    Different Homes. Different Rules.

    Different Homes. Different Rules.

    We were asked by a parent: Our friends don't monitor screens like we do. Should I let my kids go to their house? We share how to handle these types of difficult conversations and why it's important.

    What I wish someone would've told me

    As our kids are dreaming big about playing in the NFL or being a famous singer, how do we handle that? We don't want to squelch their dreams, but we also want to be real with them. We share what that looks like in our homes and why we believe that parents are called to be more than just cheerleaders for their kids.

    A parent recently reached out about the iPod Touch. Their question launched a good conversation into how kids connect online at different ages (devices they're using) and where they're meeting up in apps.

We share 3 steps to hone in on, but spend most of the show sharing real life examples of situations we've faced and for each one,  should we "Get involved - or not?"

nextTalk mom ,

NextTalk

I listen to nextTalk podcasts every week. They are so helpful and give me things to think about and start conversations about with my family. I love how nextTalk has helped our family communicate in a more open and honest manner. It’s been life changing!

Very helpful

I started listening NextTalk about a year ago, I recommend it to my friends and family when they start taking about topics related with their kids like
Bullying, sex, pornography, teenagers, the only child, family, traditions etc, etc. Every single topic has been helpful for me. I’m so blessed listening nextTalk. God bless you and keep helping families with your podcasts. 🙏🏼😊
