There are a lot of things you likely believe that are not true. For example, sugar causes hyperactivity in children. That’s just one of several commonly held beliefs that are not true as I begin this episode of the podcast. http://www.rd.com/culture/false-facts-everyone-believes/

You are constantly talking to yourself. And when you actually paid attention to what you are saying to yourself – you will be amazed. Shad Helmstetter author of the book What to Say When You Talk to Yourself (https://amzn.to/2NfCg9e) and his new book The Power of Neuroplasticity (https://amzn.to/2TWPyKo) joins me with a fascinating look at how what we say to ourselves actually shapes who we are. He also offers ways to stop telling yourself all the terrible things like, “I’m so stupid…” or “I’m such an idiot…” because it can make a huge difference in your life. Shad's website is www.shadhelmstetter.com

Some people try to squeeze the very last piece of toothpaste out of the tube or the last drop of shampoo out of the bottle. Is it worth the effort? How much can you save? I’ll explain the math then you can decide. http://www.thesimpledollar.com/the-last-bit-in-the-container/

In every country in the developed world, boys are falling behind girls academically and socially. Why? What has happened that seems to have marginalized boys today? It seems there are a lot of factors according to Warren Farrell, former board member of the NYC branch of the National Organization for Women and author of the book The Boy Crisis (https://amzn.to/2El9TDW). Warren joins me with a look at how this has happened and how we can all help boys get back on track.

Farrell is not an expert on any of this. Men have been ahead for millennia and now that women are now moving forward and suddenly a crisis? No one thought it a crisis for 1000's years when it's women, but a slight shift and it's a crisis? Oh, please.

I am usually truly intrigued by the discussions on this pod cast. This episode was however a low mark. Warren Farrell does not at all present a well rounded science based view of the subject. Instead his arguments are unfounded in the research literature, as well as out of touch with current debates. Dissapointing

This guy has some seriously antiquated ideas regarding male vs female parenting styles. My gawd. He also has a warped view of feminism

Another great episode! Negativity is reinforced by your mental speak but can be retrained to be more positive, and it is Incredibly important to have a dad in your life, particularly a good father who is open and respectful.
