Children tend to see the world very differently from adults. They see differences and don’t automatically see them as good, or bad. Yet, at some point we all unfortunately learned in our own ways to label, to categorize, and put people in boxes. In this episode Brandi sits with author and spiritual thought leader Monica Berg about her new book The Gift of Being Different, which she co-wrote with her young daughter Abigail. Monica shares her journey and insight as a mother of four children, one of which has special needs. She addresses the feelings and grief that should be validated in mothers who are raising children with special needs, and how much she learned about herself in the journey. If you are looking for ways to increase your compassion, connection, and overall empathy for others, but more importantly teach it to your children... don’t miss this conversation.
