Conversations with kids improved!!!
Loved this episode! So many great insights! Wha a great team you are! Wish I had realized the fear vs. faith pattern when I had children in my home!! Conversations and understanding would have been better!!! Every parent needs to hear this, think about it, and apply it, in their own unique way!!
Excellent podcast for Latter-Day Saint parents
So far, I’m loving this podcast! I love that it is based on scripture, bringing us back to Christ as the one who can guide our families through this crazy world. I have been wanting some parenting advice through a gospel lens and this is just what I was looking for!
