  1. Adorable! I’m pretty sure the Calm Game would not have worked on my daughter. She would have just said, “Whoops! I lost,” and start telling us a story of some kind. Love this podcast. I like listening to how you adjusted with where Pavlos wanted to take the conversation.That’s something I hadn’t been good about with Family Time Q&A Podcast with my own children.

    • Thanks so much, Jerry! We were SHOCKED that it worked at first, but my goodness did Pavlos LOVE the calm game. It might be combining it with the ability to earn meaningful prizes to him (like a later bed time…).

      And thank you for your kind words. Learning to adjust to my kids instead of pushing them to adjust to where I was going during casual conversations has helped me connect with them quite a bit. This show, and the feedback and encouragement from our listeners has helped me keep that top of mind, too. So thank you! 🙂

      I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and your family through Family Time Q&A! Keep up the awesome work!
