  • 29. Wrong Answers Only

    42:38
    Every now and then, there are times when I really just need to laugh. The world can feel so heavy, it’s nice to have an escape from time to time. On this week’s show, we play the game Wrong Answers Only with our producer, Ann Marie Taepke. In the game, we are given a piece of obscure trivia and we have to give the wrong answer on purpose. What transpired were a ton of laughs and some knowledge that will probably help us the next time we watch Jeopardy. Also, learn about our secret mission with Project Noodle!

  • 28. Let Your Kids Quit with Dr. Hope Seidel

    34:02
    As someone who has said one of their family’s values is resilience, I have a hard time with seeing my kids quit something. If something isn’t serving me or isn’t something I am interested in, I have no problem saying no. (This took years to master, by the way.) So why do I have a problem with my kids wanting to quit something?This week, we invited our dear friend and parenting coach, Dr. Hope Seidel, on the podcast to talk about quitting. To start off the discussion, she mentioned that technically she quit being a pediatrician to follow her calling as a parenting coach. She likes to joke that she retired from being a pediatrician, because retiring is just a fancy way to say you quit something and have it be more acceptable. (So true.) Dr. Hope Seidel talked to us about how to reframe ending something and to value our children’s character over accomplishments. Listen to the show and tell us about a time you “retired” from something.You can learn more about Dr. Hope Seidel here: https://parentwithhope.com/Learn more about our Summer Book Club for ADHD Is Awesome: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhdbookclub/Come see us at Quail Ridge Books: https://www.quailridgebooks.com/event/pennkimholderness24Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is produced by Ann Marie Taepke and edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and Sam Allen.
  • 27. Life Lessons from Coaching Youth Sports

    36:06
    Penn here. The other day I drove home from rural North Carolina after yet another youth basketball tournament. There are moments I question my sanity for agreeing to coach my son’s basketball team. It’s a time and energy commitment that can be draining. But there’s something else too. Coaching his team has taught me a great deal and I believe has made me a better parent. Kim and I discuss the lessons that I’ve learned in this week’s podcast and how they translate to parenting in general. After all of the countless practices, tournaments and road trips are said and done after PC “retires” from youth sports…I truly hope what I have taught him and the rest of these boys is something of value to them. Because what they’ve taught me? Priceless.Learn more about our Summer Book Club for ADHD Is Awesome: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhdbookclub/Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.
  • 26. Summer Mode & Mundane Celebrations

    35:33
    Hoping you all are enjoying your summer so far. Happy to say that Penn and I are currently in full-on summer mode. After a very busy spring with our book tour, we’ve been lucky enough to squeeze in some beach time in between work, sports, camps, and college prep for Lola. Penn Charles capped off his busy spring with a celebration for graduating from 8th grade.PC was quick to remind us that this was “no big deal,” but we were excited to celebrate him. This sparked a conversation between Penn and me about what other milestones in your children’s lives warrant a celebration (which was also a great walk down memory lane.) Should we throw a parade the last time you have to wipe a butt?Learn more about our Summer Book Club for ADHD Is Awesome: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhdbookclub/Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.

  • 24. How Summer Has Changed

    36:23
    I have fond memories of riding bikes and walking around the mall, with my biggest worry being how to avoid the intense southern heat. Fast forward to today, my 17-year-old daughter’s summer is planned out to the minute. Between college applications, tennis, and being a normal social teenager, her schedule is could be compared to a complex military operation. It made me start to think about how summer experiences have changed since I was a kid, but also since becoming a mom of littles vs teens as well.We dive into all of that in this week’s podcast, as well as venturing into the absurdity of women's swimsuits and how the song "Summer of 69" by Bryan Adams has ruined me. What are your summer plans??

  • 23. What Your Dreams Actually Mean with Jane Teresa Anderson

    50:13
    Penn and I do lots of things together. We work together, we live together, we travel together, and now we… dream together? (No, like literally the same dream. What do dreams mean?!) On this week’s podcast, we brought in expert dream analyst Jane Teresa Anderson to see if she could unravel that dream for us (and she also unraveled some of yours from those who called in!) Jane Teresa defines dreams as: “The experience that you have when your brain and your mind are processing the last one to two days of all your conscious experiences and your unconscious experiences trying to make sense of the world.” Our conversation was fascinating and something I hope you all enjoy too! What are recurring dreams that you’ve had and what do dreams mean to you?
