“Look Mom, this water bottle has a description. The water is described as ‘mouth-watering water,” said Porter with a chuckle. “This water calls itself smart, but I’m not sure that description seems very smart,” he added. This was too much for me. I completely broke down into a laughing attack over this ridiculous notion that this water I was drinking was so good because it was “mouth-watering.” After I couldn’t stop laughing, then all my children and their friends who were visiting broke into laughter that lasted about 15 minutes. Following our group laugh attack over the water, other silly stories were shared including one of our favorite books, “A Triune Tale of Diminutive Swine.” Then more and more laughs… Laughing draws people in and makes them feel comfortable and part of the group. It was especially good that we ended up having so many laughs that night because we …

Historically, as young people approached the age of 18, they would start to spread their wings and transition into adulthood by stepping outside of their comfort zones. Sadly, times have changed.Today, many teens are feeling increasingly more inadequate to attempt adult tasks. In fact, they often don’t even feel comfortable talking to adults. In the midst of this fragility epidemic, many teens don’t see that the answer to their “feeling-inadequate-for-adult-life problem” is staring them right in the face.Their parents.Dr. Leonard Sax, author of “The Collapse of Parenting,” said: “The parent-child relationship differs from the relationship between same-age peers.” This statement contradicts the once “revolutionary” parenting belief perpetuated by Dr. Benjamin Spock that parents should treat their children like friends with equal roles, instead of like children who need a parent’s love and nurturing.Sax continues: “The child expects to look up to the parent, to be instructed by the parent, indeed, …

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-8-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Hello Nicholeen, My question is about dinner conversation. Our conversations used to revolve around our youngest acting out at dinner, ie crying, arguing, not eating, We recently implemented the 4 skills, and the Rule of Three with consequences. We also have a family vision and a family standard. Within less than a week, she was no longer acting out at dinner. Now there is very little conversation during meal times. We are eating breakfast and dinner all together every day. We have five children from 11-20 that are all at home. Do you have advice for how to spark and maintain conversation during meal times? Thank you! Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-8-20_Q1.mp3 Downs and the Ups game. Or, the what you’re grateful for that day game. Family conversation card game.

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-29_20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Thank you for all the support you have offered in answering my questions on previous calls. I really appreciate being able to hear answers to my questions on the call recordings when I’m unable to be on the calls. One question I have wanted to ask as I have been working on the implementation course – how do I decide what an appropriate amount of privileges to offer kids in the day like screen time or snacks or time with friends (outside the pandemic) so that there is something they can lose if they lose privileges for 24 hours so they are more motivated to change if we get to the rule of three? We have five kids ages 7-15. Thank you! Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-29_20_Q1.mp3 Good question. Some parents tell me that their children don’t have any privileges to lose. That always worries me. There are …
