Insights Into Teens: Episode 92 “Holiday Special 2020”

This week’s episode is all about the holidays. First we’ll talk about holiday traditions that we do as a family and ones that we’ve done over the years. Then we’ll have some fun with a little holiday trivia and learn some things about the holidays we didn’t know before. And finally we’ll finish up with another fun segment of “Would you rather…Holiday Edition”. We figured we’d wrap up another great year of podcasting with some fun as we take a few weeks off for the holidays. We’ll be back broadcasting live again after the first of the year.

Have a safe and happy holiday to all our viewers, listeners and fans.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 90 “Pumpkin Spices Up The Family”

This week is a cute kitten episode. We showcase the newest addition to our family, our little kitten Pumpkin. We’ll discuss the circumstances of why we decided to expand our family after feeling the loss of one of our beloved elder cats. We’ll talk about where we found pumpkin, who we were lucky enough to get her from and the details of the adoption process.

The second half of the show is dedicated to Pumpkin herself. The diva of a kitten makes an early and unexpected appearance early on in the show but is kind enough to come back to close out the show with us. We’ll talk about some of the fun little things we’ve discovered about her so far, explore her interesting personality, detail how she’s gotten along with the rest of the family and share some fun stories we’ve got from her in just the last couple of weeks.

Stick around until the end of the show with a special bonus montage of some of our favorite photo’s that we’ve snapped of the cute little kitten, including her holiday outfit!

Insights Into Teens: Episode 87 “Would You Rather”

We decided to change things up a bit for our Halloween episode and have some fun. We decorated the studio set, threw on our costumes and decided to play a game of “Would You Rather”.

In this episode we ask Madison a serious of questions on topics such as Technology, Pop Culture, Family, School, Food and Fantasy. We give Madison two choices and she needs to pick which one she would rather go with. It’s a fun and interesting little game of personality questions that we play at home from time to time. This time we’re asking the questions on the podcast and getting the answers on the fly.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 81 “Getting To Know You Part 3”

In this third “Getting to Know You” episode we learn more about Madison through a series of questions, some of which we’ve never asked before and others are a status check on what’s changed since our last “Getting to Know You” podcast.

This session was inspired by some back to school questions Madison was answering this week. Her answers as with everything in the world today are colored by the current state of the COVID-19 crisis.

Surprising, despite the bleak outlook on the world today Madison is able to maintain a positive perspective on things. We asked a series of questions from habits and hobbies to family and friends and delve deeper into her personality. We learn a few things that even as her dad I wasn’t aware of. It was an eye opening and fun podcast this week. There are some great questions in this episode that I encourage other parents to engage their kids with, you might be pleasantly surprised at the answers you get.

We’ll talk about some of the common causes of burn out. We will also look at ways to cope with burn out and how to recover from it while also understanding that burn out and stress, while they may be linked are two different and distinct problems to deal with.
