This past fifteen years as a mom has sure taught me a lot about letting go, about getting over things, about fixing and moving on, about trial and error, and about finding beauty in the midst of hard stuff. A recent hike with my kids helped me realize all this more deeply.
We all hope for strong happy friendships between our children, right? In this episode, Saren shares three important ways that we can set our children up for strong friendships now and in the future.
We all want to raise responsible, grateful, helpful children. But that can be a challenge in a society where children feel they “need” the latest and greatest phone, clothing, etc. and where children feel put-upon to help out around the house because apparently none of their friends ever have to clean their rooms or do the dishes or complete whatever task we ask of them.

Do you ever feel inadequate? Does it ever seem like all your hard work as a mom isn’t amounting to much? This beautiful video helps put things into perspective.
I used to have more mom-related demands in some areas (diaper changing, mess-clean-up, bathing and feeding kids) and a lot less in others (driving to activities, helping with homework, dealing with moods, emotions, and friend drama).
