It’s great relationship-building time with their dad.

Lights, Camera, Action… with Energy!

Many years ago I co-directed a youth theater production of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” On our last day of performances, we had a matinee and an evening performance. The matinee performance started under lots of stress. We were missing our stage hand, our sound person and two actresses, and everyone was stressed. The only thing we had time to do was say a prayer. We usually took time getting into character and doing energy-building exercises before a performance, but we didn’t have time that day. The play had to go on.

This call covers:

  • Sometimes people ask my opinion about parenting. Most of the time they just want a “quick fix.” What can I tell them?
  • “Work is the antidote for a sick character.” What if all you do is work? Then, isplaythe antidote?
  • Son is 13 and in puberty, but he shows no empathy for others around him. How can that be fixed?
  • 4-year-old daughter is picky about clothes and won’t wear anything she doesn’t like. This gets expensive and frustrating. What to do?
  • I have a 16-month-old granddaughter who loves to get into things. She doesn’t like no answers. How can I help her accept no answers at such a young age?
