    When Bob visits a flea market and spots a metal shake plate, he learns an important lesson. And it's not – Shake plates make your vision blurry. Eventually, Bob clearly sees that listening to his parents always keeps him safe. Speaking of avoiding danger, Jesse and Bob discuss talking to birds and answer a listener question about social media.

    Bob’s first day of school – and this podcast – don't go as planned. The bus is early, the students look huge and there's a new bus driver. But that's not the biggest surprise!

That question may be answered, too. Parents, if you've listened to any of our podcasts, please give us your feedback: https://focusonthefamily.com/podcastsurvey/

    Past failures can lead to future success. That's what Bob has discovered. By learning to let go of past flops and flips (did we mention there's waterskiing in this podcast), Bob doesn’t quit and eventually achieves victory. Bob and Jesse discuss how past failures shouldn't stop us from trying new things ... or growing closer to Jesus. Failure is part of life. Instead of being an end, we should see it as a new beginning.

    Eating carrots is healthy, so is having a positive attitude in difficult situations. When Bob goes to Camp Last Resort, he quickly realizes the word “resort” is a bit of a stretch. Instead of letting a moss-filled swimming pool ruin his camp experience, Bob chooses to be positive. He also learns that gravity doesn’t work too well on him. And don’t miss Bob’s response to a listener who has a problem of “getting way too mad.” Get a sneak peak of the "Average Boy" book cover: https://www.focusonthefamily.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/AB-sketch.pdf Parents, if you've listened to any of our podcasts, please give us your feedback: https://focusonthefamily.com/podcastsurvey/

    Bob takes piano lessons ... make that lesson. But he keeps practicing, because that’s the only way he’ll become a famous musician.

    Jesse thinks Bob has forgotten his birthday, which leads to a discussion of their favorite holidays. As fun as they are, they also create certain stresses. Whether it's Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Boxing Day or Jesse's birthday, it's always good to show love and be patient with each other. The truth is, the best part of any holiday is being together with family and friends to celebrate the true meaning of the special day.

    Bob and Jesse begin the podcast talking about heaven – there's nothing more positive than that! Then they look at the different elements of positive communication. It's more than just words. Communication includes tone of voice, body language and a bunch of other stuff. As we communicate with people in our lives, it's good to remember Proverbs 16:24, "Kind words are ... sweet to the spirit and bring healing to the body."

    A rest isn't something just used in music. Baseball players need it. Actually, we all need it. Bob and Jesse talk about slowing down, taking time to rest and getting enough sleep. When we rest, we rejuvenate our minds and bodies. A podcast listener calls in with a question about purpose, leading to a discussion about our ultimate purpose being found in knowing, loving and serving Jesus.

    Being isolated isn't healthy. God created us for community. When we connect with people and have real conversations, we build real connections.

Bob and Jesse also discuss ways to deal with worries. Parents, if you've listened to any of our podcasts, please give us your feedback: https://focusonthefamily.com/podcastsurvey/

    A podcast listener asks if Bob has ever been bullied. This leads Bob to talk about several bullies at his school. Sometimes the bullies even bully other bullies. Bob tries to make a difference by showing God's love. Dealing with bullies must be done directly and with the help of trusted adults. By not being fearful and showing sound judgment (2 Timothy 1:7), Bob provides a good example of how bullying can be stopped by bringing it to light.
