Ep. #8 – What is Your End Game?

We have to do more to prepare to get a driver’s license than we do to become a parent. Wouldn’t it be great if there were high school and college classes that helped us all reflect on what it means to raise a human being for 18 years? In today’s episode we will look at what tools and values you would like for your child to have when she reaches the age of 18. Once you have clarity on your end game you will have a litmus test for the boundaries you set and a well thought out reason for all your yes’s and no’s.
