I am going to give you a “report card” that we can give to our middle school & high school age children. The goal would be that we can see some areas we need to work harder on in our parenting. There would have to be at least a basic level of trust and openness in a home for a report card like this to be able to be given.
I would hope that in all areas of parenting my kids would feel that they could honestly tell me how I am doing as a parent in some of the following areas.
I would love to hear if you use this report card and how it goes in your family. If you have any thoughts or ideas on how to make it better let me know.

Today’s vlog is not just for parents. It is actually for any of us who use a smartphone. We need to find a way to interact better with our phones. I think we would all agree we use them too much and we could all use some strategies to decrease our time on them. So this is the first video in a series talking about how we can have a better relationship with our phones. Each session will be some simple thoughts that are easy to make. Small easy changes that over time will make your relationship with your phone well… better

I cannot believe that this is the 50th video I have made for parents. For this video I am doing something a little different. I want to get better at my channel and the videos I do for people. In this video, I show you the setup of how I do my videos. If you have any ideas of how to help me get uniquely better at what I do please let me know. If you have any future topics you want me to cover please just post them in the comments or send me a message.
I was at a talk the other day and a father came up to me and said “Do you want to know the most revolutionary thing about your talk today” I answered yes, yes I do. He paused and then said it was when I said that families should eat together as much as they can. He said that his family 3 teenagers NEVER eat together except on holidays. He said they put out like a Buffett style dinner. Everyone comes through grabs their food and then disperses all over the house and him and his wife watches TV while eating. So here is the most common sense video… eat dinner together as much as you can.
