Would you let your teenager get a tattoo? What are some of your rational or irrational fears? You know the drill by now... We start on one topic and 20 minutes later we can’t remember how the conversation started. This week is no exception!

Being a parent can be exhausting. Who's kidding who, simply being an adult is exhausting but no matter how many times we tell our kids to just enjoy being a kid, they want to grow up so fast. Paraphrasing the late George Bernard Shaw "Youth is wasted on the young"... le sigh. Also, a big shout out to all moms or those who have the role of "mom" tom…
 
Setting boundaries shouldn't be a negative aspect to life. We want to teach our kids that vocalizing your expectations in a relationship, whether it be romantic, plutonic or with colleagues to work, sets the foundation of how you expect to be treated and how you wish to treat others. Also, this week's PSA to all parents is "Stop being so hard on yo…
 
Would you let your kids try alcohol at home? What about purchasing alcohol for them? This week Katie G and Mark Adam discuss their thoughts on this topic and also share some of their own experiences when they were teenagers and how they made some questionable decisions we hope our own kids will not make. There are just some things you don't want yo…
 
Why is it that our kids are physically unable to put things back where they belong or, if they do, its empty (or almost empty)? Yes, we would love to have to fill the Brita container before being able to get a glass of water and we didn't really want that granola bar anyway, thank you. Also, Happy Easter weekend!Top Tweets: @MikeMitchNH, @XplodingU…

Remember the days when you would leave your house as a kid and 95% of the time your parents didn't know where you were or who you were with and the only stipulation was coming home when the lights came on? Now we do everything but a full background check on who our kids are with. Ah, how times have changed. Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/parantin…
 
The family Wordle competition has begun and the battle between text/email and phone calls is underway. Katie G and Mark Adam reminisce about the good 'ol days when our parents would drag us to boring "grown up" parties and how we now do the same to our children - "Just 10 more minutes, kids!"

Mark Adam and Katie G have returned after a long hiatus! It only took them 14 months to get it (somewhat) together and finally record a new episode - but they're back.
