The Flamingo Family is back for Season 2 and the kids are headed back to actual classrooms after most of a year in virtual school. Everyone is another year older, a few inches taller (except for Mom), and there are big plans afoot for 2021 and beyond.
Shifting to virtual school when no one saw it coming is NOT the same as home school or "actual" virtual school (both of which the Flam Fam kids have done at one time or another). Here, we discuss the challenges and joys of the sudden shift in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and stay-at-home orders. (And it would be a Flam Fam chat if a few squirrels didn't get chased!)
I hate Trump! I love Trump! Nancy Pelosi sucks. Mitch McConnell is ruining the country. AGH!! Everybody's staying home, which means we're all on social, and the political rants are flying. The Flamingo Fam discusses a different way to talk politics. As usual, several rabbits are chased. (Also, the neighbor's car gets thoroughly ogled.)
The Flamingo Family discusses VAPING: what it is, how kids are getting away with it, and more. Also, the Flaming-lets are shocked to learn that Mom does actually go through their rooms looking for contraband while they're at school. (Don't all parents?!) As always, a squirrel or 7 is chased along the way.
The Flamingo Family discusses video games - what they like and which ones get Firstborn in trouble. Minecraft, Fortnite, Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, CS:Go, PubG, and even Super Mario Bros are covered. The Flam Fam considers the intended and unintended effects of gaming on themselves and the world at large.
Welcome to the inaugural episode of Flamingo Family, where a fam of four living on an island in southwest Florida talks about issues that today's teens and tweens face. In this episode, the family discusses gender dysphoria. What is it? Who has it? Firstborn (14) talks about his experiences with friends in high school. Secondborn (11) barely makes it through the whole episode without exploding. Good times!
