    Ep: 11 What does sharing your story have to do with parenting?

    Ep: 11 What does sharing your story have to do with parenting?

    Just minutes after I recorded the last episode, I got a call from my son that I shared the story about him. I told him about what I have planned in the next few months, and discussed the importance of sharing stories, and he said, "What does sharing your story have to do with parenting?"
    I answer that question in this episode more in depth, it's a great question!
    Sharing challenging stories, and especially about your kids is not easy, and that's why I've done this in a safe environement in Team Trusted, our private community, and an aspect that I'm excited about in the Transform Retreat (some will be anonymous) for those that feel safe to share.

    Ep: 10 How I was able to help my teen with another friends brave story

    Ep: 10 How I was able to help my teen with another friends brave story

    The tears came out today! 
    I wasn't planning to share this today, but I just got back from the gym where I ran into someone (I barely know) and we talked for an hour... I walked away so benefitted from that experience, that it reminded me of how sharing our vulnerable stories has the opportunity to bless others in countelss ways, many we will never know about.
    I share how a friends story she shared 10 years ago stuck in my mind, and helped me bless & support my son, and I'll forever be grateful. (Listen to a follow up to this episode in the next one, number 11).
    Come to the Transform Retreat September 9th! https://kristenduke.com/sales-page-retreat/
    You can always email me an questions, happy to hop on a call and discuss your desire to attend the retreat with hesitations: kristen@kristenduke.com

    Ep 9: Graduation Recap, how I broke trust, & then gained trust with my son

    Ep 9: Graduation Recap, how I broke trust, & then gained trust with my son

    My son just graduated college! My friends on Instagram saw me travel to his graduation on Thursday this week, and you may remember how I've shared in the past that he chose not to participte in high school graduation (and how I eventually became ok with that) but that he dediced to indeed walk in his college graduation.
    I shared a video on IG about him growing up, and the things I EXPECTED him to do that he didn't, and my growth process in all of that. Watch that video here. 
    I then had follow up questions from other mama's asking me, "How is your relationship now?" which I touch on here, and delve deeper into here in this podcast episode. 
    It's a little choppy towards the end, because as I was chatting on my porch into my voice memo (where I record these episodes) my neighbor came over to talk to me, and I had to stop. Since I had to stitch on the ending part 2 anyway, I cut that part out. 
    As always, I share about the benefits of Team Trusted, and how they have helped me and others on the team become a more trusted, safe space for their kids, and we'd love to have you join us.

Sex talk with teens

Thanks so much for this conversation. I feel a lot more empowered after listening!

Child abuser!

I found this podcast through searching for 8 passengers to find Ruby’s sentencing. HOW can you still be posting this episode where a woman who pled guilty to 4 counts of second degree child abuse against the kid’s she’s discussing with you about, still be on your podcast website! The only thing I can think of is you want the unintended traffic from people like me. Which is beyond disgusting from someone who gives parenting advice!! You are condoning her and her behavior by still promoting this episode where you compliment her constantly on what a great mom she is! I never leave reviews but I am just floored that a mother (who gives parenting advice no less!) would promote this evil woman who tortured (yes, she was charged with CHILD TORTURE!) her own children. You need to take a self inventory lady.

Sooo Helpful!

Even though I’m not a parent, I’m a teenager and this podcast helps a lot. I listen to Fist Bump and then come back and listen to this because it goes into more depth. It’s really helpful!!
