“Raising Kids

What would it feel like if your kids listened the first time? Awesome, right? But let's be honest for a minute. Raising kids is HARD work. They don't always listen the first time. In fact, they might not listen the first time...a lot. The good news is it's normal. The even better news is there are a lot of simple tools and strategies you can use to help your child regularly listen the first time.”

Mom Life

“Mom Life

Being a mom comes with a lot of unexpected challenges. But that's not even the hardest part. Truth. The hardest part is many of those unexpected challenges aren't spoken about in parenting and motherhood books. Sometimes we even have a hard time sharing those challenges with our closest friends. I believe we all have something to learn from each other, which is why talking about the hard (and imperfect) moments is so important.”
