35: SUMMER OF INDEPENDENCE: We Control What We Do Not Trust
Show Notes

"Trust is the first step to love." --Munshi Premchand

Parenting is hard.
These kids of ours don't come with user manuals and every time we think we have them figured out, they regress, mature, grow, and change and it's like we are back to square one all over again.

For years, I've been operating as a caring, nurturing, supportive mom that is always there to fill in the gaps and keep them going. One that played peacekeeper, interpreter, and chief negotiator.

Or so I thought.

But this summer, I flipped the script and started a new initiative.
The Summer of Independence.
This was geared at making my kids less dependent on me.
To step up.
To start doing their fair share.

Because this mama is tired in this role.
But the first lesson that I learned that I was not playing the role I thought I was. I was making life way harder than I was making it easier...for everyone.

This is a raw look at where I have been falling down, but I feel strongly that I need to start here in sharing with you the lessons learned this summer.
