One Creative Act

Creativity & Parenting — The Daily Game of Motherhood & Growing the Next Generation

Episode Summary

In this solo episode, I’m happy to share what I’ll never master — motherhood. Equally, and humbly, I can share that it is my greatest creative act and what I love most about my life. I share my top 10 simple summer additions for every home to encourage opportunities to build connection with your kids. And I also spill the secret sauce I’ve found to be true in parenting, at least for the first 16 years of being a momma. it changes my relationship to my teens every day. It’s time to see parenting as our greatest game — not to win — but rather to create our days as parents as the most thrilling adventure of all times. How we play the daily game impacts us individually and the next generation to navigate life from listening, loving, and playing. I believe there’s something in this episode for everyone.

Episode Notes

Although not an expert — just ask my kids — I am a dedicated parent of two teens; and I love what parenting teaches me daily. In this episode, I talk about the most under-practiced skill in parenting — listening. Just by bringing this into the spaces and interactions with my kids, connection fills the room and our relationship deepens. My top 10 simple summer additions to the home work (almost) every time to stir conversations and I can’t wait for you to try them in your own home. Creativity would be a fulltime job in parenting, so listen for what I believe is the most important thing we can practice to enjoy our days through parenthood. Be inspired, Momma, Daddy, mentor, or anyone shaping the next generation to be great. And thanks for joining me in the game.
