Podcast Review: Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child

Devonte Lawson reviews the podcasts "BLYSS", "Breaking Bread Socially", and "We Are Generation Z" By Devonte Lawson

Are you a product of your parents’ discipline? This “BLYSS” podcast episode sheds some light on discipline. Do you remember specific rules our parents were strict about? We knew there were consequences of our actions. We learned from where we fell short. Many parents believe intimidation can keep their children from breaking the rules. However, in this podcast, it is more important that the child understand WHY those rules are in place. If your rule is “No ‘Fortnite’ after 11 p.m. or else,” then that can tempt children to want to play longer; opposed to understanding why getting enough sleep is vital.


“Break Bread Socially”

Podcast host MJ Allen describes the gap existing between millennials and Generation Z. “Alone we are smart, but together we’re brilliant.”  As a guide to combine our efforts, he suggests we:

  1. Have a set intention.
  2. Add value to people’s lives.
  3. ALWAYS follow up! 

These are great tips for building connections with one another.


“Topic Roulette”

In this episode of We Are Generation Z, the hosts target those of us who dedicate our lives to following pop culture on social media. Ask yourself: “am I in the culture?” Some would argue that relevant pop culture is important. However, Keeping up with the Kardashians may be addictive, so be careful!
