Do you wonder how to get out of feeling like a martyr when it comes to parenting? Listen in to find the answers to this dilemma.  

Excited to share a fun conversation I had with KJ a few months ago, we compared notes and shares on what it takes for us to be happier as parents. 

What we talked about:

  • Her journey and discoveries as a parenting journalist
  • How she was perplexed with the complaining and martyrdom culture of western parenting
  • The importance of having your children see you having fun
  • Limiting your heavy involvement and foster independence
  • Looking at the details that bring joy
  • Spotting the lions
  • Children need for disappointed
  • The burden parents experience helping their children do homework
  • Protecting your time and deciding you deserve to have time to yourself
  • Raising good college roommates
