On thinking retrospectively on your own childhood while parenting:
_13:59 "I just think it helps when we take that step back and we think about our child."
_14:27 "If we say, hey, try to think back on what you were like when you were those ages. Ask your partner, ask your friends. I mean, none of us were adults at that age. And to have the unrealistic expectation that that's going to happen is bad for everybody. "
