At a time where I really should be using my time much more wisely, I instead ended up getting my notes wrong for this episode. What follows is a casual conversation with Jonathan and Julia from the Ranking the Beatles podcast. I guess this episode is about making the best of a mistake, and not throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Peace & love.…
 
When we believe our children are being difficult, we tend to use yelling to make them listen to us. But yelling can only go so far before it starts to form cracks in the relationship with our kids and leave them with emotional scars that might never go away. At some point, we need to ask ourselves: Is my child’s obedience worth losing their love an…

Traditionally, children are meant to obey their parents without question and any sign of defiance is met with punishment. We believe that our child’s behavior is a reflection of us as parents and that opens us up to judgment from others. No one wants to be labeled as a “bad parent” but just because something is accepted as the norm doesn’t always m…
 
The Monkees both were are were not "a weekly dose of A Hard Day's Night." This week, we look at the relationship between the two acts.

Parents try to prop themselves up as these invincible figures who aren’t affected by sadness or fear, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They have their own fair share of anxieties and trauma; and when all of that just builds up, it starts to leak into other aspects of their lives. When that happens, it’s good to have someone who's willin…

Parenting shouldn’t be synonymous with control, but for my guest, Iris Chen, this was her reality while growing up in an Asian-American household. Our childhood experiences can shape what kind of parents we’ll become to our kids; but as their parents, it is our role to guide and care for them while also respecting their own autonomy. This is the re…

Originally, this was part of the "Catch-Up" side series, where me and Kit O'Toole were going to cover Give My Regards to Broadstreet, both the film and the album.
