Parenting is hard. So what do we do with that reality? I’m definitely not going to give you 5 tips to easy parenting. It's going to be hard. So what do we do with that emotionally? It's easy to get angry about it, or bitter or resentful. It's easy to want to numb on great wines and Netflix. It's easy to fantasize about escaping the hard and going to a remote tropical island. It’s easy to get discouraged and frustrated. It's easy to feel trapped and cornered, and swim in the waters of, "it's just not fair." And maybe some of you are thinking I pour out my heart and soul to my teen and what do I get…disrespect.   . What's in it for me? That’s actually a good question. What if there is something in this for you Is there anything positive or beneficial that can come out of all this?. Can these hard things shape our character and make us a better human? Can these things cause us to grow spiritually and emotionally?  Yes! No one likes going through hard times, but if you knew that this was making you a better person with a whole new skill set, well, it makes it a lot more tolerable. I hope this episode encourages you. There is light at the end of the tunnel and it's not a train. Good things can come out of the hard. You are not being taken out; you are getting stronger. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
