Supporting Kid’s Dreams (0:00:00) We’ve all heard the fantastic dreams about what kids want to be when they grow up –the most famous rockstar of all time, the first girl to live on Pluto, even president of the entire universe, to name a few examples. And while we laugh at some of these dreams as being a little unrealistic, we also don’t want to restrict their capabilities and creativity. If your kid wants to be an Olympic gold medalist, what’s really to stop them? So, taking all of this into account, how can we be realistic about supporting our child’s dreams, while also making sure to not limit their full potential? Today we are joined by Katie Hurley, a child and adolescent psychotherapist, here with us to discuss how to healthily support your child’s dreams. Lisa's Adventure Club Grand Prize Giveaway (0:20:41) Lisa and Richie announce the winner of the Adventure Club Grand Prize and chat with her about her plans. Teaching Teens about the Dangers of Driving (0:24:31) Teaching your child to drive is more stressful than potty training, teaching them how to read, and letting them go on their first date. Car accidents are the leading cause of teenage death at 33 percent. Over 300,000 teenagers are involved in car accidents every year. So, how can you not worry?! Most states require at least 50 hours of driving experience before your child can get their driver’s license. So, how can you and your child survive those long hours with as little stress as possible? To help answer this question and more, we’ve invited Kirk Halliday, a father of five and primary driving instructor to 4 of his children over the past 10 years. Inappropriate Questions (0:36:04) We’ve all before been on the receiving end of inappropriate questions. Questions like “How is a great girl (or guy) like you still single?” or “What are you making at your job?” Questions like these make us feel uncomfortable and leave us unsure as to how to answer or react. But what makes people ask questions that are obviously intrusive and unwelcome? And what’s the best way to handle the situation when it inevitably arises? Here to talk about why we ask inappropriate questions and how to handle it if you've been asked is LCSW F. Diane Barth. World’s Largest Frying Pan (0:52:48) What is the most food you have ever made for a gathering? Well our next guest might have you beat. We are speaking with Leon Sikes, a former Tourism Director from Rose Hill, North Carolina, home of the World’s Largest Frying Pan where they can cook up to 365 chickens at a time in the 16 by 45 ft pan. We can’t wait to learn about this record-breaking frying pan and hear how it was built and what it is used for. Reinvent Your Career (1:09:56) The economy is changing, different industries are changing, and that means that available jobs are changing. If you’ve worked in the same industry forever, you might be a worried that you’re never going to be able to go back to what you’re used to. But maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe that means it’s time for a fresh start, time to reinvent your career. Louie Gravance is a Business and Workplace Consultant who spent twenty-five years working at The Walt Disney Company. We’re excited to pick his creative brain on this trying topic today. Weekend Review (1:27:55) Lisa and Richie talk about what there is to do this weekend, from the newest shows coming to streaming services to the New York Times Bestseller list.
