As we go into summer I wanted to have on one of my favorite parents on the show to help us with some intentional parenting ideas. Jess Klasnick is a mom of three, wife to Matt, and lives in Breckenridge, Colorado. Her family had a conversation one day about what mattered to them, and the result of those conversations meant upending their current life to follow that dream. They traded the goals of having a Fortune 500 job that kept their family apart to finding a way they could spend more time together.
They sold all their possessions, saved up money, and traveled the world for a year, think “the bucket list family” and then after they decided that they still wanted to live a life of intentionality. For them that meant moving into a 2 bedroom condo in the mountains and choosing a different way to live.
Jess gives us some incredible questions to ask our family. She gives us tips on how to prioritize our family time and she also gives us some great advice on how to dream and follow those dreams. Because building a life you dream about with your family matters.Jess gives us the courage to be confident in having different values for our families.
Every family will be different, but I believe coming out of quarantine there were some things we all learned and things we can all prioritize better. Jess helps us get to the heart of what we desire as a family.
We also talk about some great ideas for summer with our kids; ways to help them be responsible, learn new things, work as a team. Think ideas on chores, house managers, giving our kids the freedom to fail and try again. Ideas you can start today.
