The Importance of Quieting Our Kids' World
"Onto my points to ponder one integrate quiet into your world you know we including our kids live with stimulation overload visual emotional mental and psychological and many of our kids live with physical overload as well. The result of that is that our bodies are in constant fight or flight mode and this is terribly stressful on us and eventually we can't take it anymore in our bodies begin to shut down as well as our minds. This happens with our kids as well. None of us was made to live this way. It causes depression anxiety and hurts our relationships with our loved ones and friends. And that's why it's so important that we intentionally work on integrating quiet into our days to help your kids. Slow down you know. Slowing down isn't in most kids nature's and to tell you the truth. It's hard for us as parents to help our kids slowdown to because we like it. When they're busy kids want to do exactly what their friends are doing. They wanna compete. They're constantly in a drive to keep up and do better than their friends around him. This is subconscious but again it's really bad for them emotionally and physically often we parent see our kids behavior. We encourage it. We want our kids to be better than others as well and one way to help our kids pull back to allow them one extra curricular activity after school. Yes i said one. This shock some parents but remember this kids need more time with you. For emotional health than they do playing soccer dancing ballet et cetera et cetera.
A Prayer for Greater Confidence in God
"Confidence in god by meg bucher read by liam martin. Now when all the people were baptized. And when jesus also had been baptized and was praying the heavens were opened and the holy spirit descended on him in bodily form dove and a voice came from heaven. You are my beloved son with you. I am pleased luke. Three twenty one through twenty two soft thick flakes of snow accumulated an illuminated. The dark hours of morning. It's a marshmallow day my youngest daughter exclaimed. She bounded down the stairs online school cancellations and quarantines hadn't told her wonder and excitement for data to play in the snow. I'd overheard her praying for marshmallow day the night before my husband and i watched the weather and anticipated a snow day but her surprised joy overflowed onto me as her smile. Lit up the room that morning. The sky lit up the day. Jesus was baptized a day. Four told in scripture alongside so many prophecies fulfilled by christ's early life death and resurrection. John who had simply come to prepare the way for jesus baptized him. As the dove hovered. Over christ's heavenly had in. God spoke that he was pleased. Luke mentions the baptism of jesus almost in passing the new bible. Commentary explains he wants his readers to know that jesus was praying at the time and above all that he received a divine revelation. Prayer is powerful. An often overlooked daily. We rush about powering through difficulty and hardship without laying at the feet of our savior. We don't ask for help glance up to say thank you. We fail to get quiet enough to listen for in here. His encouraging guiding voice of wisdom comfort direction
What is ADHD?
"Adhd is of course divided into two parts. There's the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder attention deficit in my experiences more frequent girls. Now i don't know if the literature supports that but i would imagine it. Was these the young girls who can't focus on their work. They can't concentrate. They're not necessarily hyperactive. Hyperactivity with attention issues on the other hand. I see more commonly in boys but adhd is a common neurobiological condition. And as i said it's characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of being distracted being. Hyperactive being impulsive. It can occur at home at school in social settings and usually in all of the settings in kids have really pretty severe. Adhd i wanted to say right at the outset. One of the most brilliant adolescent and adult psychiatrist. That i know is dr sandra wetstein. He was on my podcast Earlier and he did a podcast on anxiety and kids. Which is fabulous. And you need to listen to it. But he's responsible for most of the information that i'm gonna talk about today in our adhd. So i wanted to give full credit to him. Because he's taught me so much over the years about kids and adolescent psychiatry. So adhd again. It's characterized by a developmentally inappropriate levels of all of these different things. Distractibility and impulsive hyperactivity. It's so forth. If you look at brain scans of children and adults with adhd you can actually see a difference between normal brain. Scans and adhd brain.

Right over here. I always have it in always will be right now. I live in ottawa ontario. Canada are lovely beautiful finalists nation's capital just about two years ago. I moved here. So i've been living here since the spring of two thousand and nineteen non small town but definitely not as huge overbearing as toronto. So i kind of went to paul it a midsize city not too big not too saul. Guess right. I am proud alumnus of university of toronto where i received my honors bachelor of arts degree in english history and filming two thousand eleven and also proud alumnus of the university of windsor in windsor ontario. Where i received my juris doctor law degree out winds rely and i am aware i was called to the ontario bar in two thousand sixteen. And i've been working as a lawyer ever since right now. I am proudly working in the advertising and products regulatory group at dowling wwl g. canada l. key a large multinational law firm. We have offices really all across the world. And i am currently working out of the office here in ottawa ontario canada. I started here almost two years ago with the fabulous team in ottawa My focus is primarily on regulatory compliance for food and beverage products working with really large worldwide food and beverage companies on which. I'm sure we'll absolutely dive into at my work. Also touches on regulatory compliance were a lot of other consumer products that includes cosmetics so like now premium shampoo conditioner Not health products and other general consumer products which to range from textiles clothing costume veterans bang jewelry electronics toys. Meg devices toothbrushes everything. Honestly you name it and it's probably probably regulated and there are probably rules around its marketing and advertising saying and my group where the people that do that kind of stuff and gas there are in fact warriors their lives to doing this myself included. It's so interesting because when you first post it and you said. I'm a food lawyer in my mind. I'm like okay. She goes to court in defense of like broccoli and bucatini goes like defense these foods. I don't know what against but that's the cartoon image. I had in my mind which i realize is not correct. Don't worry you break down a little bit more. I know you just kind of explained top level but give us a scenario of an example of what you're doing who are you defending. Who are your clients. And who are you kind of. I always imagined layers are fighting which i know is all of them. But who are you fighting for. And who are you fighting against louis. So it's actually really interesting. You should say that my job is not a job on. And i actually. I listened to the first on the job series episode. This season. I know you will. You will be talking to somebody. Who i think is really like a trial attorney. Kind of like getting really into the weeds there. We don't go to court. At least we hope never talk award for it Really for us it's side. It's a matter of ensuring regulatory compliance for all of these companies. And they're so. Let me give you an example. A client who is like a big. Let's say like snack. Company will send us a proposed labelled. Let's say it's a label for. They want to release like a brand new chocolate chip cookie on the market. They'll send us a label and they'll say this is our label maka. Let us know what it is that the authority problems with It like what we need to do in order to be playing that sort of thing so essentially the the. What's your walking in the grocery store you pass by a a basic. Is you picked up the box. You look at the label at some point in time in all likelihood somebody whether it's regulatory lawyer or a regulatory compliance works in regulatory compliance has read out late all and either told a food and beverage company that they have to change it or die. There's a certain risk with making a certain statement on a label. Anything and everything that is on that particular food label probably has a roll around it especially here in canada. Things are quite highly regulated. A so firewall wall. Send us a copy of a label. We need to review it for compliance. And i mean we nice. Every single thing about these product labels down to like interest tax table down to be ingredient. This what are the ingredients. Are you allowed to have these ingredients in the product. And if there's a particular ingredient that has that's not allowed to be in a product up to a certain level. Are they excessive this level. Where are they putting their nets. T. statement so those of insect ninety liters or ten grams or one and a half ounce how does it look on the label of the way that it looks on a food. Label has eroded Why where is there. Ingredients statement whereas the nutrition All of these matters. And that is literally what i do. I will get us label for a grand products. And i will have to date and pick it apart and what's hostage is grocery shopping fun for you. Are you like. I'm at work now hilarious. I love loud grocery shopping. I mean i. I could spend hours hours out of Link so an. And i mean like everywhere my my husband and i went to italy. Who read before. I started working at outline so this would have been in two thousand nineteen. He wanted to go to like about that again and he wanted to go to like museums and i just bar square walking around understanding like international food labels like before i started this job like what are what are they intricacies of these food labels and how big difference when i started especially when i started working on my husband we hated rivers resolving with because i would i would just spend hours in the grocery store just like labels and looking at new products and it's interesting though because it kind of ends up being pretty good opportunity to kind of understand where different companies are going in terms of food so you know what are the new and emerging products. That are coming out dr getting a lot of traction on and we talked to a lot of guests on i think. Is it star. Starlight us tonight issue now. She's amazing. I love all representatives and that a lot of people ask questions on about like. Oh what does it mean what is cheeto mean or what is like up spam based food or you know what is all of this stuff about like oatmeal oatmeal mill. What almond milk and all this other kind of milk all that stuff. I like to kind of keep my eye on those kinds of products because the claims that they're making for products like by In canada especially are are all regulated. And we have to make sure that that these that were kind of in tune to these new emerging product so that we can sort of adviser daily in is.

Google is changing the way ad tracking works
"Google is getting rid of third party cookies. And it's chrome browser next year and will stop selling ads based on your browsing history no more tracking all over the web to see what you're into and targeting you with ads everywhere you are. The company also said in a blog post wednesday that it won't replace cookies with some other personal tracking technology. Google is moving to a quote privacy. I add targeting strategy where your online profile will be grouped anonymously with others like you. And you'll get ads appropriate to your cohort. Meg leader is professor of communication culture and technology at georgetown. She says google itself though still has plenty of ways to get data about you. Google knows a lot about you. It has a lot of different data sources search browser right now. It also has data analytics. The point here is that. Oh my gosh. Google has so much data and they also are gatekeepers for a lot of these other sources of information. Will this move. Do anything to improve consumer privacy. If that is the banner under which. Google is selling this. Is that true in any way. Google strategy is more privacy preserving but for the consumer there is potential problems with the amount of kind of increased reliance that it places on google. It reads centers it in advertising industry. Of course it's front and center already and so critics argue that in and of itself is not great for consumer privacy like it. Doesn't i gotta be honest. This doesn't sound like it's going to help me very much as a consumer. I think that it's potentially going to help you. And i will say that this change causes a bunch of ripple effects so it causes a bunch of other changes that could potentially help the consumer. It doesn't take away. Google place in the advertising ecosystem but it does shake it up and in doing so. I think provides potential for benefits to the consumer. We're making these kind of like incremental improvements to this privacy regime. I wonder though at the end of the day isn't the primary offender targeted advertising. Like if we just got rid of that wouldn't we be able to stop a lot of these machinations around who gets to follow who where and how targeted advertising making me vulnerable to some awful. She add repeatedly also makes me vulnerable to for instance foreign actors creating bots to target me. So it's it's of course important for people to pay attention to the tools that they they use. But it's really also important to keep pressuring policymakers to pass meaningful data protection laws at the state level and at the federal level. I think so google already in this great position. It has a bunch of data about us. It has a bunch of ways to collect that data up to including companies. It owns like fit bit. What does getting rid of these third party. Cookies mean for other companies other publishers. Other ecommerce sites. How does it affect them. Well they're gonna be just as reliant on google advertising tools as they ever have been the industry. That's most likely to be disrupted by this is of course. Advertising networks that operate and are trying to compete with google and facebook for advertising dollars that operate outside of these these dominant tools and they are trying to figure out new and creative ways to track users essentially to provide value to their customers. That's different than what. Google and facebook can provide Through their advertising tools so potentially it means that our interactions on the web with other ad networks may be could get either. It seems like either more annoying. Because there will be more over attempts to sort of get our data or just sneakier i would say it's either more invasive or more annoying it will depend on how the ad networks outside of google and facebook change They're tracking strategies to see how those consent notifications will will change in the future but potentially could be as annoying as it currently is which is highly away

The insanity has also carried over to the amd's latest rate on graphics. Cards scalpers on ebay are now hockey enough for about double the normal cost.

You don't have to get the latest and greatest graphics card can still work with what you have or you can forget buying a pc and building it from scratch and just get one prebuilt to some extent.

I think you know oprah's going to go into going to ask even though they're friends they're going to be you know. I'm sure they'll know the questions that are coming. She's not going to surprise them. But i think it's things that everyone wants to know and I think megan is going to tell the truth. They've already departed from the crown. So what am i. The only person that is terrified for this interview air. Yes which way well. Here's the thing. It's a ninety minute interview. Ninety minutes gives the world a lot of footage to dissect minute by minute minute and she just announced her pregnancy. I think we're so happy for her. She went through such a terrible loss. She shared that with us. And i feel like she's inviting negative energy into this space because at the end of the day this is a lose lose for them. And i'll tell you. Why if oprah asked them about will and kate or about megs it and they don't talk about it right then. We're all going to speculate if they do talk about it. That breaks all protocol that goes against the palace like there is no turning back after that moment so i am nervous because i just don't see the upside of this interview for them other than the fact that listen people want closure and you wanna get your truth out there and maybe that's what this is for meghan but i just want all the good things for them and i just want all the good energy and i don't want people to dissect this view and be mean to them. They've had enough and they have had enough but at the same time. I think they've got pretty thick skin at this point. They're used to that. I think that they can entrust oprah in the sense of how she's going to ask the question. It'd be delicate about it. That's why they're they're good friends. Riley your neighbors. You know all of those things. So i think you're right they're gonna do an interview. It could really hurt them either way. But i think it's okay with oprah oprah though is not going to get there still royalty even though they left the they're still not going to be there because they like don't like this off come on. It's gonna be very pc crew. Yeah everything's gonna be very safe. We're not gonna get this spill all like here's how i truly feel however it will probably the most open they've ever been because there is no pressure left. They're just putting the nail the conference. We're going to tell interview so you'll be there really done because i think and the queen put you on the most wanted list at the royal hundred percent. And here's what's at risk for harry. So he does have honorary military titles. Still they're saying that with his participation in this interview those will be stripped from him he along with all of the patronage is that are still left because new york santa clara son sort of agenda. There's something they're launching. There's something with net flicks. I mean when you get a interview. With oprah winfrey oprah has not been doing these interviews in a while so when she picks one person or person that we all want to. Everyone is what. I don't care if they say the abc's for ninety minutes we're all going to be like. Oh look she said yes only going to be watching it engaged in. It gives us an insight. Just that's why the crowd is so popular hundred percent. I don't think you're right. They're not going to say anything. That goes against the crown or give any family secrets away. But i think we will enjoy the interview and oprah will ask questions that will make them answer. You're going to have to answer oprah's not gonna just sit there now and just like she's a masterclass in an interview. Even you think you aren't going to answer. The question oprah will get it out of. There is no way that you can. I mean she's like a force. There's no way that you can resist. I've got the data said. Cbs is ready. I'm excited

I was put on this earth to do more than nor and quite frankly. I wasn't delivering like i was falling short. You know i would. I would leave a world of confidence in clarity and i would go home to a world of chaos and i justified it on the provider or i i have to work to be able to be the husband or father but i knew that was a lie like i do. I was just totally lying. Is i knew that i could win at home like i was winning at work or i should win home like i wasn't. I was winning at work and losing home. And that wasn't okay. So i love what i do but i love my family even more and actually in it happens that one day i decided what if i family. What if what. If the most valuable business i will ever own ever operate.

That business people need and that parents need you know so So the book starts out with one of the most our editors said it was the most compelling first line that she has read in a decade. And it's halfway up my driveway. I realized i didn't want to go home. And you don't know how many people i've met that. Say that's me like i've had that. Experience of coming oregon saying adjust.

"Or worries and they play on that so i would I would try to not let them know that you're worried or nervous and don't talk to him about You know not being so strong or or or being afraid also stop feeling embarrassed about him start treating him like an a normal boy and again. Quit trying to tell them to be brave. His feelings will work themselves out on their own and he'll be fine My next question is n. P. dear dr meaker. My fifteen year old daughter went to see her doctor for some hip pain. I recently learned that during the appointment. Her doctor talked with her about menstrual cramps and suggested her going on birth control pills. I learned about this while reading her visit summary. I don't my daughter on birth control pills for cramps. Is this something you would ever recommend for fifteen year old well n. p. You need to find a new. Another pediatrician her doctor. First of all should allow you or her father. Whoever is accompanying her to the doctor's appointment to be in the room the first half of the appointment of course when she's being examined it's natural to excuse apparent from the room when a daughters fifteen but her pediatrician needs to hear your side of the story. And get your take on. What's going on in her life and also to hear some of the concerns. You have which may be very different from your daughter's concerns also. Physicians should never recommend this type of treatment to your daughter alone. Birth control pills and other prescriptive pills are a serious matter and they really are more of your decision than your daughter's decision because she's underage There are some instances where we do. Use contraceptives for mental cramp but the cramps must be so severe that they interfere with girls daily life and They can also be a pretty good treatment for dimitrios. In addition girls who have constant bleeding and have difficulty getting an under control. And those are other instances where we might use oral contraceptives but giving a girl. Oral contraceptives at fifteen is no small matter. And if i were you i'd make an appointment with another pediatrician. And make sure to go in the room with your daughter dear. Dr meaker my question for you today is how do i make a situation right. I've come to the realization. That i mean and i am just like my nasty father and my kids have lived with me being mean for many years. How do i fix it. I've always had a short fuse. And i'm a loving and kind mom and i always apologize when i don't act nice to my kids. I was helping my son this morning with his computer. We're both a little frustrated. And i wound up making my frustration clear by the sound of my voice and then i heard my daughter say to the dot. Then i heard my daughter say to the dog. Don't ever be a mom. You will regret being amman and it hit me. I didn't even realize what. I was appearing to be like to my kids. How do i fix this Well s p. I want to tell you something that you're seventy five percent there. You have recognized at your anger out of control. You know whenever week become parents we bring into our parents. Parenting what.

"Okay. So let's jump into some of the wonderful questions that i've gotten from you. Dear doctor meg. My wife. And i have four kids recently. We've had a lotta disagreements about how to parent and it's driving us apart. My wife allows our four year old to sleep in our bed. And i moved to another room. It just feels like we're not compatible anymore. What should i do. Well i want to tell you. K b just gonna use your initials instead of your name. Your wife needs to get your four year old out of the bed and you need to be back in your bedroom. This is really inappropriate and very unhealthy for your marriage. Not only that. It's bad for your child sending your child a terrible message. I feel that you guys need to come together on some big parenting issues which you know and tackle these long before you consider separating or getting divorced. I know you're considering divorce. But i think this is at this point. This is much more harmful for your kids. Here's what i would do. I would tell your wife that. There's some parenting things that she's good at and that you want to be sure to support as your kids get older then i would ask you to write down four five parenting issues. That she feels are most important to her to Succeed at as your kids grow older. Then tell her you will support these but that you need her to support your four or five most important parenting issues. In other words you have to negotiate with her. And i talk about this a lot. But it's very important for parents to do or not the same page with discipline co-parenting And many other issues. I really encourage you to find a marriage. Counselor as well to work through your issues and honestly. I'm not so sure that these much parenting issues as either personality ones or merita ones. Here's a question from amy. Dear dr meaker. I need your advice on my seven year old son. I'm embarrassed that he doesn't seem to be very brave. I took him to the doctor for a small problem and he was so afraid of the doctor hurting him he would not let him touch his foot. He was crying hysterically. He behaves in similar ways when he needs vaccinations and seems to have a real phobia of needles. I need him to be brave. I even told him that. I would give him a special treat. If he behaved at the doctor he also doesn't seem to be very brave. When it comes to books or movies he seems scared. And when i wanted to read a book with scary characters in it like witches. He says no. I'm afraid i'm raising a wimp. First of all aiming. I think you're over worried. You have a very sensitive son. And that's fine you know when he doesn't want to hear or watched stories with gary characters in. That's perfectly normal. Nanny boys his agent even older. Don't like scary stories or books or movies. They just don't tell you the other thing too is i'm wondering if he's acting a little Less brave when your around. And the next time he needs something like a vaccination or need to go to the doctor. It would be very helpful for his dad to take him because a lot of times kids sense a parent's concern or worries and they play on that so i would I would try to not let them know that you're worried or nervous and don't talk.

"This question is from Jennifer. She says, help my son is six an only child and we are struggling with him having any desire to appreciate be grateful or even take care of his stuff toys closed etcetera I've tried taking things away. I've tried spanking talks, timeouts, threats nothing works. He simply thinks if he breaks or ruined something that there's more of it coming or that it isn't a big deal, we have had trouble with his obedience to his response when busted is always but I forgot. I'm feeling defeated that my only child is already acting. So entitled I'm so close to giving everything he has a way and making him earned toys but no more than a couple. Well, first of all, at six if he's six. Do not give up Jennifer. You can absolutely turn his behavior in his gratitude a round. It's not going to be as hard as you think. Your son has learned. That, if he breaks or ruin something something follows, he's given something back kids don't think that up. So I would ask there's a pattern that's been established in your home, and this is an unusual when you have an only child in the home, you really want him to have things that he enjoys every parent does and you also want that child to be appreciative and grateful for everything they have. But most six year olds just aren't i. mean that takes a long time to appreciate so. Stop giving him things don't give him things and take them away. Stop giving him things make him earn things stop the spanking stop the talks stop the timeouts and the threats. If they're not working stopped doing them have him earn toys have him earn whatever it is he's GonNa get. He can get some things on his birthday but other than that he needs to earn and you know maybe he just needs to earn fifty cents to buy something or it is. If you make him work for those things, he's going to be more grateful for them. The other thing that is can be very important to do is to help him and he's not too young to help him at six years of age to start thinking about other kids. So I would do something like this honey do you know? Of any of the kids in your class that are struggling with something do you think there are other kids or even adults in our area who might not have enough food who might not have enough clothes? Well, if you can't think of anybody I will help you find another six year old in our area who need a coat who may need some shoes and why don't you and I go go will shop together. We'll pick something out and we'll make sure that child gets them and by teaching him to serve. You are teaching him to be grateful for what he has because he'll feel good about serving. He'll stop thinking about himself and his stuff as much anthill also see that compared to other people. He's got a whole lot of good stuff in his life. So make him earn things stop giving him things if he breaks her ruins them and stop giving him things just randomly. and. Stop all the stuff that you're doing. No spanking talking timeouts not working and start to look around to find ways for him to serve other kids or other people. I really think within a short period of time you're gonNA see a huge transition in him. This question comes from Dad Jason he says hi Dr Meg. We've been parenting are nineteen year old to is living with us. What do you advise if he insists on isolating himself in his room only watching TV doing his homework at a minimum playing video games and being rude or snarky to everyone in the House we've encouraged getting a job exercising praying etcetera we have. been leading by example without saying much and we're trying to be respectful but he's not interested. He seems depressed an complacent and refuses to be positive or show any grit towards being productive. It's infuriating any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Well Jason. You're not alone I think a lot of parents are in the situation in truth he has a problem and you have a problem. Your son sounds depressed. Now he's either depressed because he's in his room watching TV and doing nothing or his depression led him into that. My sense is that he's depressed because he's been doing that he can't get himself out of this. So you need to you don't suggest that he get a job. He has to get a job, and if he doesn't get a job, he needs to find a place to live because their rules in your home. He's being rude and snarky because he's miserable and he's mad at you because he's miserable because he doesn't respect you. He doesn't see US setting any rules in your home and and trying to be respectful for him is. However it's not nearly enough because he's probably not paying attention to the way you're acting he's only paying attention to himself. So here's what I would do. I would sit down with him and I would make I would set out. Five rules that your your house rules that he has to live with, and if he doesn't live with those house rules because your home, it's not his home. He really is old enough to have home on his own even if he's in school, these are the five rules that he has to live by if his going to have the privilege of staying in your home, this is going to be tough for you and I'll tell you why because you have accommodated him. You have really enabled him to live horrible life. Okay. Watching television and isolating himself in his room can be addicting. Video Games are addicting highly addictive. I've seen kids that will play boys will play ten hours a day. So your son, if you will is addicted to a horrible lifestyle, he can't get himself on his own. So here's the rules that I would say. I would say son here the five things that we need you to do in order for you to continue to have the privilege of living in our home I, you need a job of at least thirty hours a week in the summertime it has to be forty hours a week he's a grownup you have to talk to him like he is a grown-up second? After you had that job, you need to take x percent of your.

"A room all by herself. But that days not gonNA come for at least six months or a year so I try putting your brother's room second. Try Putting in your Room on a mattress. Don't let her sleep in bed with you telling her not to be afraid. Giving her coping skills will not make any difference at all. She's four. She can't develop those and again when she's alone in her room. She feels very frightened because she feels that. You're a mile away so try to do those things. I really think you're going to see her settled down. Our next question is from. She says my husband and I have very different parenting styles. I'm very authoritarian and strict and my husband airs on the side of passivity. We can't seem to agree on anything so the kids are running amok and we are mad at each other frequently. How do we compromise here emily? You're not alone so many parents have this situation because it's rare to find two parents who really strike middle ground and they parent from authoritative posture. Not Authoritarian. I just wrote a on disciplined with courage and kindness where I teach parents how to move from being too passive or to authoritarian right to the middle. Here's what usually works with couples who are having such a big discrepancy in their parenting styles. Sit Down with your husband. Men Do well negotiating okay. They don't do well being told what to do Being nagged at and and having you fight with them men will listen to you if they feel respected so you need to sit down with your husband and say honey you know what you're really good dad and I want to do whatever I can to encourage you to be the best education beat our kids and I want to be a really great mom. So here's what I'd like to know and you know we. We disciplined very very differently. But we gotta come to some agreement on a few things would I would like you to do is right down the top three or if you can get it right five. That's the top three to five sang's that are most important for you to see through in your parenting that you believe will help. Our kids become great adults. So what are the top five things that are most important to you to carry out in your parenting and once I understand those then I can get on the same page with you and I can support you in those things again? You can use three or you can use five then when he writes those down and he sees that you're willing to agree. Andy feels heard and respected. You say to him I will support you but I would also like you to support me on my top three things so if you can each come to some type of compromise say you will respect him and support him in carrying through with the those top priorities that he has for raising your kids. Chances are very good that he is going to support you in your three things. Now you're not GonNa agree on everything you don't need to come to the table on everything. But if you get your top six cumulatively and work on those together you're GonNa find that you'll stop fighting so much you'll stop being mad at each other so much and you'll be able to parent much better together. That's what I've seen work in couples really very well but again you need start the conversation you need to show respect. You need to be sincere in supporting him. And then once you agree then you turn things and say I would like support from you here as well. This question comes from Sarah. Hey Dr Meg. I have a question about handling the two teens in my house. Due to covert and quarantine restrictions. We kind of lapsed on the rules technology in bed times now. That summer is coming on and we're not sure what things will look like. I want to have some sort of healthy routine set in place but the attitude. I'm getting from. My kids is unreal. I know that are sliding on. The rules has been a factor in their behavior towards us. But I want to find a way to fix it. What do you recommend Sarah? You're not GonNa like what I'm going to say. But you need to hear it you need a backbone of Steel Okay. Your your teenagers are running. Rip shod over you. They're driving the bus. You need to get back in the driver's seat. So here's what you do you sit down with your kids and say you know what things are getting out of control. We're GONNA make some different rules here. The top three rules and you make it very clear they have to speak to you respectfully and you tell they don't even need to be told. What respectful speech sounds like you need to set. Tell them that there's going to be retained. They can't stay up past ten o'clock at night. They can't use her phone or beyond video games for eight hours a day. So you set some top three rules. That will help you set a routine in place. I would include chores and not and I would include work. If they're too young to work outside the home they should be working at least twenty hours a week outside the home if they're old enough if they're not old enough then they need to do chores around your house They need to mow the lawns. They need clean the bathrooms. They need to do laundry That makes them feel good about themselves. Because you have to realize kids who are behaving like. Your teenagers are miserable okay. But they don't know how to get out of their misery so you need to take charge and do that for them. You start with three of your top rules that you need your kids to do and again I would include working there and the minute the minute they fail to do what you've told them to do. You take their phone away and you lock it somewhere for one week or you take their video games and you lock them somewhere for one week. I guarantee you when you find what it is that they really wanted. Every child has an Achilles heel. Some kids want their video game. Some kids want their phone. Some kids want their allowance. Some kids want to be with France. Every child has something they really want. When you find what that is and you tell them when you break these rules and cross that line. This gets taken away. I'M NOT GONNA yell. I'm not gonNA scream do it. And that's where the backbone of steel comes in because if your boys if your kids are running the show they are not gonNA believe you. They will push push push you to get you to change their minds so the minute you see them disobey a rule. Stay out too late. Whatever the rules are. You don't have to yell or scream you immediately. Take whatever it is that they really want away. I guarantee you Sarah you do this for months. Your kids are going to realize you're serious. There's no messing around. And when you implemented consequence no matter what you do do not renew gone that if you take the video games away for one week or two after a couple days.

"And it it ups the the anger or the frustration that they feel it so it comes out more strongly. You're probably getting angry and yelling because you take bad behavior as a sign that you're a bad mom and often. There are a lot of feelings that go into yelling when we respond to our kids that way so the most important thing is you have to work on your yelling and one of the best ways to do. This is to not take your three year olds behavior personally. He's a stubborn kid He sounds like a volatile kid. And this isn't necessarily because of something that you're doing secondly I really would try to get away from the spanking because when you have a child who hits and screams and his yelling spankings just an escalate things what I would encourage you to do. Is the minute he starts to yell and scream or get out of control over to him you grab him and you hug him tightly and you take him to his room and you sit with him holding him sort of in a bear hug and till he quiets down you know he responds to You being serious about getting him under control so you need to work on that so in other words you you grab him you hold him very tightly you take him to. As Roma you sit in his bed and you hold him until he stops every single time he starts hitting an acting terrible. Do this over and over incurred your husband to do it and I promise it will help. Get His anger and yelling and hitting under control. Next question is from Rosie. She says I have two teams fifteen year old boy and a thirteen year old girl. I'm having major issues with my son. He does not follow rules and he has not doing well in school. He's disrespectful to all of us at home. My husband doesn't like to discipline him at all and won't allow me to do so either. Instead he pretty much rewards his bad behavior he never takes away his phone or online gaming he lets them watch. Tv All day long until late at night. And he doesn't make him do schoolwork he allows him to be out with friends or my son will just go out. Even if we don't allow it. I left our home about two weeks ago because of disrespect and the lack of unity and respect between my husband and I. I'm considering a divorce. I believe I can help my son much better. If I'm not in a relationship how can I help my son to get better now before it's too late? Great Question Rosie. And I'm sorry you're in such a difficult situation. Your problem is not your son. Your problem is your husband. I'm confident that if your husband would start to lay down some rules be consistent and get consequences whenever your son. breaks Israel's across boundary. He would start behaving well really very quickly. So my question is what can you do? You can only change you. You can't change your husband and so what you need to do and it's GonNa take a long time to work because as long as your husband's acting the way he is he's going to sabotage any good discipline. You put in place so when your son is with you. The most important thing you can do is to stand firm have backbone of steel Make your son follow your rules when he's at Your House. But here's the problem if he doesn't like what's going on at your house he's GonNa run back to Dad's house so this is going to be a real problem for you. Unfortunately the horses out of the Barn. Your son is already showing disrespect his already acting badly. And I think that your best bet in changing his behavior is going to happen when he's older and other words when he's in his early twenties and he can think things through well and he can understand. How bad behavior today results in really bad things in the future. But I'm concerned that as long as your husband's doing this to him. Whatever you do isn't really gonNA take hold because your son is looking up to your husband as his role model not you. The only reason is doing it is because he likes what he can get away with I do think that you're GonNa get better response from your son if you're not with your husband when your implementing some type of discipline I don't advocate divorce. I think that it's perfectly fine if you stay separated because you need to try to re establish some rules with your son and Try to get him to respect you. But again you gotta be toughest nails doesn't mean you need to be mean but you need to have him come to your house. You need to lay down some very simple guidelines like You can't be out after ten o'clock night and if you're out after ten o'clock at night I take your phone. Lock it away and you start to do that. He is going to have major temper tantrums. If you can withstand the temper tantrums continue to give serious consequences to a couple of rules. You don't need change all of his behaviors at once. You can get somewhere with him now but you may have to wait till he's older to get him to respect you. Our next question comes from Foggia. She says I write to you because my four year old daughter is very fearful and I think anxious lately however. I'm wondering if it has to do with being quarantined for so long. She has started to yell if she is left by herself. On the top floor and the rest of us are downstairs. She says she is scared. Of Darkness and thunder to the biggest problem is that she has started to wake up in the middle of the night saying that. She's having nightmares the first few days. We let her sleep in our bed but after two weeks. We all feel sleep deprived. We have tried bringing a mattress and letting her sleep by my side but she insists she needs to be closer to me or at least make some eye contact. She has been sleeping with her brother. While we transition her toddler bed to a big girl bed so we always reassure her that she has never alone also concerned that she has developed a bad habit of coming to my room every night because when we walk her back she yells and cries and when we give in and bring her over. She immediately smiles and falls asleep quickly. I can see some anxious behaviors and I understand her fears. But how do I know if this has become manipulation? We'll finally I can tell you right off the bat that your daughter is genuinely afraid. She's not manipulating you. She has reason to be afraid because in her mind. She's very very far away from you and I can tell you that even older kids don't do well sleeping on a separate floor from their parents. As a matter of fact I've seen kids that move from a small home to a big home which the parents think they're gonNA love and kids hate it because you're so far away from their parents so I need to do is make sure she sleeping on the same floor that you are personally. I'd let her sleep with her brother for as long as she wants to if she doesn't want to do that. I'd let her sleep on a mattress in the corner of your bedroom. And until she gets over her fear. This is genuine. Fear it's not manipulation and when a child's fearful you WANNA quell those fears because she'll learn not to trust you if you don't you also don't want this to turn into a larger anxiety issue which will happen if she feels frightened. You don't meet her needs you. Don't calmer down can't trust you. Then she'll develop more anxiety sleep issues in someone who's for will resolve. There will be a day when she'll sleep in.

"You don't make your bed, and then you tell them things and you can be disrespectful. So here's the deal. I'm gonna tell you to do these things one time from now on and if you don't do them the first time, I tell you. Here's what the consequence is going to be you won't have your cell phone. You won't get together with friends. You can't go to sports practice. Whatever it is that your kids really want to do is thing you're going to use as the consequence, and they may be different from each of your kids may. Maybe you're thirteen year old daughter loves social media and her phone she take her phone away. Maybe your ten year old boy loves to play soccer. He doesn't play soccer for a week. This sounds harsh. But you've got to communicate to your kids. You're not gonna nag you're not going to yell. You're serious. Basically, you have to nag your kids because your kids aren't listening to you. And they don't take anything you do seriously. So when you get down to business, they'll start listening as far as your daughter, go back through, my blogs and read about depression and girls, I've written a lot about depression. And it's really important to recognize it in your kids. Thirteen is a horrible age for girls, your daughters becoming a woman girls are getting meaner, boys. Make fun of them. There's a lot going on in school. So what I encourage you to do. And I think you're really pretty in tune with already I would try to spend some one on one time with your daughter once or twice a week taker out to dinner or take her out to breakfast or take her out shopping alone. On ask her some questions about what our friends are doing. And then listen to her these aren't teaching times these aren't times when you're going to try to change your mind the times, you're spending with your daughter are to show her you really enjoy her company, and you wanna listen to what's going on in her life. You wanna hear her heart? If you find out some things in your daughter's life that are very concerning. Like, she is very depressed. She's thought about dying. She feels that her friends don't like her, and she is very depressed over that. You need some professional help best thing to do go to your pediatrician alone talk to him or her and say, I'm worried about my daughter being depressed. What can you do to help me and any good pediatricians going to give you a lot of help? That's where I encourage you to go my next questions from Sheni. Dear doctor Meg I'm a mother of four boys. Thirteen ten six and three. I feel that I have very well rounded boys with one exception. My thirteen year old is so. Mean to his brothers from name calling to hitting shoving to being very demeaning. It's a constant struggle. My husband's a pastor, and I'm an educator, and we work really hard to be good examples to him we work on being respectful to our children, and we have high expectations. What are some strategies we can do to encourage him to be kind with his words and actions to those that he lives with I don't want the younger boys to resent him when they get older. And I want him to learn to use self control even when others annoy him or aggravate him. Well, Shunyi you're not in an unusual situation. It isn't uncommon at all for one sibling out of two or three or four to be meaner than the others. But here's the bottom line. Your thirteen year old son is a bully now. I know you're trying to be understanding encouraging and you're trying to give him positive reinforcement. And that's very very important you need to keep your standards high. You need to teach..

"Going with your boys when they're at your home. It's great that you have. Them. Most of the time seventy percent of the time. I would encourage you to set down some rules and tell them things like this. When you're in my home, you can't speak like this. You can't do this. And if you do those things here's what's going to happen. You are going to have to go to bed early electron IX are taken away. And when you say those things you've really got a follow through. It's going to be hard for you. Because chances are they don't have to follow these these rules dad's house, that's not atypical a divorce situation. But you need to you need to continue steady sound discipline. Here's one thing. I want to encourage you, you can't change your ex husbands manipulation of the boys. And they probably on the surface won't wanna be with you. But deep down your the one that makes them feel safe. So eventually as the boys get older, they're gonna see through the whole situation. They're going to know what's going on. And they will want to be with you. Ultimately because you are the safe person and the real loving person because you offered discipline. Should you? Tell them the whole truth about their dads threat against you know, the boys already know that their dad hates you and feel strongly against you. If however he makes threats towards them, you have to deal with that in an open fashion. But I really don't think that kids need to know everything that's going on between parents. It'll scare them. It'll change their relationship with you and their dad, and I would just keep that private my next question comes from Kim. Hi, Dr Meg I wanted to know if you have any thoughts are suggestions on putting your son into kindergarten at age five instead of six I live in a county where several parents always hold back their children. But I'm torn on the pros and cons. Well, kim. Here's the thing twenty years ago kindergarten kindergarten. But now, man. Many kindergartens are like first grade kids feel a lot of pressure. They have to work really hard to have to concentrate, really hard. And a lot more is expected of young kids in kindergarten than it was several years ago. So if the trend in your area is to hold kids back and not start them in kindergarten until they're six. That's what I would do. I'm not particularly a fan of it. I think that we need to have kindergarten kindergarten. I think the kids are pushed too much, but that's the way life is and many schools. So I would encourage you to hold your son back and start him at if he's six 'cause that's what a lot of the people doing and you don't want him to be behind. My next question is from LA Christian. I have a seventeen year old son who has had ADD since the first grade, my son is seventeen now one of his friends showed him a picture of a naked girl that was one of their classmates, and he told his friend. He didn't wanna look at it. He was called gay by this friend, his friend. Was joking about the comment, and he later apologized to my son. But this sent my son in a whirlwind of emotional struggle. He began questioning his faith thoughts of being afraid that he would turn gay. He struggling with a lot of different things went to accounts and was started on Lexa pro his grades have always been initiate school..

"Her do anything that she can to keep her feeling normal. Parents who I've seen who have chronically ill children that have worked in keeping their kids from having this poor me attitude and feeling that they're that someone's feeling sorry for them. All the time. Our parents who really continued to do everything normally with the child, and when I say that I'm not just talking about activities. I'm talking about discipline. I'm talking about restrictions. I'm talking about you know, she acts up that you have these same expectations for your daughter that you do for any other children. And that's the best thing that you can do to keep her from having a poor me attitude. It really is important that your husband not treat her differently than the other kids. I e not give her too many toys because he is treating her like he really feels sorry for her. So I encourage you to sit down and talk to one another and say, what can we do to communicate? Our daughter that we don't feel sorry for her that we feel towards her just like we do all the other kids, and again talked your pulmonologist about real risk and how to avoid very serious risk and let the rest go. Here's another question from Rachel their doctor. Meg I'm in a bind with my sons. They need discipline rules and limits, they often tell me that dad says something and its ally. And I have to be extremely careful not to bad mouth him the courts granted me sole legal custody. But he still has twenty nine percent of their time. My ex husband has contacted people to have me killed any turns everything against me. And the boys believe what he says they only partly obey when they obey me. And my first line of discipline is sending them to bed early. The second line of discipline is with electronics and screens. I need an effective discipline to deter them from getting into arguments with me over things they. Don't need to be a part of. I was told by a psychologist with boys in the room that I can shut them down and teach them to not engage with me. And it's wrong that I don't tell them everything. Their father still has the power of control and knows how much he uses the boys to control me the boys. Tell me I'm selfish for having the majority of their time. But the truth is it would be selfish. I gave them up and disappeared for my safety. I'm the parent that isn't interested in only being their friend and letting them be in charge. The court order parenting class tells you not to talk to your children about certain things we did move over the summer, and I know it's a change, but parents should help their children, not cause more pain. But my ex husband won't stop. And he's trying to take them away. From me. It's heartbreaking that my boys. Just don't wanna be with me. Rachel you're in a very tough situation. First of all, it's your safety and your boy safety is of. Utmost importance now, it's really important that you seek out legal help to the police and your lawyer and the courts about the threats that your husband has made to your physical safety if he's made those threats towards the boys as well. And I wouldn't be surprised if he does because people that make those threats against a previous loved one can easily do them against a child as well. So that's really important, and you need some sound advice from the law and the legal system. Secondly, the fact that your boys don't wanna be with you is a result of their father, really manipulating them. And he's doing this obviously to drive them away from you. There isn't much you can do about his manipulation of the boys. The most important thing is to remain steady and constant presence in their lives. You need to keep healthy discipline.

"Subscribe today. My first questions from Abby, dear Dr Meaker, my husband, and I have taken in three children that are friends of our family the youngest to our boys. And my question is about how much they eat. And if it's normal. I try to be careful they don't eat much sugar as they're already energetic, and hyper just an example of what they can eat in one sitting for breakfast, four fried eggs toast in a banana today for lunch. The nine year old had five hotdogs with the buns apple slices and chips. The six year old also had four hotdogs, and I'm not planning on cutting back their food because if they're truly. Hungry. I want them to eat. What can I do? Well, I'll tell you Abby. That's a great question. What I would encourage you to do is try to figure out why these boys are eating so much if they're very thin, and they are in fact, hungry I would just let them eat. If you find that they're beginning to gain weight, and they get a little on the chubby side. I would definitely cut back. The other thing is psychologically, they may want to overeat for several different reasons. One. It could be a compulsion that they learned in their family of origin. The other reason they could be eating so much as because they are not used to having regular meals. If they really were having a hard enough time in their family of origin that you had to take him in chances are they felt very insecure about with where the next meal was coming from. So that may be a reason that they're over eating to basically make sure they get three good meals if they want eat two or three servings as. Long as they're not getting overweight. That's great. I wouldn't encourage you to give them a lot of snacks. You wanna teach them that they wanna fill up and so that they're hungry again for the next meal by next question's from Brittany. Dear doctor Meg my three year old has cystic fibrosis, she's incredibly healthy, which is wonderful. My problem is this. My husband buyers way too many toys because he feels she's been dealt a bad hand. He gets mad at me when I do extra breathing treatments. And when I don't let her play in mud or swim in lakes. He says she's gonna hate me when she gets older because I'm keeping her from being kit. He complains about how inconvenient her treatments are. And how it sucks that? She has to go through all that. He purposely doesn't say most of the stuff in front of her. But I don't know how to handle this. How do we keep her from having a poor me attitude? Well brittany. That's a great question. Cystic fibrosis is a very serious. Disease as you know. And she does need a lot of extra care a lot of extra treatments. Tell your husband. It's really important that she get those extra treatments because she needs to breathe. Well, you know, insisted fibrosis her lungs can get closed up. She doesn't oxygen. Well, and that's gonna make her feel really bad. Also, it can make her more prone to infections. Let's talk about handling her with kid gloves. I would sit down and have an honest talk with your pulmonologist. And I'm sure you have one you wanna make sure that she can live as normal life as possible. So you wanna treat or not like a sick child, but like a healthy child if she has siblings by and large letter, do and her siblings or doing you obviously don't want to put an a situation where she's gonna get an unusual infection because that's very hard for kids with cystic fibrosis. So I would sit down with your pulmonologist and say, what are the things that I really need to keep her from because otherwise I wanna..

"Let's get social i want to hear from you and interact with you you can connect with me on facebook twitter and instagram at meg meeker md or if you have a question please send it to me at ask meg at magny cours m d dot com again that's ask meg at meg meeker m d dot com today i have a question from blair who writes dear dr meg my son just turned four and he snaps at the drop of the hat runs to his room slam stores it cetera when i go and try to talk to him he ignores me or gets more mad and at times he starts to bite his clothes or hid himself i believe he just doesn't know how to express his anger we're trying so hard to talk softer and avoid confrontation and discipline in a way that doesn't set him off is this wise how should we handle this situation we want him to know when he's doing wrong that it's wrong but we don't want to run his life with an iron fist blair great question and i'm so happy that you wrote in you have identified something very important in that is your four year old son is exhibiting behavior that really isn't normal biting his clothes and hitting himself is not normal for an upset four year old boy to do the fact that he's doing these things tells me that he's very afraid or he's very upset perhaps ease afraid to express himself to you which seems kind of ironic because you said he's having meltdowns and he's slamming the door and he's running to his room but my sense is he's afraid and he doesn't know how to adequately express himself could he be afraid to be angry in front of you.
