    What a wonderful overview of this topic! I learned so much and really felt like my eyes were opened to a lot of ideas I hadn’t considered. My kids are still all under 7 so I feel like I haven’t yet come to this stage of motherhood, but listening to this podcast made me excited. It also gave me a lot to contemplate so I can have my philosophies in place as I merge my kids into the world of extra curriculars.
