Fresh update on "meg" discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"Band graphs presented by our Patreon supporters. I have been on very good ringers joined by neg rally of fangraphs. Hello. Before we proceed any further, we should put people's minds at ease, opossums, very rarely carry rabies. So good to know, you know. It is good to know. Yeah. Just in case anyone was waiting with bated breath since the end of our last episode, that's how we'll start this baseball podcast by talking about opossums very rarely carrying rabies. Sometimes I think the podcast needs a previously on segment. So someone would say less time on effectively wild. And then there'd be a clip of me mentioning that in addition to a pack of feral cats, pack of cats, clowder of cats. Is that what you say for? I think that's a word. The Oakland coliseum now features opossums in the press box, and then there'd be a clip of you wondering whether opossums carry rabies, and then a clip of me not knowing, and then everyone would be up to speed. I guess that's what we just did here. I'm glad that they don't transmit or carry a rabies. Did you know this is terrible that last year, 5 people in the United States died from rabies and that it was the highest number in a decade according to the CDC? I did not know that. No. I didn't know that either. And then I read a Jenny gross piece in The New York Times, and I was like, that seems like a bummer. So, you know, what's the symptoms start? It's too late. Yeah, I actually got the rabies vaccine at some point when I was a kid because I was in a house up state and there was a bat flying around. And as far as I know, I was not bitten by the bat, but you never know, and we figured, well, why not? Just in case I was bitten by the bat, you don't want to get rabies, easier to get the vaccine. So yeah, I guess that inoculation has worn off by now. So I'm probably not protected, however, I'm not often around rabid or potentially rabid beasts. And opossums, I could walk around next to with impunity, seemingly, so in the outro to that last episode, I did explain the difference between possums and opossums, such as it is. And I thought that would save us some emails, and I'm sure it did. But I forgot to follow up on the rabies question. So we did receive several emails about that matter. Yeah, we sure did. We sure did pursue some emails. You know, I think that I'm taking this as our listeners just being, well, in addition to curious as human beings and possessed with information that I don't have, which has been to our benefit at times, right? That they just care about us, and each other, right? They don't want. There's enough in the world to fret over and I am a famous fretter, so they were probably just worried that I was going to worry. And fret over a rabies and now I don't have to at least when it comes to blossoms. Yeah, I don't think anyone wanted to pass them to get a bad rap. They're actually seemingly a misunderstood and unappreciated mind even. Maligned. Yeah, talking about the North American possum slash opossum that is, which is maybe not cute by traditional societal standards of animal cuteness, but is useful is the lone North American marsupial, so it's sort of interesting and it also does a lot of pest control and it actually eats ticks and other nasty things that can infect us with bad diseases because apparently opossum is pretty resistant to Lyme disease as well. So ineffectively while tradition of whenever we bring something up that seems sort of esoteric, we get someone who emails us who's an expert in that subject, we actually got one opossum email from Steven, who says, I am a public health veterinarian. Working in one health and I did my master's of public health on rabies and post-exposure prophylaxis, so I think about zoonotic diseases quite a bit. So, of course, there's always a listener. Of course. Steven says opossums and rabies are a neat story, as they are generally thought to be resistant because they have a relatively low body temperature. So possums have a body temperature of about 94 to 97 somewhere in that range and that seems to be a little too low to support the rabies virus, not quite to the rabies viruses liking, so Steven says that said, all mammals are indeed susceptible and a few cases have been reported. So it's not ironclad. Links us to a summary from 2013, which includes two opossum cases, disease surveillance is complicated. He says, especially in wildlife, suffice it to say it is possible. However, we don't have to have too much fear and he continues Meg those signs in your dorm were right. If you finish your post-exposure prophylaxis before you show clinical signs you're good, once you start to show rabies rabies is almost invariably fatal. Yeah. So yeah, don't wait too long. There is a radio lab episode about the rare vanishingly rare times when it is not fatal, but it usually is. Steven says, thanks for making an awesome podcast and for being spot on with your public health messaging whenever that comes up. So this is us being spot on with our public health messaging when it comes to preventing rabies and also not fearing rabies possums in particular. Well, I'm just I'm just so happy to hear that public health person thinks that we are doing a reasonable job when it comes to this stuff because there's been a fair number of charlatans of fakers around them. We don't want to purport to have expertise. We don't have, but yeah, I'm glad I'm glad we're not leading people horribly astray. Yeah, and opossums apparently they're Hiss is worse than their bite, not just because their bite is probably not rabid, but because they are not inclined to bite or attack. They just put up a front. They make it look like maybe they'll take a run at you, but they probably won't. And they're generally nocturnal. I guess cats are too typically. So they have the room of the coliseum often, maybe in the middle of the night. Anyway, opossums not really a public health menace and in fact, actually beneficial to humanity in many ways, although probably not necessarily what you want, running around a ballpark, but probably not..

January 6 Defendant Matthew Martin Found Not Guilty

"A January 6th defendant, Matthew Martin, has been completely exonerated on four separate misdemeanor charges by a judge. This was a so called bench trial. You can have a trial in which the judge decides or a trial in which the jury decides, well, Matthew Martin was smart. He decided to go for a for a bench trial. And I think he did that because the judge in question is, is in fact a Trump appointee, a guy named Meg fadden, and Trevor mcfadden. And mcfadden has although he was very pro prosecution in the beginning, he seems to have be slowly dawning on him what a racket this is and how they're going after people for doing essentially nothing.

Scott MacFarlane Is the Only One Covering Jan. 6 'Not Guilty' Verdict

"Again, in D.C., Scott McFarland, joining Tanya rivero and Meg Oliver with the reporting over this Matthew Martin defendant from New Mexico found not guilty yesterday on all January 6th charges. We have breaking news, Matthew Martin of New Mexico has been acquitted of all charges connected to the January 6th riot. That's right, Martin traveled to Washington, D.C. after reading then president Trump's tweets about the 2020 election being stolen. He came to the protest on January 6th and entered the capitol with a crowd of other people. Martin has stated that he only realized later that the protests were worse than he thought during his trial, he claimed officers waved him into the capitol building, a prosecutor called this quote nonsense. Joining us now is CBS News, congressional correspondent Scott mcfarlane, Scott, welcome. So tell us about the verdict for Matthew Martin and its significance for other cases. Hey Tonya and Meg, this is not the most significant case. It's a lower level case, a misdemeanor case, but this ruling, this verdict could be quite significant. It lays down a marker that not everybody here unlawfully in the capitol was deemed unlawful that day by all judges. The judge has found this defendant Matthew Martin not guilty of four charges, entering a restricted area, two charges of civil disorder and unlawful picketing and parading. The judge says the government didn't make its case sufficiently on any of those charges. What the judge cited is what Matthew Martin didn't do on January 6th. The judge says, according to the evidence shown at trial, Matthew Martin wasn't screaming or shouting, wasn't crowding people. He was here. He was amid the mob, but the judge says he was not an impactful member of the mob.

"meg" Discussed on Parenting Great Kids with Dr. Meg Meeker

"You go back in the room and you rub his back, you don't turn on a light. You don't change the background noise, and you don't talk to him. You rub his back. Now, if he cries hard and stands up in that crib and start shaking the rails and saying, get me out of here. You have to walk out of the room. And because clearly what you've done by walking in there and not getting him out of the crib is not soothing him, it's making him matter. So you walk out of the room. If you still crying after 15 minutes, you can go back in, same routine. You don't say anything, you don't turn a light on, and you don't cave. You don't say, okay, get up, and we'll eat. He's not hungry. He's not hungry. He just ate 45 minutes ago. So you know he's not hungry and you know he's not ill, and you know he's not frightened. So what is he? He's saying to you, get in here, mom or dad. I want to play. I don't want to be here. Basically, he's having a temper tantrum. Now, if you're two year old we're having a temper tantrum, because you wouldn't give malali pop, would you say, oh, I'm so sorry. Here's your lollipop. No, you would say, sorry, you're not getting your lollipop. So when your baby at 6 months of age, 45 minutes after he's gone down for a nap, is screaming at you to come in and play. You say, no, I'm not going to play. It's sleep time. And you may do this every 15 minutes for an hour and a half. And you go, that wasn't worth anything. My baby didn't sleep. It was worth a lot because here's what you taught your baby. When I put you in your bed, you were there for at least an hour hour and a half. Now, you don't have to sleep, but you will stay in there. You may need to do this two or three or four days. I guarantee you by the fourth day, he'll get it. He'll get it. Oh, she's putting me in here and she's not coming back. She's not taking me out of the crib. I get it. I might as well sleep. So that's why you start during the nap time so that you can keep your wits about you when you're going in there every 15 minutes. And you have the wherewithal and the stamina to not pick him up out of the bed. So let's get that rhythm down. By the way, an 8 month old baby should be taking two naps a day for at least an hour or two each time. You say, well, my baby doesn't need that much sleep in their 6 month old. They do need that much sleep, but they just don't want to sleep that much. If they're not sleeping too good and naps a day, it's okay to let them have one long nap a day. But we know that all babies that age need at least 12 to 14 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period. And particularly if they're up at night, they need even longer nap during the day. So you get that nap rhythm down. Now, if your baby goes to day care, or if your baby goes to preschool, and they can't be napping in their bed. That's okay. You talk to preschool teacher the day care person and say, at home, my baby usually goes to bed around 11 in the morning. Do you put the kids down here at 11 in the morning? And if she says, yes, we do, or no, we don't. I put them down at ten. Then rework your nap time schedule at home to follow the day care nap time schedule. So it's really important that every day your baby's sleep rhythm is the same. Now let's tackle the nighttime. We're done with naps, and you've been successful at naps, or at least your baby's getting used to the idea that when I'm in this place, I have to sleep. So during the day, you don't feed your baby any more frequently than four to 5 hours. You say, well, that's cruel. That's me. It really isn't because I guarantee you your baby will eat whatever he needs to eat in order to grow. If he's an otherwise healthy baby. And at 6 or 8 months, they're also eating food. So you can give them some food in there. And I strongly encourage you at the nighttime feed, you give them something that's pretty that's gonna stick to his stomach. Give him something like oatmeal or give him some bread and give him some protein and give him a really full meal. Don't just give him fruit and a couple of veggies. You really want to give him as good of a meal at nighttime as you can because it really will help him sleep through the night. So let's say you've gotten through the day and you're putting your baby down at about 8 or 8 30 at night and you do the same thing you do your pre bedtime 15 minute routine and you've got the lighting the same and the bed the same and the smells the same and you've read and you put your baby into bed and he looks up at you and he screams. What is he saying? Get back here. I don't want to be here. Rather, if you jump to him and go, okay, you really don't need to be here and take him out. What you're telling him is it's not okay for you to be in your crib alone. Every time you go in and pick up a crying child who you know is very tired and it needs to sleep. And you know, isn't hungry and you pick that baby up. You are giving him a very clear signal. It's not okay for you to be alone. You need me. And the longer you give that signal, the longer it will take him to feel safe in his crib. You want to give just the opposite signal. And that is, it's okay for you to be in your crib alone. I'm right here. I can hear you always. You are safe. This is your safe place. So if he jumps up and he cries, you go in and you rub them and you say it's time to go to sleep. And then you walk out. Again, if he cries ten or 15 minutes later, you go back in and you rub his back. You don't say anything. You don't talk to him. You don't cuddle him. You wait another 15 minutes. Wait a little bit longer. Another 20 minutes, and you go back in. If you've done this three or four times and a good hour and a half has gone by, it is okay if he's really hysterical to pick him up right at the bedside, give him a squeeze, give him a pat on the back and sue them and say, it's okay and put him right back in the bed. Don't walk him out of the room. Don't walk him around, put him right back into the bed. Because you want to let him know he's safe. The room is okay and you're always there. And you finally get him to sleep, and let's say he falls asleep in about 9 o'clock at night. And then he wakes up at one in the morning. Well, that's four hours, and you've just been sleep training, so it's okay to get up and feed him in his room, put him right back to bed. He wakes up another four hours, try to push him off to 5 hours if you can. If he wakes up at one and you fed him, try to make him wait till.

Us would have been asking for equal pay and it appears as though they have achieved that they do not see it that way. No they don't they issued a tweet from their. Us national team he eh. So players association us pr stunts and bargaining through. The media will not bring us any closer to a fair agreement. In contrast we're committed to bargaining in good faith to achieve equal pay and the safest working conditions. Possible the proposal. That usf made recently recently to us does neither. Now here's where we have a problem. what i would say is knowledge vacuum. I don't know what was in that proposal. I don't know the ins and outs of the pause. meg From the athletic. Who just great on this she tweets. Us soccer just issued a statement on the us women's national team on us mnt cba's it states that usf has offered identical contract proposals today proposing single cbs structure with revenue sharing usf believes best way to achieve these important goals is by the us women's national team players association on the us ns tpa negotiating together. That's the men's association however this quote marks this is from us soccer if the players association's choose to continue to negotiate separately as they have to date us.

I'm joined by tilly. Shemer executive director of university of michigan. Hello university of michigan is one of the top five most jewish schools by jewish population in his home to one of the largest allows the nation as student head back to campus. We are fortunate to be joined by someone who has a front row seat to the difficult realities as well as the well of opportunities that are awaiting american jews on campus tilly. Thank you for joining us on the pot. Thanks so much for having me. I'm so happy to be here when we speak about the jewish campus experience. There's what's captured in the headlines. Which more often than not captures the very real rise in antisemitism facing many students and then there's what's not captured in the headlines vibrant jewish life awaiting students on campus during their most formative years for students listening.

Doctors Are Relying More on Monoclonal Antibodies to Fight COVID

"For Covid 19 is showing a great deal of progress. David Begnaud reports from hard hit Louisiana monoclonal antibodies, lab grown proteins that help the body target and eliminate covid infection, according to Dr Thomas Galit, chief medical officer at ST Francis Medical Center in Monroe, Louisiana. They have become the most effective therapy yet has done a great job of helping high risk patients stay out of the hospital. The therapy is becoming more available at hospitals and clinics around the country. But it is only administered after infection within 10 days of the first symptoms and before those symptoms get to severe what type of sickness do you usually say that's too sick to receive if they are having profound oxygen requirements continued high grade beavers dehydration. Since July. The first we've given about 1700 doses. One of those doses went to 42 year old Scotty Johnson. We were there when he got his infusion three weeks ago in Monroe, as Covid was attacking his body. It feels like somebody's choking you. You start coughing, but nothing comes out this week. We followed up with him and we met his wife, Meg. They both got the antibody treatments right around the same time. I just really start feeling good about Three or four days ago, probably, but I feel like I'm like 90% now, while Scotty did not get the vaccine bag did my wife got anybody treatment? On Thursday. I tested positive on Friday. On Saturday, she was back up cleaning the house and doing dishes and like it never even bothered. While the antibody treatments can be effective, they are not a substitute for vaccines, says CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Agus. There's no question the vaccine is better than an antibody. But in the case where your immune suppressed and you can't make a good response to a vaccine, they're lifesavers. So this is an important part of our arsenal. But it certainly is not the only weapon in our arsenal. Vaccines are Front line. No question about it to fight a virus in today's world, and that

"And he's mean to his older brothers and peers he tadpoles. He's highly competitive and verbal fights lead to physical fights kindness. Training is not getting through. Well you have a very strong willed seven year old son. If he's being bossy to his older brothers usually. It's the other way around. First of all. I would expect that your seven year old son is act in this way because he wants attention for some reason he feels that his older brothers are doing something that he can't do. Maybe they're smarter. Maybe they're stronger. Maybe they get more attention from you. Maybe they're cooler and he wants to be like then buddy can't so his way of getting attention is being nasty and bossy. And that's something that you need to know. A lot of times parents say well my my child's only doing it because they want attention and i say right so give him attention. Parents often say that because they feel that it's a way to excuse the kids behavior not pay attention. That's the first thing i would think about is that he's wanting attention so give him more attention you or dad. Give him more attention. The second thing with a seven year old is that kindness training helps in some areas. But when you're talking about a brother to brother relationship it can be very very tricky because they are competitive boys naturally fight. Sometimes they fight for fun. They wrestle they. they're very physical with one another. Because that's how boys play. That's how they bond but when you have verbal insults that lead to physical fights consistently you need intervene and you need to stop the behavior kindness. Training won't do that because their feelings. Your your seven year olds feelings towards his or his brothers are very very intense. So this is what you need to do. Basically his bullying his brothers and one day when his older brothers have had enough. They're gonna pop him one and he's not gonna do what he's doing anymore. So just to warn you. That's the way older brothers respond when they've had enough from a younger brother. But here's what i would do. I would sit down with your seven year old. I say look. I know that you like being with your brothers. I know that you feel competitive with your brothers that you want to be who they are. You wanna be able to do things as well as they do. And i understand it. It's totally normal but you need to realize you have very different talents than they do. So don't compete with them. You know you're really good at soccer. And they're good at baseball. You're really academically very strong. You know their gifts were more in the sports arena. Whatever you wanna talk about his gifts and tell them that they're very different from his brother's gifts to diffuse some of that competitive spirit. Then you have to say to them however no matter how you feel towards your brothers in our house. Fighting is not allowed. Your brothers are not allowed to fight where somebody's gonna get hurt. Either with a verbal insults or physically hurt and dad and i are not allowed to treat you kids that way and you're not allowed to treat us that way. You're not allowed to treat your brothers that way. That's the family rules so even though you want to boss your brother's around even though you feel that you can scream and yell at them even though you feel that you can physically fight with them you can't so here's what we're gonna do. You've gotten into this habit. It's a bad habit. We need to break. And i'm going to help you break it when i find you fighting with your brothers or being rude to your brothers and really bossy with your brothers. I'm going to need to take you away from your brothers. You're going to have to go to your room and you're going to have a time out for half an hour. You have to be alone because if you can't behave with other family members you can't be with them. The other thing that you need to do is find a consequence for your son that he really doesn't want now a lot of parents say will. I can't find a good consequence for my seven year old. Because no matter what i do he doesn't care. He keeps on with his bad behavior. You haven't found the right consequence. There's something your seven year old wants when you take it away. He will be motivated the next time not to have that thing taken away so it needs to be serious enough. Needs to sting enough. That he is motivated not to fight with his brothers because he doesn't want to get his video game or his ipad or whatever it is taken away so really. This is a discipline issue. Nobody in the family is allowed to treat anyone else the way he's treating his brothers if he continues to behave that way. There's gonna be a consequence that he doesn't like and finally when he's behaving that way towards his brothers. He's not allowed to be with him. He's in his room for at least half an hour and when he's ready to stop being bossy and stop fighting and stop being route then he allowed to be with them. Dear doctor meg. My daughter is thirty eight years old and she has unresolved issues with her dad. My husband unfortunately. My husband has no clue that my daughter still struggles with issues with her dad. What do i do well first of all. You can't change your husband and you can't change your daughter and you know that she's a thirty eight year old woman. She probably has a family of her own career. Whatever but her life is established as an adult woman. Here's what i would encourage you to do. You can influence your husband and you can talk to your husband in a way that he's most likely to respond in an affirmative way. I would say something like this to him. You know at honey. I'm concerned about our daughter I know that she's struggling. In certain ways and i know that she looks to you for comfort. She looks to you for advice. You she wants you to spend more time with her. She in other words identify to him. What parts of his character. Your daughter would like to connect with and they need to be positive. So you point out the positive aspects of him as a dad and you let him know that your daughter wants to connect with those parts of him so you let him feel good about being her dad then you say something to him like if i were in our daughter shoes i would want a closer relationship with you. I would want to connect with you more if you were my dad and i believe that our daughter would like that. What do you think about that. So you get him to start thinking about his relationship with your daughter and he's thinking about it in a positive way the last thing you want to do is go to him and say listen honey. Our daughter is really hurting. And she's very upset and she's isolated from us she's withdrawn from us and i know has a lot to do with you an unresolved issues that she has with you. You need to step up to the plate unique to reach out to her and you need to ask for forgiveness now. Some men respond to that but most men don't because when it comes to relationships with their daughters or any of their kids they get very defensive and when they feel that you are attacking them for their parenting. They withdraw get very defensive. And they're they're more likely to not respond in a positive way. So i certainly would try. The first approach at the beginning encouraged him that he is a good dad. He has something good to give to his daughter even though she's thirty eight. She still needs her dad. She wants a better relationship with him. He will benefit from a better relationship with his daughter. And then you start to nurture that you encourage him to reach out to her. You encourage him to call her to email her to ask her to go out to dinner with him or to have breakfast with her. And then see how your daughter response when you talk to your daughter. You're not trying to get in the middle of the relationship. What you're trying to do is encourage the two of them to come together. You're not telling them what to say. You're encouraging them to come together to work through their issues. Then i would go to your daughter and say you know what honey i know. You want to resolve these issues with debt. I don't know what the issues are. But you do and i believe that. If dad understands these issues he will resolve them with you or he'll want to resolve them with you. So i would encourage you that if dad reaches out to you in any way that you take a step forward and you go to dad and his adult woman you begin to talk to him in a very gentle way.

"To stamp themselves as gay straight bi or trans gender while they're in high school tremendous amount of pressure for them to stamp themselves as one of these and it really isn't fair to kids because the truth of the matter is and i know a lot of people are going to disagree with me but i've been doing this for over thirty years the truth a matter is they child. Sexual identity is evolving in their teen years for a fourteen or a sixteen year old to come forth and say I'm bisexual they really don't understand what that means but again a lot of them are saying it because they feel pressure to give themselves a stamp so the best thing to do as a parent is to say you know what honey. A lot of things are confusing at sixteen. You know there are decisions that you have to make about what you wanna be in who your friends are going to be and what life is going to be like for you when you're eighteen or should you go to college and your sexual identity is one of those things that is confusing as well. So i want you to give yourself some time to write your story or to let your story be written. Take the focus off her sexual identity. And that's what. I was talking about at the beginning so when you talk to her. As though she's a human being created for repurpose loved by god created perfectly in god's image and then you teach her that she has extraordinary gifts to make the lives of those around her better and help her focus on that that will really make her feel better because the truth the matter is it's hard for kids to focus so much on their sexual identity and their sexuality. It's exhausting for these poor kids. And i think we do an them a huge disservice by feeding into this as parents teachers counselors and so on and so forth we need to back off and teach our kids step back off. Focus on other things rather than their sexual identity finally. It's really important that you don't panic that you don't get very critical that you don't come down on her or scream at her or tell her she's wrong. Tell her that you love her because of who she is you love her because she's an incredible human being that you love her because she's your daughter and then as time goes on refused to engage in the talk about sexual identity but acknowledged to her that it's very important not to make concrete decisions at her age because life is constantly changing. Let's go onto another question here. Dear dr make. I have a sister who's pregnant out of wedlock. My kids asked me why they're aunt is pregnant without being married. We're devout catholics. And my kids are ages. Four to nine. How do i talk to them about this. Aren't they too young. Talk about sex. Yes i believe. Your kids are too young to talk about sex. Now your nine year old might have a clue as to what's going on and how babies are born and and have some questions about sex so you want to tease that out of him and say what do you know. What do you not know. But in general yes sir topic. That's too intense for them. Here's what i would say first of all. You don't wanna malign your sister you don't want to criticize her in front of your kids you want them to continue to love her but to realize that something is going on here that you don't necessarily agree with so what i would do when you talk with them is say something like this. You know what boys my sister is pregnant. And she isn't married in our family. We don't believe that this is god's plan for anyone for my sister for your aunt or anyone else. But i wanna tell you something. I don't want you to worry about it right now as you get older. We'll talk about these things. We'll talk about where babies come from and why someone might be pregnant and they're not married but for now don't worry about it. She has a beautiful baby and she's a really good aunt to you. So just let's put it on the backburner and we'll talk about it later. I have another great question. Believe it or not. It's very simple but this comes up really pretty often. Dear doctor meg. My wife and i are moving into a new house. It's a much larger house than we currently live in. My question is my kids are five and one. Where should their bedrooms be relative to our bedroom to my wife's and my bedroom should i keep them close to us or shy. Keep them distant from us. You know you can't believe again. How common this question is. And here's why many parents move into a larger home and they're excited for their kids to have their own rooms are excited to have more room for them to run around and and of course. They're excited because they've been working for a long time to buy a bigger home. But here's what you need to realize about kids kids this age. Don't want to be in a bedroom. Far from their parents. They liked to be close to their parents. It gives them security. They know that if they have difficulty in the middle of the night if they have a bad dream they can access their parents very quickly. Kids don't like to be far away from their parents. They don't even often at this age like to be on a different level from their parents in other words if their parents are downstairs in the kids are upstairs so pay attention to that but in my experience most young kids like to be in a bedroom very close to their parents bedroom and it isn't unusual at all for siblings to want to sleep in the same room. Here's a question from an anonymous stepmother. Dear dr mic. My ten year old stepdaughter wants to know why her parents divorced her. Biological mother had an affair..

Ep2: Chatting It Up With Drought's Hannah Black & Megan Petersen

"So we come back from multiple callbacks, 'cause we were like, there's no way. Things don't work out like this for us. But it just did. And so casting was really, really fun. And everyone ended up just being local to Wellington. Because like you guys are saying there's so much talent outside of Atlanta. And LA and New York. There's so much talent in those places for sure. But the best roles at least for our film were right here. So. Yeah, exactly. And sometimes that works even better because again, like you're saying you got to have sort of a family on set because if you don't have that relationship that you're having fun, you know, because I think it should be about having fun being professional, but if you're not having fun, I mean, then it's not, you know, the production value is not there either. Long amounts of hours with each other. And very hot conditions. So we'll talk about weather, right? So when we were following it, I thought you would talk about hot conditions. There's always something that happens on the set. There's always a setback there's always something, so maybe you can, you know, most people talk about, you know, oh yeah, we had this, we had that, but you girls had something bigger, maybe you can tell us about that. Yes, because what's so funny, I'll tell you is that we had all the typical things like our grip truck got stuck in the sand, our ice cream truck broke down. And we rarely ever talk about those challenges because they are all, you know, I guess overshadowed by the fact that this film is about no rain and on day 12 of production we had to stop everything because a hurricane for hurricane that category four hurricane. It was headed towards Wilmington. And not moving. And he was coming right towards our city. So we had to stop on day 12 with an 18 day shoot and everyone evacuated to places like Charlotte or Atlanta. And we were stuck outside of our town for two weeks. I didn't know what we were going to come to when we came back. Because when Lincoln essentially became an island, it flooded everywhere. We weren't sure if our locations were going to be okay. And not even just for our films, but because those people who came our family do, and we didn't want their businesses to damage. There was a lot and I was also going out of the country during that time. So amazing Hannah, somehow put the Tetris of our crew to schedule back together and everyone was able to come back two months later to film. But then it was 44°. Okay. So one question about that, I mean, so when you have something like that, I said back. It's very hard on your motivation. It's very hard because now you're like, what am I going to do? And it takes a toll, especially if you're an artist, you're trying to create something that's meaningful, and now you have a big setback. How do you bounce back from that emotionally? You know, just say, you know, I just keep doing it. Keep doing it. Besides that you have the responsibility of finishing, but just more in the sense of like a personal, you know, no. The question. Hold on, but you think that's okay. Like, how did we do that? I think part of it is just we have invested so much already. And I think we could say just ourselves invested, but then when we look at our crew and our cast and all the people that contributed to this crowdfunding campaign and shared our film like when we are doing our campaign, it's like it didn't feel like it was our movie and felt like it was our communities movie. And so it had to, we had to finish it. We had to keep on going, even though we were tired, because not only us but so many people aboard their heart and soul into making this happen. And it just, it just wasn't really an option to be like, well, you know, we tried our best. And we had a lot, I mean, a hurricane was big, but we also hit some equally challenging things during that production after production before production. Just a lot of lifestyle, hard stuff in between. And so it's kind of like, I don't know. We just kind of had, I think also 'cause we're a partnership. So when one person is tired, the other person can lift them up and vice versa. Megan, what do you think? Yeah, the thing I was thinking of is a lot of times those setbacks I think we used as motivation to be like, this will not stop us. And it almost made us get more fire. Every once in a while it gets to you. And I think that that's when it's okay to call up your friend or like I got to just call it Hannah. And sometimes we're like, I can't do it today. Like today I take a break from the movie. Because maybe these are a can be at least a nonstop thing you're working on. You can really get burnt out on it. And the thing we didn't want to do is get so tired that we made a wrong decision. Out of just because we felt fired. So the process of making the movie took longer than I think some do, but a lot of that is in part because we allowed ourselves to take a breath if we needed it. Yeah, that's extremely important. I mean, you pretty much said it like you have to step back and do something fun, relax and then come back to it, right? I mean, that was guilty. I feel guilty. Exactly. Well, I mean, I was going to ask you about what your advice for filmmakers was, but I can not set out, but let me make sure that's where it doesn't have another question. And then I'll ask my final question that you girls go with just show the trader one more time do a little plug for Amazon Prime because I know that it's on Amazon Prime and then go from there. I'll check well also if we have any questions on our site. It was exploring your social media. And I was interested because you put it on your Facebook our hopes, raise autism awareness, brand jobs to our community, provide opportunities for women to live if you want it to elaborate on those. Yeah. I think it was really cool. We were able to pay our crew and we were really proud of that. It wasn't a huge amount. But we were also able to give them an interest in the film. So once the film makes money, our hope is that it does because we don't have investors. It is our crew and our cast and we can give that money back to them. In 2018 when we filmed our town was in a really big world for any filmmaking happening in the area. And it kept everyone energized. I think it kept. It gave people opportunities for roles they hadn't begun before. And now they've moved on to studio productions in our doing those roles. So I think got that goal and yes, number one is to raise autism awareness and acceptance in this film to get people talking about it. And to just promote the message that there is no such thing as normal. And we are here to accept each other but also ourselves. And then finally, from when it in film, you know, one of the reasons we set out to even write female characters is because we are actors first. And we auditioned for a lot of roles that were very grateful to audition for their typically very small and they could be like dumb blond or quirky white dress and we're like, ah, women are so much more than that. And so our hope is that people can see two female characters interacting that just have a family relationship and the complexities that come behind that. So those are our hopes. Thanks for reading those. I clearly asked about them. That's awesome with those goals that you have for this film. I was just amazing. Yeah, and I think that's important. That's very important to have goals. I mean, other than that, I think you have given great advice throughout the whole talk right now, which is really what we want to do. And I think you couldn't have said it better that, you know, you're doing this for yourself. Obviously, but also people get opportunities because they do a project. You know, like not a lot of times, you know, people are just doing something in the last 6 because something there's always someone watching, right? I always say that. There's always someone looking at your staff and then seeing what's out there and it's great that you're actors or maybe someone got a production somewhere out of that. And I think that's the most rewarding experience that you can get as a filmmaker to really see somebody in your film, making it as well. So we're going to do a little plug. How do we find your film? So I'll put it on the comments after the link, but yeah, so you can find drought on Amazon Prime. This week actually we're running a special where you can rent for 4.99 and purchase for 9.99. But then at the end of this week, you'll go back up to its normal price. You should just buy it then, right? You know? Yeah. And if you like it, it would mean so much if you guys rated it and murdered you. I'm an honest review. You know, that's really important to us. So yeah, it was on prem. Okay. All right. So this is I promise this is the last question, okay? So this is just if you were to tell yourself before you even started this project. One thing that you would have done differently, maybe just or you would have told yourself before you got this project going like that, maybe yeah, we could have gotten different at different ways. You know, like, oh, sorry, Meg's. You know, you go first. I was thinking you have sex. Okay. I feel like everything was supposed to happen the way it was. So I wouldn't change anything because had learned so much. The learning curve on this project was huge because every single role that Megan and I stepped into was new. But I will say if I could go back and tell myself something that I'll continue to tell myself for the next projects that we do, I really struggled on set and only Megan really knows this. As a director, because I felt like I was completely under qualified, which I was and still am. But I felt like I needed to know everything. Especially technical stuff, which I was not familiar with at all. And so I really got in my head when I was in director mode that I just was so inadequate and it made it was just really unhealthy. Unhealthy thoughts, you know, of like, I'm not good enough or like, no one's gonna listen to me, all that stuff. It's such a waste of time. And so what, maybe I don't know all the answers, but that's why you have a team. So I think I would go back and tell myself just chill. Just trust your gut. You know that other people are working just as hard, you don't have to know the answers, and that's why you have all these great people with you. So yeah, I think that's maybe something that I go back and tell myself. Intel others, you don't have to know everything, just take it one step at a time. That's perfect. Yeah. You know, it's going to sound cheesy. It's mine. It's about the same. I would think in my modes though if I don't know something, I try to learn everything I can about it. And sometimes you just don't have the capacity. I don't need to know everything that the gaffer is doing. As I do more or sound or the first AC or DIT, you know, I wanted to know everyone was doing. I think that comes from a good place. And I think what Hannah's talking about comes from a place of wanting to be a good team, team member. But being a good team member is sometimes releasing responsibility and letting people do what they're there to do. And as we do more projects or as you can do more projects out there, you'll learn more and more each time. And you'll feel, I think more like you have more knowledge of everything going on. It's okay if you don't. That's perfect. I think that's perfect by this way. I mean, pretty much what we've been saying and we're gonna keep saying it and we're gonna try to do this little segment as much as we can find filmmakers that are doing great things in this area and outside this area because I think we're all connected anyway. So maybe one, maybe one day we'll get to work in a project together, and definitely. Ladies, we wish are the best and the best of luck on your future and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty good one. I mean, you have a great movie that I think is going to inspire not only filmmakers, but just anyone looking to just be creative.

And i think that's because it's kind of painted for us like right in school that your purpose is what you do and just kind of along the lines just growing and all of that. I've learned it's not what you do. It's like who you are and who you want to be so instead of asking. Like what do i want to do. That is such a hard question.

'Jaws' Expert Valerie Taylor Tells What It's Like to Get Bitten by a Shark

"A debate brewing over sharks Should shark bites be called attacks or just encounters as beachgoers. Witness survivors getting rushed to the hospital viral video posted just this weekend showing a hammerhead shark in Panama City Beach getting a little too close to swimmers. Some wildlife experts are pushing to rebrand interactions with the ocean's apex predator, calling them bites, negative encounters or incidents instead of attacks. I would say any time we're painting any wildlife as interested in harming humans. We're reducing people's positive feelings about them. People's desire to see them conserved and protected and increasing the likelihood that people see them as Villains or antagonists. For years. They've been the bad guys in movies like Jaws. We're gonna need a bigger coach and the Meg about a massive megalodon shark. But experts say in reality shark bites are rare and that using language like attack gives a false impression of intent. Page winter who was bitten by a shark in 2019, losing part of her leg. Told all Robin Roberts she didn't see her encounter as the Sharks fault. This situation has urged me to learn more about sharks. I didn't do something directly to the shark, but I was in his water. You know, That's his house. But Dave Pearson, who survived a shark attack in Australia and now runs a support group called Bite Club says avoiding the word attack downplays the very real danger. We can't keep sanitizing things to the point where we It feels like when you're the person involved. It feels like someone's dismissing your experience and dismissing your troller is something that's insignificant. You need to be aware that there is an element of danger out there and we call them Apex predators for a reason. And predators bite things. Even Stephen Colbert weighing in on the debate. I'm sorry, ma'am, a shark interacted with your husband's torso. He's experiencing a not being alive. Incident. Whatever they're called. Officials are taking these encounters seriously in Cape Cod, where at least 50 confirmed great white shark sightings have been reported this past month on the APP, shark tive, itty. Researchers deployed acoustic receivers to track great whites to keep people safe. It's a really valuable way to find out more about the movement of great white sharks. That's important information for the public to know when they are going to the beach. You know where they might be more likely to encounter a white shark. When you're at the beach. Look for signs of sharks. If there are seals in the water. There might be sharks nearby, because they eat seals. If there are birds flying in the air, that means they're looking for fish that sharks are also probably looking for. So if you do go swimming, try to go in pairs in groups Just be smart. Generally and also remember that unprovoked shark bites are exceedingly rare. There were fewer than 100 globally just last year at CBC's will review coming

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 <hes>. 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 <hes>. And many other issues. I really encourage you to find a marriage.

"We didn't have cell phone sent it was a miserable first week of the month. But I'll tell you something after that at the end of that month, my daughter in law got along so well because she learned to respect me, she talked while to me she never said shut up again. And today, she's thirty five and she's one of my fairy closest friends when you crack down your kids out of love, and you're serious about rules and discipline. They respect you. They draw closer to you and your son who's thirteen. The bully will be so much happier when he stops bullying. So you can do this you and your husband just have changed tactic. I really strongly encourage you to look at my discipline with courage, and kindness course, it'll really help you. I'll take one more. And this is. Is from Ashley dear doctor. Meg. I haven't amazing son. Who's in second grade? He's going to be eight this month. We had a situation where all of a sudden he started noticing girls and having all kinds of feelings that I don't think our normal for a seven year old he noticed breasts, and he began having dreams were girls aren't always dressed came out of nowhere. We don't watch any movies with him where he would see this is it normal for a child of seven to be thinking about this. We've told them that his feelings are normal. But that we don't talk about them with friends at school, but he could always share his feelings with mom and dad he's been very open which has been surprising. He feels guilty when he looks at girls breasts, and then he tells us he's just seeing them with skirts on and we tried to explain that all girls have breasts. Thank you. Ashley, actually, your son is at an age second grade ish. Seven eight nine where they're starting to question. Male female relationships. They're starting to question what sex is all about. They don't have sexual feelings there prepubertal, but they're very curious about what sex is about. How girls are built? How boys are built? And it's not even unusual for boys to pull their pants down in front of another boy and for them to look at each other's penises, or for them to wanna take a peek at a girl under her shirt dec- what breasts are so as curiosity is normal. You're handling it beautifully. You say to him Honey, your feelings and your curiosity are totally normal. But we talk about these with mom and dad in private so you don't necessarily wanna make him feel guilty. His curiosity about girls doesn't sing that. He's had any kind of abuse at all kids have been sexually abused her imitating sexual behavior. Your your son's not doing that? So the fact that his imagination is going and these wondering pearls look like is perfectly normal. You're doing a great job keep talking to him about it. Help him not feel guilty. But just answer his questions, and it's really important, Ashley and doing all this. You're setting the stage for some really important conversations that are up ahead, and that is how to talk to him about sex. I have a whole course in that too. Which is because parents wanted to know how to talk to their kids about sex keep the conversation going and you say to him. Thank you for coming and telling me your concerns and asking questions when ever you have a question about boys and girls or relationships or moms and dads anything that you wonder about don't go to your friends because they may not have the right answers. Always come to me because I had the right answers. And I will answer any question. You have at any time. Because dad, and I know all the right answers to any questions that you're gonna have. And that's the way you set yourself up if you will as being the go-to person when it.

"Him to be respectful, but he needs some serious rules this kid needs raining in. He can't be mean to his brothers because they will resent them. They will pick up his bad behavior and their self confidence will suffer because he's the oldest. And it's just hard to be picked on all the time by anybody. Even if it's a sibling. So you need to treat them like you would treat any other bully that wasn't your son. You know that bullies bully because deep down something's really bothering them. They have low self esteem. They're jealous. Maybe he's jealous of his other brothers. So you and your husband need to get to the bottom of what's bugging your thirteen year old. I would even sit down and talk to him and say, here's why we think you're bullying your brothers. What's going on? How do you really feel is this something that you really want to do? How does it make you feel when you're mean to them? Does it make you feel better? Or does it make you feel worse? Your husband if he can needs to take. Him out alone and spend some time with him and do a little bit of digging to find out what could be eating at him. Maybe he's always had low self esteem. Maybe he's always had the personality where he just his fuses short, and he just gets mad easier. But he's at the age where he really needs to learn as you said some self control, you really need to go through my discipline with courage, and kindness because this is exactly what I address one of the principal reasons that we discipline our kids, we don't do it to be mean or to be controlling one of the reasons that we do it is to teach kids self control because no one in life can be successful at anything unless they have self control. You can't be good at your job. You can't have a healthy marriage. You can't have healthy friendships or relationships if you don't have self control. And right now, your son is really out of control. He's not gonna gain self control over. Tonight, and the way kids learn it is that their parents have to I impose it that's why we make kids do things when they're young and out of control. We teach them what it feels like to live with rules to live with restrictions to live with laws you and I live with them every day. And as they learn to live with those restrictions as they get older, they begin to impose the restrictions on themselves. They learn how to discipline themselves. They learn how to talk to people so modeling at tier son is really important. But you've gotta make him do it as well. So here's what I encourage you to do you. I need to figure out what's eating at him. And why he such a bully, and I would treat him just like bullying, you can eve- even use that language with him not in front of his brothers. But you can talk to him about that in private. So you figure out what's going on? If you can second you sit down and say. Here's what you can no longer. Do you've been doing it for five years. Two years, however, long you've been mean to your brothers and you give him some specifics. You say this this is your tone of voice, and you hit. So we're going to pick you find the three things that he does that are most offensive to his brothers. And you say for now on you can no longer do this. And this and this do you understand? Yes, I understand and he'll get mad. Here's what's going to happen to you. If data I find you doing any of those three things for one week, you're grounded you'll come home after school, and you will be with me or dad, you won't go to soccer practice. You won't talk to your friends. You won't be allowed on the television on your computer anything. You can do your homework in the kitchen in front of me other than that, you cannot use a computer. In other words, you get serious about this. And if you need to do it for two weeks, you do it too for two weeks when my? My daughter was thirteen. She told me to shut up once she was grounded for a month. She didn't go to basketball practice. She couldn't go to friends houses. She couldn't get on the phone..

"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..

"Attention has always been an issue and recently, he's become very defiant and disrespectful and lying a lot. He's not bad kid. But he started looking at porn a lot after the gay comment. I was and still am very angry about him looking at it. I've yelled at him. But nothing helps his grades are really bad. And we're only five weeks into the school year. Well, lacrosse jet. You have some serious issues going on first of all Lexa pros a medication that's used for depression and anxiety, and he's old enough to be on it. If you're watching him carefully. And you do feel that it's helping his depression anxiety. It's okay to keep him on it as long as you are working very closely with your physician as far as his bad behavior as defiance and his disrespectful nece and lying around the house. I'm sure that this is tied in with looking at the porn. He feels guilty looking at the porn as well. He should because porn horrible for young boys and men, and it's unfortunately, it's rampant. It's everywhere guarantee. You he has friends that are looking at porn as well. So he feels guilty about this. He's getting defiant with you because he's angry at you for catching him, he's angry at himself so on and so forth. He's also angry himself because he's getting bad grades. He has low self esteem, and he's taking that out on you. So I would continue to work with a counselor with that as far as the pornography. You have to help him. Stop it. It's really hard. Because as I said, it's everywhere. Pornography comes at boys pornography has been shown to lead to some depression to drinking to drug abuse to promiscuity, it takes boys to a very dark and ugly place. I would encourage you to seek out some of the work by Steve Arte, burn. And he wrote a very good book called every man's battle. And he talks a lot about what men and boys go through. And he also has some great advice for how to help boys and men get off of pornography. So look him up. He has a lot of great resources. If dad is in the home, you and dad and your son need to sit down and have a real heart to heart about how dangerous pornography is and how hard you're willing to fight for him to get off of it, you need to put some serious controls on all of his devices, and you need to tell him that you and his dad are going to hold him accountable for everything. He looks at it's hard to find everything he looks at because seventeen year old boys can be very sneaky and hide things from you. But do the best that you can. And if you can't get his pornography use under control, you need to seek some.

"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.

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.
