Am I a Terrible Parent: Video Games + Screen Time

We introduce a new format called "Am I a Terrible Parent?" where one of them asks if something they do with their kids makes them terrible parents. On this week's show Dan shares his policy of sequestering his children in their rooms once they've reached their screen time quota. This leads to a comparison of our children's obsession with screens, utilizing video games as a motivational tool, and the challenges of a creating a gaming free home in 2019.

Upside Down Leadership with Chris Cirullo

We all know we are supposed to lead our kids, but what does "leadership" actually mean? With so many different leadership types and methods displayed in society and culture, it's crucial we distinguish between the world's version of leadership and God's.

To help us wade through this topic, Justin hangs out with Chris Cirullo of Man on Mission podcast to try and differentiate between cultural leadership vs. kingdom leadership and how that affects the approach we take with our kids.

God is Not a Helicopter Parent + School Shootings

The guys follow up on their conversation about Violence by asking how much God "helicopters" vs. allows us to encounter difficult/traumatizing experiences in life.

Violent Content Will Not Ruin Your Kids

For as long as violent media has existed, parents have wondered: is it OK to let my kids see/hear/read/watch this? Will it cause them to be violent? Will it traumatize them in some way? Will they think violence is normal/good/appropriate behavior?

These are critical questions to answer that, like most questions, have no universal answer for every family or every child. Listen in as we talk through how our families think about violence, we hope it sparks intentional thoughts and conversations about what's best for yours.

Is Parenting Hard? A Debate with Risen Motherhood (Ep 31)

Back this week with the fun part of our conversation with Laura and Emily from Risen Motherhood (the podcast AND the new book). They begin every episode with the statement "Motherhood is hard," so we thought we'd get them to dig deeper into what that really means. Is parenting actually hard, or do we make it hard? A friendly debate ensues and go figure, when you listen to people who think differently than you, sometimes you learn things.

Gospel Hope for Fun Parenting with Risen Motherhood (Ep 30)

We "know" the gospel means salvation in the eternal sense, but what does it do for us in the meantime?For such an important question we had to bring in the heavy hitters Laura and Emily from Risen Motherhood to help us sort through all the implications the Good News has for us as parents. Fortunately for us they wrote an entire book on the topic so they've got a lot of insight.

The deeper our understanding of the gospel goes the more we realize how all encompassing this "good news" actually is. From the biggest problems to the smallest, the answer always lies in the work of Jesus.

Navigating Alcohol with Children (Ep 29)

Beer, wine, and spirits. To some they are the start of a great night, to others they are a sure fire sign of darkness and moral decline. It gets even trickier when you throw children and legal drinking ages into the mix...

What does God think about alcohol? Is it a good idea for kids to be around it? How do we define drunkenness? What ages is it OK for kids to start drinking? We tackle these questions and more while, as always, our goal isn't to tell you what the "right" answers are, but rather spark thoughts and conversations to help you process through it for you and your family.
