Whole Call: Question: My 15 yr old daughter has a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out). She seems to never really be in the present moment as she is always looking way ahead at the next social event and cannot stop talking about it. She’s missing out in her present moment. We have discussed this together but she seems totally unaware that she’s doing it. It’s maddening and sad. I can see she has anxiety that manifests itself this way. How do I patiently help her to be in the present moment without calling her out on it (since it is usually in front of other people). Do I take her aside every time to point it out? Do I patiently wait till she has matured enough to see it? I need your suggestions and help. Thank you so much.

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-15-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: I am in the very baby beginning phase of starting TSG. I have only read the book and haven’t even sat the kids down to teach them the 4 basic instructions yet. But what I’ve been thinking about is our paid activities (like gymnastics, dance, horseback riding etc) and the loss of privileges. If their activity falls on a day they have lost their privilege do you make them miss it? The problem is that they are expensive and making them miss it means we are out that money so it’s a punishment for us. They are 9, 8, 6, and 4 so don’t really have enough money to cover it if they miss. Also, for team activities not being at practice is letting down the team and I believe going back on a commitment, but I also believe that the fact that they get …

This call covers: My husband is okay with me introducing the TSG skills into the family, but he’s not so keen on actually changing the tone and environment of our home. How can I help him get on board? Our four-year-old is bright and enthusiastic, but has a hitting problem with the family and sometimes even with guests. What do I do? I divorced and remarried into a family that now totals almost 17 children. They’re great for the most part, but some of the teens have terrible attitude problems. How do I teach one of them humility? Our aged 11 daughter becomes extremely rebellious whenever we try to enforce rules. How do we fix that? I get scared of correcting some behaviors. How do I help myself not be afraid?

This call covers: Summer tip! Helping family relationships stay strong with friends in the picture more. My 8-year-old daughter has a friend who will invite her to play, then leave her and go play with other people without warning. Ideas? 13-year-old son will NOT talk about the topic of changing schools. He immediately gets angry and refuses to discuss it. What do I do? (This call had some technical difficulties on the second question. We apologize. Please read the notes for more on it.)
