Fresh update on "middle school" discussed on How I Got Here with Dave Fiore

"The twists and turns of life that led them to where they are today. Everyone has a story worth telling, and I am really grateful that we get to bring a few of them to you. I truly have been changed by my conversations with these amazing people, and I'm confident you will be too. I'm Dave fiori. And in this episode, I speak with Robin hassler Thompson, the executive director of the survive and thrive advocacy center. Stack provides direct support for victims of human trafficking and focuses on community education. Robin says she has always loved learning, but when she got bored with high school in 1976, she jumped into politics. Not running for class president, but as a volunteer chair for Jimmy Carter's successful presidential campaign. She attended college in Washington, D.C., and went on to summer school at Oxford before landing in Tallahassee for a program that combined a masters in international affairs in a law degree. Her love of politics led her to the Florida House, the governor's office, and eventually on a State Department trip to Bangladesh that would change her life. Robin has spent much of her career focused on human rights, specifically violence against women and human trafficking, and says, I am doing what I'm supposed to be doing. We started our conversation talking about growing up in South Florida. I was there until I went to college, actually. So yes, I was born in South Florida, actually in Hialeah. Which is just ended county just south of there. And then, yes, went to elementary middle school, high school. I loved it. There was always the beach, my family was a big beach family and big picnic family, so being outdoors and all the time was wonderful. So that was that was fun. And I really had a childhood that had a lot going on all the time. I was, I was thankfully one of those kids that could kind of self entertain, so I was a big reader. I used to play some tennis and some sports. And yeah, I think back to that time, and I just think, you know, lots of stuff always going on, both my parents worked, had a kind of a big family. Yeah, well, tell me about that. What did your parents do? Well, my dad was an insurance salesman and my mom worked as a secretary, as we call them now at administrative assistance. Right. And so that was their profession. I'm actually, I think about it now. They were very hard workers. Both with high school degrees, essentially. So I'm actually the first person in my family to go to college, get higher education degree. And so we were just kind of there making it, you know? Solid middle class family. Okay. And you have siblings. I do. I have a younger brother, and I have two older step sisters. One older stepbrother who's deceased. Okay. And were you close growing up? Were you a little posse together or what was that dynamic like? Well, ours was a yours mine and ours family. If you know that phrase.

Dinesh and Debbie Discuss Firearms in the Classroom

"You know, I finally saw on social media. I just wanted those collages of all the faces of those kids. And it kind of hit me because all those kids have families. Just think about it. Babies on either babies. And you know, I was listening to the news this morning where one of the teachers, I think she was a teacher that was near that classroom. And she was sobbing. She was like, you know, we thought we were so scared, we all thought we were going to die. Because of course she heard the gunfire and all of that. And just, you know, I'm a former teacher, as you know, I taught elementary middle school and high school. And the first thing that I would have done, of course, is protect my students because the parents entrust me and doing that. And I think if I had been a teacher today, I would have definitely fought to have a firearm with me at all times. As a teacher, because as you know, I'm a holder and I was trained, I also did tactical training, which really helped me with moving targets and all of that. So I feel like I could have been well equipped to do that. I don't recommend that for somebody that is not careful with the firearm or confident with a firearm. And as you know, when you have a firearm, you are always having to practice. That is one of the things that they say that when you have a gun, you have to make sure that you know how to use it. And that you don't forget because that is something that can happen.

Elementary School Sues Students Over Pronoun Blunder

"Because this is really disturbing. A Wisconsin school district. According to the New York Post, has filed sexual harassment complaints against three middle schoolers for calling a classmate by a wrong pronoun. The school district, it's in keel 3600 residents there. It's charging three 8th graders imagine that. At the middle school was sexual harassment after an incident in April in which the students refused to use they to refer to a classmate who would switch pronouns just a month before this alleged incident. I mean, come on, guys. Come on, I mean, you know that we have a problem as a nation. When instead of focusing on things like baby formula and making sure the supply chain is there so that our infants aren't starving, when we're focused on things like using the right pronoun and it's sexual harassment if you don't, because somebody just recently decided to switch pronoun, I mean, come on.

Newsmax Host John Bachman Shares His Backstory

"John, bob, I'm glad to have you with us today on dot com's podcast. It's not going to be with you. Have you called my friend? I guess that's what happens when you share your waffle House menu selections. You really become tight with somebody. Well, you know, when we get to be friends, you know, when I tell you what to order at waffle House, then we've got it down there. Hey, as we get started, one of the things I love to do in this podcast and when I do especially people politicians, I do media people is everybody knows us and I found this to be true and I think you probably have as well. If they see us in the airport or they see us have they know us from this right here, they know it from the camera if you would. They don't know the background. So span just a few minutes telling us, you know, where are you from? How you got here and just give us a good taste of who you are. Well, I'm from Marietta, Georgia originally. I was born actually my parents live in kennesaw when I was born. And we moved to Tampa pretty quickly thereafter and live there for 8 years, but moved back to Marietta when I was 8 years old. And from 8 years on all the way through my 5 years at the university of Georgia and there after my first job in television was in Augusta, Georgia was my home. I love it. I love the braise. I love the dogs. Having the Olympics there was fantastic as well. And it was just, you know, I think I lived there in a perfect time when the state to me, we learned about a three pillars, right? Wisdom justice and moderation. And all three things were readily available to me. Growing up in Marietta, I went to Davis elementary middle school and Lassiter high school for those folks to know. But it was such a great community because people were moving to Atlanta from all over the place. My parents were actually from the northeast, my dad settled in Atlanta in the 70s with my mom when we moved back there, but at that time in the late 80s, early 90s Atlanta was such a boom town and we had people from all over the place. And it was just such a great melting pot of different Americans and all kinds of folks, different races and religions. And I really felt like I had a wonderful public school experience and when it came time for college, the only thing I knew is that I wanted to go to an SEC football school. My dad went to graduate school at the university of Florida, and he took me to a game when I was four years old. It was a Florida Miami game. And it was one of my earliest memories, and I just love the whole thing. And then, you know, my sister went to auburn, and I was spent some time with her at all. My older sister, and I was like, this place is great. All these people are so nice on the planes. And I was like, it's a little boring though. And then finally, I didn't think I was gonna get into Georgia but I did get in and I went there and I had a bunch of buddies of mine who are you older than me in high school that went there and I spent some time with them and the moment I walked on campus I knew I was

Ketanji Brown Jackson Has the Votes After Collins Boost

"At this point, I would have to say that judge katon G Brown Jackson looks like she will make it. To the Supreme Court. I saw today that senator Susan Collins of Maine said that she intended to vote for Jackson, now I think this is the first public statement by Republican senator saying that they were going to vote for Jackson. I think Romney said that he was undecided. He was looking further into her record, but I'm guessing that she's going to get one maybe two, maybe three, Republican votes, and that of course is enough. In fact, it gives the Democrats a small margin in the unlikely event that they lose mansion and or cinema. They've got Republicans to make up for it. So I think Jackson looks at this point to have relatively safe passage. But it's a very interesting development here, which is that one of the main themes in the hearings has been relatively light sentences handed out to people involved in child porn cases. And it turns out that The White House appears to have left out an important case that she decided less than a year before she was elevated to the D.C. circuit court and they did it because they didn't want her record to look bad. Now, the case is called U.S. versus Kane. And it involved really a massive download of files, 6500 files, children, elementary school, middle school, either nude, or in various compromising positions, but apparently there was also sadism, masochism. I mean, this was a horrible dump of really bad stuff. And the guy who did all this, the probation office said, listen, he deserves to go to prison for 84 months in the case. So 7 years. But can tanji Jackson goes, no, I'm gonna go below, and I'm gonna give him only 60 months, which is to say 5 years. Now, 5 years, 7 years. I mean, the point here is that there's a consistent pattern of ketanji Jackson minimizing the seriousness of these cases and letting these offenders go off with lighter

Col. Allen West and Rick Green Tell Us About the Patriot Academy

"It? When did the patriot academy start and how does it function? How can people get involved? Patriot academy dot com to learn more, but we started at 20 years ago in Texas at the Texas capitol, and then we started spreading across the country and hosting other capitals. And then when we created the constitution coach program, that's for anybody anywhere. You don't have to have any background in this. And Eric, these are the only constitution classes known to mankind where you will actually stay awake. And finish the class, all right? That you're setting a high bar. Yes, it is. You say awake. Come on. Throughout this entire class. Well, I'll tell you something. And I confess these things because I just think we should. But it wasn't until not even ten years ago. I wrote a book called, if you can keep it, which comes from the words of Benjamin Franklin, exiting the constitutional convention. And for the first time in my life, I was ashamed, and I am still ashamed that it took so long that I finally understood some things about how our glorious system of self government and liberty works. And the bigger takeaway for me was that if I had missed this generally speaking over the decades, it means that everyone my age and younger almost everyone has missed this. This used to be part and parcel of an American education. You could not get a high school diploma if you didn't get this stuff. This was the most basic thing, and that has, since the 60s effectively evaporated, which is why I wrote my book and I wrote it hopefully for young people, not just for all adults, but specifically for younger people, but they're all kinds of folks like you working along similar lines because it seems to me you understand what I finally understood that if you have a citizenry that doesn't get this, America is over. No, you're absolutely right. You're absolutely right, Eric, and I think that's the whole purpose here. You said American education. We don't have an American education. We have a cultural Marxist indoctrination that is happening in our school system. I mean, the left started out at college and university campuses. Now's in high school and now is down to middle school and they're trying to get it down into elementary school. And so what we have to do is start retaking that back in our homes in our communities and our churches even. And I think that's what the whole purpose is with the patriot academy is to specifically look at our young people 16 to 25, but then also we have this constitutional coach program where we have 12,000 of these constitutional coaches across the country because we have got to get people more engaged and more involved.

CNN Doctor Pleas for Public Schools to Remain Open for Children's Sake

"Chicago public school teachers, of course, should be at the very least their paycheck should be withheld. If not fired, they've now voted not to go back to in school learning, apparently for fear of the coronavirus of the new variant known as omicron. And here is what doctor Paul Allen, Professor of medicine, from Harvard, said about what happens to kids when they are denied in school learning. After in very simplistic terms, you're saying worse outcomes await kids if they're out of school than if they are in school. Explain. Yeah, thanks for having me back on Michael. Is that simple? We shouldn't close schools because the risks to kids talking about 5 to the elementary and middle school and high school students is low from this virus. And I'll put some numbers to this. The risk of hospitalization has hovered around one per 100,000 throughout the entire pandemic through the origin strain, the alpha strain, even through the delta strain in early evidence shows that this is about the same thing for omicron. The deaths, several major studies have shown hover around one to two per million. The American academy of pediatrics released report two weeks ago that called hospitalizations and deaths in kids quote unquote uncommon. On the flip side of this, the risks of being out of school are severe and they're accumulating fast. We have lost kids have lost 5 months they're behind 5 months in reading and math. Sorry, math scores. Just since the pandemic and remote learning has started. 1 million kids were totally unaccounted for expected to be in school and disappeared from the system. Schools are our first chance to detect neglect and abuse. New York City did a study that showed in just three months of school closures, 8000 reports of abuse and neglect were expected that never came in. They extrapolate this to the country. It's 300,000 reports of neglect and excuse and abuse that never came in. Kids rely on schools for food. 14 million kids weren't getting the food they needed when schools closed. This extends to women in particular working women who have borne the disproportionate burden of kids being home.

And obviously defended yourself. And so you get up there and then binger starts to then go after your Fifth Amendment rights. Talk about that. So I was on the stand and bingers starts commenting on my post arrest silent. And I was like, what the I was like, this is basic middle school constitution test stuff. I know this stuff. You don't comment on a defendant's post arrest silence. I literally every TV show movie you have the right to remain it's the first thing to write against self incrimination. So what's going through your mind at that point? I mean, I'm like, did he really just go there? And I was, I was astonished. I was in shock. I don't know about you, how you were when you heard that. I was like, I was pretty verbal in the gallery. I was like, oh, come on. Because it was just appalling. And then the judge stepped up, who, by the way, the judge is being wrongly attacked as being on your side. He was on the side of the constitution. Exactly. Not your side, definitely not being your side, because binger is a crazy person. Because by the way, this judge is known for if you, you know, if the jury comes back with a verdict of guilty, he's known for being a harsh by the book. Sentencer. So talk about this. So then the judge intervenes and issues one of the most harsh condoms. What was going through your head at that point? It took a lot to hold back.

The GOP Is the Party of Parents

"Question. Hey, Charlie, you just mentioned that the Republican Party should be the essentially become the parent party or the parents party. I want you to dive a little deeper into what that might look like from a policy perspective. What should a Republican parent party candidate run on? Well, first, let's start with the very obvious education. Recently, there has been an awakening when it comes to education in America. Parents are starting to wake up to the very same things that we have been warning about for 9 years that the education cartel in America is teaching young people to hate themselves. Hate their peers and hate their country. One of the great awakenings of this last year is how parents are starting to step up and challenge school boards, administrators, and curriculum, selection of what's happening in our schools. Here's one example, cut 100. When I say that America that Republican Party in the conservative movement needs to become the parents party it's to defend moms and dads like this one and cut 100, there's a Texas mom that erupts at the entire school board over a very graphic passage in a school book curriculum. This is going to be it's going to be so hard for some people to hear this. You're going to probably get mad at me for playing it. But this is what 6th graders are being exposed to. When you send them to public school. If you are a parent or grandparent listening right now? I'd say you're 9 year olds are probably being exposed to this if they're in public school. What is the parent party look like? It's removing this type of garbage from schools and representing moms like this one. Play cut 100. Take her out back, we boys figured then hand on the put it in her coin box, put it in her cornhole, grab a hold of that braid, rub that calico. You can find that on page 39 of the book called out of darkness, which you can find at Hudson Ben middle school and be cave middle school. All right, not gonna lie, I had to Google cornhole because I have the game in the back of my yard, but according to Wikipedia, cornhole is a sexual slang vulgarism for anus. I do not want my children to learn about anal sex and middle school. You are supposed to be educating our children. That's what the parent party looks like. People like

"About that stepping back from now. Well yeah the the idea for sort of trying to talk things through as you know bombs and girls together came from when our daughters had been much younger and the other mom was actually close friend of mine if she came to me because my daughter was getting her daughter in trouble because her daughter was behaving in ways that were problematic and she'd already kind of been designated the problem kid and my daughter was crying easily and the teacher actually played favorites. Not very nice way and so basically the other girl was in trouble the time and so she she got the four of us together and basically said you know To her daughter you know stop doing. Xyz it isn't nice. She doesn't like it. I know you don't mean any harm but it hurts her feelings so stop and then to my daughter like if you have a problem. Why don't you talk about it with the other girl. Please don't please. Don't go to the teachers crying. Because then she just gets in trouble and she doesn't understand what she's even done to you. She's not aware of it and that went fine. They both like sure and it was like fine. It was absolutely fine. So i thought that was a you know kind of workable. thing to be able to do and so it was earlier though. It wasn't in the middle school period when the middle school period did come along in there was just friendship. Drama in a girl group Very very typical. And so. I thought since i was friends with A couple of the bombs not as close as to the one in the other story. But i thought well maybe we could all four once again like sit down over a meal or something and just sort of send the basic message of like. You're not going to be together that much longer at school. you know. just make it work like you don't have to be best friends but just just make life pleasant for each other. Don't cause problems for each other bare minimum. Share friends you know. You don't have to be pulling everyone apart just just basically just kind of like behave decently And the other. Mom was very cold when i suggested. Just the idea of trying to talk which surprised me And said no. It's very important to let them work. These things out for themselves which is true. You know and so we did what you're supposed to do. We went to you know. We notified the school counselor who then tried to intervene with the girls Who avoided her like the plague of course and My daughter kept saying to me. Call the other moms. Do do something nice. it's not. That's not what you do you know and then i found out i mean years later i found out that the From another person that the moms had actually been micromanaging. All the friendship stuff the whole time and this other person when she told me about it said the moms made it so much worse because they created these there were conflicts that the girls would have worked out and would have worked their way through the moms made the it like a permanent problem that the girls couldn't find their way out of you know That was that was awful and it all. It left me feeling of course as though i were in seventh and eighth grade right because what had actually been happening. Is that my own friends. People thought were my friends. Were kind of scheming behind my back to exclude my daughter So an might be a while saying. Oh no you know. We're going to be very hands off and let the school took care of this so it was just instructive and you know. The book is full of stories like that from other adults who who ended up getting drawn into kid drama in the middle school years the kids would move on and you know there would be a mom be left with no friends because she there's one story in the book there's something too bad drama between the girls. Her daughter was actually bullied. Terribly by anonymous people Really suffered finally came back to school and was okay. Life is going on and the mom and question found herself with no friends because she hadn't issued a formal apology to the other girls mom over something. Her daughter had done in the right timeframe and there was no coming back from that. Now these stories. Just below my mind. And i hit them a lot. Wow okay all right so we don't. We don't want to be stepping in. Necessarily we wanna be stepping back and not adding to drama. We don't wanna make it more difficult than necessary but yet we wanna help our kids like we may have more skills. We may have more social emotional skills than sure we add seventh-grade anyway and we may want to help our kids. So what what what should we do what. What are some of the things we can do like leading up to middle school or during middle school. That i mean we don't want obviously you don't want to label our kids. We don't want to assume things we want to maintain you know. That's what we talk about. Mindful parenting is is like the attitude of of kindness and curiosity. We also talked about the idea of whose problem is it. You know it's your problem or is this your child's problem and then just being in that place of the helper in the show as if it's a child problem. So what can what can we do. Judith well i think there's so much of what you said that i want to respond to. I think my mindfulness very much at the core of what i think is the most important thing we can do. Which is to aware of when we're getting triggered ourselves and when our own emotions are on the line and are driving the way we respond we parents because that is usually that usually means that we're sort of off kilter off-balance if our emotions are coming up too strongly and that we needed to take a moment and reset before we talk about anything with our kids and you know so often something will happen at school. It's painful kit goes back to the. It's usually the mom. I mean it. It shouldn't just be but Usually is You know that they're just not all day long waiting and then you know. See them after school and say like what happened. What happened today and the kid had moved on and forgotten about it. So you don't wanna go digging in and sort of making something lasts longer and the other thing is knowing your limits. I mean. I actually think yeah in a certain sense. Our social skills better developed there. I don't think there is well developed as we tend to think when it comes to dealing with the problems of middle school because nobody really helped us by and large at that point. So i think very often. We don't have the tools to be able to help them in a productive way but people who work in schools who with these kids do or at least should and if you're fortunate enough to be in a school that isn't too huge and where to under-resourced they are watching. They're seeing what's going on and they're able to talk to the kids in a way that meets them where they are developmentally. and that also isn't taking sides. I mean we will. naturally.

"Frontal yes that. That's that's insane because we've seen a lot of bad teams. Those those sixty to sixty five mads the expansion teams the saint louis browns You know the the was the two thousand three detroit tigers. None of those teams were bad. Is what the orioles have been in these eighteen games. I wanted to get your your feel. We talked so much about major awards. Like mvp cy young award rookie of the year Who do you think are the leaders for platinum glove winner of the best defenders in each league so platinum glove is the fan vote right. So that's after we got the goal glover's that's what fans bohdan on line. So we know that some of it is you know some popularity everything else. And so when. I look at the leaderboard for outs above average and i see that matt chapman is third among all all players. Excuse me Actually he's tied for second. He is tied for second in the majors in outs above average matt chapman always wins these types of things so i am guessing that it could be him but in the national league. It's interesting nick. Ahmed is really always at the top of these leaderboards. When you look at above average not sure that being on the diamondbacks he's usually The tape of guy. Who's going to win the platinum. That's why i was clarifying With the fan vote. But if i mean what about brandon crawford. He's having such a resurgent season and we know. Giants fans are obviously very vocal voting. Online i think back to some All star games back in those even years. Aw previous even years. But he's Let's see he's six. He's tied for fifth. Excuse me in house above average among all players in the majors. He's a noted previous glove winner. He had really bad defensive year. he's now back. I think he could be a good one in the national league. And just real quick before you go The other day we were in the dugout with joe man at the just before the little league classic and it was making a case passionately about david fletcher. His second baseman winning a gold love this year handicap that you know. I love when manager support their players. And i think that is kind of what's going on here and i don't fault him whatsoever. David fletcher has been good at second base. No question is plus one ounce above average. that means he's above Above the major league average which is just set at zero. But i don't know that he has been necessarily Above and beyond special there. I think that you know given all the positions you've played in his career. I think it's really great to see that. He is playing so well at second base. After you know. He was plus eight in outs above average at third base in two thousand nineteen. I mean basically being an entirely different position. But i'm not sure that he would be the clubhouse later they're all right. Sarah thanks for doing this. Thing's driving me bleacher.

"Great buster. How are you doing great. I wanna talk to you about upside and downside k. Two categories for today. I'm gonna let you decide which one we're going to go first. We're gonna go upside or downside. You know i'm gonna go upside purse exactly all right. Let's talk about the yankees. Ten straight victories after beating the winning the first game of their series in atlanta last night. They'll play again today than they go out to oakland which is a really big series against the athletics. We've got the athletics in the yankees sunday night. Baseball coming up One thing that jumps out when he watch their games now Besides the depth of their lineup are is the absolute command of the strike zone of their hitters. Would he got on that so since anthony. Rizzo debuted for them on july thirtieth at. They're taking four point. One pitches per plate appearance. Which is the most in the majors. Now they also led prior to that but the number has gotten bigger. It's really hard to quantify because it's all decimal places because we're talking about per plate appearance but they are taking more pitches than previously already leading majors in this category. Now they have even more of a lead. And that's something that aaron boone has talked about since he's been the manager of the yankees. I mean not just this year. But i can remember sitting in press conferences of his in twenty nine. He talked about owning the strike zone. So this is how. I think he says the team at its best. This is what they're doing right now. He sees them as savages in the box right. Exactly that's really what it comes down to when you think of the great yankee offense in the last twenty years it's always been built on that that you have essentially gauntlet for the opposing pitcher to run through In trying to to get through yankees lineup which has been so much more effective when he got on the cincinnati reds team that now leads in the race for the second nationally wildcard so there at sixty three point five percent playoff odds which is in quite in the nineties. I mean just for comparison. The yankees are All the way up there ninety one point six percent but they were it eat team point six percent back on third and if we go back even before the trade deadline nine point eight percent on july twenty six now. A lot of this is because of that great offense. We talked about that with that two weeks ago. I believe When i was benching. Jose barrera who then call up of course. Then you had that great conversation with nick crawl but the offense is really. What's carrying them here. They're ethan the majors and way too runs. Credit plus their fifth in slugging percentage. They don't steal bases they don't do those kinds of things. They have seven fewer stolen basis than anybody else in the majors. Which i think Anyone who's watched the reds this year. Kind of believe that that's what their offense is built on. Mostly just slogging but the pitching. I think that they're starting pitchers are a little bit underrated. I think that they do have the ability to carry them. If they were to get to the postseason they have a three point. Nine one starters. The ira and wider gutierrez has been really good for them. He's a rookie. His first sixteen starts of his career. Is it three point. Eight sixty are as turned in a bunch of quality. Starts the relievers the question. They've been a bit better lately but not quite as good as you would want them to be but a of this is also just based on what the padres have done which we'll get to letter. Give me something a wander franco the raise rookie who struggled initially after coming into the big leagues so his last twenty four games. He has reached base safely in all of them. That is the longest on bass strait for any player at age. Twenty or younger since. Ken griffey junior in nineteen ninety and the top of this list. Is you know frank. Robinson i believe like forty three so i'm not sure he's going to get there but this has really been an incredible turnaround in that span. Those twenty four games starts on july twenty fifth. So just about a month now Three twelve batting average. Three five on base fivethirtyeight slugging percentage and the thing that has really done is. He's not swinging missing. He's not striking out. And it's really impressive for a player again. Who's twenty years old to get to the majors as you said struggle a bit but now he's already showing that elite play discipline a lot of what we about from him. You know in the minors. I think that we should evaluate players of for a sixth tool. And that would be projected confidence. Okay which i think is important to some degree wander rocco to made if once soto sets the bar on that and gets an a plus wonder franco to me is like an a plus because you watch him sarah and he just looks like he knows he's going to figure it out. Would you agree with me absolutely. And i think he looked like that from day one so i don't think there was any concern even when he did get off to that slower start. I mean all of the confidence in the world. He just swagger. I mean it's so cool to see out slayer that young and on that team. That really needed that offensive booth from him all right. Let's go downside in the san diego padres. Who yesterday is i was just talking about. Just does of fired their pitching coach. Larry rothschild the best era in baseball on june fourteenth. And then i guess he was a genius for the first two and a half months and idiot for the last two months because they decide to fire him late in the season. The padres so the first thing i'm gonna point out here is the playoff odds since i mentioned the reds you saw that difference. Obviously the padres are the opposite. I if you're thinking of a graph one going up one going down the padras of the one. That's going way down so on july twenty seven. They had ninety one point. Seven percent playoff odds again. That's basically where the yankees are today. And as of this morning it is twenty six point three percent it is a very precipitous drop. I tweeted out this autograph. You can grab them on fan graphs and it just goes straight down. I mean slope all this stuff. We heard about in math class in middle school. That is what they are doing very steep slope and the pitching has obviously fallen apart here but a lot of that has been injuries. I'm not sure that you know as you were saying. Genius was june fourteenth. Now not as much but you know. They had to sign jake area and he did not pitch well and managed to get injured. Jake area had just been released by the cubs. I mean that wasn't necessarily going to solve anything. But you know. I was hoping for them. That fernando tateishi junior coming back with sort of end this run but even he can't lift up everything that is struggling for them right now. Let's talk about the baltimore orioles Who go into tonight. With the eighteen consecutive losses they are threatening the american league record for most consecutive losses. So they are as we now not doing great. I'm so sorry. Taylor i was thinking about you as i was looking into these numbers with the orioles. But so as you know nineteenth street would tie for the seventh longest losing streak in the modern era already into that top ten. We know the two thousand five royals obviously also lost nineteen straight but they've been outscored One hundred forty nine to forty seven excuse stumbled over it because it is so ridiculous. They've been outscored by a hundred and two runs during this span that is the worst run differential and any eighteen games fans at least nineteen ninety one. And you know it's just it's tough to watch. I mean i i. I don't like look into those numbers. Obviously they're not fun. That's why we went with upside. I but you know they had recently a one run loss. All the other losses had been by multiple runs. Maybe that means things are looking up and knots my attempt to still make it positive so i want you to repeat that number okay. The worst eighteen game stretch for any team since. Nineteen o one. That's what you're saying. Yes.

Do you have any advice to the to the incoming middle schoolers especially with the current ours pandemic and just everything that's going on but also just in general like gray sets in the along the lines of try and get involved. Yes so I think definitely the biggest thing is getting involved but as we know that my clubs and stuff might change for incoming middle schoolers with this whole thing going on There might be less people loud and it might be different And I think Since I'm going into high school and I know that things probably aren't GonNa be the same as they were for high schoolers last year. It's probably going to be the same for Middle School. Things are probably going to have to change. And they're gonNA be restrictions just because that's how everything's going right now as much as I hope like it just goes back to normal. I think there's always just going to be a little bit of things that are going to change because of this So you just need to be patient with that and understand that they're doing it for reason it's first safety But yeah definitely get involved if there's a way to get involved Definitely just like I would say getting like really good friends that you can trust is one of the biggest things you just need to be able to get a friend that you can trust to tell things because honestly if you don't have someone to vent to you're not gonNA survive I definitely vented a lot to my friends and without that I feel like I would have just kept Joan side and it would have been a.

"Yes so I think definitely because me and Lauren. Both got called backs for musical and being a sixth grader. That was like not expected at all but I think that's really when our friendship started growing because we started talking a lot more and especially once we got into the show. I feel like we started talking more But I feel like definitely in seventh grade is when we actually started like being really good friends because we were both inquire together. Yeah Yeah So. If you didn't know me and Lauren were part of Liberty Belles. It was fun choir With our director and a lot of our friends were in it which was really fun and in seventh grade. We were both Sopranos and we set next to each other and we just started talking a lot more. I'm not exactly sure why we started talking. But I believe it's because one of your friends is Kenner not really being a jerk or my other friends so yod i.

"Fm to get started again anchored get started now next up. We talked to theater Geek Abby. Who Discusses All the different ways that theatre has impacted her life both positively and negatively? And how actually? That wasn't the path that she thought she would take alot. Abby GonNa work this time. Let's hope so. All right you ready to talk about the best and worst Middle School Memories. I am ready all right. Begin with whatever interesting story and like this is for all three years so if you have anything interesting from sixth grade go ahead okay so I definitely say. Overall middle school experience was very good because it definitely helped me find myself and one of my biggest now is musical theater and I would never be entrusted not without middle school because in sixth grade. I tried out for the middle school musical and totally wasn't expecting to like it or anything and I ended up getting the lead which was crazy because sixth graders usually. Don't get that I know without that experience. I just I wouldn't be as interested in it as I am now. That's true so I think that those things definitely I would agree like I was interested in it but I wasn't some Abbas super excited about now I really really love it. Yeah I totally agree. I mean I really wasn't interested in all before Middle School which was really weird because my parents were super surprised when I signed up for theater as like an elective. They're like what the heck because I I've always been kind of like shot by and like not really wanted to be up in stage in front of people so I think they like didn't expect me to like it or anything and then you know try out for the play was not how to super small role. And then I'm I liked it and I thought okay would be fun to just do this again. Just get to know how this works and so I did. The musical and I definitely was not a small part again so that was definitely a weird experience going from literally three words to tons and tons of lions. Yeah I mean was like overall. That was a good experience. The weren't there some struggles with it to Ya. I mean definitely being a sixth grader. Who definitely didn't expect to get it. There were eighth graders. Who for sure did not want me to have and there is definitely people who were nasty about it and rude and but at.

"I will good enough. Sorry I need to cough again. So my favorite memories from Middle School in Sixth Grade I really did like screwed overall. That was a good year There were definitely some ups and downs. But I think one of my favorite things that happened was getting involved in feeder This was the first time I add. I mean I don show in the pathogen anti junior once but I just play Mrs Pew. It wasn't anything super interesting but I took theatre arts. This year was the only. You're actually class instead of like getting involved in the club but I did both but I got involved with the class and I had the best teacher ever. I mean her name is Miss. Murray and I love her. I love her lover lover. She is so so fun end. She's a great teacher. I learned a ton and that cautious my favorite. I mean I think one of the only reasons I mean. That class was also super easy but one reason that. I always think I got an A. alike very consistently as I'm not really afraid to yell so basically everybody in that class. I was always given the yelling roles like a short little script and I enjoyed it. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I'm surprised I didn't lose my voice because I was really loud. I don't think I'd be that loud anymore but I would yell and I mean one of the things that we did once is. We played a game because we played like theater games. All the time machine ended up. Actually I did. My Birthday Party was themed feeder and we play a whole bunch of theater games but one of my like was Minute about getting somebody off the bench. So basically everybody's coming order you had to. Somebody was on the bench. And then you had the comic character on your own and basically Improv and try and get him off the bench without touching them. Like being kind of you could say oh. Did you hear that Peyton? Manning has a sale right over there and then you know if the guys like a football player who wish football over. I don't know I said Laker. If we like football or Peyton manning go see go to peyton manning store at the sale or whatever but you have to watch the person in front of you because the way that they get you off. The bench is the way that Basically an experts. If the person who's you're going to be trying to get off the bench she will have just washed. Got Somebody off the bench. Kind of weird. I don't know if that was perfect explaining but oh well so eventually I got up there. I decided I wanted to say something really awkward and make everybody uncomfortable because I like doing that in real life and I'm pretty good at it so basically basically it like breaking the social norm and so naturally I was like I'm just GonNa talk about puberty and make everybody uncomfortable and being in sixth grade. Everybody did not want to talk about puberty because we just recently had the talk and everybody was like no no. We're talking about Uber. So basically it was super awkward and so I got up there and I said something along the lines of hey do you..

"Man box according to society or or blond in the women's box according to society I had them all answer at the same time and it was sorta based voice consensus where it was going to go. It was almost US near unanimous agreement on every single one and for the parts the boys and girls were in complete agreement for both so they collectively decided things like tender. Hindering Compassionate could go into the girls box only and things like strong and embiid could go into the boys only and what was really powerful about. This activity was They were able to see such clarity. That when you address one groups issues and the constraints that one group is grappling with then that WBAP benefits both benefits everybody. They were really on the same team and it and it was clear to both of them. At that point. It's such a concrete. Exercise is to which is great because kids this age. They're beginning to have abstract thoughts and be able to function on that but they're still really concrete in a lot of ways so when you can literally see that we put strong appear for boys but then over here is this girl who does shotput shotput and is awesome will clearly. She's strong so wait. Maybe these things that we've been taught aren't entirely accurate. It helps them see this in themselves and their friends and it also makes them feel a little manipulated by society. And if you really WANNA get a kid to have the courage courage to break outside of those constraints tell them that society is manipulating them at this for this age about really powerful motivator and so if they I feel like someone is telling them who they should be in what they should do then they are going to Bristle they are not going to like all of these adults being so directive with them about their choices behaviors and they're going to be more likely to actually act as their authentic selves. So Phyllis I asked in my voice alive facebook group. If anyone had questions for you they were very excited that we could bring this directly to you and questions was how to keep them safe from trying vaping and other substances that their friends might have so I recently learned about something called inoculation theory. It's a professor Josh Compton at Dartmouth College and what inoculation theory is. Is this idea that you can inoculate someone and against a behavior you don't want them to do in the same way you inoculate them against the virus and the way it works is and I'll use vaping in this case as an example. Although it's it's cool about this research is that if you do it with enough scenarios it will generalize and it will be able to apply. I'll give you a second example after so for vaping you so you might say to them when you are at school. There might be a time when there are kids. Who Want you to come with them in the bathroom? And you might want to do it because you really want to fit in with those friends and you don't really think aping is bad dangerous. It's it's basically just fruity flavors and it's not as bad as smoking but actually that the advertisers. I'm trying to convince you when in fact there is a lot of good science that says that it's just as addictive as smoking and it just either the various way it can harm you and you're not looking to use scare tactics. You have to make sure that you're giving them factual information but what you're doing is you're telling them what kind of situation they might face and you're giving them away to think it's through in multiple ways before they're in it so another example. Yeah go ahead and again. You're kind of using their desire to not be manipulated by the media by other people using that positive way. Yes here's another example. Let's take gossip. You might take to your kid. And by the way boys gossip as much as girls which is another nest that people have that only girls engaged in relational aggression. Boys can be pretty good at it too so you could say to them when someone tells you a really juicy piece of information information you are going to be tempted to share it because everyone likes to have the best story and it is fun to be the keeper of information but you know what even more satisfying to be known as a loyal and trustworthy friend to be the person that people come to when something really important and big is going on in their life. So you're framing these scenario than ways where you're acknowledging what they're going to have to be what they're up against that interference and interference can be all kinds. The things that could be wanting to fit in it could be jealousy. It could be anger. It could be anything so you're crying them to expect that interference and then giving them a counter hunter dialogue that they can retrieve in these moments where they're going to be tempted to do the wrong thing really wish I talked to you. Three kids ago Phyllis so phyllis I'm just curious how I work with a lot of parents and I just want to give them the support and love and mid reassurance and it's all gonna be okay and yet their future pacing. They're worried they're they're middle. Schooler isn't anything can get into college and they're going to end up in jail. And how do we reassure parents bring them back into the present with their kids kids even though it might feel kind of ugly in the present with out of control behavior with the kid who's sending pictures of his private privates do his friend experimenting with vaping other substances cursing at their parents. Not You. Yeah no not getting off devices when asked playing loud music. What are your words? I know that's a lot. But what are what are your words. There's of reassurance to these parents I would worry when your kids stops pushing back because when your kid arguing with you when your kids pushing your buttons than what they are doing is they think they're having a productive conversation with you. They're trying to figure out what mysterious thing is going on in your head. Yes they might eight rebel against it but they also very much care about your values and what you expect and hope for them and they also have big dreams and hopes for themselves and they two are frustrated when it's messy and things don't go as planned and I just remind parents that isn't the greatest gift to let them experiment and make mistakes. Estate can be there to help them recover and help them build that resilient so that when they're thirty and you're not by their side they know what they need you to pick up the pieces. They know how to make them and they know how to regulate their emotions I would as a parent just constantly look at it as building. What their way I were they talking back to the teacher? Why are arguing with me? What is it that they need? And how is there an alternative way that I can meet this need so that it's not quite as messy. And how can I give them a path back to being a good kid hit as quickly as possible and just be consistent and lobbing because. Shane is going to get you nowhere anyway. And if we maintain high expectations the the research shows that there are more likely to live up to our expectations but those expectations also have to be reasonable. And it's just a fact that parenting is kind of a messy and uneven path and kids have big growth spurt intellectually and emotionally and sometimes they take two steps back and the best we can do for them is to help them recover from those mistakes and move forward. If you have not picked up a copy of villas book yet. I highly recommend it. It is middle. School matters the ten key skills. Kids need to thrive in middle school and Beyond and and she's got a whole separate chapter in there specifically looking at boys so if that's your concern you skip right ahead to that one.

"Fatal says is a stew of simmering during warm owns shifting relationships and increased expectations. It is also a time of massive confusion and overwhelm home both for middle school boys and their parents. Today we are talking with Phyllis Fagel parent counselor and author third of Middle. School matters the ten key skills. Kids need to thrive in middle school and Beyond and how parents can help welcome. Welcome Phyllis thanks for having me today. We should mention that you are not just an author. You are not just a school counselor. You are in the trenches with the rest of US parenting teens and a middle schooler. I believe yet I'm on my middle school number three. He's my last to go through. He's in sixth grade now. So does it get easier. I think third children in general are easier because they have to go through through a gentler way they just sort of know that everyone is tired and they tend to be more easy going. I could have just gotten lucky. He but he seems to be a pretty chill middle score. I think that third and fourth children might be a little easier partly because we have lowered our expectations -tations dramatically. You know you know a lot more now about what is reasonable to expect from a middle school boy than you did. When you started this journey journey at one hundred percent true so middle school boys one of the most fascinating things to me as a pair of Boyce voice has been the insight into what middle school boys are really thinking about and how I perceived middle school boys say when I was in seventh grade? You work with a lot of boys. I know you facilitate boys group so share with us. What have you learned what is on the minds of middle school boys? I think the misconception about middle school boys. That's most prevalent is that they're really immature that their ears they're not interested in unloading the psychological burdens that they're grappling with and that they had here and enjoy adhering to a lot out of the gender stereotypes that we hold about boys and one thing. That's calm clear over the years particularly through the boys group which has been a safe space for them To admit what they're really thinking about and what they really care about is bad. Boys very much wanted to connect with their friends. They very much want you have meaningful bonds. Where they can confide in their friends and know that they can trust their friends they really want to be able to be their authentic selves in? That might mean they really like school and they really don't like sports courts. I think another misconception is that they don't worry about things like body image. What I've found over the years and I think social media is in part responsible responsible for this is that boys are getting subjected to all of these unrealistic images about who they should be in what they should look like and I'm hearing more from boys about body and security? I think that whole body image issue is so tough for boys in middle school because they're such a drastic range. I've gone to middle school basketball ballgames and some of those kids are shaving and have full mustaches. And then there was like my kid at that point in time who still looked like he was in third great but he was actually in seventh grade. Yeah then what makes it even harder is. You're suddenly in a new developmental phase where you're acutely aware of exactly how you stock doc up to everybody around you so a year earlier you might not have cared that you are half the height of the kid standing next to you on the bleachers during the chorus concert but suddenly all you can think about is what if I never grow. What if I'm the shortest person on the planet for the rest of my life and that matters in a way that it didn't matter before And and you are very aware of other people and you're starting to help other people like you and when all the images you see are of these very attractive attractive very mature men. That's tough yeah and then on top of all of that. They're starting to get interested in romantic relationships chips. So they're more aware of how they stack up to their peers. In terms of their level of attractiveness to whatever gender they happened to be attracted to but that also so come into play at this age. And how do we as parents support them. We can reassure you're gonNA grow you. Will you know oh you will. By the time you graduate from high school you will probably be shaving but as you say in the meantime so I think that very well meaning instinct is to reassure them that their time will come and that they will become taller and that this is a short-lived phenomenon and that they're great and perfect just the way they are but that invalidates where they're coming from and so more effective approach for helping them feel better is to say. I felt like the shortest kid and the clash. That would bother me too and I can understand why this is troublesome for you and then tell them perhaps. There's a story story of someone else in the family. He was a late bloomer. Who started out really short you now you know Ankle Bob is six four but also reassuring them that whatever or they are? We'll be good enough and that's really what they're looking for. Not for you so much to say you're going to be this high or that hike but just to let them know especially at an age when they're forming their identity. I'm trying to figure out if they're good enough to really reassure them that they're perfect just as they are that. Am I good enough question. You write in. Your book is a AAC core question for all middle schoolers boys and girls. But I think it's something that's really important for us as parents and educators grandparents to to keep in mind that these kids are looking all around them for reassurance. Basically that they're okay. Yes and with boys the way they tried to you get that reassurance can sometimes seem Veer toward the obnoxious. So they might yell something out. That's an appropriate. They might push someone together right. Hey that's been. They might use humor in ways that others think are rude and so we have to also remember that while they're trying to figure out if they're good enough and they're doing everything they can to make sure they're good enough and funny enough and well like you're not they also are lacking and skills and we have to cut them a lot of slack as they are developing those skills else we have to dig into this obnoxious part. Having lived with four boys I am acutely familiar with what you're talking about and you wrote a few things in in your book that just cracked me up. In one sentence you wrote a mature eighth grade. Boy May baffle his parents by sticking his head in a toilet for fun on social media And I was sitting in a public place that I just burst out laughing because yes boy mobs especially this does not make sense to you us. How break this down help explain it and how do we know like should I worry about this? Should I let this happen. How do respond so I completely understand that as a boy mom myself they are capable of doing things that are battling one of the other stories I share in? The book is about a kid. Kid who four or five for shock value started exchanging pictures with a friend on on his same sports team of his private parts parts and they were just moving around. It wasn't sexual. It was just silly and then the mom was spot checking his own team across a bunch of pictures of her kids kids private parts and some other kids private parts and was like what is best. She just really couldn't make heads or tails of that but felt he had gone too far. Lauren knew that there was some teaching that had to happen. Related to to what they were doing to expose themselves in that way and permanent and all of that so it's impossible for us as adults who are rational logical thinkers. Choose to view something like most of the time or we try. We like to think of ourselves that way. It's hard for us to see something like that and make sense of it. But if you're a bad boy and you think it's really hilarious. Then you're going to want to do more of it. You might even want to send it to like some other people so other people can appreciate how funny you are. Yeah because it's really funny. No I just shared this story the other day with a group I was talking to my son. And although maybe don't turn me in Tom for sharing this story other than to your podcast listeners. So he came home and he said I want to tell you something but I'm afraid that if I tell you then you you will never get me a phone and I said well. I'm never getting your phone anyway. So you may as well tell me this story and he said well. Here's what my what happened between a couple of my friends. And he shared this story of it with a story about an hour and a girl and the boy had asked the girl to send him a picture. Sure without her shirt on and they kind of knew better and I guess they decided to include the keeney top so it wasn't quite as scandalous uh-huh and they loved each other. 'cause they're sixth graders and it's true love so she sent the picture and then they thought it would be really funny. The the two of them together totally consensual totally in good fun. Thought it would be really funny to doctor the picture and give her a porn star beads. Oh and yeah. Yeah and so when they did that then they were even more amused by their extreme creativity and it was hilarious and because it was hilarious area decided to send it to the forty five students boys and girls in their shared kept. Yeah Oh and it actually gets worse believe it or not but the way it gets worse I think says so much about boys and how they love hard and they care hurt and they mean well and they're just making some blenders along the way. So what next is the kids in this text. Groups didn't give them the reaction that they wanted there. Is this kind of stunned silence. Yes you know sort of a dude. What are you thinking? At which point the girl was no longer happy with the decision and the boy was feeling bad that she wasn't feeling good about it so he did the most logical rational reasonable caring loving thing he could possibly do which was to host a doctor picture of himself. Oh boy oh it makes sense in like Sandler and boy world right right. It made a lot of sense to him and it was it was loving. It was really caring. And he's so bad that she was embarrassed and he didn't want her to feel alone so he did the same thing and of course his gesture was met with the exact same response as hers. Only at this point I think a mother who was monitoring somebody somebody in that group chops tax. Shut the thing down and that was the end of it but what I love about that story that it reveals so much about boys at this age you know. Are they love hard. They care her they mean well they WANNA be funny. They wanted he like they want to connect to and impress but they don't really have that skill L. set to pull it off in a way that doesn't sometimes occasionally result in humiliation and embarrassment and odd shock on the part of the parents right that that story also reveals to me why parenting these children is so challenging because when we put our lens on that without talking to the children we can get a whole different narrative out of that and if we start reacting based on that then we create eight misunderstanding and distance in anger and that's problematic and then the other thing that makes me think about in your book you used the term hinge generation a hinge generation to describe this generation of boys. And.

"Lake. I'm gonna fight you right now. Like for real because he was let me but not much older than me. But i was like a straight fight you right now and i promise you your boys will not help and you'll be the laughing stock of the school because i fucking beecher s so i was straight like angry and i don't think he's ever seen me angry and i can get really angry. Okay like i have had people tell me that. They didn't want to get to know me because the only time they had ever seen me was when i was in a debate with somebody or arguing with like my siblings or whatever. 'cause i get scary when i'm angry. So he legitimately was scared. And i was like thank fucking god and he left me alone. He left me alone. The rest of the school year wasn't much left. But he left me ron alone versus school year. He would avoid me in the hallways and he wouldn't talk shit anymore and then as like middle school went on because i think he was. I think we graduate. So i think he was there the other two years but like he would make fun of me sometimes but he for the most part left me alone after that like i had other issues but he left me after that. Because i'm like. I promise you i will beat your ass right now and you will not have a good time at school if you keep fucking making fun of me and you're not about to follow me home. Because he was straight like. I knew when he walked home usually. It wasn't the way that i go. So i'm like why are you walking this way. And he couldn't say anything to that so he just left me alone. And i was like hud luhya. Oh and his friend who asked me out like later Dating this really pretty girl ovals like you is like a good couple him. And i probably wouldn't have made a good couple because like i said the disparity of like how popular and cute. He was me. And i know that sounds like being myself up. But like that's truly how. I felt and he ended up dating a girl that was so pretty in so sweet and i was like there. You go the yes. You guys are good so happy for them. But i guess the moral of the story is if someone's crossing a boundary with you and they're trying to make you feel like shit like i really don't know why this kid felt the need to make me feel like shit every day. Because i wasn't doing. I never even knew he was there until he started bullying me and even his friends were like what are you doing here. And it was just like excessive right and so moral story is is when you get to a certain threshold like you got to stand for yourself personally. Recommend sanford's of before you get to like the ultimate threshold. I'm gonna beat this kid's ass but as someone you've for yourself because even like because i was a kid then. The adults weren't doing anything about it. Like i know that they knew that he was making fun of me all time. I know that they knew that because he was not slick with it. He was not like secretive. He was every single kid new. So there's no way that the teachers didn't know. And i don't know if he was ever like talked to about it but he was literally in every single class like in the library in jim especially jim Literally every single glasses. There's no way that one adult new and it never stopped. Until i was like. I'm going to beat your fucking ass. And we're not on school property anymore and i do know how to fight because my dad was a boxer. So do you wanna fight. I will fight you right now. I don't care if you're a boy..

I didn't want that. So because i still to go to the dance so i told him no and he honestly looked like a little disappointed he probably thought i was gonna say because like i said he's a popular kid asking l. a.

Oh you're trying to go on a diet like shit like that like it was constant and it was brutal like thinking back like it was brutal and honestly i was a little impressed with how much new material he came up with because sometimes he would use the same things but he would come up with new material like every day like it was weird but so it was like the entire school year right and it was constant and even like other kids were like. Why are you doing that. Like his friends obviously would laugh but even sometimes they'd be like bro lake. You've been over this already lake. Why are you so talk like many other kids. It's not like he was the bully of the grade. He like all the guys. He was friends with mostly like he wasn't friends with the super popular kids or the super athletic kids. But it's our grade was so small like are. The sixth grade was linked to classrooms. The seventh grade was willing to an eighth grade was willing to so it wasn't like a huge thing and the sixth grade was kind of like cut off from the seventh and eighth graders and from elementary school. Like it was weird. We were like in limbo but it wasn't like he was making fun of everybody else like all the other nerds and it was really weird and i know some people might listen to this in be like. Oh he liked you that. I promise you was not the case i promise you. He was straight disgusted. It was not like a fake. Like oh you make fun of someone because you like her. I promise you wasn't bad. But anyway the part that i remember the most because like i said his bullying wisconsin the part that i remember the most was.
