Is there a general guide to perform a "reality check". For example, when dealing with issues with family of origin: how to check your grievances/issues levels are appropriate. That you're not "flying off the handle".
I've got 2 things I have been thinking about recently. One was how you did a bit of an analysis recently on certain magical / witchcraft /wizardry movies and what their meanings are. Have you already done analysis on other popular childhood movies? If you did I'd be very interested in listening. If not, would you be willing to? I know you do some recent movie reviews but I was just curious since a lot of kids spend time trying to be like their favorite characters so it might be useful philosophically.
My other question is, with Christmas just a few days away I've been seeing a whole lot of "elf on the shelf" stuff on social media. I've never been into it and it honestly creeps me out, but what is the philosophy around it? And is it actually creepy or am I misinterpreting it?
Thank you as always for providing so much insight. And merry Christmas!! 🎄🥂
Why do you think it is so common for grandparents to treat their grandkids so well when they didn’t do the same with respect to their own kids? I notice this a lot in public.
Would you mind sharing some insight into your decision-making process when you ultimately decided to become a stay-at-home father? What were some frequent challenges you faced in that role, any unexpected or unusual ones?
