What did you dream of doing when you were in third grade? Joe Granato dreamt of creating an 8 bit video game. His attempts to create this game in the third grade failed, but the dream never died, and sure enough as an adult Joe, with the help of a great team, created his game. He also created a wonderful documentary about this journey. You will love hearing about this incredible journey.

Its The Attack of the Teenage Zombie Episode, or perhaps more accurately, Rescuing Our Teenage Zombie Episode of the We Choose Respect ParentCast. Our guest is Dr David Henderson, author of the fabulous new book My Teenage Zombie, Rescuing the Undead Adolescent in Your Home. Dr Henderson tells us that Zombies are not just found in horror movies, sometimes they’re lying on your living room couch. These are undead adolescents whose psychological and social development have come to a screeching halt. Torn by their yearning for freedom and their fear of surviving the outside world, they have stalled in their maturity, motivation, and purpose in life, hijacked by a helplessness and fear of responsibility. Parents often feel ill-equipped to love, support, and guide them—especially when they may be facing a midlife crisis of their own and battling some of the same issues in their own lives. Is it really possible to escape this “undead” state of being? The answer is YES, thankfully. David L. Henderson explains the parts of a teenage zombie (their brain, heart, and spirit), how they got into this undead state, and how to resurrect them back to life. Using real-life examples of families he has counseled, he describes both their physical and psychological characteristics and offers practical suggestions on how to deal with, and in many cases avoid, having an undead adolescent in your home.

This is a record breaking episode of the We Choose Respect ParentCast. In this episode we meet Ed Roman. Ed Roman is an Award-winning singer/songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist from Shelburne, Ontario, Canada. Blurring the lines between pop, rock, folk, and country music genres, Ed’s uniquely crafted songs have received regular rotation on more than 100 terrestrial radio stations across North America and more than 400 stations, worldwide. Recently, this Top 100 MTV.com and #1 Reverbnation artist traveled to Jamaica to deliver much-needed humanitarian aid to the island, while shooting the music video for “Jamaica.” Ed is also a Heart Songs for Veterans artist, donating money to help veterans with his single and Top 10 Yallwire.com video,, “Lay One Down.” His last album, Letters From High Latitudes (an homage to his Ontario home) was a critically-acclaimed vehicle for Ed’s socio-political, earthly-conscious and globally-aware messages. This conversation, which will go down as the longest conversation we have had on the ParentCast, felt like I was having a conversation with a life long friend I had just met for the first time.
