For much of my life, my parents, organized religion, and society, in general, had a specific idea of who I had to be in order to be worthy of love. When I did not fit into the box of their expectations, I suffered persecution, rejection, and abuse. It took being exposed to heart-centered people for me to appreciate that many people in the world love and accept others for who they are because they have been taught to do so.

In this episode, Edie and Bill, parents of two sons, join me to discuss:

  • The idea that to love one another, it is important to let go of the expectations we have for how others should be;
  • The most important aspect of who we are and who our children are, which is our character. In other words, how we live the Golden Rule in daily life;    
  • The responsibility parents have to teach children to be empathetic and accepting of themselves and of others; and
  • The need for parents to be the example of responsible behavior and attitudes will help form the way their children treat themselves, other people, and all life.

    BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
