The job of “mom” can be tough! A mother nurtures, disciplines, clothes, feeds and does her very best to protect, all while balancing many more jobs both in and out of the house. With each day abundantly filled, do you find it challenging to invest enough time in building the strong relationship with your kids that you desire? Mom, you are not alone!
In this episode, we give five ways every mom can build that relationship at any stage of their kids’ lives. We share things you can do to develop their character while making treasured and lasting memories. Darlene (mom of adult daughters, Nonie to two, with a published parenting book) and Julie Bender (former single boymom, now considering another child with her new husband) talk through what it takes. You can achieve this sometimes overwhelming but not impossible goal: creating strong relationships as you raise great kids.
