let's talk about Father's Day gifts right so
what's the name of a team so following days in 2 days right so
if you haven't gotten a gift off your last minute person just like I am because I haven't because I'm still last minute just a lot going on right and then you know what all of this stuff that's going on with Coleman and stuff like that I'm sure people haven't really been focused on holidays and things but now that some of the restrictions are lifting we can kind of move about a little bit better but you know I have more access to more stores and things like that so one of my favorite stores to shop in even not for Father's Day I love Spencer's okay so I don't know if you know what the answer is but
anyways as much as has all types of gadgets and things in it from like 420 stuff so I stopped to like sex toys I'm going to go right from like I want to stay all the socks and Ty are gone okay they're all gone get him a manicure kit
so really who buys anyway right and I think a lot of dads don't want a manicure kit so we're just going to go there because anything about a pedicure even though they like that too but I'm talkin about a manicure and I get my data manager kit he likes it he uses the Clippers
okay anyway let's get into the letter when we come back we cannot find out why he likes to take care of her own dad's toes okay let's get into the water
and then we'll be back okay then we'll see but anyway we have a really great letter tonight so if you're listening
listen closely good letter right we usually do like you know people women are pissed off someone doing something but I guess it's pretty good letter
my name is Angie I'm 16 years old and I live in Georgia my mother and my father recently divorced my mother now has a new husband two years later I'm still very upset because I miss my day
which one of these things happen all the time is that okay and then he's attempting to take the place of my dad
I like my mom's new husband but I don't want him to take my dad's place and I would like my dad to come around more my dad has distanced itself because my mom has a new husband how can I explain to my dad and my mom without hurting anyone's feelings that I might want to go live with my dad because I want to spend more time with my dad
please help
it's always you know when we get letters from children
it's always you know it's hard but you know you want to we want to you know guide teams in the right direction so they're not damaged later on in life not that it's our responsibility but we try to give our input on that without you know stepping on any pair of shows but what I will say is
Angela what I will say is you know it's a very hard transition losing one parent whether it's by separation or any other way it's it's a hard time fishing and things are going I don't think your mom would be mad that you wanted to spend time with your dad I think it's a matter of having a conversation not to say anything you know bad about your mom's new husband your stepdad but if you feel like you want to spend time with your dad is really not his place to tell you that you can't and I don't really think that he would feel some type of way about it
so I would say to have a conversation with your mom what do you think because I know that a lot of people have like Blended families these days and different things going on I mean how do you think that she would handle that not I mean I'm asking for I know that you have a blended family so
how would you handle that
first of all no one can ever take your father's place you understand your father is your father that's one but two if your stepfather isn't that bad you don't have to be you know so push back you can try to get to know know him as you know individual maybe you know he just doesn't want you to dislike him so he's trying hard to show you that okay even if your father is not here I'm I'm here as well even though I'm not your father you know it doesn't
now let me put it like this as far as your father goes maybe you need to reach out to your father and let him know like you'll be nice and try to have a conversation telling your father like you know I would like to see you more have you around more you know just because my mom is with someone else doesn't mean that you have to stop being my father
so I'm actually wondering what the Dynamics is between the mother and the new husband because I can play a big part in a big role and how your child receive you've received the parents like when I say that I mean what's the dynamic between you know the step father and the father so is a father not coming around because he feels like he's getting into it with the step dad or or is it step dad but he's not in front of the child to the child here because you know Kansas to have conversations behind closed doors but you know
we really don't actually know but you know just from what you wrote I will say is that you know it's not bad and you're not doing the best thing by getting to know you know your stepfather but also you need to be able to communicate with your father and let him know how you feel
and you need to have that conversation with your mother as well
I mean it's true I think sometimes parents when when their children or when our children turned a certain age before we still forget I mean six team is a teenager but we have to remember they're still children so it's not a situation where OK this this is an adult
and mistreat the child has such because they're still at at 16 yes they can communicate yes they can make decisions and say I like this I don't like that but they still don't have all the tools to communicate effectively in the way that they should and you don't want to create a situation parent you don't want to create a situation where your daughter is looking you're done your daughter your son your child they're looking elsewhere for answers and they get answers that lead them down the wrong path
so if anybody wants to call in comments think about the letter or give any advice 888-627-6008 we are going to take a break when we come back
we are going to get all off into I don't know like what you got going on over there quick easy snacks as a matter of fact so you can make for Father's Day or June 18th new holiday that is now on the books and we'll talk about all that good stuff so we're going to pay some bills so we're going to play

did you ever
alright welcome back to leadership and the song you just heard was Love You by Johnny will since stores everywhere you can stream it everywhere you can get everywhere so he's always got to eat since she's always has to eat just always
so let's get into real quick Juneteenth right so this is a holiday that was just signed on to the books we know that like some employers know he's going to bring this up is because a lot of people talking about it today and ask him questions some employers are recognizing it as a national holidays.
So I guess you just have to figure out and find out if your establishment is actually recognizing the holiday I know in New York federal employees the holidays recognized for so today I was you know driving through you know New York City and thank you sir everybody that you know was off today and making my drive a living hell just saying right
so do you want us to give a little bit of History by Juneteenth what it is before we get into that
if you are working for an establishment that
you're not getting a holiday for today or anything in that sort it's because sometimes your holidays are already written and your policy and that's when they pay you no different holiday sometimes people have Good Friday in there as a national holiday for them sometimes there's hospitals or employment or retailers that don't you know it's knowledge Good Friday you know it's all they always go down a list and see
what actually what actual holidays they're going to recognize so just because you hear them say you know Jen T June 19th is now on a holiday
that doesn't mean that you're going to your job is going to recognize that holiday
when you have holidays already established and you're working environment or your employer where you work
sometimes you have to give up a different holiday to take that holiday so I don't want people out there like thinking that they're going to automatically get drunk because they
put it as a national holiday now you might not it's all up to your employer whether they're going to put June 19th as a holiday and then you end up giving up a holiday or either they're just going to keep it as an extra holiday so I just want to put that out there
Juneteenth is an annual holiday that was the end of slavery in the United States so it hasn't celebrated by all African American
so Juneteenth is basically that when slavery ended
and on Thursday that's when our president signed off as making June 18th a national national federal holiday
okay so on another interesting note did anybody else hear or am I tripping that Black Friday is going to now be named Amazon day or something like that I did
it's going to be Amazon Prime day of prime primary call it now instead of Black Friday
I mean I guess it really doesn't matter what it's called and I don't know what the big deal is because I still going to shop or do what they do
right right as long as you keep those discount coming
I don't know I don't know I don't like him to Black Friday job because you know all that people acting crazy and mad about Electronics nisenson
cuz I did not push you down with cold TV the whole box in your hand and said to take it
I'm just saying it's too much
is it stresses me out right now thinking about it because it's almost here I so let me say we are very short and there are so getting ready to end before where are we were all of our New York listener you know election day is June 22nd and we are encouraging you to go out and vote for mayor
okay girl I'll be saying we and right I mean I like my and all and everything girl but don't be saying we're encouraging you let's just say this would encourage you to go out and vote whatever you vote for that your business but at least go and vote so you can have a voice these are the votes that counts right when we're when we're voting at county-level and you know for the school board these are the things that count so make sure you get up and go out and vote okay and I know a lot of you guys took a shower so don't act like you scared to come outside right
so get up go vote
there are a lot of hospitals that are out there that are actually enforcing the the the backstage and
you know we don't feel like it should be a mandation but I mean I have time for right now but cuz there's so many things like that but anyway so thank you for being here with us remembered as soon and every Friday at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time 3 p.m. Pacific Standard Time to Let Her Send The Pain we will see you here every Friday was so happy to be back.
