you're super passionate about as most people they wanNA, they wanna you know figure out they WANNA make and figure out how to how to you know love it. Instead I say forget what you love and if you're gonNA, make money from it right so It's like it was something that I really love in that. That was a really healthy beginning. Nice. When did you start being able to actually make money from from it? Well money's never really. I I kind of use that statement. I guess. As as an overview everything by. Money's never really driven it in never been a huge part of it. It's always been content and inspiration creativity. But of course, I was able to write this book and that was that was a blessing. So that's really been a you know the main. Monetization is far as a apart from a helping out brands here and there doing doing advertising you're in there, but it's it's mainly just the creativity and passion that drives it in the people see that and they're like A. You know I, want I wanNA do something with that I pretty healthy foundation a pretty solid one to work from
David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

What happens after you die?
"And what happened after you die? I don't really know my grandfather is. This is my brother. Can I think his body's gone and consciousness he's gone. Things were at their his box of committed ashes are right in front of me. Tell you what's his planning like? It know your voice is getting on that. Thing you're getting set. He's alive in a way. Like a ghost but as like. As like something. A. Scientist from never be able to know 'cause like let's say they need someone to die. So that they could make that on that. How would they make data on that? If the PERSON'S DEAD Kuenz right isn't a data. Yes. Some people have these near death experiences and they talk about like the lights at the end of the tunnel but the fact that they've told us about this means that they didn't die. I kind of feel like science isn't really going to work this time. So I. Thought I might turn to religion for semesters. Own Interview Buddhist because my grandparents they're Buddhist. And you know my dad is technically Buddhist although he doesn't really celebrate it. And I'm just interested to see what put us a mess to say about death there is no real short answer for the question that is so profound. This is Angie Neal he's actually chaplain for Olympians. And not only is he met the pope. He's also met the Dalai Lama so like this guy must know a lot about Buddhism. The main belief in Buddhism three scientific way of looking at things energy does not disappear. It usually assumes another form. and. The belief Buddhism is that when you die your spiritual energy does not just disappear. It assumes another form and that form can either be in hell or it can be on earth. Or it? Could. Be. In Heaven. In terms of Hell Hell is not a permanent place in Buddhism, hell is jail. If you've got really really bad Karma, you go to jail and then you have the chance of being pardoned and you have the chance of probation. So in Buddhism nobody goes to hell forever then comes earth. Now Earth of course is the most interesting part of it. If you are reborn on earth, you can either be reborn at says an animal we can be reborn as a human being there are certain criteria which would help decide what would be your formulas adopt like maybe if you're an aunt but you're like a really really good and maybe it come back in this time like beetle and just maybe work yourself up. Excellent. You've you learn certain spiritual lessons in this lifetime like in the same way that like a punishment itself isn't necessarily all bad he get punished so he can learn from that absolutely if you deep genuine remorse. Ask for forgiveness. They will give you a chance to go directly to heaven which we call Judo in Japan or Sukova Incense Sanskrit. Basically it's heaven.
Court Unseals Documents in Ghislaine Maxwell Lawsuit
"Unsealed documents show that Jeffrey Epstein was offering advice. Take Elaine Maxwell as latest 2015 despite her lawyer statement that the quarters socialite had no contact with the disgraced financier in a decade. Maxwell's in a federal jail in Brooklyn after her arrest this month on charges of engaging with Epstein in a sex trafficking scheme, she's trying to stop the disclosure of documents that include her sworn testimony in a civil case. Joining me is Bloomberg legal reporter Patricia Hatano, who's been covering the Maxwell case that give us the background on these documents there? This is a prolonged involved. Story goes back here. There was a young woman named Virginia Robert to Frank's, and she says that when she was 16 years old, she encounters going Maxwell at Mar a Lago. Her dad works there, the maintenance man, he gets a job at the law. She's handing out pals and ah lovely woman. British woman comes up to her She's reading a book about massage and offered her a job working for this wealthy man who wants to go looking for a private, Mr She said. She was 16 years old at the time. So she goes to the mansion. If it turns out, she's introduced Jeffrey Epstein and he immediately and Maxwell, she alleges. Forced her to perform sex acts with the two of them program and she became a sex slave she and alleges that was in 1999 2000. So then she ends up. Trying to join a law with victims of Epstein after everything gets his secret plea deal, and she makes him comments about Maxwell publicly and Maxwell coming back and issued a press release in January 2015. She makes pigments and says that this woman is a liar. Would provoke a pram a defamation lawsuit. Dupree, Suze Maxwell for Defamation and Natural gave testimony under oath questioned about the sex trafficking. Judy was very, very aggressive. Her lawyers included David Boy and this guy Bradley, Edward and Pottenger in Florida, and they really went to question Maxwell at people that worked at the stain home in Palm Beach. All kind of allegation. Soju phase allege with force have sex that you have traffic in Spain. This man including alleged princes, possibly Prince Andrew. She named him and Maxwell denies it. So what happens is the stuff was all settled right? On the eve of trial, 2015 losses got settled right before trial, And then the documents were under field. So how did all those sealed documents get unsealed before Jeffrey Epstein's suicide? But after F being gets prosecuted, the Miami Herald goes to ask why this field And the Court of Appeals. Second Circuit Court of Appeals directed that the judge who had originally had the law didn't properly feel you shouldn't have properly field everything. It was improper to keep all the documents from the public. And so that's how we get to this point. The circuit orders last on the order all these documents and fields and all the documents start hitting the docket. And the next day, Jeffrey Epstein is found dead in his jail cell of an apparent suicide. So the document release was sent back to a new federal judge to preside over what properly on field in what should not be properly and field And you can imagine there's all these implications for other people whose names may can't come off other victims who allegedly were there when the trafficking occurred or were also traffic who may not want to have their names come out there like a Jane Doe Juan and a Jane Doe two and no Mortal, Jane Doe and also John Doe. So Judge Preska on July 23rd shelter hearing after you know, Matthew now been charged and says, Okay, let's go and have a hearing about what you get on field, So she ordered the first transfer documents to be unsealed last Thursday night, So that's how we get to the testimony. Maxwell with questioned under oath. The government used the testimony as a basis say stay. She lied and committed two counts of perjury for lying when she claimed she was never present. When Ft may have been sexually abusing, underage girl know, and she'd seen anything like it, she was not aware of that activity, illegal activity no more. President ever witnessing it so that testimony remains under seal because she went for an emergency motion and after the court of Appeals to again stop the release. Thursday night, the 30th so that was on 11th hour stock about part But the rest of the documents hit the docket starting at like 9 30 on Thursday night. How many documents are already out 2000 pages released in August. So that's when we started first seeing these allegations of possible you know Prince Andrew's involvement, some captains of industry more implicated some senators from former president their allegations that were flight records of people who were on the plane.

Calculate Your Value
"This morning as me and our three-year-old were about to do math I told him to get the abacus. Has Stall Tactics telling me about dinosaurs T. REX's digital Alex. Lions elephants in like. But not, today, we sat on the SOFA. And as unprepared to slide the beats of the epic is over. He said to me mom you Miss Your Dad I. Do I reply with a rhetorical yet affirmative of course I miss my dad in my head that's what I wanted to say. But I said in just listened. Yeah because he's in heaven I miss him to. Our son's three. My Dad was killed in. Nineteen. ninety-one they've never met. Not here on this earth. In the physical round in the spiritual realm I'm not sure what that can counter was like took that question away. We went on about our day we played. We ate lunch there was no further mention of my dad. It wasn't until put them down for NAP and I began prepping for dinner that a song came on. What we have is much more than they can see. I'm not sure what the trigger was. But it reminded me of being in middle school seventh grade walking around the track looking up into the sky saying if I could project site into the heavens. Just to see my dad. I know it sounds crazy. But that was my middle school mind. It took me a few years to grapple with the understanding of what happened. It was so traumatic. So instant. into the tears flowed tears of joy though because see our son was doing a math of his own. What I was focused on was the present value. The present value of how I felt at that time I was happy. I was totally not even thinking about my dad. But Isaiah. He was. Focused on. The future value. How I would feel in the future how he knew I'm not sure but he did. And, that's what I want to tell you today God is focused on. Your future value. Don't worry about the. Subtracting in dividing that you did in the past. Diminished value don't worry about that. God is focused on your future value. He's adding up all of your future value banking on you. He has bank on you so much so That he sent his son Jesus. So, much so that he sit his son Jesus. Many would say. It was a subcontractor as he hung on that cross. But I say. He was adding the value. Of each of our lives. Is No coincidence that the cross. Looks like an addition sign. because. God. was adding value.
This Meeting is Being Recorded
"Welcome back everybody thank you for tuning in. Again we've taken a couple weeks off in having recorded. WE'RE GONNA. Get. A little punk nibbles going here for you You know one of our short episodes GonNa be s a little bit. Talk about what's going on and we're going to kick this off with what are you listening? Sorry what are you listening to as an aspiring teacher? I should probably know how to speak correctly. Right So this is Aaron and I'm going to pass over to Mike and say Mike. What you've been listening to lately. Yeah Hey guys what's up? How you guys doing Pretty well, he did ask you a question, but I'm okay with just not answering just ignore the question they ignore the question completely and just see where this takes us. Yeah as someone who wants to be a teacher I should get used to that sort of thing. Yes. I'm just going to say Mike has been listening to Miley Ray Jepson. Because he really likes the way she sings and the fact that she uses words. Mouth Worm. So now we'll kick it over to. Jesse. Jesse what have you been listening to? Yeah. Have you heard of? Mandy Moore. But seriously. We actually have some news about the podcast, not not just what we've been listening to but. We recently joined. A network of podcasts called Pantheon podcasts were like pretty excited to be a part of this group. Pantheon podcasts is a conglomeration of sorts of that have been assembled of many different podcast specifically with the theme of Music, and there's tons of different podcasts that are on this network and we encourage you guys to A. Check out some of those folks that are on the. On the network with us there's quite a few shows on their own. We joined up with them recently and I've started familiarize myself with. A few of the podcasts on there there's a few that like I definitely listen to myself indefinitely enjoy Have you checked out any of those from Pantheon Mike Yeah Yeah I've been listening to some. It's pretty cool. So, what some of our listeners might see is our show will will show up in the Pantheon feet as well, and we kind of encourage you to Not only subscribe to our show so that you get new episodes as it comes out but also if you go the beyond. If you search pantheon on your podcast amp you'll find their feed, which like they put out a bunch of different episodes of a bunch of different shows and something new is on there every day So no matter what style of music you like there's something there that my interest you there's also some really deep kind of like music history shows on there that are like more investigatory kind of stuff. one I've really been enjoying is the show no filler. And maybe we can connect those guys at some point they seem to like some of the same music that we like. And the shows pretty cool because it takes a look at abandoned like maybe is known maybe he's not quite as known but bands that have had like a single that got out. But it goes back to the album from like singles have come out and digs until like one of those tracks between. And Goes Kinda deep until like some lyrics and and maybe over our story arc of full albums been I've been digging that lately they just had an episode of bit ago they had me without you. which I really like me without you and so the anti poetry and the mix genre of all. Of Digging There's there's quite a few that I've checked out at least a handful of episodes for but I mean there's so many podcasts on the network. You can't really listen to every single thing unless you're just listening at two times speed all day long but a couple that that I've already become a fan of there's one called. Make It stop which is called? The title of the subtitle is a bad music podcast where they specifically talking about music that they think is straight up bad and They've had some episodes around even bands that I don't necessarily hate in fact, the first episode ever heard they just bashed on the band creed. That's a band that I don't hate but it was it was still fun to hear them Bash on the bad music. They also feature some other bands like not future, but they talk about Imagine dragons they hit up Maroon five definitely nickel nickelback in all time an all time worse was that's called. Make It stop check out there? Pretty pretty cool over there, and there's just a few others that I've listened to to although make it stop is the most called a muses. A. Dad Bod, rap pod. Those guys are pretty sweet anyways. So, check out some of the other stuff of their pantheon everybody.
More Shows To Watch If You Liked HBO's Watchmen
"We're GONNA talk about recommendations. I for the long haul and these are things that we are either current or in the way back and there's this you know the. He is like when I sit down to try find something there's so much going on that I spent like an hour being watched I don't WanNa Watch. That should do this and it's like I, just want someone tell me what to watch. That's what we're going to hear for. Yeah. So we're GONNA basis off the some of the nominees for best show in the emmy categories I start off with HBO's watchmen as from Damon Lindelof this set in an alternative universe and drafting off the ground and comic book watchmen is It's like this dazzling procedure designed to also make you think that twenty six emmy nominations, the most of any serious. Like NERF gun to your head best show of the year. What would you say? Oh, it's watchmen watchmen to me like for limited series. So it's an a different categories, but I would even say it's better than all dramas on I. Think. So it's it's crowning achievement of TV this. So for sharp for me, I'm I'm thinking of like I want a show that looks great. Visually also will make me think. So I I wanted to go directly off of Damon Lindelof because I feel like he's kind of peak of his powers right now. So guys are wondering like other stuff he's done and I I can't think about the leftovers it's a similarly. It's a great show. It's alternative universe incredibly well, made really thoughtful but also like very simplistic in terms of you applying it to your that feels like watchmen felt current but also set in a different time. And leftovers current but also sat in a different times. So I love that the weirdness of the masks in watchmen which was so precious. So yeah, it's it's. It's phenomenal the other one I was thinking of when I want to. Recommend a show in in that Washington vein I'll say Black Mirror it's close enough. It's not really narrative based. Yeah. It's vignettes and different standalone stories, but it's kind of an alternate. Reality it looks close enough to realize that you're not sure that it's not. Yeah. But it's also telling us some darkened weird stuff about yourself. And the good thing about Black Mirror is to watch it. You're not watching it in each episode is its own Y'all episode so That's will put like some of our own favorite episodes that we both have really loved that we can include in the note. So you don't have to wonder because listen that first episode it's Just you just need to skip it. Hear me if you don't hear anything else if you don't hear Jamie doing the weird change of momentum at the beginning of the show if you forgot that already that's okay. Forget it. Here me this do not watch the first episode. Mom Don't do it dad don't do it much mom don't do it nobody do. It. Would be a mistake. Okay. It's a for me. If you love watchmen where you're like, that seems like it's good. Let me tell you to other shows that are good. So on that flakes, you can watch Jessica Jones I chose this because you got strong female lead just like you have in watchman, you have a superhero component which you also have and Jessica Jones it's dark. It's Gritty the villain in Jessica Jones is played by David tennant in that first season and he is per faction it keeps you on your toes. It's also very you're very to the visuals also recommending legion. Hulu. That's weird. Right because I think when you watch watchman, you're like I'm confused. Limits where you're like I, need to watch this again. Being, existing Ip it makes you think should I know that and I can confirm I. Didn't know. And watchmen I would sometimes read like recaps after I. Would Watch an episode and that would help me catch things maybe that I didn't grab the first time with Legion stars Dan Stevens? Famous playing. Matthew on. Downton Abbey He. It's a done by Noah. All Superhero Jason because this is the story of professor x his incredibly powerful, mentally ill mutant sign and so it's it also stars Jean Smart who is also in watchmen man she's in a Lotta. Golf that she has very good taste, and so it's weird enough that you're like It's not that classic Superhero which is what I also like about watchmen if we had done if we'd time traveled and done a designing women saying draft Jean Smart would not be my. Number. One pick would be any pots it would be we'll for private. Not. It be any pods, Anthony Delta Burke Julia sugarbakers. dixie Carter lab next to last over Jean Smart. Yeah. My point here is everyone would have been before Jean Smart Jean Smart was second. I'm going to be in Sweet Home Alabama and you're not going to know what to do with the low key cares. Okay.
Mastering Money With the Budgetnista
"So. Tiffany. Let's start with your personal story. So we're currently in third recession of the century. But I'm guessing that you're doing just fine partially at least because of the lessons you learned during the last recession to tell us a little bit about your history, what the last recession was like for you and what has happened since then. Now. Certainly The last question caught me off guard i. Was Not prepared. I because quite honestly I was a schoolteacher and you know I was pretty confident. I'm like, I don't know that schoolteachers lose their jobs because you know we are essential workers, and now yet here we are back again. But Yeah I was a schoolteacher and I didn't move my job actually in two, thousand, eight when so many of my friends did but I let I lost it at the tail end of two, thousand nine. So it really took me by surprise but. Up until like I would say, twenty, five, twenty, six, I was what I called financially. Perfect. I grew up in a household. Money was talked about wasn't scared of talking about finances. Might author was a CFO OF A small nonprofit? He also had his NBA in economics, his his a in finance. My mom was a nurse and we literally used to have money meeting so. I. Didn't grow up with the angst that most people did. So by the time, I was twenty five even though. I was teaching preschool wasn't making much. I think I was making like forty thousand dollars a year By the time I was twenty, five ahead. Forty thousand saved bought a Condo I. I had an ADL to I. Think Credit Score at didn't have any credit card debt. I paid off like my parents helped with my undergrad degree plus. I commuted. So what I did haven't stood alone. I was able to pay that off a few years after school. So financially perfect like okay. So I honestly couldn't relate although I was helping my friends with their budgets savings and things like that. I couldn't relate to the mistakes because I had not yet need them but I was going to then. When I was twenty six, I went on to get my masters in education and I was like, okay. So you now you went from no debt to a mortgage, not so bad. I had a a you know student loans because my master's not so bad. But by twenty six, I said, okay. Now, I'm ready to learn to invest and instead of asking my father who has literally two degrees in years of experience I'm GonNa ask a friend of mine. and. So I asked a friend of mine who appeared to be independently wealthy because he had like a really nice car. and. Like a like a fancy apartment he's well I think Spurs. You have to learn to invest with other people's money at. My money. So what he postulated as is that. Do, you have credit card said, yes. But I paid off in full every month because as instructed by my father, he was like well, did you know you could pull money off a credit card? I, did not know that. So he said not only can you pull off one? You could pull it off to I was like double the mistake. Let's do it. So I pulled off twenty thousand dollars off of my credit cards and I went to invest with him what's to say? That didn't happen I. ENDED UP Thirty, five thousand dollars in credit card debt when I didn't have credit card debt prior and I just remember thinking a first year. I said didn't want to take responsibility for the mistake that I made I did not tell my dad or my mom. But I pay just a minimum because I said, you know what? He's going to come back or he's GonNa. Take care of this because it's not my fault of Ansel from age twenty seven I didn't do anything. Well, twenty, seven night out the money twenty eight, just pay the maximum finally twenty nine, I said all right I'm GONNA pay off this debt just going to buckle down I live pretty frequently anyway, and then twenty nine is when I lost my job. So. Now, I've got a mortgage student loan credit card debt and I was like, okay, I don't know what to do. I've never been in the situation. So. Fallon to this light dark hole of like spiral like because I'm twenty nine going on thirty I've lost everything as far as I can tales financially. So I ended up moving back home with my parents without telling them why they knew it was the recession obviously, and they also knew I lost my job, but they didn't know. ABOUT CREDIT CARD DEBT Live with them for year than I. Am I live with my sister on her couch for year, try to figure out my life because back. Then now we're getting the six hundred dollars a week on our stimulus stimulus check. But what was happening then as they just extended unemployment typically, you can get unemployment for up to a year. They extended to two years. So I said, okay, you have two years to. To figure out what are you going to do with your life I was afraid to go back to work for someone because I thought it, you can lose a job as a preschool teacher essential. Then that's not safe. What could be safe? So I tried a bunch of different things I tried on party promoting party planning I volunteered everywhere I can think of, but while doing so I was helping my friends. But save get out of debt all these things in one day. My friend said, you should turn that into a business and I'm like you. Now I had gone to school my bachelor's degrees in business, but I hadn't used it. And so I, tried to charge people one on one. Only to find the people that you're actually helping with your budget. The reason why they hired us because they don't have any money. So that was a bad business. So I, switched my business model to one too few and I worked on getting contracts and I got my first contract with the United, way? And I rose excited 'cause they were going to pay me I think like. Three, or four, hundred dollars a class and I had a six week course that I'd written. For them, and so I did, and that was like my first. Okay. Maybe I can really make a run at this My little sister gave me the nickname, the budget. So that became because she said like, I'm not like the fashion. Easter. Who is really fashionable, but I am very cheap so
HereAfter with James Vlahos
"Hereafter is uses conversational ai to help people save and share their life stories interactive way if this is something we've been doing in older technologies for. Since time began practically I by oral history than recording in books than photos, videos, audio this anyway, we can sort of capture the essence of people and passed along to the next generation. As the idea of hereafter is, will we have haven't new canvas have a new medium we have boys computing. That's a way to. Get People's voice and then share their stories memories, dreams, songs, jokes, wisdom all of that in a back-and-forth manner. So it's non new longer just you a nerd experience of reading somebody's biography or memoir. It's even talked to Avatar of somebody a legacy Avatar. Hear their voice talking back. So. That's the the essence of the company as the inspiration was very personal. It was back a few years ago. My father had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. And we knew right away that he had a matter of months to live, and the first thing that happened was I did a district conventional oral history project with him, recording him talking all about his life and. Had these hours and hours recordings got them. All professionally transcribed had a binder full printed out as his words at great resource for this inert resource and that was right at the time that I was getting more involved with conversational AI and researching the book and realizing, Hey, you know there's a new way to. Share this information, and for me, there's a new way to sort of you know I was I was desperate like had Michael Hold on I'm losing my dad do I hold onto him in this? Admittedly, a very incomplete way compared to having the real person, but but some way to capture some part of his essence and keep it around. So I did that I created this conversational agent that you could access on Facebook Messenger. Messages with it, and you could get little videos and audio clips as well and I called Bath The dad bought, and that's really the. Basis that for everything discounts sense. and. So while I mean. Obviously. It's a very personal story. I'm just I'm just trying to think all the questions that come to my mind about this. What did you think about this? When you when you shared this idea with or did you share this with them? I did. It was very important for me to get his permission for some foremost but also the permission of other people in the family because I knew right away like I think this is a cool idea. I can see that it's a little bit of a weird idea. So I wanted to talk to everybody about it. and his own feeling about it like this was a man who was staring down data in some ways didn't care either way. Because you had bigger concerns. But he and he didn't get it either I was like a chat wechat by I don't get it But when he finally kind of came around to it, and when I finally demonstrated an early version to him. He really got it and he said I while like. Sounds like me those are things that actually would say or have said. And I like this idea that it could be shared with kids and grandkids in the future.
Loving Jesus Supremely (Luke 14:26)
"Luke Chapter Fourteen Verse Twenty Six. If anyone comes to me. And does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters. Yes and even his own life. He cannot be my disciple. What statement? Now we've seen this language before earlier in. Chapter? Nine. Verse Twenty three she said if anyone comes to me. So again, this is enter Dr he what it means to follow Jesus. He says he must hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters. And even his own life like what does that mean like? Elsewhere in scripture we honor Your father and mother love your wife lay down your life for your wife and your children and brothers and sisters around you like love, your family love and brothers and sisters in Christ. Certainly. I, Love Your family. So we see that in structure. So what is Jesus saying here then? And basically, and this is a powerful picture. Jesus is calling us. To love him. So. Now again, this is what it means to be a follower views. Introductory to love him so supremely. that. Even our closest relationships in this world look like hate in comparison. Do you. Do you love Jesus like that. The I love Jesus like that. Even my relationship with my wife like I. Love My wife's. I love my kids so much. Love My mom, my dad. But do I love Jesus. In a way that makes those relationships look like, hey, in comparison is what Jesus said this exact language you just used in Matthew Chapter Ten and a similar passage where Jesus said, whoever loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me like this is the greatest commandment, love God with all your heart and all your soul, all your mind, all your strength. So today reprint for the Kashmiri. Muslims. In Pakistan one point, two, million of them and So Kashmir's contested region all round that combines Pakistan India in particular but the Kashmiri Muslims are Sunni Muslims. If. Someone who is a Kashmiri Muslim. Here's The Gospel and decides to follow Jesus. The likelihood is they will totally lose their family. Like home and dad would disown them. Brother or sister disown them may even try to kill them. Like I've I've been near this region in the world I think about one man and his wife who came to know Christ. Up In this area who upon coming to know Christ were kicked out of their homes. They ended up getting married as followers of Jesus and they worked they wanted to get back to their families to be able to share the gospel with them. So they worked their way back to where they could go visit their families, their families welcomed them in or so they thought one day they were standing. There with her family and he left the husband left to go and visit with his family. And when he came back, his wife had been poisoned to death in her own home buyer own family. Jesus says. If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters. Yes and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. I. This is what it means to follow Jesus. So. God, we praise you I. Praise you that. Upon coming to faith in you. That I didn't. I didn't lose my my family on this earth. God I know that's a reality for many of our brothers and sisters in Christ. We pray we prefer strengthen them. Pray, for your help. In their lives. Got I pray for this husband. Can pictures face right now mention his name but I pray you continue to strengthen him and help him in a pulled him. God regardless. Of where we live in the world, we pray you would help us. To obey your word here in Luke Chapter Fourteen Verse Twenty Six help us to love you Jesus supremely. And we pray that this would transform affect our love for father, mother wife Children Brothers, and sisters, and even the way we look at our own life guy that we would love others for your Sake, the God we pray that all be driven by supreme love for you got refrain each of our hearts I pray this in my own heart and this over every single person who's listening to this right now. Give us Elvis to grow in love for you that would make our closest relationships in this world. Look like hate in comparison help us to love you with all her heart and all our soul all our mind, all their strength and how lay down our lives to love you more than we love our own lives and we pray that as we do this, you would use our lives to make your love known right around us and our families and our churches in our cities and to the ends of the earth among Kashmiri Muslims in bogus I was delayed out has to make your love known among more and more and more Kashmiri Muslims in Pakistan. We. Love you. We WanNa grow in our love for you even as we praise and worship and glorify you for your love for us. We pray all this in Jesus name.
Motherhood in a Pandemic with Tanya Moodie
"Tennis about your family my mom and Dad. Both. In Ottawa in Canada, that's where I was boon. and my step dad as well. He's glorious. He's been my mom now for like thirty years. So he's very much a family and and then my brothers in Toronto he's an actress well, producer director and a creator and his what's in my brother's named Andrew and his wife's name is Tanna spelt the same way wow. So are they to ten meetings? There are two Chinese, and my partner's name is Andrew. Hang on. Boo. Hello. About two nieces over there in Toronto and then so my family here I've got a twelve year old girl named willow. And that's it. Excellent. Your twelve yard is just started year seven. Finishing. Because you've, you've got one on the way. Yes. I have just got a daughter in your six and we just had like the zoom. Deputy head. Of School and so we are just entering the kind of whole mine change. Our Periods come. Online David. It's really. Out of biggest the yeah I am too bracing myself because all the whole thing like she's been fairly hippie south London local primary school. Uniforms and all sorts of serious. Big. Thing. How's your first year being I mean it's been weird obviously and yes in a cupboard but. I have to say I'm one of the lucky parents in that. If she was a younger, I would have had to be dealing with homeschooling in an active way what I mean six actually the curriculum in your six is very hard for them. Obviously, it's straightforward because led up to it but if you're going to ask I mean I can't even do kind of long division. Wants me to help with something and I'm like. Well this is how I did today in nineteen. Seventy. Spending. Here's a calculator. By hand. And then it would have had to be way more hands on. Whereas the seven will I have found? It could just be a terrible ma'am. I do admit that. It could just be because I'm a very bad person but I basically done nothing. That sounds Dreamy I've done nothing. She's been in her room. Doing actual classes they have to sign in on zoom every morning at eight thirty, eight, forty, five. Yeah they do the full schedule of classes on say wow. And she has breaks they even do pe. She's got two room. She got my Yoga Mat. She's the whole Shebang but from home. And we still have the report cards and everything. So she's kept up. Wow and I just stood back and you can just like stop smoking the garden having been. Doing. I kissing by the garden shared. A room like she's. If you tips for the transition surviving the transition well I think I had to make sure I didn't get. Involved or helicopter around her social life because for me when I realized, it was that the most important thing is that socially she feels anchored. Yeah. All this concern about. This class that class her grades teaching did it, and actually at that stage is entirely secondary. It's about her making friends because that's the only thing for my daughter that she was concerned about. Her nerves came from. Will I make any friends because you didn't know anybody at hunters to to you know what I mean. And so I got on board with her to just focus on that and not be don't talk about. Other stuff. Parents would that we would get on the kiss in a twist about. The sleepless night. Yeah it's my business. So she'd be like, Oh, I want make Koshi. Will up he? Didn't. Give, confidence in the of the first day meeting and she went to school in the first week with a stinking cold. So she was a bit kind of glassy-eyed anyway she's patient zero. I think. It's nice. To know where we'd have. Yeah. So actually that was a bit of it ended up being a bit of an openness to meet some people could be sputtering away and go to are you? Okay she went no, I'm dying apparently made them laugh. You Bronte sisters.
Of a Certain Age, with Jim Metzendorf
"L. Everyone. This is David sparks joined by my pal and yours Mr Stephen Hackett how's it going Stephen? It's good David it is. It is good. I have to say. That, our guest today really has on my toes. which will get reasons of like it's kind of like when you show up at work like the boss's boss's they're like and you feel like you can't goof off her do anything I'm going to be on my best behavior is what I'm saying that. Well, you know, well, why don't we just welcome to the show Jim Medicine Dorf Jim Nice to have you on the Mac power users summer of fun. The. Show it was so great hanging out with you guys last month that DUB DUB and San Jose. Wrong universe. Hey, guys, thanks for having me I. appreciate it. So for those who who may not know I, need to give a little back story to. With Jim a lot of you probably know Jim he's part of the sort of apple audio community online but when I came on the show now what a year and a half ago I over the editing that was kind of one of the one of my. Sticking points today was like I'll do it but I when I went the edit and I edited it for quite a long time and over time needed to hand it off to somebody else and. Jim is that somebody else will get into this but Jim at, it's a lot of podcast including a lot on relay FM and I'll tell you honestly we didn't get a single comment the week you took over because you are you're better editor than I am first of all, but it was so seamless and you're so good to work with and. That's all great. But you're also like this big MAC nurse we're GONNA get into that today. So that's when I say. I'm on my toes. So I take notes during the show via maybe places where we talk over each other we need to fix something and now gyms just here he here's all that anyways because he edits the show but now he's going to hear them in real time just how bad we are at the sometimes. Yeah. Jim. Is The all hearing ear of the relay network and I was joking with him earlier because when we record the show and I make a mistake, I can't help myself I say sorry Jim every time and we write it down. So there's probably a super cut of MEESANE. Sorry Jam like fifteen minutes long if you put it all together but the other thing that's where it is Jim here's all our shows before they released. So sometimes Jemele text me about something that happened on focus and say how's that going Wait anyway. But Jim is a pro audio engineer and Mac Nerd we talk about audio workflows and video workflows. Today Jim also has some of the things that he does a lot He's got a small business and we're GONNA, talk about that and he's a musician and we Jim and I got on the phone yesterday and we kind of worked out all of our jazz talk. So we knew ca Stephen is going to. Go crazy if I spend the whole episode talking about it but but Jim uses APPs and technology for some of his music too. So we got a lot to cover today. Jim, are you ready strapped in for this? I'm ready. Let's do it. All right. Well, give us a little background Jim, how did you get all this knowledge and get to where you right now? Oh my gosh. Well, I. The first thing to say is I'm. A person of a certain age I'm forty five to be exact. So wait wait wait. person of age. Forty five. Yeah. I used to catch myself doing that I'm not that old why? Why are we doing this to ourselves Jim? You're good. It works for some of us. Just remember what Indiana Jones says though it's not the years it's the mileage. Yeah exactly. So you know I say I'm forty five because I have been using the MAC for an awful long time. Now, at this point I got my first machine in Nineteen ninety-four. Was a quadra eight, forty, eight V. I'll try to go through the the life history of Jim as quickly as I can. So we can get to the stuff that's of use to will listeners hopefully, but I was exposed to audio and video and photography from birth more or less My Dad was a professional photographer. And he was also the recording engineer for a regional symphony where I grew up. Here in Ohio. and. So really at a at a young age, I would go with him to concerts. And by the time I was ten or twelve years old I was helping him. Rap Microphone Cables and. kind of learning. Some of the very, very basics of audio. Through through Osmosis of. Spending time with him while he was doing his thing.
Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats
Elliot Seguin: Test Pilot
"Did you get an aviation? grew up in a flying family My Dad had assessment semi to for most of my childhood than than I guess when I was pretty young for remember you bought a swift and we had swift grown up in that timeframe when you start getting into get into cars, 'cause you WanNa get into girls He's hot rod out at swift. He put a big motor in it and set some records with and. It was the perfect sendoff to will not playing with Clark's. Their place instead. That is awesome and you've had a great career after a growing up aviation as an engineer being a part of a lot of special programs aviation. How did you progress into a professional aviation career? yes. So The big thing was me and you he he was a pilot but just for So it was a big thing in the family that for me to even think about making money with aviation I didn't really have a good model for that. So establishing that model really came down to two guys. One was my uncle Berle who was a mechanic and the other was a guy named Dave Grohl who restored A spearman's and t six is just down the road from the airport where I learned to ride my bicycle. So between those two guys, they sort of established that model for how you could. Use Airplanes to to make your money rather than just spend it, and that's that the sugar trajectory that led to the rest of it. That is awesome. So l. it you have a really cool company name was Sabi flight test was Sabi erasing how did that name come about? Yeah. So we're enough we were eating Sushi right No, but So we we did come up with the name eating Sushi. We were looking for a name for the for the race plane are we had bought our cast it project that happened to be green and I was looking for a name that would tie the the color of the airplane to the branding and would also fit well on the side of the airplane. Right there's like that aspect ratio between the. Pilot's seat back bulkhead in the front of the Horizontal Stab, you WanNa kind of that space efficiently as possible So between that and you know having a lot of. It was going to be fun for fun to say this is a really engineering response. Sorry about that. But that was where we came up with with Sabi unfortunately now, we're stuck with it so. So tell us a little bit that company. Yeah. So I think you Kinda Kinda. Talk about Michael Brawl in in Dave right back in. Michigan. Right and so you sort of like I'm GonNa make money with aviation like what does that look like you're trying to figure out like how to set those sites right sort of doing bookwork get engineering degree like how's it all add up to what end up in in Muhabi at scaled right so quickly that that Idea becoming an engineer on aviation engineer on airplanes to like like, can you fly like what it's like test like that's like a really exponential curve right? We go from like WHOA can I make money with airplane to like oh? Wow. Like Mike Millville is like a high school trained like NPR slash astronaut that is the coolest thing ever, and how do you like do that right? Well. It turns out like other people coming up with that same thing at the same time. So there was like a handful of us at scale and really at the Mojave airport that we're all sort of competing for like you know who was GonNa the the visualization was that. Somebody was going to have to sit in the right seat of those spaceship flights somewhere between like yeah. Melville was going to get the first flight you know Pete or whatever but it was gonna be some flights before customers were in the right seat in the back seat and that Steve was gonna you know some get bored and they were going to put someone there and you would have a chance to be an astronaut supersonic all reversible controls rocket engine like everything flying the world's greatest Hondo. So, creating a path to make yourself competitive for that in this environment like mojave work for spaceship one before they should wonder but voyageur Mohammed was desolate. There was nobody really after spatial won the place got like flooded with talent. So. There's all these guys that are buying for my spot. I want that spot, right so I go to work as hard as I can all day but the other day there's slow there's time left the end of the day. What am I gonNA, do with it, and that's where we saw became came down to right. So whether it was with air racing or helping a friend developed with a platform whatever I can subsidize my flight test activities with a full time job, and then ideally I don't have to. Be With the Siren headed like design the airplane builder my wife working you know basically two fulltime jobs to get things done as you move to where you're doing that more and more professionally like just not happening to build the airplane is such a huge benefit independent of whether or not I get paid or not right. So if you can use that full-time job to subsidize the back end, that's where it was Sabi allows me to build that resume that hopefully makes me competitive remember you know the the sort of the end of the the civilian test pilot dream scale was when they started bringing in More and more military trust train test pilots, right military test pilot right and it's two million bucks to make him a fighter pilot. Then you drop another million to two million to make him a test pilot that's what you're competing with as a civilian, right so high, you get that experience.

You know I look through the data at beater my future. Future daughter or son can play with his job. Appreciate Tope to hear the adoration reverence that you guys have is as you kind of remember your experiences with Your Dad's for me. It was an as like prepping for the show. It was probably like the first time I really thought about it. Like as a kid, you know my father by biological father. Got Another father to reference, but my biological father was incarcerated for large portion of my adolescence, and died shortly as into adulthood, so we never had much of a relationship and I don't have any memories or any ties really there, but like I was lucky enough to have father figures through the course of my life and I think it was never like a thing of like. Oh, it's father's Day. It was just Kinda like another day another day in the house or whatever we was doing, but do remember at some point at least I. Think one of my mother's boyfriends shelter. Henry, if you ever hear this, whatever big shots him, I remember I think. mccarter mccarter tire maybe I got a basketball some little. Little cheese and I think I remember as I was an adolescent is trying to offer him. This gift I remember feeling bad that he didn't have kid and like I feel bad that he couldn't claim fatherhood, so I thought I was giving him a gift to like make him feel better about the day, but like getting older and looking back on it now. That's a tremendous. Tremendous step for him to like take care of some child is not your own, and you're not married to that woman, you know. He looked out for me to carry me like Joe me lots of things again support, but I was like worried that he can call me his son.

"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.

"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.

"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.

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.

I think he's the Guy I know who he is from breaking bad. Yeah Yeah Okay.

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.

"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. So here are the most popular things to do on father's Day so You give you give me your immediate response. Yeah good.

Number one is who invented father's Day The names are multiple choice. There Alvin Austin Sonora. Smart DODD or Julia Ward Howe. Sin Noah No from college and it's not the same person but gosh you caress fully during one thousand nine mother's Day sermon Sonora. Smart Dodd came up with the idea for father's Day as a way to honor her widowed father of six I would never. I just went with the name. It was a hundred percent gas on my bed which. Us President Made Father's Day a national holiday. Was it Calvin Coolidge Harry Truman or Richard Nixon? Truman everything happen with Truman. We're going to go with Truman wrong. Answer Sorry Cooler. Although father's Day was began and spokane Washington in one thousand nine ten it wasn't until Nineteen seventy-two said you'd Nixon signed a proclamation. So we were like one hundred year afterthought from a mother's Day mother's Day was founded on a whim kind of two right. Yeah but it was one hundred years. Yeah in two thousand and nine Charles. J sailor became the first male president of what Mothers Against Drunk Driving National Parent Teachers Association or the late J League Lecce. Let's go with little H. Okay and wrong answer. I. I wouldn't know either for the first time since it was formed The National Parent teachers the PTA elected a male president just alleged any officially took the helm in two thousand nine. Wow it's really making making strides. Aren't they glassy? I'm so happy about which famous researcher referred to Fatherhood as a biological necessity and social accident. Benjamin spock Margaret Mead or Charles Darwin. Let's go with Charles Darwin. All right and wrong answers. Sock was widely circulated. Quote is anthropologist. Margaret Mead Margaret made. Okay sorry this stuff one. What percentage of American children are raised in households without their biological fathers so house? Oh Yeah Oh yeah twelve percent twenty-three percent or thirty nine. I'M GONNA say Twenty Three. It has to be somewhat. I went in for for sure on. Get it. It's thirty nine. Thirty nine prophetic well again. Not THEIR BIOLOGICAL FATHER. 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.

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.

"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.

"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.
