    Teaching children about virtue, diversity, and the value of service; A conversation with Sandy Ciaramitaro of The Good Eggs Foundation

    Welcome to Rad Mom Radio!

    This week's episode features Sandy Ciaramitaro - the Founder and President of the Good Eggs Foundation. Sandy is the author of the Good Eggs Series that teaches children
    the importance of virtues, diversity, and service. After Sandy wrote her book series she felt the drive to turn her books into something actionable, and out of that was born her foundation that "eggs" someone in her community. Every month, The Good Eggs Foundation identifies a program, organization, or individual family that has a need. Taken from The Good Eggs Foundation website, "Once an organization is 'EGGED," it will receive the help that is needed. “EGGINGS” can take various forms, such as offering jackets/hats/gloves, offering school supplies to a group of students, or even helping with local children’s events for those in need."
    You can learn more about The Good Eggs Foundation by visiting thegoodeggs.org - you can also tune into the good eggs podcast where Sandy reads her book series - it's a perfect story time opportunity for your kiddos. You can also check out thegoodeggsfoundation on Instagram and Facebook.

    In this episode we learn about Lesley's background in acting before she switched careers and became an attorney that specializes in litigation. She discusses how her introverted nature is more suited to a career in law and how she balances being a mom and a career woman.

    Lesley describes what it's like to raise a strong-willed child and how this dynamic raises challenges in her home. Lesley in particular wants other moms to know that they are not alone in raising their strong-willed kids. She states that it is important to be real about our failures and short-comings as mothers as there is often pressure to be perfect. Listen in to hear about Lesley's parenting strategies and what she believes are the most important things a parent can do for their child.

    Lesley established a scholarship for young people who come from single parent homes who are also seeking higher education. She started this scholarship in honor of her father Curtis Holloway who raised her as a single dad from the age of 10 after her mom passed away.
