Call in to speak with the host
Lisa Hein was born in Florida and has has two sisters, Gia and Susan and one brother, Robert. Their family consists of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and grand-dogs. They are all very close even though they live all throughout the country.
She says that her father and mother did an amazing job raising them because there was a clear understanding of how the family dynamic worked. It was understood that 'Yes' meant yes and 'No' meant no. That simple!
The other thing that stands out in her mind is that she never remembers ordering her parents around to meet her needs. She says, that at times, we barely had enough money to buy food , and at a very young age, learned that if you wanted something you earned it.
It's good to talk.
