A few weird stars lined up and had us talking about stalkers. We have watched a few shows recently where people are stalked. Some harmless and others more serious deadly situations. I really just like having these loose conversations about hard topics just to see where her head is at. We are laughing but we definitely know that stalking is a serious matter.

This week we are talking about parents being over the top in sports. Lebron James is under fire a little bit for getting to hyped and involved in his sons AAU basketball games. I see both sides of it and a lot of parents could do worse things then what LBJ is doing! At the end of the day he should be celebrated for loving his kids!

Light talk about Avengers End Game with SPOILERS. We also talk about depression lightly. Later on we will dive deep into it. But sometimes it’s important to dip your toe in the water with important topics. I use movies to talk about all kinds of topics and Thor was all Leiyah could think about walking out of EndGame. Leiyah is currently having a hard time with something we are aware of it and the cause behind it. This sadness is not depression but its also something I keep an eye on.

How do you deal with sadness or depression?

I took Leiyah on a road trip to visit some friends we haven’t seen in a while! We had a great drive up and back together. Spending time with good people and some outdoor activities is always a good thing! We also talk about go bags and survival. Be warned Leiyah is a SAVAGE!

Talking to the kid about her having a bad day at a wrestling match. We talk about that moment and how I/we handled it. Some tough love for sure.

Making sure we never get to low and bounce back from mistakes.

Talking about punishment I received as a child and what Leiyah currently goes thru as far as punishment. I learned a lot from how I was punished as a child. Leiyah learned the same lessons much faster than I did. I have no issue with spanking children. Of course there is a limit and line that shouldn’t be crossed. Lucky for me.. I only had to do it one time with my child.
