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

"Now as a Ramsey personality, he's host of the Doctor John deloney show. You got to listen to it where he teaches on relationships and emotional wellness. All right, let's get to my interview with Doctor John deloney on this episode of parenting great kids. Well, John, thank you so much for joining me today on my podcast. I've been really excited about our interview. Thank you. Once again, it's such an honor. You're the greatest of all time. You're the goat. You're the goat. So I'm so excited to be on your podcast. Well, we're Kindred spirits. That's for sure, and I was thrilled when you joined Dave Ramsey because I thought, yes, you know, you're filling in that big gap, which is terrific. You have a fabulous new book out, own your past change your future. I love it. Immediately when people read the title, they get it. And a lot of what you talk about is facing your past so that you can change how you live in the future. And when I talk to parents, I often talk about, you know, you come into your parenting with a preload. What I talk about is maybe two pages long and you have a whole book about it. So talk to us about talk to us about why we need to pay attention to the past and the stories that we tell ourselves. So I think it's a good place to start is here. I noticed over the last ten years or so working with the folks I was working with behind closed doors and then dealing with this in my own life. My own marriage, my own friendships as a parent myself. The culture really is presented us with two options. It's just reduced it down to either you are the worst thing that's ever happened to you or you're the worst thing you've ever done or said. And you need somebody else, whether it's the government, somebody's got to come help you because this is all you're ever going to be. Or the other alternative we've been presented is forget your feelings, they don't matter. If you have a feeling that's a sign of weakness and a character defect, just grind it and kill it and drag it and go get it. And so behind closed doors, I'm working with parents who are like, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I was abused, but that doesn't matter. My kids got anxiety. What do I do? And then I'm talking to folks who are making more money than their grandparents ever could have dreamt and they've got fancy titles and their imploding because they never stopped even ask themselves do I like this? They'd ever grieve their first marriage. They're stuck in this stuff. And so the trauma literature is what really began turning my wheels about a decade ago, which is, as, you know, van der kolk says the body keeps the score on all this stuff. And it will continue to solve problems for year after year, and we fall into his parents. We fall into the same model that we grew up with. It's just what we know. Even if it hurt us, our bodies solves for what does it remember, right? So you can't get well unless you acknowledge where you've been and where you are and where you've been and where you are doesn't mean you can't get well. It's both in. So this book's like a new third path here. Yeah. How do you know what your pain is and how do you face your past if you don't have a good counselor? Is it possible? I think so. I think in our culture and man, the first half of the book is really kind of unpacking this. I think our culture has done itself a disservice by pathologizing things like death, pathologizing things like not feeling good or sadness or grief. We've just removed all negative feelings in our pursuit of happiness, right? So it's in our founding documents. We have a right to pursue happiness. And we've turned that into, you have a right to never feel any sort of discomfort ever, ever, ever. And so we were trying to solve for all this discomfort and what I think we've done in the process. Meg, as our bodies are wonderful signpost for us. If you're anxious that your body telling you something, if you're angry all the time, your body's telling you something. If you heart starts beating when your husband's car pulls in the driveway, your body's telling you, right? And so it's asking ourselves, what is our body's trying to tell us? And honestly, I got to a season when I couldn't even understand my body anymore. And I had to lean on community. I had to lean on close friends and say, hey, is this the way I'm seeing this problem? Am I right? And they would say, actually, we've been waiting for you to ask that. You're kind of bonkers right now. And then there was a season when I knew, okay, I need to go get professional help, right? But I think it's getting back in touch with, just what does my body trying to tell me? Where am I not safe? Where I'm not okay. You know, I totally agree with you. A number of years ago when our kids are little, I hit the wall and I went into a major depressive episode that lasted about three years. And it had a profound effect on our kids, which I didn't realize at the time. I thought, well, I'm going to do my best in front of them and so my husband helped me work it through and I finally did. But it's amazing how what we as parents are experiencing. And it was kind of like an explosion of all these feelings. And I could trace it back to kind of a car accident. But anyway, the explosion of all these feelings comes out. And then it jumps right on to our kids. So I think that as we go into this as parents being naive enough to think that what we brought into parenting isn't going to affect us, is really at roots. So you talk about our stories as we're growing up the stories we create about ourselves about relationships about the world. How do we create these stories as kids? Is it just the experiences we've had? I love it. It's a great question. So I often tell parents your kids absorb you. And you can try to play, they will absorb it from you, right? Yeah, so there's the stories we're born into. And I was born in Texas. I don't know, where were you born, doctor meeker? Massachusetts, yeah. Okay, so you and I were born into very different stories about what life is, what's right and wrong, what a man looks like. All those stories are churches told us stories are parents or families of origin told the stories, right? And they weren't really explicit. They were just that was the air you breathe. This is just what happens on a Sunday in Texas versus what happens on a Sunday in Massachusetts, right? And then there's those stories we were told. And they can be explicit, whether it was that coach that told you you're never going to be anything deloney or hey. You can do anything, right? With some hard work and some dedication and or that third grade teacher or what are your parents or that guy who assaulted you and told you an implicit story that this is what your body's worth. It's mine, right? So we had these stories we were born.

"I saw it progressing and I knew that I was finding my way again. And I imagine, because you talk about serving and how important it is to sort of give to others and this is a huge way of doing that obviously. But I imagine if somebody would have told you two, three, four years. Before that, you would have said no, I mean, that's not where my life is going. I mean, and yet it here it is. And unfolds. Did hearing from the other women help you or do you feel you were there to just serve them? That's a really good question that I don't know if I've thought about before. I think it became this two way street where I was able to help them and then seeing that what I was saying in my experience was helping other women heal. That became really healing for me because I think when we can I kind of hate the phrase give purpose to your pain because pain is really stinks. You know, and sometimes the only purpose for it is just because life is hard and that's part of the experience. But I do think that that seeing your pain not only transform you, but help you help you to help transform other people there's something really healing about that. So yeah, it has helped me a lot. You know, I would imagine seeing this whole process unfold and other women makes you realize it really did happen to you and this is true and it works. And when you're writing about something that's very true, it's like it reaffirms itself over and over and over, and really what a joy for you to watch more and more and more healing. And my hope is that it strengthens your healing too. So you have something online. You wrote a book bestseller called born to shine. And you started the shine project. How do you want women to shine? Is that about helping them regain their power, get hope into their lives? What do you mean by the shine project? The shine project started as a community for women to really come and feel encouraged and to get resources to help them in their day to today lives because what I know to be true is that even in our darkest moments, that we can still shine. And so how do we do that? What does that look like? How do we show up for ourselves and the world even when it is really hard? And that's my hope for women that no matter what is going on in their life that they know that they have the power to shine through it and that's why I started the shine project. I started the shine project actually before any of this in any of our losses happened, which in hindsight I don't know feels like it was just as much for me as it was as it is for everyone else, but it has become a really supportive and beautiful online community. I could imagine because in the painful times I've gone through in my life, which is very different from what you've experienced and you know I just can't imagine I'm sure you hate it when people say that. I can't imagine a pain you went through. But just knowing there were one or two people who got it. And who were there and they were present gave me the sense that I could keep living. Yes. And it almost sounds like you're project gives that to women. I'm here, I'm still alive. You're going to be alive. And not only are you going to be alive, but you're going to be okay. And I think that when you're in deep and dark paint, you don't believe that. You don't believe you're going to be okay. You don't even know if you're going to survive. Exactly. And I think that what I have learned about pain is that not only was a never meant to destroy us, but it can really invite us in to learn more about who we are and what we're capable of. And in that learning, there's a lot of power there. And there's a lot of confidence that can come into our lives. And I think that we're not just supposed to survive that there can still be so much love and light and hope and joy in all of those good things that all of us want, pain doesn't have to take it away, but it's up to us to be able to go right into the center of it. So that those feelings are invited because we can't feel good without feeling the bad and so when we try to shut out the bad, we shut out the good too and we just become numb and I just refuse to live my life numb. It's too beautiful to miss out on. And that's extraordinary. To come from somebody who's been through what you've been through. And I just want all of our listeners who are listening and primarily a lot of moms to really let what you're saying sink in because what it means is moving forward, you don't have to be afraid. Because when you had fear and you learned how to overcome fear and sort of pull out of it, you know, you faced it, and you survived it. And so now you know, I know what that is like going through and I got through. So if it happens again, I can do this. And I would think that would be a wonderful feeling. What do you want for your future? What do you think your future holds? I mean, you know, crystal ball, but what are your thoughts about your future? You know, doctor meeker right now, we're actually in the middle of fertility treatments. And so our hope for the nearest future is to be able to have a baby and the healthy pregnancy and but if not, my hope is that no matter what happens that we keep showing up and trying again and that we keep being able to connect with other people who we need, but also who need our experience and support while they go through hard things and I hope that no matter what, it's full of love and joy and healing and, you know, I can say this. I haven't always been able to say this, but I can say right now that I am really excited for our future and to see what life brings us. You should be. Because just from listening to you over this past half hour, it feels like you have a tremendous amount of peace, no matter what happens. And so you can walk forward into the future knowing it's okay, whatever happens, it's okay. I mean, your future is going to be so good and so wonderful and so bright because your past has allowed you to have tremendous amount of comfort and peace and strength and knowing that you can handle anything. And so I think hopefully everybody will hear that in your voice. You know, Ashley, you're an extraordinary person. You really are extraordinary. I don't say that lightly because I've interviewed hundreds of people. And your story is amazing, but what's really more amazing is how you handled all of this. And I really hope that our listeners can get that because you are speaking truth and it absolutely does work. How can people find out more about you more about the work that you're doing and more about your books?.

"Go longer periods of sleeping and not eating at night until finally you can drop that middle of the night feed. You know, it's interesting because sleep training is a lot easier on kids than it is on parents. And I know that's hard for parents to believe, but it really is. Kids are so much more adaptable than we think they are. But they really are. They're willing to adapt to just about anything. The difficulty is, we're convinced they need us in the night. And they don't need us in the night. We're convinced that it we're not there at their back and call that we're going to psychologically damage them. We won't. We will hurt them if we continue to teach them that all through the night they're not safe in their room. They have to be with us. And that creates this very unhealthy dependency that they have on us. Of course they're dependent on us. And we're accepting that. And we're meeting all of their needs, and we're meeting their nutritional needs, their emotional needs, psychological needs, and so forth. But when we teach them that they need us at all hours of the night, that can be a really unhealthy thing that we train our kids to feel. We need them to know that they're very healthy in their rooms by themselves. I do want to say one final thing and that is very often as your sleep training. You will go to bed anticipating that your baby will wake up at two in the morning and they won't. They'll wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning and the first time the baby shows you that they can go from 8 o'clock to 6 o'clock or 8 o'clock to 5 o'clock in the morning without eating. You can expect that to happen from that day forward. So if a baby is doing that, you need to push them to continue to do that. The only exceptions are if your baby's sick. Now, if your baby gets sick and is awake up in the night for three or four days, you're going to have to almost sleep train them all over again because they're going to be used to being up in the night. But again, they will sleep train all over again..

"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 6 in the morning to eat. So with that second feed, you push it longer than you did the first feed. Or if it's harder for you to get one in the morning and you want to push it to three in the morning, push that first feed forward, and then let him go a shorter period from the middle of the night feed to the morning fee. Whatever is best for you. Because he can adapt to that. Some people go to bed at midnight, so getting up at one in the morning is terrible. So you get him up, you feed him one in the morning, he wakes up at four or 5 you do not feed him you go back in and you rub his back and you make him wait. Until it's 6 o'clock in the morning to eat. He's 6 or 8 months old. He can definitely wait 5 hours to eat. Because there are kids who are three months old who are sleeping ten hours at night. Certainly you're 6 or 8 month old Ken. And then you go through your daytime routine. You feed him when he wakes up. You give him a good meal. You wait four or 5 hours, give him a good meal. He goes down for nap and so forth. So let's say you did that again. You go back in at 8 or 8, always keep as best you can. The nighttime sleep time the same. If you're going to put them down at 7, always make it 7. If it's 8, make it 8, if it's 9 9. Don't make it any later than 9, because that's going to be too hard for you. You put them down at 8 or 8 30. He goes to sleep and an hour later he's crying. And you want to go in there because you feel something's wrong. Learn your baby's cry. Learn his scared cry, learn his, I'm hurting cry. We're talking about a cry here that happens every single night you put him down, where you know he's not afraid. You know he's just in the habit of not falling asleep. So an hour after he goes to sleep, he wakes up and he's screaming again. You wait 15 minutes, if he's still screaming, you go back in there. You rub his back and you leave. And you make your visit times very, very short, and you never talk. I promise you if you do the same thing, three or four nights in a row and you don't get him out of his crib after the first two or three bouts of crying. He will learn that it isn't even worth it to cry because he's not going to get taken out of his crib anyway. So after you've trained him to do that, and this really won't take that much time if you're willing to stick it out. And he is going to cry and it is going to be uncomfortable for you, but every time he cries you think lollipop. You think this child is having a temper tantrum because he wants to get out of bed. He wants to play and he wants me to do what he wants me to do. If you were two and having a temper tantrum, he'd want a lollipop. Would I give it to him? No. So you're not going to feed him after that first hour and you're not going to play with him. So he goes to sleep and he wakes up at one, but you don't want to get up at one, you make him wait till it's 2 o'clock. You get up, you feed him at two, and then you make him wait another four hours. And now you've got at least a good rhythm where he goes to bed. He waits till two in the morning. He waits till 6 in the morning, and then you work with that for a few weeks. What you've done is you've taught him when he goes in his bed. He's not going to cry for four or 5 hours. You have to remember to kids don't quote unquote sleep through the night until they're closer to two. They wake up, they go to sleep. They wake up, they go to sleep. So there are a lot of times he's awake and he's not letting you know it. But the times that he's crying, he's saying, get in here, I want to do something. So what you're really training him to do is when he wakes up not to wake you up. So the times that he wakes up and cries, he's really having a temper tantrum saying, get in here, get in here. Now, after you've got him down to feeding at say two in the morning at 6 in the morning, you need to drop that 2 a.m. feed. Well, how do you do that? You put him down at 8 or 8 30, and you do your same routine until he goes to sleep, even if it takes him an hour, but by now it shouldn't because you're 5 or 6 days into this. And when he wakes up at two in the morning, you don't feed him. You go in there and you rub his back and you leave. Now you'll want to feed him. Because all you want to do is have this child eat and go back to sleep. So you can get some sleep. But remember, if you do the hard work up front and have him drop that 2 a.m. feed, the payoff is enormous because I guarantee you when you start to drop that 2 a.m. feed and force him to wait until 6 to eat and it won't take that long a couple more days a week from now a week from the time you're starting to force him to drop that 2 a.m. feed. You're going to feel like a whole new person. Because believe it or not, it's not that hard for kids to stop eating in the night. When kids eat it two in the morning, a 6 or 8 month old baby, or a year old baby. There's one reason they eat in the middle of the night. And that is they're trained to. If somebody came in at two in the morning to you for a week and gave you your favorite food, let's say it's cheesecake. They woke you up at two in the morning and gave you cheesecake every night at two in the morning and then they stopped. What would happen the first night they stopped? Your stomach would grumble. You would wake up and go where's my cheesecake? That's exactly what's happening with your baby at two in the morning. He's so used to eating that his stomach rumbles and he cries and he says, get in here. Well, the only way you're going to break his stomach from grumbling is to not feed him. And that's not going to take that long to do. So the reason he's waking up at two is not because he needs to eat, but his stomach is trained to eat. Just like your stomach would be trained to eat if somebody gave you your favorite food at two in the morning. So I guarantee you once you stop the food, then the crying is going to stop because the reason he wants to get up is because his stomach is telling him to get up. And then even after he stops eating in the night, he's still may wake up a little bit at two in the morning, but he's not going to scream he'll go back to bed because they realize, huh, I've been in this crib for a number of hours here, and I'm not going to eat now because my stomach isn't crumbling, I can go back to sleep. And that's how you drop that middle of the night feed. So now you've got your baby sleeping from 8 or 8 30 till 6 in the morning. I promise promise promise. If you work on the daytime naps first. And you train your baby to stay in his bed for at least an hour and a half. He doesn't need to sleep. And then eventually he learns to sleep, then it's so much easier when you start your sleep training at night. You'll get him to.

"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.

"During the morning, you wait until about noon or 11 o'clock, you feed your baby, a good, nice meal. You wait about half an hour before you put the baby to bed. And this is why. You want to make sure that your baby doesn't spit up on you, because you don't want them to spit up and choke or anything like that. But if you wait a good half hour, you can feel confident that the milk has gone down into their stomach. Particularly if your baby is a spitter. So around 11 o'clock or noon, you feed your baby and during the next half hour you know you're not going to put him down for half hour. So you give him a pre bedtime routine. You may read to him. You can rock them. You can sing. And then when half an hour is up, you take him into his room that has the same lighting that you do at nighttime. The same spot in the room where he sleeps. This is ideal. A lot of people can't do this. But in an ideal situation, this is what you would do. You would take the baby into the nursery, where his crib is, you'd pull the shades, so it feels like nighttime. You'd put the sound machine on, so the same sound is in there. You'd put the crib in the same spot, shouldn't move. You'd have the same smells in the room. You have the same noise. Everything about the space would feel the same. So that when you go in, he has a cue, okay. This is my safe space where I sleep. So even when you walk in the room, the lighting and the sound and the noise tells him, oh, okay, it's sleep time. Plus, he's very full. So he's getting sleepy anyway. And then when that half hour is up and you've done your 15 minute pre bedtime routine, you put the baby in the bed and you leave the room. You can rub his back and you leave the room. And some of you all of you are told, never put your baby to bed asleep. That's a nice idea. But as a mom and a grandma, I know it isn't always possible. And sometimes we're just so desperate. We want that baby go to sleep. And we put them in the crevice. If your baby's asleep in the crypt, that's okay. If he's asleep when you put him down. And.

"And it can be more relaxing. But I say that because that's a transition period. And babies don't naturally transition well. Now, some kids are born and they sleep through the night and that's it. And you know, we hear our Friends talk about their baby that came home and slept through the night from the first day. They arrived good for them. But that's the exception not the rule. Most of us have to take time to transition our babies from that chaotic state into a good sleep eating rhythm. Now most babies need a lot of help from us if we're kind to coerce them into that rhythm so that their thyroid and their endocrine system can all work well together so that the baby can sleep better and eat better and feel happier during the day. But it's not just the baby's happiness. It's important. It's important for moms happiness because babies need a happy mother during the day, a well rested mother during the day far more than they need to be up at night or be drinking milk at night or feeding, nursing or having a bottle. Now, it's really important if your baby right now is sleeping very erratically. Or you put them down to bed either for a nap or at nighttime an hour later they scream, they want to get up. Or you put them down and three hours later at night, they scream and want to get up. Or you put them down and then two hours later, they scream and want to get up. It's really, really frustrating and hard for parents. A it's exhausting and it wears us down. But we start to feel like, what's wrong with me as a parent that I can't get this baby to sleep through the night? And then we believe all of my other friends, baby sleep through the night. Well, they don't. I mean, there are a lot of two and three and four year olds who aren't sleeping through the night, but who should be sleeping through the night and who can be sleeping through the night, but they're just not sleep trained. So sleep training takes a few things at the very outset. It takes intentionality. You mom or dad have to be at the point where you say, I can't take it anymore. This baby has to sleep through the night. He's four or 5 or 6 months of age. I'm exhausted. I've got other kids. I've got work to go to during the day. And I can't function. So I'm at my wits end. I need to get this baby to sleep through the night. Or maybe your spouse wants the baby to sleep through the night because he or she is exhausted and wakes up whenever the baby makes a noise. So if you're at that point, and if you're ready to say, I'm going to tackle this, then you need to figure out how you're going to tackle it. When are you going to start sleep training? I strongly encourage you to start sleep training during the day first. Don't start at night because you'll cave. You'll get three days into it. The baby will wake up again and you'll say, oh, just forget it. Bring the baby in my bed. I'll feed him get him back to sleep and you're back to square one. You don't want to do that. When you decide to sleep train, you've got to set aside a whole week. 7 days where you will get this done. So if you're going to start, you're ready to start don't just randomly start any time. You start during the day at nap time. And here's why, because you're more well rested and you can tolerate difficulty much better than you normally can. So here's what you do during the day at nap time. Remember, we talked about how important it is to manage the feeding to get the baby tired enough to go to sleep. So let's say you're ready to start sleep training and because you're at your wits end and you're ready to go. First of all, your baby needs to be at least three to four months of age, has to have no other medical health issues has to be growing well and has to be at least 12 pounds. And most babies are 12 pounds around three months. I don't encourage anybody to start sleep training until the baby's older than two months at least. Usually three to four months is a good time to start. So if you have an 8 month old who's not sleeping through the night, he's long overdue. If you have a 6 month old who's not sleeping through the night, he's long overdue. If you have an 18 month old who's not sleeping through the night, you've got your hands full and your work cut out of you but you've got to get that 18 month old sleeping through the night because if you don't, you're going to have a 5 year old on your hands who won't sleep through the night. So make sure your baby is at least three to four months of age at least 12 pounds, has no other medical issues, and you're gonna start sleep training during the day first. So you're gonna tackle nap time. Let's say your baby gets up at 6 or 7 in the morning. You feed your baby. Probably a pretty good meal because hopefully he or she has slept four or 5 hours. It's really hungry. It's gonna eat a very satisfying meal. And won't be hungry again for at least four to 5 hours. You say, well, no, no, no, you don't understand. My 6 month old is hungry at 10 o'clock in the morning. They're not. They're crying and they don't need to eat, even though they're crying and you want to feed them. And here's why I know that. Our granddaughters were born their twins. One was a little over two pounds. One was a little over four pounds. And when they were the neonatal intensive care unit, they got fed no sooner than every four hours. Now, if a two pound baby doesn't need to be fed any more frequently than four hours. Your 12 pound 15 pound baby certainly doesn't need to be fed earlier than every four hours and can usually go 5 to 6..

"Because you're getting a good biorhythm going in your baby. They need a good sleep rhythm, a good eating rhythm, a good playing rhythm, because the body is basically like a wonderful symphony. And we've got all the different endocrine systems working in concert. They want to work in concert. Your cortisol wants to have a rhythm. Your thyroid wants to have a rhythm. Your estrogen and progesterone a testosterone want to have a rhythm. But if they're all out of whack and your baby sleep schedule and feeding schedule are all out of whack, the symphony loses its beautiful sound. It becomes a cacophony, if you will, it just doesn't work. And that's the way a baby feels when they don't have a good rhythm to their sleep, rhythm to their play or rhythm to their day. And that's really what sleep training is all about is getting a good rhythm established. And the best way to start doing that is by coercing a good sleep rhythm. Now, up until this point, we fundamentally been given two ways to get babies to sleep through the night. The first way is to get babies to just cry it out. The second way is to essentially wean the baby from your presence. And that's where you put your baby into bed. You sit by the crib, you sit by the crib until they go to bed. And then you walk out. The next night you pull your chair farther away from the crib and you wait till they fall asleep, you walk out. And eventually you move yourself out of the room when the baby goes to sleep. And you could do that and it works and that's fine. But it takes a long time. And a lot of people just don't have the patience for that because it exhausted when they're trying to sleep train their baby. And then, of course, we've got those who'll say we just put them in the 8 o'clock and then see them at 8 o'clock in the morning and that's it. And the truth of the matter is some parents end up doing that when the baby's a third or fourth or 5th baby because they're so exhausted. They don't wake up in the night when the baby cries. And that's not all bad. If the baby's crying because he doesn't really need anything, he's just saying, come on in here and play. But if the baby's crying because he is hurting or he's frightened or he's sick, you need to be ready to go in and attend your baby. So it really helps your baby and you if you're not so tired when you go to bed at night that you can still wake up if you need something. So I have created a program that works around a very different principle and that is if a baby is really full the baby will sleep better. And people say, well, my baby's not really hungry during the day. So I don't know why they don't sleep well anyway. Well, hang on a minute. The fullness that I'm talking about is a real satisfaction or satiation of food that you've had. Kind of the way you feel after a Thanksgiving meal. Now think about it. This makes so much sense. If you've skipped a couple meals because you're waiting for Thanksgiving, you sit down and you eat a really wonderful Thanksgiving meal. You feel very relaxed. Your stomach sends a cue to your brain. Relax your kind of sleepy. Because when you eat a big meal, what do you want to do? You want to fall asleep? Well, that's the principle that this sleep program works on. And that is if we allow our babies to get hungry enough, not starve, but hungry enough to eat a very satisfying meal to let their stomachs get really full, the baby will go to sleep faster and sleep longer. What are the habits that we've gotten into as parents and allowed our babies to get into as babies is that they snack all day long? Whenever the baby cries we feed them because we don't know what else to do. And we never put their feeding off. So what happens is the baby's never really hungry, but he's never really full either. And if he's never really full, how can he go to sleep well? Think about yourself. If every couple of hours during the day, you ate a granola bar or an apple. And you never really ate a meal. But you just snacked all day. How would you feel at 10 o'clock at night? You'd feel pretty frustrated. You wouldn't feel hungry, but you wouldn't feel full. You'd sort of be in this limbo land. Well, if you're in that limbo land from an eating standpoint or a hunger standpoint, you have a hard time going to sleep. Your stomach never has an opportunity to cure your brain into the fact that it's time to relax. It's time to go to sleep. So that's what the principles of this program really are all about. Now, think about yourself as a baby for a minute. If you're a baby and you're living in your mom's womb and you're floating around in this beautiful, wonderful, warm fluid. You don't have to worry about breathing because you're getting the oxygen through your mom. And you don't have to worry about crying or seeing or anything. All you have to do is float. Then all of a sudden you come down mom's birth canal or you come out of her stomach. And your head is squeezed. And you come into the world, you also have to breathe. You see lights that you've never seen. You hear voices you've never seen, you hear this loudness and the stimulation, it's overwhelming. Your body's really in shock, if you will. And now you go home and you don't know what is daytime and what is nighttime because it's only been night for you. And it's no wonder that you go home and you're up all night, but you're asleep all day and then the next day you're asleep all night and you're up during the day. Basically, we all know those of us who have had kids who are under two months of age, know that babies are really off kilter from a sleep standpoint and an eating standpoint. And that's because their body hasn't had enough time to get into a rhythm. They haven't had enough time to get into a good feeding rhythm and a good sleep rhythm. But once we train their feeding, then we train their sleeping and we can see how we take this baby who's really living in a sort of shock chaotic state, the first two months of life into a very healthy rhythm where they're sleeping in their eating and they're playing and they're sleeping and they're eating and they're playing. And this takes training because again, they're going from suddenly being out of the womb to suddenly being in light and noise and not knowing how in the world to eat to a time where they need help. Getting to the other side where life can be more enjoyable, it can be more satisfying.

Talking to Your Teen About Their Sexual Identity

"Dear. dr mc. My sixteen year old daughter is experiencing i issues. She doesn't talk with me about it but she has to her brother and some close friends. I wanna reaffirm to her that it's okay to be a girl and straight and still struggle with your sexuality and identity and that you don't have to be non binary or change your pronouns or be bisexual. She did experience some sexual abuse. So i believe a lot of this stems from how she's dealing with that she's also in theater and has been exposed to a lot of people who've changed their gender identity. I want to get some therapy but worry with a culture today that it would just reinforcer feelings and desires. Please help my little girl. Well first of all thank you so much for writing you know. Our kids are living in a time where life is extremely confusing particularly when it comes to their sexual identity and their sexuality. We're living in a culture. That sexualizing is our daughters and our son's it makes them feel as though their sexuality is the most important part of their identity that they're worth comes from their sexuality that their sexuality trump's their identity as a human being and this is wrong. Here's what i would encourage you to do. This is what i do with kids in my office. First of all. I would address your daughter in a larger context and i would say to her honey. I understand that you're struggling with your sexuality and your sexual identity and you know a lot of kids your age do but here's the thing. Why don't we put your sexual identity on the back burner for awhile and focus on you. Developing bigger parts of who. You are focused on developing your character.

Today i'm going to talk about three realities of fathers and you know it's interesting because some of you may be thinking we'll to talk about dads one time. When i was giving a lecture a man stood up and said what makes you think that you are an expert on men or fathers. And i said sir i'm not i said i'm not a man. I'm not a father. And i'm really not an experts on father's but here's what i do know. I do know kids. And i know what kids want from their fathers and need from their fathers and how they see their father so my role as a pediatrician is to help you. Dads take a look at yourself through. Your kids is whether you have a son or a daughter because i believe if you could just see who you are them from their perspective for thirty seconds or a minute your life had never be the same. I wrote a book called hero being the strong father. Your children need and you can't believe how many dads didn't like the title. They came to me and said. I'm not i'm not a hero. I don't play nba basketball. I don't play in the nfl. i haven't made a lot of money. I don't even have a great relationship with my kid. I said that's not the point. That's not what the title hero means in. Your kids is your hero and dad's like well i don't i still don't know or they react very strongly. No i'm not. No i'm not. I can't be my kids hero. Well then i would ask as why. Are you reacting so strongly. Chances are you're acting very strongly because you wanted that in your debt and you didn't have it so you're very angry at the whole idea of fatherhood but you're kid isn't so you need to look at yourself from perspective of your kid no matter where you are or what your relationship is like whether you've never met your kid by the you're in jail whether you're a ceo of a fortune five hundred company and you never see your kid.

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.

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.

Then the other thing is as far as learning other languages in the future me say your child wants to learn spanish in fourth grade or french or latin. Like i did. It's gotta be so much easier for them because they know how to work different parts of their brain time. They'll both of my kids. I haven't even mentioned this to you. That's what i'm saying.

"You. Don't you said you love what you do i. I've always loved being an entrepreneur. And that's what i do. And i'm really added but for a number of years i had this really awful feeling inside because i knew that i was put on this earth to do more than just do good work. 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. Ever start ever been be a part of was the one. I was going home to not the one i went to that and that actually when i started becoming the husband and father that i was put on this earth to be and i love your approach you know. It looks like as re reading the book that you had kind of an epiphany you know you drove home. You'd had a successful day and you're sitting at the end of your driveway on. I don't want to go home.

You really talk about how you can use the business principles. Make his successful with your family. And i i got it and i thought ooh that doesn't quite make sense but early on in the book you talk about getting the right mindset and you talk about the importance of failures right up front. What's the right mindset. 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.

Is you want to find your true fans as mentioned in kevin kelly's Blockposts thousand fans. If you're not familiar with the blog post the theory is that if you have a thousand true fans a thousand customers that absolutely love what you do in rave about it. That's all you need for a successful business because you can sell a thousand people something that can make you a living in the whole point. Is that those thousand people of course are going to tell other people when you love something when you absolutely enjoy an experience at a restaurant at a resort experience with a new product or software. You get help. Tell other people about it. Whether it's in person or on social in your mastermind. Whatever the point is is that if you have a thousand people raving about you. You're just going to go gangbusters so you need to find people that are perfect fit. That will do that for you now. Of course it's not easy to get thousand right off the bat you're going to start with one two three four ten twenty one hundred two hundred you get the point. So how do we get to those thousand people. How do we attract the right people what we got to know who they are. We had a densify them. Just like if you wanted to attract talent to your team you'd have a job description right. You put a job post describing. This is who. I'm looking for. So what i want you to do. Is you're going to start creating a description of your best customer that avatar that person now. You don't have to make this up. You don't come out of thin air and say this person is made up and this is what they do and this is the type of business. Just look at your current customer base. Even if you're new you have those special customers. The ones that really are interested in what you do. The ones that congratulate you when you have a new product or new feature via email. They reply to your newsletters there on your weapon ours. They comment on your social posts. I want you to really do some research and identify these people in your customer list. Literally create a spreadsheet and. Write down their name and email address. Even if this is just like a dozen people or half a dozen people that's okay that's start now the dentist who they are. You gotta learn a lot about them. You wanna have a full understanding of who. These people are individually for example. I did this exercise. And i continue to do this. Exercise every single year. And i do customer interviews so reach out to my best customers and i try to learn as much as possible about them. For example one of our customers are the. Mary meeker sisters. Emma and carla pompous there wondering ninja users in the us webinars to grow their business to bring in new customers into their online yoga and pilates school and in the process of that conversation in understanding who they are. We ask questions like what you start this business. How long have you been doing this. How big is your team. How did you discover women are ninja. How'd you hear about it. Why did you choose us another competition. What do you like most about what problems is assault for you. What's next in your journey. What are you excited about in the future of your business. I'm basically like interviewing them. Like interviewing them on sixty minutes or something or on a podcast. I'm trying to get inside their brain. I wanna understand where they're coming from why they made the decisions they meet. What are the circumstances in their business. That causes them to use my product. Also of trying to dig a little deeper find out what is success to them. What are they looking to achieve. I want to know this. Because i want to be able to help them be successful in some way whether it's a now with my product in the future the point here is that i wanna be a part of that success on bought in. So what's the point of this exercise. The reason why you want to get to know your best customers. So well. Because i'm better. You know them the easier. It is to find people like them. If you ever had an employee that Left your company and there are green employees in the job above and beyond your expectations but decided to move on or they're changing careers. It's easy to write a job description for that position because you're basically describing that amazing team member. I'm looking for this person and it's easy for you to do that because you know who that person is. You know what they've done you know their story and you're going to do the same before your customers. Now one of the things that we do in these interviews in these conversations in these video calls is that we actually transcribe them. We actually want to see the words that they use when they talk about themselves and they talk about their business when they talk about their problems with talk about their challenges when they talk about why they chose our product. Why because again. I want to attract people just like them so wanna use the same language. I want to use the same language on my website on my social posts in my email marketing and want my potential superstar customer to read my copy and say they're speaking my language this resonates with me because this is exactly how i feel. How do they know while because they did the research because they did the work and there's nothing like that feeling when you feel like these people get me. It's hard for you to compete with a company that does that so your competition is going to have a hard time competing with you because your target market your customers. Your best customers are flocking to you. Because you're speaking their language now in this process where you're going to find is not. Everybody is your best customer. You're gonna find a thread. you're gonna find. hey home. i best customers have this in common. It could be. They could have established businesses. They could be making at least x amount of money. They have a small team. They've tried other products before mine. This is a really good exercise to make a list of all the things your best customers that you've interviewed have in common and guess what there is your customer avatar. And what you're gonna find is there's a lot of people outside of that and that's okay. Hey because it's better for you to attract the best customers. They're going to save time and money and headaches and problems. What you want are the people that really believe in what you're doing and want what you have is nothing worse than trying to convince somebody. Hey we're number one. We're great trust us. And they were allegedly by then. They're disappointed and it has nothing to do with what you did for them. It just means grizz are not a good fit successful products accessible services accessible businesses. Don't force it. They say this is who we are. This is who we serve if you're gonna love what we have in store for you but none of this is possible if you don't know who those people are if you don't know who are your best customers and what's great about business zandt Success leaves clues right customers that love. You really enjoy what you do that comment on your post. That really liked all the things on social that. Open all your emails. You have their contact. You can reject them.

Help! My Wife and I Disagree on Co-Sleeping

"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.

The Good Dad Project With Larry Hagner

"I really want our listeners to have a sense of who you are and where you come came from in order to start to go dad project may one day i woke up and i was like i suddenly know everything. There's no about fatherhood cher with. That's obviously not true whatsoever. My journey into this whole dad's space really really started when i was a kid. My mom my childhood was was pretty complex. My mom was married three times. My mom did the best. She could with what she had but she was. She was married three times every guy that she married guy that she dated was kind of the same guy you know kinda like there's usually some element of toxicity drugs alcohol and physical mental abuse. So i always say that. I spent half my childhood without a father. Figure the other half with some sort of toxicity going on. But what i can tell you just really quick story. Is mom biological father. Remarried in nineteen seventy-one. They had me and seventy five. They got divorced really quickly about. I was about nine months old. He completely split no recollection of whatsoever. When i was four my mom remarried and at that point my life. That's how i thought moms found dads they just go out and find ads and so this gentleman came into our life. They were married for six years. They got divorced. It was it was a really horrible bitter end. They got divorced. I have not seen him since fast. Forward two years later. I ran my biological father by mistake. I wasn't expecting it. We had a relationship for a handful of months. Was this twelve. Yeah so i was. I think i was in seventh grade at the time. We had a relationship for a handful of months. He's remarried had a two year old son. Another one on the way and then it just got to the point. I think for him at that. Point is life where it was too much and unfortunately that relationship ended and it didn't end well and i completely went in a direction of i emotionally over eight. I failed the eighth grade. A lot of really crazy things can happen. My mom remarried a few more a couple more times and then fast forward graduated from college was in my first profession. I'm sitting in the coffee shop at a meeting When i was thirty when you walk in to get their morning coffee my father my biological father who i hadn't seen since i was twelve and i won't go into how we connected but we did connect and here we are fifteen years later and we do have a relationship. I spend time with him actually pretty often two younger half brothers. He's still married to the same woman but the good that project data is really started. Because i was struggling terribly had at the time for boys now the time i had to had a four year old and a six year old. Didn't know what. I was doing with really frustrated. Short on patience short temper The good nap project. Unfortunately there's there's a part of me that's very shame to admit this but it really came on a on a dark night in a dark moment. Where my son who's twelve. Now he was four. He stepped out of line as any four year old. Would i don't blame him. It was my fault. I spanked me. Hit the ground. And i looked at him and i went to help him up and The look on his face was i felt like i was staring myself and i knew in that moment i was like i don't know what i'm doing but i'm gonna find out how to do this better and i'm tired of living with no direction with patients. Having a hot temper all my life is only my career. And it's only my career. Because i don't know how i don't know how to be a good husband. I don't know how to be a good father. And i just surrendered. I'm just gonna. I'm gonna surrender my ego here and i'm just gonna learn and it was at that point in two thousand thirteen. I started good. That project dot com. It was a blog. I don't know how many people know this. But get that project actually me. I was this project. And then it's evolved in what it is today which we've been podcasting now for five years you've been one of our guests We've have over six hundred episodes and we have four hundred and fifty men that you live with us in our mastermind as a huge community and a movement and it all came out of absolute total struggle and dark places to be totally honest with you.

"Throw a monkey wrench in an already tough situation. Now, you've got dad who's the Bio Dad living in another home and you've got step dad and mom living a home. MOM AND DAD scenario I, see a lot mom and step dad believe that. Kids. Should have curfews and You know boyfriends and girlfriends don't live in the home and but then the kids go over to bio DADS and they don't have to go to bed till one in the morning and dad's got a live in girlfriend. And a mom and Stepdad don't believe in that. Help those tears get on the same page or can they? Okay. So let's let's just acknowledge that. Death or divorce followed by a marriage that forms a blended family, means you have less parental power as one single parent than if you were in a unified family situation. There's no way we can ever recover what has been lost in that sense. What we can do is find as many ways as possible to cooperate between households to try to come to similar similar expectations for the children. But somebody right now is laughing their head off because they just heard that they said you have no idea what to deal within the other. And there's no way that's ever GonNa Happen I. Get it, right? Yeah, and in in those situations. Okay. You tried you manage your home. You teach. You talk you build character. You have morals and values that you're trying to instill in your children. You live up to those and you manage your home knowing full well that when they go home, they're gonNA stay up late tonight, get enough sleep. They're not GONNA get the math homework done and it is going to ripple conflict and some stress back into your life it comes with the territory. But you just manage your home as best. You can always leaving open. The possibility that God may do another miracle in that other parents life, and someday they may come to see the light and WanNa. Know what time should bedtime be. Your calls are you print? But. Honestly, it is a stressful situation when that happens I I've often compared. You know the goal of co-parenting. is trying to cooperate regarding the other home as best you can. Because you WANNA, make it easy for children to move between homes. They're not caught in the middle of some war that's going on between the adults if if you're Canada and the other homes the US. Hey, it's all good. Yeah Yeah. We we do have a different money system. Government different health insurance right. But we love each other. We like each other we get along. You can cross the border pretty easily. It's all good. But if the other home is North Korea. And you're the US. You got a whole lot of politicking going on a whole lot of agendas being worked. It is far more difficult for the children to actually show up in either of those places and feel loved and feel safe and not feel like they've got a report on the other country, and it is what it is like you do what you can, what's within your power. Love will to manage well to be consistent to your rules and guidelines. What happens when Suzy's thirteen mom and Stepdad have a fairly strict home? She's not too keen on step dad and says, I'm going to go live at Dad's because he's a lot nicer. He doesn't have rules. You. Do you let her go or? Let's play that out. Yeah. If I'm mom in that situation. The first thing I want to do is dial back my panic. That? Yeah. Yeah. Everything inside you just went. No, that can't happen. I don't want you to go. Why would you WANNA leave. That makes me feel. So Oracle and you turn all that down and you don't let that get the best take a deep breath and you go so tell me What is it that you're needing? Once what's happening? That's making you feel like you need to do that and you go right back to the child and you try to listen and hear and understand, and maybe it's just because Dan is cool video games. It might just be that. But. Maybe it could be that deeply doesn't feel safer. Loved for whatever reason. And you do have something that you really need to address like. So you gotTa Listen I. I will say this I've written article about parenting, a step parenting in parenting teenagers I do think for some children, there is this natural longing to want to spend a little time with their other biological parent, that is a legitimate need. Do think that is something that if you talk and listen and explorer in its, there's nothing manipulative going on here. This is not a challenge is trying to get the best to you or put went over on anybody. They just have an authentic need to spend more time with dad. Thank, you might have to accommodate for a season. Now, if there's some sort of agenda or manipulation or. One. No. I don't think you just give in to that I. Think you address what's the problem you address what? we want you here. We WanNA keep custody of the way it is. We want to pursue that solicit try to address what's happening so that the need to move to another home goes away

His death and resurrection continues to change the course course of human history many who want to believe in Christ who are skeptics. Say Well I read in history. That Christ Christ came and Christ was real and he was a good teacher but they say come on miracles that he performed death and resurrection. That's a little bit hard to swallow. I can get that. He came and he taught people and he was a really nice guy. But make him supernatural. super-natural I can't get myself there but that's exactly what he did. And as a matter of fact there's historical proof for the resurrection of Christ. Five hundred people saw Christ resurrect from the dead. But it wasn't just his life that happened. That happened just in thirty three years. It was his death that proved the mystery to be real. He was a poor man who performed formed miracles. He was unjustly bound score ged and forced to walk up a hill with a heavy cross us on his back. That would be hard to do if you hadn't even been beaten.

"In the courtroom that they will actually humiliate women who come in and pants they are almost required to wear a skirt court and this is the lawyer. This is the lawyers were talking about. I'm not talking about <hes> the people that they're representing and stuff like that this assist lawyers and one of the issues that was being brought up. One of the girls brought up. <hes> black women's natural hair. This is where some of these opportunities are massed and there was an opportunity missed there too and this didn't have to deal with the speaker that i was listening to because he was not involved his you know oh two different two separate stories but the person who answered this young lady's question about black women's natural hair also missed a massive opportunity and this young girl is in school to become a lawyer and she is going to be presented with a unique opportunity and somebody needs to encourage her to grasp that this unique opportunity what i would have said to her. Is this as a black woman. I implore you to keep your natural hair forever. Don't do anything to your hair. That is unnatural to the way it grows out of your head. They keep it and fight for fight like hell for it and this is what we should be teaching people. This is the when that speaker meeker was here. That was the opportunity that he must. He could have directly addressed everybody in the crowd but especially the african could americans and he could have told them that this is your opportunity to fight. You have got to fight the correct way. I'm not saying by violence. I'm not saying by hurting people. I'm not saying by self segregating and things like that. You have got to to fight to change society the way society thanks you have got to fight like hell until the day you die and on top of that you've gotta take care of yourself so that you can make sure that you live as long as possible so that you can fight for as long as you possibly can because it's up to you to change society. You're elected. Officials aren't gonna do it. Vol's aren't going to do it. Government isn't going to do it. Your political parties are sure as hell not going to do it. It's up to you. It's up to me. It's up to all of us. The change that situation at some point in time you have to turn around can't turn a blind eye anymore. You have to understand what's happening happening. You have to stop complaining about it. You have to start formulating solutions and this is where the discussion comes in. I know that there's a lot of people out there that don't want to include other people in the discussion about issues that involve them and i've been confronted about that in the past. I don't understand it because i don't understand how you fix problems. If you only allow one group to take part in the conversation that doesn't fix anything that's a bitching circle that is not solutions that is not fixing the problem and we have gotten to a point now where everybody has to come together and everybody has to fix us and somehow we have to turn off the televisions. We have to stop listening to these politicians on both sides. We have to stop listening to the news media and we have to start listening to our neighbors at some point in time. You have got walk outside and realize what you're being told is not what reality shows things are far more harmonious out there.

Understanding what open source is

"You've been writing about open source for twelve years. Can you give us some historical context for the modern debate about licenses and more broadly what open source actually means because a lot of this debate bait. I think is some of it boils down to kind of fundamentalism where people are wondering what actually does open source mean and like we have certain certain norms. We have certain expectations but what are those actually grounded in. This is when i start to realize that i'm old remember that i'm old old until i have one of these conversations and i say you know we've had this. We've we've already discussed this. We already settled at ten years ago and then i realized when those words come out of my mouth and like like oh wait had the same old i've become the high cut off my lawn. The first of all i would say the what we're going through right now i don't. I don't think it's any different from what we've gone. Through before the the fear of the public cloud is very similar if not the exact same as as what we had before the fear of the big web companies it was yahoo if you remember them google etcetera the exact same concerns that they taking software not contributing back so that's always kind of been a concern and even before the web companies will at one point. We were just happy that anybody he downloaded software used it. We're excited about that and then as soon as as soon as we got over that initial euphoria and said hey wait a why. Aren't you contributing back this. This has been going on forever and early on. I was not part of this conversation but early on what was it ninety seven. They came up with the open source definition and i don't <hes> heather. You'd be better expert on this but either it came. I know the term open source was coined in ninety ninety seven. I don't know if the definition came out at the same time but at some point in the distant past open source was defined and for me like they did the definition is in you can go to o._s._i.'s webpage or just type in opens who are steph initiation into google and and you'll find information. That's the canonical definition that we've been following more or less when you say open source. It's roughly what everyone thinks of when they hear those words the difference has been in that there are always companies and i've been a part of those companies and i've helped drive those business strategies for those companies. They're always companies who are trying to get the benefits of open source without necessarily. I was gonna say surprised when people want people like an amazon or microsoft soft or somebody else comes in and says i would like some of those benefits to i'll take your code and i won't give anything back because

These days, practically every entrepreneur marketer, and even office manager needs to be a graphic designer as well. Instagram's wild growth alone has created an explosion of demand for visual, content and the skills to build it, our insatiable craving for all things visual has been a boon to Melanie Perkins. The Australian co-founder of Canada Canada is a web based design platform intended to feel intuitive for the average user if you haven't heard of canvas, yet, you probably will soon Perkins. Thirty two years old started the company from her mother's living room back in twenty twelve sensing a need in the market for an easier.

Yearbooks, six years later that homegrown company has more than fifteen million users, designing everything from logos to social media posts, too. Resignations is just been valued at two and a half billion dollars. Double its previous valuation in mid may famed venture capitalist. Mary meeker chose Canada as the first investment from her new fund called bond can be received seventy million dollars in that round from meeker and partner investors the investment at that sky high valuation was notable. But arguably, it was even more notable coming from meeker who grew her fortune by helping to spot growth companies. We all know today companies like Dell Google Amazon, EBay and into it just a name few that she chose Canada as her first investment says a lot about the growing design space and about Canada itself can book is a broad platform encompassing design tools photography, and presentation software, it competes across the spectrum with several bigger names from adobe to shudder stock to Google, but one enormous company in particular should now sit up and take notice. We're talking about, you Microsoft. Perkins loves to gleefully chat, about the dreaded death by PowerPoint is a way to point out that Campbell offers competitive presumably, sexier presentation tools with the new funding Campbell plans to go after big customers, those enterprise businesses for whom PowerPoint has been standard for far too long.

"Remember, the time meeker Brzezinski of morning, Joe said that Donald Trump was Putin's. But boy close quote never mind NPR said that Donald Trump has been the toughest Martin president against Russia. And now president is withdrawing from the NF treaty. I suspect that Russia's not happy about that. And the president criticised Europe for their dependence on Russia for a natural gas. Military buildup. The United States is developing a state of the art missile defense system. Under my administration. We will never apologize for advancing America's interests, for example. Decades ago, the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capability. Well, we follow the agreement and the rules to the letter Russia repeatedly violated its terms. It's been going on for many years that is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty or IMF treaty perhaps. Even Trump haters concede that the Russians have been cheating. We really have no choice, perhaps we can negotiated different agreement adding China and others. Or perhaps we can in which case we will outspend and out innovate all others by far. When we come back more on the president's speech will talk to Virginia from Largo, Florida who wants to comment about abortion and about Margaret Sanger Virginia. Please do not leave town.

Venezuela's Maduro says he's ready to negotiate as Trump calls Guaidó

"President Donald Trump up the ante with Venezuela today personally, calling interim president y to offer support then his Wade are taking to the streets again following a call from Guido for people to put more pressure on what the US now called former President, Nicolas Maduro. Why does also urging the old powerful Venezuelan military to get on the side of the people while my Doro is ratcheting up pressure on him treason old why does assets and barring him from leaving the country, but he's also leaving his door open for talks telling Russian media that he would negotiate with the opposition for the good of Venezuela for the world and its future. But just not about their demand for new elections. Komo's specula- is the opposition's new envoy to the United States and he met president vice President Mike Pence at the White House yesterday. He's joining us now from washing. Mr. Vecchio, welcome to the program. Thank you very much for having meeker San. So this is a really important moment of the president of the United States of voice support early on for Mr. Guido. And now he's actually picked up the phone or they've talked on the phone anyway. And he's got support Guido from President Trump. Can you tell me exactly what kind of support the president offered? I think the most important thing is to support our agenda, and that's what we have been talking with the United States and also with Latin American countries and the European Union's union on our agendas, so clear Christiane, first of all we want to end user of power of mother, then we want to move to a democratic system establishing a transitional government. And after that, we want to call for a free and trust election as soon as possible. This is our were again, this were we want to move forward. And that's why we are requesting the support of the international community on it is important to mention I mean, this is not only about the United States. Again. This is a fight between, you know, the free world against dictatorship. I get it. I know you're saying this is a fight between dictatorship and democracy, just explained. For people who are watching, and they think well, hang on a second president Madero claims that he won the elections and won Guido has not been elected president describe how you going to square that circle. And how you going to resolve what many might have is a question, Mark. Will we have to keep in mind that my Ludo conducted a fake election last year in order to to keep six more years in power. So that was declared by the oil. Yes. In the InterAmerican system as illegal as illegitimate election. And that's why he's not longer the president. His doesn't have how thority to conduct the Brazilians the of Venezuela. I'm the given that we don't have a prison. In the constitutional order and following our constitution under article two three three uterine half constitutional president the president of the national assembly has to assume the competences of the present. So that's why we are claiming they'll get him a sea of a long way though as interim president of Venezuela. And I understand that you won't even be in a position to be able to organize new elections for quite a while. So given that and given that Maduro says he's willing to negotiate with the opposition only not over your demands for free elections. He says he's going to stay till twenty twenty-five when theoretically the current term he's embarking on expires. What is your plan b what do you do if this continues and persists and my Douro holds onto power. So as I said Gerstein, we want to continue with our agenda. If we don't stop do they use her patient of firewood of my. I mean, the crisis will be even worse. So we need to stop that on. If we're willing to negotiate our agenda on on they know that. So we need to put more pressure on the streets with our people. We have the momentum. We have the leadership of one way up we have the institution of the national assembly events wheel. And we have this report of the international community. So I hope we can conduct as move transition in order to establish a democratic government and this stop the suffering off Venezuela. So obviously, we're seeing pictures, and we know that people have come out.
