Kids are genuinely curious about everything — but they’re also brutally honest. This can sometimes be uncomfortable in public, especially when they choose to stare or ask questions about someone different than themselves. A lot of parents react to these tough with shame, shushing their kids or pushing them away.

Every kid's sports event seems to have at least one of those parents in the stands. While it can be super easy to get passionate about your kid's sports, being the raging parent in the stands does way more harm than good. Today on Raising Heights with Zach and Tori Roloff we discuss the huge role sports played in bringing us together as a couple, the importance of sports for kids and the real purpose of kids' sports activities. Coaches and parents have a huge role to play in helping our kids find themselves, hone their skills and become more confident, driven individuals — we share our take on how to empower kids with love, support and play. ⚽ How soccer brought us together and why it means so much to our family⚽ Zach and Tori’s experience in sports (and why Tori stopped playing)⚽ Why coaches (and parents) need to support both teams and just let kids play⚽ The true value of kids' sports

Instead of giving seven people with dwarfism the chance to play in the new Disney feature film Snow White, they settled with one — replacing six of the classic characters with CGI and animation. While opinions are all over the place on this one, we have some big thoughts — this is Raising Heights with Zach and Tori, and in this episode, we dive into everything Hollywood has wrong, how the film industry could bring light to dwarfism to empower people in the community and how other movies and shows are normalizing dwarfism the right way. We chat about:🎬 Why the new Snow White movie shouldn’t happen (we’re boycotting)🎬 The importance of normalizing dwarfism in film🎬 Shows that do a great job bringing a realistic light to dwarfism🎬 The full power of giving people with dwarfism on-screen roles

Little People, Big World was a huge part of our lives — but it was time to walk away. The show brought us so many amazing opportunities, great memories and so much fun.

Start your own reality tv show, I definitely want to see your kids grow up.

While I love you guys on the show I believe you're lying to yourself when you say you're not holding a grudge. Your kids don't ask to go to the farm to see their grandfather because you don't ask them if they want to go there. They're too young to realize they're missing them. You've isolated yourself from your mother as well and she's done nothing to you. It's a sad state of affairs and one you'll regret when you're in my situation with both parents gone!
