It's not my place to trample on their individuality nor prevent them from discovering who they are within themselves and I am comfortable with that. My role and my goal is to love them and accept them.

Both Lauren (through that blisteringly beautiful episode back in January) and Chemda have gifted me with that philosophy and I will always treasure it.
I've learned this lesson as well, and my husband and I take the raising of our children (5, 3.75 an 2.5) very seriously. We are dedicated to having a ton of fun with our children and spending a ton of time with them. We want them to have security and know they are loved. I feel like this firm foundation will help them know who they are and make better choices.

We have things that of course we'd rather they not do, but in the end, there isn't much we can do about that...so we want them to know they can always talk to us and ask for guidance and hopefully they'll make the right choices. Now, I'm not one of those parents that tells their kids, "if you and your friends are going to drink, do it under my roof" or any of that...we are balancing disipline (having to sit at the table for dinner, not talking back, etc) with good times.

When I hear Keith talk about his dad I get chills because mine was a lot like that as well (though not as much into the object lessons). I'm glad that I am now able to look back objectively at that childhood and learn the lessons of what not to do.

Why does Chemda ramble so much? She talks herself into tangential issues that are irrelevant to her or Keith's original arguments. For example, at 12:46, Keith mentions DJ Quad's email on Steve Job's death, then Chemda brings up fans who try to emulate Keith's demeanor. How are these things related??? Yet during the same topic, at 14:20, she reads a random quote by Dan Hatch: "Maybe Steve Jobs will get Keith and Chemda back together" and she responds, "No, we couldn't hear each other. He broke us up!". What was the point of that entire conversation?

I only complain about this because I tend to catch myself zoning out during parts of the show and I realize that it happens when Chemda has a lot to say. I have to rewind some segments 2-3 times just to figure out what she's talking about-- and I still don't get it.

I do give her a lot of credit. She contributes meaningful information to every conversation. I usually agree with her perspective on issues as she is much more sensible than Keith. I just wish she would practice better word economy by making her arguments/opinions more concise.

i am not sure what you mean, but if you want to hear Chemda's arguments and intelligence in a more contyrolled way, listen to the WMN show. she is pretty much incredible there.

Interesting to hear about more Nazi investigations being opened. My country was actually a German colony back in the day and I've recently learned of at least two families here with a grandparent who was a Nazi and fled after the war. The one person said they were positively terrified of their grandmother's cold personality and strict rules, when she told you to sit up straight at the dinner table and not slurp your soup, you did it. These and, I think, any remaining Nazi's who fled to here have since passed away though, so they managed to escape a trial. I always thought that if Hitler actually did survive his capture that this would have been the perfect place for him to go back then... home away from home.

I diagnose you with ADD, ADHD, and probably some other attention-related disorder that I'm not aware of because I don't pay attention to the current medical literature. That said, 2 points:
  1. Weren't all Huggie-related forum names discredited in the 600-750 show range?
  2. I've listened to all but about 200 of the shows, and I am a hearing-related learner. I have yet to hear KATG bring up a topic during a show, go off on a tangent (this happens a lot), and then not return to the topic. In other words, I don't recall a show ending with me thinking that they left me hanging unless they specifically said wait for the next show.
