This week we are talking about what it means to be financially responsible, how to save money and how to start thinking about money management even in your teens. We’re joined by Dan Fooks of TheFinancialFix.co who started his financial adventures at age sixteen and has seen great success in growing his money.
Dan gives us some hints, tricks and advice on how to make our money work for us. From looking at multiple streams of income to how to wisely invest your money safely we learn how even with a small savings from an allowance or doing chores can get you started with your own portfolio with the help of your parents. It’s never too you to start saving money, and it’s certainly never too young to have your money start working for you.
This week’s episode is inspired by our delay in recording due to a few illnesses in the house. Neither Madison nor dad were feeling well for our regular Friday show so we had to postpone that show and decided to do a podcast on the subject off schedule on Sunday.
We take a look at some of the common injuries and illnesses that teens face. Then we talk about some of the injuries and health issues that Madison has endured in her thirteen years and how she’s coped with them. From your typical bumps and bruises to the obscure and scary illness of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) we talk about how we got through some of these common and not so common issues.
In our monumental 50th episode Madison interviews her brother Sam, Co-host of Insights Into Tomorrow on the network. With a curated set of general and personal questions Madison delves deeper into the personality and history of her older brother in an attempt to satisfy her desire to get to know him better. It’s a touching interaction between brother and sister who were once very close but who time and circumstance has pulled apart. It’s an excellent example of how to rekindle a friendship or relationship with someone you may have grown distant from and is an enjoyable discussion to witness.
What is defiant behavior? Does your teen exhibit symptoms of it? Is there a medical reason for it? We attempt to answer these questions in this weeks episode of the show. We’ll also talk about the suspect causes of this type of behavior, the typical risk factors associated with defiant behavior and strategies for dealing with defiant teens and Oppositional Defiant Disorder or ODD.
This week we take a bit of a detour from our regularly scheduled program and talk about the rough week that Maddie had. Encountering some of the typical issues that teens face like school stress, social anxiety, sleep issues, not feeling too well and a few other things we decided it was best to turn this into a bit of a rant and therapy session for Madison.
This was a multi-purpose episode this week. Not only were we trying to console Madison and help her cope with some of the issues that came up. Since what she was encountering was pretty typical of most teens, we thought our audience might benefit from hearing a first hand account of these challenges and possible ways to cope with them to get through weeks that just never seem to end.
Fresh off a two week holiday break your hosts are back discussing our various adventures while away from the studio. We talk about how to keep a teenager occupied on an eleven plus hour drive. What it’s like to stay at four different Disney Vacation Club resorts and some of the activities available. Then we’ll give you a detailed look at the new Galaxy’s Edge world of Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu recently opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park and some of the cool things we were able to do there.
