What Does My Child Need From Me Before They Leave Home?
As parents, we often find ourselves caught in the bittersweet moments of our children growing up. It’s a journey marked by countless milestones, each one bringing a mix of joy, pride, and a tinge of nostalgia. It’s a time when we’re forced to confront the passing of time, the ebb and flow of life, and the profound impact our children have on us.
But amidst the whirlwind of emotions, there is an undeniable beauty in this journey. We’ve witnessed our child grow from a curious, wide-eyed toddler to a confident, driven young adult. We’ve celebrated victories and embraced challenges together, forming a bond that transcends the parent-child relationship.
In this episode, our guest is Nellie Harden, a Family Life & Leadership Coach, helps parents eliminate power struggles with their tween/teen daughters and grow into confident, wise, and respectful young women. She is a wife and mom to four teen daughters herself, an author, speaker, and podcaster, a homeschooling parent, and an adventure chaser.
Today, Nellie will teach us to let go, to trust in the values and lessons we’ve imparted over the years, and to have faith in our ability to forge our path.
