“Even moms make mistakes.” In this podcast Lacy Anderson talks with author, speaker, and mother of five, Emily Watts. They talk about how mistakes (ours and our kids) play a big part in our role as mothers. Seeing their mother admitting mistakes and apologizing for them can be the best lesson our kids will ever learn from us.

I loved this podcast. I love the concept of allowing our kids to make mistakes and learn from natural consequences when they are young. Reminds me of a good book I like, “Parenting with Love and Logic”
What a fantastic podcast thank you so much. This conversation was such an eye opener for me – as I realise I’ve grown up feeling like my mum got everything right, and as a new mother I have felt such a pressure to be ‘perfect’ like I thought she was, subconsciously almost. What a relief to think my mistakes (which are inevitable) can actually be a positive to my children – rather than somehow damaging, if I deal with them in the right way. Life changing! Thank you!

BEAUTIFUL thought here, K! I think we all need to feel that relief each day…so we know that we have a way to correct all of our mistakes. (Goodness knows, I need that reminder!) Thanks for being a part of our community!
