Parenting Our Future

I think it’s safe to say that all parents have a LOVE HATE relationship with technology!   I’m no different!   Most of us are just trying to figure out how much is too much, and we’re scared it might already be too late for our kids who seem to be hooked on devices.  Don’t fret!  There’s HOPE!

Parenting Our Future

One of the things I’ve been really good at, especially since becoming a mom, is beating myself up.  I know you know what I mean.  As moms, we all do it because we think we have to do it all.  We tell ourselves we aren’t good enough as moms and we SHOULD know how to do this parenting thing…but how should we?  We know being a parent is the most important job in the world and when we struggle, most of us have deep shame.

Parenting Our Future

Nobody is good when you are operating on little sleep. Not you OR your kids! So often we get frustrated when our kids resist sleep, come out of their bed multiple times, won’t sleep unless they are with you or have frequent night waking.

Parenting Our Future

This is an episode that EVERY parent needs to listen to.  Pornography is simply, picture poison and is a health crisis we can’t ignore.  Any child with a device has access to porn.  By the age of 12, it’s extremely rare for a child not to have seen a pornographic image according to my guest and author, Kristen Jenson.  There are SO MANY reasons why you NEED to teach your children to reject porn.

How many times have you thought “my kid doesn’t appreciate anything I do!”  Teaching gratitude is something we have to teach our kids but it’s also something we have to model because we all know our kids don’t do what we say, they do what we do!   Julie Boyer, Gratitude Guru, shares some simple, age-appropriate ways to cultivate gratitude in your life and how to teach it to your kids!  Why should you care?  Because living in gratitude makes you feel more joyful, connected and present!  We all need more of that, don’t you think?
