Thursday, April 29, 2021: Raven Picks Em; Home Renovation; Weirdest Punishment Ever

Did you get an allowance as a kid?  Do you give your kids an allowance?  Anna never had one growing up, and Raven just started working as a pre-teen, so they were both surprised to see a new app that makes it easier to give your kids an allowance!  (:15)

As a parent, you sometimes have to miss one or two games or special events that your child is in.  But if you missed your son’s game, and then say THIS to him when he calls you afterwards, that’s all I need to know about you!  (3:08)

Do you bite or lick your ice cream?  Anna read that the answer is actually determined by your DNA!  Raven thinks that’s ridiculous, so he called his dentist, Dr. Lawrence Leavy to settle the debate! (6:39)

Are you up to date on this week’s news? If not, Anna and Raven can help!  Anna picks three crazy news stories, and Raven picks one to talk about. This week the options are; why a farmer built a wall of manure; how a 12 year old is graduating from both high school AND college; a woman finds a live snake on the shelves in Target!  (9:51)

How long did your home renovation project take?  Anna is on week 8 of a “3 week max” project to remodel her kitchen and she’s starting to get desperate!  She’s been living off take-out for two months!  But one caller has got her beat on a floor renovation gone horribly wrong!  (13:33)

Have you been to a “Ghost Kitchen”?  Since the pandemic shut down so many restaurants, they’ve been popping up everywhere!  Anna has been sending her husband Paul out to get food from these places, and he’s got some insight into what they are and how they operate! (20:13)

What’s the craziest punishment you ever gave your kids?  How about the craziest punishment your parents gave you?  A mom on Tiktok has gone viral for throwing out all her son’s toys after he refused to clean his room, but she seems tame compared to some of the people calling in!  (26:35)

Couples Court: Maureen and Nathan’s ten-year-old daughter got into a fist fight with another child at school. She was suspended from school and mom is furious. She is madder at her husband because he didn’t punish her and told her she did the right thing. Nathan says the girl she hit is a bully and she has made fun of their daughter’s weight a few times, she deserved to be punched in the face. Mom says that’s not how you handle disagreements, their daughter was wrong to throw the first punch. Dad says she had gone to the teachers in the past and the bully called her fat again, she should have hit her harder. Whose side are you on?  (37:54)
