11:46 Jen doesn’t allow her sons to play Fortnite. They are the only ones in their class who don’t play. How do she stay connect to them. Furthermore- what’s going on with this world?
48:00 Lauren is challenged with setting boundaries with a brother who abuses himself with substances as well as mental health challenges. She usually plays the “fixer” role and needs to make a shift.
54:40 4th grade son is struggling to make friends. Is this about him, or is this about me?
12:26:59 From jennifer : I am so inspired by Jennifer’s fire! I’ve noticed with myself, when I start thinking about the huge picture I can get discouraged and give up. So as Todd said, what you do with your family Jennifer will make a big difference, so small steps can make a huge difference also
12:31:12 From jennifer : I was strict with screen time and now my kids say, even though they weren’t thrilled at the time, the will do the same with their children—it will reach out to a bigger circle
12:43:51 From Rose’s iPhone : I strongly agree with you Jennifer. I worry (for myself) that my language and fire about some of these fads can backfire. I remember when my son was into the Ninja Turtles. This made me crazy and I essentially outlawed them at my house. but it passed after a year and I inadvertently created disconnection versus connection (Mary Shores idea).
