Do parents have a favorite child? Is it ok to have a favorite child? In this episode, we talk about some feedback and comments that deal with folks thinking we have a favorite (child). The truth is we love our kids the same, all of them. We have three kids: Ava, Alexis, and Jersey, and have equal love for them all. It's our job to care for our children, provide for them; only judgments of their actions and personality could grant one as a favorite. We hope you enjoyed this episode!

Guess what?! We've been chosen as promotional talent for the 2020 Olympics! This is a big deal for us and something we're very proud of! We try to make content that is inspiring, entertaining, and positive. It feels great to have a brand like NBC and the Olympics want to work with us.

The kids are in school (Montessori). Jersey and the twins, Ava and Alexis, all attend the same school. The girls have adjusted fine in Georgia, they are having a great time, and their teachers say they are leaders in the classroom and model students. Jersey is also doing well - he could be the most polite baby ever! His teacher says that Jersey is super smart, puts things away, listens well, and helps other students. We are so proud of our kids.So what is Dad's fault? You'll have to listen! lol, but it was a golf outing gone crazy. Maybe Justin McClure (dad) should not have let the twins drive the golf cart!** HEAR JUSTIN'S TED TALK! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXZ8Wp1RR-w&t=12sEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.Please SUBSCRIBE, leave a review at APPLE PODCASTS...we would appreciate that!youtube.com/mccluretwinsfamily youtube.com/lifeofami youtube.com/playtimewithjersey Instagram: @jkmcclure | @just_aminat | @themccluretwins | @jerseytayomcclureThe McClure Twins Family on Facebook--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/support
#38 WE'RE NOT PERFECT

#38 WE'RE NOT PERFECT

2019-09-0900:31:21

We started out wanting to talk about the kids in school - they just started in Atlanta (Montessori), but the conversation derails into a recent video incident where Ami had a "wardrobe incident". Ami and Justin McClure keep the conversation tone about the incident and the etiquette of families and those who present perfection.  The McClure Family "brand" is about realness and being authentic, and we hope this humanizes ourselves to you. We make mistakes because we are a small team. Mistakes happen, we love the criticism and open opinions, but there is a line to be drawn with disrespect and blatant rudeness. HOW WE BALANCE FAMILY AND BUSINESS: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/36-HOW-WE-BALANCE-FAMILY-AND-BUSINESS-e510l3Email us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.Please SUBSCRIBE, leave a review at APPLE PODCASTS...we would appreciate that!youtube.com/mccluretwinsfamily youtube.com/lifeofami youtube.com/playtimewithjersey Instagram: @jkmcclure | @just_aminat | @themccluretwins | @jerseytayomcclureThe McClure Twins Family on Facebook--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/support
#37 SHOULD KIDS WORK?

#37 SHOULD KIDS WORK?

2019-08-2600:34:09

As our popularity grows, so does the criticism we get surrounding our family business. Some people feel that what our kids do is considered "work", but that is far from the case.  Our kids do what they love and a lot of that is truly PLAY! They get paid to PLAY! Even then, what is the true harm in children doing parent-guided work, no matter the field. Outside of just being kids, shouldn't children know that the reality of their world one day will be working. Let us know your thoughts in a voice message. What chores or work do your children do?HOW WE BALANCE FAMILY AND BUSINESS: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/36-HOW-WE-BALANCE-FAMILY-AND-BUSINESS-e510l3Email us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.Please SUBSCRIBE, leave a review at APPLE PODCASTS...we would appreciate that!youtube.com/mccluretwinsfamily youtube.com/lifeofami youtube.com/playtimewithjersey Instagram: @jkmcclure | @just_aminat | @themccluretwins | @jerseytayomcclureThe McClure Twins Family on Facebook--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/support
Last week, Ami and I were invited to speak at TEDxBismarck on the topic of managing a family and business when your family is the business. If you don't know what a TED Talk is; It is a conference bringing together visionaries and experts to discuss topics of interests within their industry. This was the first time both Ami and I were invited to speak together and of course, we flew with the entire family to North Dakota. We spoke about the keys to building a family while you work together and the importance of defining your specific roles in the family and the business. Everything we shared at the Talk, and even the information we divulged and dug deeper into in this podcast, can be applied to any business, ESPECIALLY family businesses across all industries. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE ON THE INTERNET: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/35-WE-BOUGHT-A-HOUSE-ON-THE-INTERNET-e4ue2tEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.com Hope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting. Please SUBSCRIBE, leave a review at APPLE PODCASTS...we would appreciate that! youtube.com/mccluretwinsfamily youtube.com/lifeofami youtube.com/playtimewithjersey Instagram: @jkmcclure | @just_aminat | @themccluretwins | @jerseytayomcclureThe McClure Twins Family on Facebook--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/support
YUP, you read that right! We purchased a home off the WORLD WIDE WEB! During our last trip to ATL, we were in search of the perfect house but came back to New Jersey with nothing. Luckily, a friend we had here in Georgia put us in contact with a Real Estate Agent who actually knew of a home that was not on the market yet. Our friend and the real estate agent really came together to assure we fell in love with this property. Together they stayed on top of recent renovations and sent video footage of the home's progress. We're already loving ATL and the warm welcome we've received.Did you listen to our last episode : https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/33-This-Is-GOODBYE-e4pf2eEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.

#34 WE'RE LIVING IN A HOTEL

2019-08-0501:00:10

As you know, we are in the process of moving from New Jersey to Georgia. We've been living in hotels for 3 weeks since our NJ home had to be staged to sell. From California to New Jersey then later in Atlanta, GA, this process has taken a toll on our entire family, but the kids are holding up well. They still find ways to just be kids and have fun in our constantly changing environment. We can't wait until we're settled!Did you listen to our last episode : https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/33-This-Is-GOODBYE-e4pf2eEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.

#33 This Is GOODBYE

Goodbye's are sad and this one is no different, but sometimes there is happiness within a silver lining. The McClure family is moving from New Jersey to Georgia. While we are excited, it's also sad and stressful. We say goodbye to Jersey's and the twins daycare provider; Mrs. Dorcas has been amazing for our kids! She has enhanced the lives of our kids and we are thankful for that. Ami and Justin McClure also talk about the sadness in leaving a place that helped build their success. New Jersey and New York has been good to the McClure family and we will always look back with fondness and happiness!Atlanta, Georgia...here we come!Did you listen to our last episode : https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/29-Im-Having-Surgery-and-Im-Scared-e4c78pEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.

 We created this episode to chat about something very important: how to tell kids about adoption, or how we chose to explain adoption. Adoption to young kids with a loving home is not a big deal - they do not understand how complicated and confusing life can be. Therefore, Ami and Justin had a lot of internal dialogue in deciding when and how to explain adoption to Ava and Alexis. In this episode, Mom and Dad break down their thoughts and what exactly occurred.Did you listen to our last episode : https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/29-Im-Having-Surgery-and-Im-Scared-e4c78pEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.

#30 The Truth About Surgery

#30 The Truth About Surgery

2019-07-0200:34:11

As my abdomen and chest area heals, I am still struggling with a weak core. I thought not being able to pick up Jersey would be the issue, but who knew my entire family would affect my recovery process. YES, MY FAMILY IS TOO FUNNY (LOL) and I cannot laugh without pain. Also, sneezing and coughing takes a lot out of me and I wish it can be avoided altogether. Nonetheless, thinking of the end results are enough to keep my mind off the pain. LISTEN for all the other aspects of recovery I was not expecting.WATCH I Had Surgery Today on Life of Ami: https://youtu.be/TIi8wY4dYFIDid you listen to our last episode : https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/episodes/29-Im-Having-Surgery-and-Im-Scared-e4c78pEmail us: lastweekinparenting@gmail.comHope you enjoyed this episode of Last Week in Parenting.

The McClure Family (sans Justin) was in attendance at Beauty Con - a two-day convention festival centered around beauty - this past weekend. It was the assistant's first time at the front line of a huge, SOLD OUT event where the McClure Twins get to meet and interact directly with fans. It was a bit of an overwhelming experience but they survived the sold out event, almost unscathed but in one piece.Ami & Justin McClure discuss the assistant's harrowing experience. While the family is grateful to be in their influential position, it is best everyone understands the boundaries of five year olds and at what length parents will go to protect their little loved ones.@jkmcclure@just_aminat@mccluretwinsMcClure Twins Family on YouTubePlaytime with Jersey on YouTubeLife of Ami on YouTube--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/last-week-in-parenting/support
