Twintalk: We Take Our Role, Not Ourselves, Seriously / Empowerment

Listen below or through your favorite podcast streaming app such as Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, YouTube, or Google Play.

Today on the podcast we explore how to separate what we do from who we are. When approaching a challenge with our children, are we in work-mode or worth-mode? We ponder the values AND limits of titles (even Mom) - how they can both empower and undermine our parenting. Taking our role (and not ourselves) seriously requires we become aware of the way our ego can unwittingly limit our ability to care-give. We laugh, we cry, we lean in. Join us!
