Among Us
Last year there was a surge in the popularity of the game Among Us - 1000's of people jumped on to be funny little scientists running around there spaceship running various little tasks... all while trying to find out who among them didn't belong - the one who was trying to sabotage the mission. The one who was an imposter. I definitely played my fair share of the game, but always felt like I didn't get to play as the imposter nearly as much as I wanted to... yet in real life, far too often I feel like I'm playing the imposter. I'm sure that many of you can relate to feeling like the only reason you are where you are is that you tricked people into thinking that you belong. Maybe you think that you're not really qualified for your job, or maybe you got into a program that you're sure someone else would have been better qualified for, or maybe you feel like you're friends are just pretending to like you. This is called imposter syndrome and it is shockingly common - I say shockingly common because when you're feeling it, it's hard to imagine anyone else feeling quite like you do - and yet almost everyone feels imposter syndrome to some extent.

By acknowledging the feels and removing our beliefs about all or nothing success we can work through those feelings of being an imposter

Keeping Boys Safe Online (w Amy Lang)
Do you worry about keeping your boys safe online?  Thanks to the pandemic, we're all spending more time online. And unlike in years past, porn is now ubiquitous and easily accessible. Boys today don't even have to go looking for porn; it finds them. A simple, developmentally appropriate search for "sex" or "boobs" can lead to some pretty disturbing content in just a click or two, which means we have to talk to our boys about sex, likely at lot earlier than you may think. "All the research shows that parents are the most important influence when it comes to sexual decision-making," Amy says. "If we don't get in the door early, our impact is less. It's really important to establish yourself as their go-to person." Teaching your boys about sex early on will help you contextualize porn. And parental controls and internet filters can help you manage your son's internet access, decreasing the chances that he and his friends will access porn while at your home. Consider redirecting some of the energy you're currently expending worrying about your son's academic achievement. After all, "being in relationships and being sexual is fundamental to being human," Amy says. "I think it's way more important to be sexually savvy and to understand healthy relationships than to score a 9000 on the PSAT." In this episode, Jen, Janet & Amy discuss: Why you need to talk to your boys about sex a lot sooner than you think How boys accidently encounter porn Setting the stage to talk about sex Does talking to boys about porn encourage them to seek it out? Establishing family guidelines re internet usage The difference between parental controls and monitoring (and how to use each) How porn affects boys Preparing boys for porn exposure Helping boys resist peer pressure to look at porn Keeping boys safe online Links we mentioned (or should have) in this episode: Talk to Boys about Sex (w Amy Lang) - ON BOYS episode http://birdsandbeesandkids.com/  — Amy’s website The Birds & Bees Solution Center for Parents -- use coupon code ONBOYS to save 15% Just Say This! - Amy's podcast Birds + Bees + YOUR Kids: A Guide to Sharing Your Beliefs about Sexuality, Love and Relationships, by Amy Lang
