EP36: Willful Children, Winter Introspection, and the Benefits of Community

This week we are deconstructing our episode from last with with Ayelet Marinovich.  If you haven't listened to that one, go back and download Episode 35.  As a refresher, Ayelet has a beautiful voice, can be found on her own podcast, Strength in Words, singing her guests in, where she educates parents on the importance of play and how *easy* it is to incorporate into our lives. Listen today as we talk about our highs and lows, the importance of community for new parents, and how play shows up in our children's lives.

 

Listen as Kate & Liz discuss:

 

  • Liz’s low - winter introspection and the ripple effect on her children.
  • Kate’s low - battles with four year olds: is it worth it to stand our ground?
  • Benefits of gathering with other moms with children around the same age as yours.
  • How to create your own playgroup.
  • The pitfalls of scrolling Instagram/Facebook as a new mom (and, even as a seasoned one!)
  • Disappointment when expectations aren’t met.
  • The art of following up to create the elusive “mom friends”
  • How the word “play” is intimidating, but YOU ARE ALREADY DOING IT!
