What are some of the things or kinds of rituals you guys do with your family? Some of the things that I still do that I got from my mom are that, like, I never grew up cuddling, but, like, on the weekends because my mom was so busy, I…

Balancing Support and Independence in Teenagers’ Lives

I read an article about how a lot of teens today actually have less independence than previous generations had. Because now parents can, like, track on their phones. You know, you’ve got college kids where their parents are contacting the professors, their parents are finding roommates for them, their parents.…

From Expectation to Appreciation

Exchanging expectations or trading them in for appreciation. I never understood what it meant until I started to realize all the times that I was angry, all the times that I was frustrated, and all the times that I felt like I didn’t have control over things. And I realized…

Adolescent Adventures

What is going on with teenagers nowadays? Like, especially with these teens, “Oh, sex is not a big deal. I’m curious about it.” I’m seeing it more after COVID. Like, once people are able to get out after being closed up for a year, they’re going out. But it’s so…

Meditation to Calm our Kids

How is Gratitude Growing with Us

I was 38 when I got pregnant with twins. And I remember they’re like, “Oh, you’re high-risk.” And I’m like, “Oh, because I have twins?” They’re like, “No, because your age.” And I’m like, “What? My age puts me at high risk?” They’re like, “Yeah, over 35, you’re considered high…

Finding Appreciation

Some people put a lot of pressure on themselves to find appreciation for everything. And here’s what’s strange about that: That’s actually an expected appreciation. They have an expectation that there’s appreciation. So what are we really talking about, then? We’re really talking about and sharing with everyone that the…

Family Recharge Day

It took me a long time to learn how to self-care because I thought self-care was selfish, I thought self-care was being lazy, and I thought self-care meant I wasn’t getting things done that needed to get done and I was going to get behind. When you change the meaning…
