Yep, there are large problems in the world. And while we educate ourselves and our families on how to help with those problems (more on that in this episode), these pesky non-problem problems are still creeping up. People wrote in and asked things like: How often should I be practicing “bland face” for when my teenager tells me shocking things and How naked is TOO naked when pelotoning with friends?

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:
  • Emily enjoying her kid-free 2 weeks

  • various and assorted mask problems

  • how we’re approaching speaking about racial equality on social media

  • our thoughts on sending kids back to school this fall

  • helping anxious kids cope with COVID concerns

  • ways to enjoy your family on road trips

  • setting boundaries to find time to relax

  • using reflective questioning with teens that struggle with deception

  • practicing “bland face” in preparation for your kid’s teen years

  • giving your kids space to let their energy out

  • Rebecky’s new alter ego, Francesca

  • giving disrespectful kids the opportunity to try again (and again)
