Love Languages

Topics: This week, we're talking about The Five Love Languages, a book by Gary Chapman that many couples (at least in the US) read together at the beginning of their marriage. We're all unique, and the way we express and seek love is unique, too. If you recognize that your partner expresses love differently than you do, you'll be better equipped to love them the way they need to be loved. And the great thing is, this applies to every kind of relationship, not just marriage.

Helicopter Parenting

Topics: Brandon and Jesse catch up on what's new with their kids this week: ear infections, bursting ear drums and major walking improvements. Then we dig into this week's topic: helicopter parenting, and judgment of parenting in general. It's difficult to tell where to draw the line between wanting what's best for your kid, and giving them room to grow on their own. Plus, we're all a little too quick to judge other parents' style based on our own. Brandon and Jesse talk about a recent story from PBS Newshour and explore ways that parents, schools and communities are encouraging kids to develop independence and confidence.

Getting the Hang of It

Topics: Brandon and Jesse catch up on what's new with their kids this week: parenting studies, family time, and baby steps. Then we dig into this week's topic: getting the hang of this parenting thing. We all fall in the trap of feeling insecure or guilty about our parenting skills (or lack thereof) from time to time. Sometimes it's as small as changing a diaper wrong, and sometimes it's as big as wondering if you should have jumped into fatherhood at all. This week we try to break down some of those common doubts and fears.

Socializing

Topics: Brandon and Jesse catch up on what's new with their kids this week: adjusting cribs, bathtub injuries, and growing molars. Then we dig into this week's topic: socializing. Kids learn to interact with their fellow humans at different rates and in different ways. We talk about how our kids do with other babies, strangers, and even grown-up family members. Then we talk about a story from Wired Magazine about how exposure to digital screens may not be as bad for your kid's health and development as you might think.

Milestones

Topics: Brandon and Jesse catch up on what's new with their kids this week: Noah's ear infection saga and chomping daycare pals. Then we dig into this week's topic: milestones. Every kid grows at their own rate, but it's easy to play the comparison game and wonder if your child is falling behind. We talk about our experiences, and why it's important to keep perspective. Then, Jesse brings up a study that shows how important it is to let your kid get physical.

Gregory Carter now lies with his mother, grandparents, three siblings and other relatives at Sunset Memorial Gardens. “If you die you’re just lost until somebody thinks about you again,” Anthony Owens told the Sun-Sentinel. “So his spirit is probably all around us right now. It’s a good thing. He’s doing good.”
