Dating Differently
Dating is a sticky subject for solo parents-not only has the dating world changed since we became single parents, but we have changed. We have a lot more to consider in dating relationships. What got us here isn't going to get us where we want to be. We are all in varying stages of solo parenting, so our approaches to dating may be different. However, there are some ways we can all be wiser when we decide to bring dating into our lives. Today, 2 single dads and 2 single moms discuss Dating Differently.

All Things New - Parenting with Presence - Dan Siegel

 All Things New - Parenting with Presence - Dan Siegel
As single parents, one thing we all have in common is that we're juggling so many balls in the air...all of the time. Paying bills, keeping a job, cooking, cleaning, being a taxi driver, and being a good parent can keep our minds spinning, trying to forecast the next step, the next responsibility, or the next shoe to drop. 

So often on this podcast, we talk about one of the greatest things we can give our kids is our presence, so as we move into this new year and look at our parenting, how can we move towards being more fully present with our kids? What are some practical things we can do, and are there simple approaches we can take to be more engaged with our kids... beyond just the tactical, keeping them healthy, fed, and clothed.

This week we have a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founder of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA, Dr. Dan Siegel with us to talk about All Things New: Parenting with Presence.

All Things New - Stop Overreacting

 All Things New - Stop Overreacting
Let's face it, every one of us... And we mean every. single. one. of us struggles with overreacting. Not everybody sees it and often our kids get the short end of the stick with our overreaction. We can fly off the handle with family members, driving, work, this list is extensive. So many of us walk around with our fingers on the trigger of overreaction, and the smallest things cause us to react contrary to what we know is right... or even what we have planned. And frankly, with so much of the burden on us... raising our kids, and keeping our family safe and marginally happy, it's no wonder that our emotions are close to the surface. The double whammy of this is it once we do overreact, we feel awful and guilty, and that turns into shame and can create its own spiral, which prompts even more overreaction from time to time. 

So as we start this new year and we look for things that we can do differently. How do we address our overreactions and move into a more balanced and stable response to the things happening around us?

All Things New - Relationships

All Things New - Relationships
It's so true that after becoming a Solo Parent, the dynamics of our friendships and relationships, as well as any romantic connection, can seem to evaporate. In this new year, as we take inventory of the things in our past and we look toward the future, we know how important relationships are, especially in a season that can be so lonely. But where do we meet people? Where do we start? For some of us, we have felt relational rejection, and our trust has been betrayed or, at the very least, damaged. Relationships can feel so awkward, and frankly, it's hard to think of having the energy or the courage to put ourselves out there again. Yet, we all know that we need relationships more than ever, so as we look at this new year and the idea of all things new, how do we sort through relationships both old and new... both friendships and maybe even romantic... realizing we are in different place than we use to be.

Reviews

Best way to start my week!

I love this podcast and this ministry. My favorite part is waiting to hear what outrageous example Robert Beeson uses as a reason to bring up the show notes.

First episode enough for me

It's sure hard to be a single father of two where my kids mom is the one who doesn't want her kids. I put this podcast on hoping to get tips and tricks and maybe some understanding. But instead I hear how the mom is always the hero and has the special relationship with her child and that the dad doesn't need to see his child because it would mess up the kids life having two rooms and two homes. What a biased messed up view to put out in the world. I tell my kids that they can see their mom whenever they like and to love both the parents. I would warn any single parent to not listen to this podcast
