In this podcast episode, I sat down with my 19-year-old son for the first time in 3 years to update you on all the massive changes, challenges, secrets, and lessons learned in our family during the Covid craziness.
In this podcast episode, we share:
👣 What it’s like to live together now that both boys are adults and why they haven’t moved out.
👣 How my children were raised to be gentlemen and how their life is totally different from others.
👣 The benefits and the pain of growing up as a sibling to a child that’s recovering from autism.
👣Coronavirus and how we’ve been handling it. From week 1 to now.
👣 The V and our opinion about it. Are my children getting it?
👣 What it feels like to live a life that’s very different from the mainstream.
👣 Living life without dairy, gluten, and alcohol as a teenager.
👣 Addictions and what happens when we eat anything with dairy in it.
👣 How Melvin stops my stress and obsession over the world situation and his advice for other mothers worries him.
👣 What motivates Melvin to stay away from sugar, dairy, alcohol, and gluten?
👣 Why Melvin chose to give up on alcohol for life when he was 18.
👣 Melvin’s rebel phase and how we survived it.
👣 Why he’d rather stay in and stay in bed in the evening than go out and staying up late.
👣 Our opinion re: childhood and adult drinking in Denmark and in England.
👣 Why the eating/drinking culture in a family is important and why it’s important not to drink in front of children.
👣 Is Melvin going to allow his children to drink and do what they want?
👣 Dopamine addiction. Gaming and how to deal with children being excluded from the friend-groups if they are not allowed to play Fortnite/Minecraft?
👣 What it was like for Melvin to grow up without gaming and why the gamers who are excluding your child are NOT friends at all anyway.
👣 Why emotionally available, stable friendships aren’t found in friend groups where gaming is the main interest.
👣 Why the argument: “if you don’t allow your child to play games, your child will be lonely” isn’t sitting well with Melvin.
👣 Addiction and how to avoid teenage addiction/adult addiction by having clear boundaries in your child’s childhood.
👣 Why children should not make important decisions about food, gaming, and rules. And why Melvin suggests that you have the courage to NOT be your child’s friend.
👣 Why you should NOT give your child what it WANT’S BECAUSE YOU NEED TO PREPARE YOUR CHILD FOR LIFE and adversity.
👣 Pronouns? Why we don’t use them. Our controversial opinion on the woke generation and non-problems.

👣 The damaging effect of having 2 full-time working parents and regrets.
