Raising Today’s Kids—Podcast Episode 2

Brittany and I had a miscommunication and I didn’t realize she had posted our podcast way back in May!  I just got the chance to listen to it last weekend, Episode #25.  It’s fabulous, and available anywhere you download your podcasts—or you can listen, or read the show notes here.  I also listened to several other episodes, and I love them so much.  Brittany has a wonderful way of bringing positivity and peace to difficult topics, which is exactly what we want as parents to be able to do.  I highly recommend the entire podcast, and of course her website.

My Body is a Gift Discussions: Pages 20-23

The one area of sexual abuse that is not covered by this book is parent on child abuse.  While this could be considered a flaw, the purpose of this book is to develop a pattern of healthy conversations between parents and children around sexuality.

I’m including this school abuse incident with permission, as there are valuable insights for parents, whether or not their child has experienced this type of situation.
