I want to share some of the things I’ve learned and some of the resources she’s shared.
First, a few guided prompts:
Can we create a space of love and let our kids be free to be who they are without judgement?
Can we surrender to the idea that we can’t control our kids and recognize that that’s when they have the freedom to decide what to become and create?
Can we pray to see our kids the way God sees them?
Next, a few quick reminders:

Kids crave boundaries!
Define your family brand or the world will define it for you!
Then, a few mantras. Adjust each one to inspire your family!
