Asking over thirty questions we take a look at some of the things mommy remembers most fondly about Madison growing up. We take a look at what is still the funniest memory in the form a short home movie, we’ll look at what her favorite song was and some of her “firsts”. We’ll also get a chance to look at our aspiring artists early hand at visual arts.
This week we talk about how to cope with grief and loss. Whether it’s the death of a friend or family member, a beloved pet or the loss of a relationship everyone experiences various stages of grief. We discuss these stages of grief, how they manifest themselves and how teens specifically are affected by grief and loss. We’ll also discuss ways to help those going through such a painful process to handle what can be an overwhelming amount of emotions.
We finish up our two part question and answer session with four new topics. This week we discuss relationships, the future, family and personal values. We gain new insights into the complicated personality that is our co-host and we get what I consider to be the single best answer to the age old question “What is the meaning of life” that I’ve ever heard. It’s a heart warming, educational and entertaining look into the mind of today’s youth.
Summer is almost here and the excitement of school letting out and summary activities is all the buzz.

This week we explore the wonders, benefits and rewards of the furry, feathered and scaled members of the family folks refer to as our pets.
