For a host of reasons, the holidays can be rough on our schedule, our health, and particularly our relationships. Wouldn’t it be nice to make the upcoming holiday season a little smoother? In today’s podcast we tackle a few ways to let out the pressure! 

Talk about this:
What are our priorities? Do our traditions serve our priorities or do our priorities serve the tradition?

What expectations am I carrying? What exactly am I expecting of others?

How can I celebrate others?

Is this ___________ (whatever I’m about to consume) a wise decision?

Bonus question for others: “Tell me about why you believe what you do." (then listen!)

Have you ever considered how your fellow family members describe your family? Have you ever asked them what they think about when they think about each other? If you’ve ever told a classic family story (e.g., the time the car died, or the dog was lost) chances are you noticed how different the narrative is from one person to the next. In fact, for stories we don’t say out loud the narratives can vary even more wildly – and sometimes not in the best way. In today’s podcast we discuss how those stories can shape our family life and what to do if they go negative.

How can you build habits into your family that bring out the best narratives?

  3. PUSH kids out of their comfort zones or PROTECT my kids when they are uncomfortable.
  4. BE WALKED ON or BULL DOZE OVER my kids when they have different opinions or push back?
  5. MANIPULATE or BE MANIPULATED BY my family?
  6. STUFF my anger or EXPLODE when mad?
  7. BE TOO CONTROLLING or TOO DISENGAGED in addressing my kid's negative behavior?
  8. HELICOPTER or be UNINTERESTED / DISTANCED in my kid's school?
  9. TALK too much or SAY too little?

I AM MORE WORRIED ABOUT ...

  1. My kids being afraid of me OR not respecting me?

Have you ever considered how easy it is to find flaws in other people and how challenging it is to see our own faults? Even though this bias is natural, it’s not very helpful in a marriage.

The biggest flaw I bring in the marriage is _______

What words feel safe for my spouse to use around this flaw?

Do you know the most important part your kid’s education process? In this week’s podcast Billy & Joy discuss one guy’s opinion that the best education focuses on just two things. Check out the quote below and decide if you agree!

Seth Godin quote

“ Sooner or later parents have to take responsibility for putting their kids into a system that is indebting them and teaching them to be cogs in an economy that doesn’t want cogs anymore. Parents get to decide. I’m a huge fan of public school … But from 3 to 10 those kids are getting homeschooled, and they’re either getting homeschooled watching the Flintstones or they’re getting homeschooled in learning something useful. And I think we need to teach kids two things: one, how to lead, and two, how to solve interesting problems.

There are plenty of countries on earth where people are willing to be obedient and work harder for less money than us. So we cannot out-obedience the competition. Therefore we have to out lead or out solve the other people … who want whatever is scarce. The way you teach your kid to solve interesting problems is to give them interesting problems to solve. And then, don’t criticize them when they fail. Kids aren’t stupid. If they get in trouble every time they try to solve an interesting problem, they’ll just go back to getting an A by memorizing what’s in the textbook …

We don’t need to have them spend a lot of time getting good grades so they can get into a famous college, because famous colleges don’t work anymore. Famous colleges don’t work anymore. The point is, is there an entity that will have trouble living without you when you seek to earn a living? Because if there is, you’ll be able to make a living. If on the other hand you’re waiting in the placement office for someone to pick you, you will be persistently undervalued. “

Talk about this:

What are practical ways we can get our kids to practice leadership?

What are my tendencies that might undermine their leadership process?

What are interesting problem solving skills we can give our kids this week?

What are my tendencies that might undermine their problem-solving process?

Extra-marital affairs can be ruinous to marriage, family, and self-esteem and yet they are familiar parts of our storylines. Is it possible to stop them from happening in the first place?  In today’s episode Billy and Joy discuss factors that erode our relationship and what we should focus on to keep our marriage strong.

Talk about this:

- How much do we talk about our temptations as a couple? How much do we talk about what concerns us? How can we be better?

- In what areas might I/we be "eroding?"

- Is there any practice or mindset that might leave us more exposed for affairs?

Do you ever lose your cool?  Have you ever felt like you have one nerve left and everyone is standing on it?  If you’re like us, it’s easy to react to people and circumstances reflexively – to give full range to impatience, frustration, or anger.

In this summer replay episode Billy and Joy kick around the idea of responding rather than reacting to the things that bug us.

Take a listen and form some of your own opinions about their opinions!

Talk about this:

How often do I react to my kids versus respond to them?
What "Pause Phrases" can I use? (Practice them!)
What circumstances do I need to imagine in advance? Where do I struggle to "assume good intentions?"
