Finally we give our "Siskel and Ebert" review of the movie "Instant Family".
 
We got more so we answered more! Another Listener questions episode.....
 
Well you KNOW we love getting questions from our listeners! Today we answer yours...
 
Last week WL blindsided HK with a topic and this week HK turns the tables! Interview style, HK gets to know more about WL and her mysterious past...
 
Ladies and Gentlemen.... After seeing MANY posts this week from parents struggling with their 12,13 and 14 year olds, WL has come up with a NOBEL PRIZE WORTHY theory on why this age is tough. Complete with mathmatical (momatical?) models and numbers. You're Welcome. (Trademark WL, 2019 all rights reserved.....)…
 
Back to actual topics after a chaotic episode and a weekend off. (sorry!) Today we are getting REAL talking about what works for kids and teens when it comes to parenting talks/rants/lectures and what doesn't. We discuss some of our best and worst moments in an attempt to figure out the best way to overcome conflicts and tackle issues.…
 
Hmmm.... so the kids really wanted to do an episode all together. But they weren't super set on a specific topic. This one is little loose and rambling but sometime you have to let the kiddos run with an idea, am I right? Anyway, consider this maybe kind of a palate cleanser... it might be more for their benefit than ours!…
 
Sometimes in this process there's the spouse or partner that has the initial idea to look into foster/adoption and if that person is really lucky their partner/spouse is supportive and on board. What's it like to be that supportive partner? What are some of the concerns and thoughts that Dad has had on this journey? Also this week we talk about ...…
 
Christmas can be tough for everyone as we try to get through the season with love ones who are absent from our lives, but there is the potential for the added elements of complication and trauma in the foster and adoptive world. We share YOUR stories, current issues and solutions as we discuss this topic with Grammy!…
 
How do Grandparents factor in to all of this and how do they feel? Especially since we as foster/adoptive parents are asking them to take on something that was our choice and not theirs... Grammy is here this week and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have her on the show to share her perspective. We also need your foster/adopt Christmas s ...…
 
We are tackling an unfortunate and dark topic today... what do WE as the larger foster/adoption community do about toxic foster families. They ARE out there, and in a system that is underfunded and overworked, they are largely ignored. We talk about our own growing awareness of this issue, and are asking for solutions from YOU dear listener! Ho ...…
 
We had a tough week this week. We discuss our take-aways and talk about something that's being discussed a lot right now: kiddos that think they would be better off somewhere else because their parents are >gasp< ACTIVELY PARENTING. This is a tough one.... how do we assure them they're in the right place, that it IS hard, that we love them unco ...…
 
In this episode brainstormed by HK, we talk about "Dangerous Decisions" with finances, in school, and on-line. We also answer a listener question.
 
This week a listener question sparked this topic. We should EXPECT foster kids to come into our homes with gaps in their learning/habits/behavior, yet it can still be super-frustrating for parents and kiddos to fill in those gaps. We talk about gaps that we have tackled this first year and how important it is to stop and celebrate progress beca ...…
 
Why do older kiddos in the system sometimes feel that they need to lie and leave a smokescreen of their activities even when things are all above board? Today we brainstorm this challenge and our thoughts about why this happens and what parents can do about it. Plus... listener questions!
 
Today we discuss a book that I read a long time ago that I had HK take a look at this week. The book is called "A framework for Understanding Poverty" by Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D. The book talks about the very different rules that belong to different classes and the blind-sides that might occur when people shift from one setting to another. The book ...…

How do we help our foster/adopt kiddos create a cultural heritage when all they understand of their culture is "not white"? We are making it up as we go on this one for sure but we share our thoughts and strategies.
 
Fostering and Adopting older kiddos means that sometimes we have to parent "out of phase" which almost always creates mayhem and bad feelings. We brainstorm this and talk about strategies that can make it feel less awful for both kiddos and parents when we have to go back and fill in those parenting gaps.…
 
What do adoptive families need from friends and families? This week we swap experiences with a key part of our families support system and talk all about ways to support families going through fostering and adoption.
