Description

Welcome to the Holderness Family Podcast! On Facebook and YouTube we are known as The Holderness Family. We make those silly songs and skits with our kids, but on this podcast, it's just us... the real us. The non-Christmas-jammies-us, the why-can't-my-socks-be-on-the-kitchen-counter-us (Penn) the why-do-I-have-to-go-outside-and-talk-to-people-us (Kim).On this podcast, we will share the real-life ups and downs of living together, working together, raising kids together, in what we hope is a funny and entertaining way. We will be taking questions that we are likely unqualified to answer (absolutely unqualified to answer) but we are hoping that the show will make all of your beautiful families realize you're not alone. You're not alone. We are all a hot mess... a HolderMess. The HolderMess: the Holderness Family PodcastThank you for subscribing and listening!Hosted by Kim & Penn HoldernessProduced by Max Trujillo

As someone who has said one of their family’s values is resilience, I have a hard time with seeing my kids quit something. If something isn’t serving me or isn’t something I am interested in, I have no problem saying no. (This took years to master, by the way.) So why do I have a problem with my kids wanting to quit something?This week, we invited our dear friend and parenting coach, Dr. Hope Seidel, on the podcast to talk about quitting. To start off the discussion, she mentioned that technically she quit being a pediatrician to follow her calling as a parenting coach. She likes to joke that she retired from being a pediatrician, because retiring is just a fancy way to say you quit something and have it be more acceptable. (So true.) Dr. Hope Seidel talked to us about how to reframe ending something and to value our children’s character over accomplishments. Listen to the show and tell us about a time you “retired” from something.You can learn more about Dr. Hope Seidel here: https://parentwithhope.com/Learn more about our Summer Book Club for ADHD Is Awesome: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhdbookclub/Come see us at Quail Ridge Books: https://www.quailridgebooks.com/event/pennkimholderness24Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is produced by Ann Marie Taepke and edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and Sam Allen.

Penn here. The other day I drove home from rural North Carolina after yet another youth basketball tournament. There are moments I question my sanity for agreeing to coach my son’s basketball team. It’s a time and energy commitment that can be draining. But there’s something else too. Coaching his team has taught me a great deal and I believe has made me a better parent. Kim and I discuss the lessons that I’ve learned in this week’s podcast and how they translate to parenting in general. After all of the countless practices, tournaments and road trips are said and done after PC “retires” from youth sports…I truly hope what I have taught him and the rest of these boys is something of value to them. Because what they’ve taught me? Priceless.Learn more about our Summer Book Club for ADHD Is Awesome: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhdbookclub/Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.

Hoping you all are enjoying your summer so far. Happy to say that Penn and I are currently in full-on summer mode. After a very busy spring with our book tour, we’ve been lucky enough to squeeze in some beach time in between work, sports, camps, and college prep for Lola. Penn Charles capped off his busy spring with a celebration for graduating from 8th grade.PC was quick to remind us that this was “no big deal,” but we were excited to celebrate him. This sparked a conversation between Penn and me about what other milestones in your children’s lives warrant a celebration (which was also a great walk down memory lane.) Should we throw a parade the last time you have to wipe a butt?Learn more about our Summer Book Club for ADHD Is Awesome: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhdbookclub/Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.

Emotions are hard. Teen emotions are VERY hard. We brought in one of our favorite people to talk to us about the new Pixar movie, Inside Out 2. For the past four years, Dr. Lisa Damour has worked with the writers as they explore how becoming a teenager changes Riley’s emotional world. The author of three New York Times bestsellers, she helps highlight some of the uncomfortable emotions that are part of our everyday lives.Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.

How Summer Has Changed

How Summer Has Changed

2024-06-1843:10

I have fond memories of riding bikes and walking around the mall, with my biggest worry being how to avoid the intense southern heat. Fast forward to today, my 17-year-old daughter’s summer is planned out to the minute. Between college applications, tennis, and being a normal social teenager, her schedule is could be compared to a complex military operation. It made me start to think about how summer experiences have changed since I was a kid, but also since becoming a mom of littles vs teens as well.We dive into all of that in this week’s podcast, as well as venturing into the absurdity of women's swimsuits and how the song "Summer of 69" by Bryan Adams has ruined me. What are your summer plans??

Penn and I do lots of things together. We work together, we live together, we travel together, and now we… dream together? (No, like literally the same dream. What do dreams mean?!) On this week’s podcast, we brought in expert dream analyst Jane Teresa Anderson to see if she could unravel that dream for us (and she also unraveled some of yours from those who called in!) Jane Teresa defines dreams as: “The experience that you have when your brain and your mind are processing the last one to two days of all your conscious experiences and your unconscious experiences trying to make sense of the world.” Our conversation was fascinating and something I hope you all enjoy too!

What a journey this past month has been. Kim and I finished up our final book tour appearance last week in Minneapolis - and we loved meeting all of you! ADHD Is Awesome is research-based and we interviewed many doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists to get as broad a perspective as possible. But in the end, it's written from my perspective. When I look back at the process of writing this book, I wish I'd had the opportunity to talk more about other perspectives than my own. In particular, the perspective of the under-diagnosed woman with ADHD and minorities. In this week’s podcast, we got a chance to speak with Amy Marie Hann, a mother of 3 children with ADHD. Amy herself was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. Her father and sister are also ADHD, as is her husband. Needless to say, ADHD has permeated every corner of her life.  It was incredibly enlightening to talk to her about her own journey and how she has adapted her routines in order to not only keep her own ADHD in check, but also be able to be present and effective in raising her children. You can learn more about Amy Marie here: https://www.amymariehann.com/ Also, you can attend our last book event (for now) this Thursday, June 6th: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhd-is-awesome/#tourShop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.The Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.

Recently, I went back to therapy. Penn says has already seen a difference in me and I can feel it too. I'm a big fan of therapy and have been in and out of it, for whatever reason, my entire adult life. Doing the work (plus being encouraged by my doctor to go on a pediatric-sized dose of medication) has made the world a little brighter and easier for me to navigate. It goes without saying that therapy and medication are very personal decisions, but I want to be transparent and set an example for my kids so that they’re aware of the resources available to them.Many of you who have followed us for awhile know that I’ve been talking about getting a hobby for YEARS. (My hobby is talking about getting a hobby.) So, I asked all of you what hobbies you do! And friends, did you ever deliver with some unique ideas. From photography to composting to beekeeping, there were so many great and different suggestions, so thank you. On this week’s podcast we react to some of those suggestions, discuss why hobbies are a good idea, and talk about us being quoted in People Magazine. (Let's set the record straight, BORGs are bad!)

First off, let me say that we are humbled and grateful for you all and the support of our book, ADHD Is Awesome. For the past few weeks, we’ve met so many of you on our book tour and I can’t tell you how incredibly emotional it’s been for us. (I’m a big ball of mush right now.) In this week’s podcast, we reflect on our first two legs of the book tour, what we did after finding out about making the NYT Bestsellers list, a really fun star sighting on an elliptical machine, and which celebrity couples that we would like to go on vacation with. (Hint: You have to pick people you’d be comfortable enough to fart in front of. This is key.)In all seriousness, we are deeply grateful for you, and have loved all of the stories, laughs, tears, and awkward hugs. Thank you all for being awesome.

My mother (who I love and adore) moved to town in January to be closer to our family. It’s been wonderful to be able to call her up to see if she wants to go to dinner on a random Wednesday.  So last week, I did just that. Her response? “I have to check my calendar.” Wait, what? As she thumbed through her calendar looking for a free night, I started to think to myself “am I failing at friendship?”I’m exaggerating, because I do have deep friendships and very dear friends here. It’s just that life is busy and my introverted self is more comfortable at home on a Friday night in my pajamas than going to meet up with a friend. My husband, on the other hand, is very quick to go play tennis or grab a beer whenever he gets the opportunity. This week, we got curious about friendship with author, life coach, and friendship expert, Shari Leid. We explored why women form deeper friendships than men and if we are living in a friendship recession. It was a discussion that made us realize not only how we, as men and women, often define friendship in different ways, but also gave us a chance to see what we can learn from each other in terms of being a better friend.

As I write this, we are celebrating 19 years of pure, wedded bliss (do you hear the sarcasm?) NINETEEN YEARS. Our marriage is a freshman in college. Our marriage probably has a fake ID and makes bad decisions in bars. But on the balance, I will say I feel incredibly lucky. We have a really great marriage. This week we discuss our best marriage tips... including why Penn doesn't poop in our hotel room. (Yes, he's all mine ladies.) We also reflect on Lola going to prom and parenting advice for when they go away to college. What's the best marriage advice you have or tips for your kids going away to college? Share them with us!

If you are listening to this on April 30th - the day this podcast came out - our new book, ADHD Is Awesome is out today! About five years ago, we started making ADHD content and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. (Spoiler alert: Your encouragement was a big motivator for us writing this book!) The biggest question we've gotten while writing this was: Will there be an audiobook? Well, today is your lucky day - this podcast includes a preview of our book's Introduction and Chapter 1. We're so happy this book is out in the world. If you get it, we hope you love it as much as we loved making it.If you want to come give us a hug on our ADHD Is Awesome book tour, check the dates here: https://theholdernessfamily.com/adhd-is-awesome/#tourKim and Penn are online content creators known for their award-winning videos, including original music, song parodies, and comedy sketches. Their videos have resulted in over 2 billion views and 8 million followers across their social media platforms since they (accidentally) went viral in 2013. They have a best-selling book on marriage communication, a top-rated podcast, a fun-filled family card game, and most recently, they were the winners on Season 33 of The Amazing Race.Shop Our MerchJoin Our NewsletterFollow us on YouTubeFollow us on InstagramFollow us on TikTok Follow us on FacebookThe Holderness Family Podcast is edited and engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media and produced by Ann Marie Taepke, Julie Frahm, and Sam Allen.

Hi friends, Penn here. As some of you know, I am obsessed with all things sci-fi. This traces way back to my childhood during the Star Wars and Star Trek days that sparked a lifelong fascination for all things space. It’s the main reason that I always wanted to be an astronaut. Fast forward to today, you can see that life took me in a wildly different direction. (Plus I have terrible vertigo so I would have made a horrible astronaut.) Dashed childhood dreams aside, the impact these movies and shows had on me got us thinking. Turns out, the stuff we consume has a greater impact than you think. Walt Hickey wrote a fascinating book called You Are What You Watch: How Movies and TV Affect Everything that discusses just that. In it, Hickey dives into (among many other things) the power of entertainment, how it can have an actual physical effect on us, and how it can greatly shape who we are as individuals and as society. So we invited him on this week’s podcast! Also bonus–after the interview, Kim and I test our 90’s pop culture knowledge with our producer, Ann Marie. (And I remain the champ of Britney Spears knowledge…IYKYK.)  Special Announcement: We launched a 3-part bonus podcast series about ADHD!

I love discovering new things about people through great conversation. But lately I’ve been thinking about how to avoid the pitfalls of asking a question that might make the other person feel uncomfortable or awkward. One of the reasons for that self-reflection is the fact that we have a junior in high school and previously, if I met up with one of her friends, I'd ask, “Where are you thinking about going to college?”  I had no idea how much stress just that simple question creates. (I wrote a blog about it here!) So this week, we asked you to send us your worst and best questions to make us laugh and help us get better! From what NOT to ask a pregnant woman to “what is the first movie that comes to mind when you think of Tim Curry?” Penn and I picked out some of our favorites to share with you on this week’s podcast.

Most of you that have followed us for a while know I’m an anxious person. You know one thing that bizarrely doesn’t scare me? Artificial intelligence taking over the world. There's a lot of hills I'm gonna die on. But if there's a zombie apocalypse triggered by AI? Take me first, alien overlords. Penn is extremely worried about artificial intelligence and what could happen if it gets in the wrong hands. So we invited Dr. Helen Crompton, a professor at Old Dominion University and the Executive Director of the Research Institute for Digital Innovation in Learning at ODUGlobal, on this week’s podcast to educate us.Artificial intelligence will continue to evolve in extraordinary ways, but I now have more tools to protect myself and my family against those who are using it for harmful means.

Let’s Reframe ADHD

Let’s Reframe ADHD

2024-04-0235:161

If you had a button to get rid of your ADHD or someone else’s, would you press it? The perception society has around Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is pretty negative. You would find it hard to believe there are benefits to something that has three unfavorable words as part of its name. I would rename ADHD in a heartbeat if I could. In our book, ADHD Is Awesome, we talk about alternate names we would use or others have come up with. But no matter what we were to rename ADHD, we need to reframe it. This week we talk about changing the perception of ADHD, including the reframing name, traits associated with it, and even your own thinking about your ADHD. Listen to the show and let us know if you had a button to get rid of your ADHD or someone else’s, would you press it? I know I wouldn’t.

I heard of schadenfreude for the first time while sitting in the audience of the hilariously wonderful Broadway show Avenue Q. It means pleasure derived by someone from another person's misfortune. But if schadenfreude is taking pleasure in someone’s misfortune, can you take pleasure in someone’s joy? Enter freudenfreude. On this week’s podcast, we had Dr. Catherine Chambliss teach us how to practice more freudenfreude. Dr. Chambliss shared some of the benefits of freudenfreude and easy practices to include it in our lives (like even if you aren’t feeling that joyous about someone else’s success…fake it! Acting out emotions can help jumpstart those feelings in your system.) Tell us if you have any achievements or fun things that have happened to you lately - we will hype you up! Promise.

I have a solid marriage, a great one actually, but most nights I look over to my husband, who falls blissfully asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow, and I’m filled with RAGE. How does he fall asleep so quickly?!? How does his body let him STAY asleep?! Apparently, sleep disruption like I am experiencing is one of the many (many) symptoms of perimenopause. But sometimes, I feel like it’s something *I* have done wrong, something *I* must be doing right. As if it’s all in my head.  I’m writing to tell you, it’s not. This week, we invited Dr. Mary Claire Haver on the podcast to discuss all things menopause. I was able to read an advance copy of her new book, The New Menopause: Navigating Your Path Through Hormonal Change with Purpose, Power, and Facts. (It will be released the same day as our book!) Her book focuses on everything a woman needs to know to thrive during her hormonal transition and to help her take charge of her health.

Penn here! This week, we recorded a live podcast at SXSW in Austin, Texas about how to (mostly) thrive with ADHD. We talk about how the world wasn’t built for ADHD and what systems I’ve put in place to make life more manageable. My hope is that we can find more understanding for those of us with different, but wonderful brains. If you have ADHD, how would you change your school or workplace to be more ADHD friendly? Big thanks to everyone who attended, we are so excited to get our new book out into the universe.

We Were Loud Wrong

We Were Loud Wrong

2024-03-0539:222

Recently, we had the privilege of going on family vacation in the Caribbean and one of the activities we planned was snorkeling. He was particularly excited about seeing the “nerf shark.” (Yes, he said nerf shark instead of nurse shark.) Penn is very smart. He’s one of those annoying people who took the SAT and got an amazing score the first time. So, I cannot tell you how happy it made me that he thought a nurse shark was called a nerf shark. Easily my top moment on vacation. This story led us to talking about the other things we’ve gotten loud wrong in our lives this week on our podcast.Grab Our New Book, ADHD Is Awesome!

The politics thing is definitely from a place of privilege. For some it is terrifying.

This was so good and encouraging to listen to. My 6 yr old was diagnosed with ADHD. He is about to start kindergarten and my concerns are many. I have also realized that I have ADHD now that we are going through this with him. A lot of the things Inam seeing in him I recognize in myself. I get discouraged because I feel like because I went through similar things I should be able to parent him better. Do yall have parenting resource ideas on your website? Thanks and keep up the good work!

I love you kim. I totally understand what your saying. I have a great marriage and a healthy child, but I am allowed to have depression and anxiety. This episode helped me be so much.

minute 26 - Kim said, “the life of a college athlete is not one i would want” and Penn agreed. i couldn’t disagree more. i was a collegiate tennis player and it was the BEST experience. ive said that so many times to so many people.

Great stuff! I am divorced and wish I knew this years ago! My Ex and I still need to work together through joint custody. Do you guys ever have divorce experts on for those in my situation?

I agree with the virtual learning sentiment. it had Pros and it had Cons. We are definitely for technology. (my husband is a computer programmer.) But my 11yr old son became too dependent on the virtual interactions...partly because the kids on our street their families did not believe in COVID-19, and so they let their kids play with each other, no vaccinations, no precautions - nothing like that. My son stopped playing outside because he was being teased by the other boys, so his world became the online community, which at first was really great, but now I'm seeing that he's going to have a harder time adjusting back to in-person real world when he goes to middle school in the fall. We're going to try and do our best to help him transition back, but uggh!

My grandpa just died in his alzheimers care facility. They saw him declining and were going to let his wife take a covid test and come spend time with him one last time, hold his hand one last time(which was a huge blessing). While she was waiting for the results to come back he passed away in the night. She hasn't been with him since beginning of March. So heart breaking, this month is their 66 anniversary. I feel for you Penn, it's incredibly hard, and that was just my grandpa, I cant imagine it being my parents. Prayers of comfort for you all.

Love Penn's compromise! It was creative & respectful of what Kim wanted. Another idea: Let Penn pick the images w/o obligation to place or glue them down. Big fan of The Holderness Family @KimDHolderness - love your vids & podcasts! <3

This was good! My husband and I have a code word for Mommy Daddy time, and yes we schedule it! For sure, kids are not the #1 priority in our marriage. But every marriage is different, so you gotta find what works for you 💗

How are there no comments? This is the best. I love you guys and have followed you for ages. I was nodding along the whole 38+ minutes. I couldn't agree with you all more. Marriage is hard but you have to make it work for however makes it work for you. Never stop making these. Bump it up to 8 Karen! ❤️

This was a super interesting podcast about analyzing dreams! My reoccurring dream is weird..... I dream that I'm going to the bathroom, usually in a public place, and the stall walls are so low that everyone can see me sitting on the toilet. This dream occurs sometimes every few months and sometimes it can be a few years before I dream it again. I think I first had it as a teenager; I'm in my 30's now. I've had the teeth falling out on and it always freaks me out! I dream about babies a lot too. Like last night, I dreamed that a friend I knew a long time ago was having a baby. I visited her and was about to tell her the my non-drugged delivery was excruciating but her dad cut me off and I changed my word to exhilarating. (what?!) Then I went to the nurses desk, picked up a tiny dark haired baby from off the counter and turned to walk to her room....and then I woke up. I never got to her room.
