Important conversations and encouraging words to help you make every day a great one. Movie Quotes (00:00) Families who enjoy movies usually have a collection of favorite movie quotes that make their way into everyday conversation. Show producer Rod Gustafson and Lisa share some of their family favorites. And you can do likewise here. The Mom Uniform (15:27) Lisa and Kacy Faulconer discuss the importance of a mom uniform: an outfit you don’t have to think about so you have one less decision to make. 80’s Pop Culture (33:25) Many parents of GenX kids excitedly show their kids a favorite movie or tv show, something they watched and loved at their age, only to become horrified as they re-watch it with them through new eyes—parental eyes—and discover it’s much dodgier than they remember. Has media changed, or have they changed, or is it both? Here to discuss 80’s pop culture is pop culture expert, Kacy Faulconer. Kitchen Table Science (50:04) In our homes we talk about all sorts of subjects around the kitchen table each night with our families, so why not talk about stars, animals, or electricity? Talking about these things is what we call “kitchen table science,” little ways we can bring science and other STEM activities and discussions into our family’s everyday lives. Dr. Scott Bergeson is a professor in the BYU Physics department and is here today to talk to us a little bit about bringing science into our homes. \#GenerationLonely (1:06:28) Posting online has become so commonplace that a lot of us don’t really think before we click the button. Unfortunately, this can lead us to revealing personal information about ourselves we don’t mean to, sharing negativity online, and sometimes causing more problems than we fix, since our actions can’t be taken back. Dr. Suzanne Degges-White, a professor at Northern Illinois University, joins us to discuss how we should change the way we interact with technology and the best ways to protect ourselves online and in person. Dr. Degges-White is the author of Toxic Friendships: Knowing the Rules and Dealing with the Friends Who Break Them Every Day. You can read her original article here. Parenting Advice (1:24:36) Lisa runs the gamut of all the advice she’s received as a parent: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
