    Contact: Little Green Men and Societal Regression

    Contact: Little Green Men and Societal Regression

    Contact is a movie that asks big questions. This week Avrum and Ellie are using it to explore how anxious societies deal with uncertainty, and how that plays out in families, and how our experience with our own parents influences our present relationships.

    The Outsiders: Family Loss, Surrogate Care and the Need for Support

    The Outsiders: Family Loss, Surrogate Care and the Need for Support

    Ep 29: The Outsiders was a Coppola film based on the book by S.E. Hinton and stacked with a breakout cast. The story of PonyBoy, Soda Pop and Darry is a class warfare drama that looks into sensitive characters and their losses. In this film Avrum and Ellie explore trauma and parenting, what happens when there are surrogate caregivers, and how families can easily buckle under pressure when they don’t have enough support or care.

    Edward Scissorhands: High Expectations, Deflecting Responsibility and Making Mistakes

    Edward Scissorhands: High Expectations, Deflecting Responsibility and Making Mistakes

    Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands is a surreal adventure and love story that Avrum and Ellie use as a springboard for conversations this week about what to do when parents make mistakes, high expectations and saviour complexes and how we tend to look for ways to deflect responsibility in relationships when we don’t know what to do.

    Heathers: Seen, Heard, Understood

    Heathers: Seen, Heard, Understood

    S1 Ep 27: Heathers… Do we really need to say more? Dark, sassy and a brutal look at class and caste warfare in high school. In this episode we are digging into how kids need to be seen, heard and understood, but we can’t do that as parents if we are freaking out, and asking the question what does it mean to be in control of ourselves and the difference between being able and not being able to be in choice.

Also, this week we had some tech issues, so we leave you on a cliffhanger, but we want to know your answer to our question! Send us what you think at ellie@myjfi.com
