199. Guest Angela Startz: Family Peace pt 2

Practically Speaking Mom: Intentional Mom, Strong Family

Sep 7 2023 • 21 mins

Navigating the tumultuous waves of parenthood, especially during trying times such as a high-conflict marriage or divorce, often feels like a daunting voyage. We're joined this week by Angela, a beacon of empathy and wisdom from Hope Works Counseling, helping us chart our course with invaluable guidance. Angela stresses the importance of forging supportive anchors outside our children, reminding us to avoid burdening them with our adult struggles. She also underscores the significance of our words when talking about the other parent and the detrimental effect of negative speech.

As we continue our journey, we learn that honoring our children's other parent is a critical aspect of their emotional well-being, irrespective of our personal sentiments or the status of our relationship. Angela lends her expertise on erecting healthy, Godly boundaries that are deeply rooted in love, serving as protective barriers for ourselves and our children against potential conflicts. Furthermore, she emphasizes the need for self-care as parents, equipping us to offer our children the requisite emotional support they require. With Angela's guidance, we aim to step up our parenting game by becoming more intentional and loving, thereby nurturing a healthier family dynamic.
