    Book Study - Dressmaker of Khair Khana

    This book by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon is an inspiring and challenging true story. We discuss oppression and privilege quite a bit. These kinds of conversations show differences in our beliefs and open space for healthy discussion. That's pretty difficult for mother-daughter sometimes. We don't get everything right here. How do you feel about each of our perspectives? What did we get wrong? Where are we at least on the right track? Honestly we'd love to hear from you. hugandahighfivepodcast@gmail.com

    Racial Justice Conversation

    It is up to the privileged in our society to dismantle white privilege and systemic racism. So, this is one of the many ways we are taking action. Are we perfect? Absolutely not. We will fumble, you may feel uncomfortable, you may have critiques for us. This is not a how-to. It is a humble, questioning conversation.

    Giving and Receiving FEEDBACK!

    Giving and Receiving FEEDBACK!

    Did I ask for that?…Do I want your opinion?…or…Do I want to spout out my opinion in the guise of “feedback.” Giving and receiving feedback is a delicate communication skill to cultivate between parents and their children who are transitioning to adults. Ingrid and Vicki talk about when and how feedback is easier to give and receive. This podcast was recorded prior to the riots that resulted from the death of George Floyd. Our next podcast addresses this topic in more detail. We left this FEEDBACK podcast in because of the value of honing this skill.https://biglifejournal.com/pages/freebies

(that was healthy for me, and that was hard to do)." -VickiThis is the most raw and vulnerable we've been to date. Counseling has been instrumental in our relationship. Quite honestly, it is a big part of the reason we are close enough for this podcast to even exist. What REALLY happens when Daughter begins to differentiate from Mom - and doesn't do it kindly. We can tell you from experience...

    Meaning vs Significance

    Meaning vs Significance

    What does “home” mean to you? What does “home” mean to me? When you say it, what significance do I place on what you say? Ingrid and Vicki discuss the difference between meaning and significance. How do words change in significance to the recipient and what meaning does the sender place on the words over time. Misunderstandings often have to do with the difference between meaning and significance. Come along for our ride considering meaning and significance.
