How are you making ready for the school years? The query got here into certainly one of my Q&A Saturday features on Instagram stories not too long ago.
I liked how the query was worded as a result of it wasn’t, “How are you financially making ready for school?” Or, “How are you making ready your youngsters academically for school?” And even, “How are your youngsters making ready for school?”
As a substitute, it was extra of a holistic method about making ready for the school years as a complete. On this week’s episode of The Crystal Paine Present, Jesse and I take a deep dive into our ideas on this matter.

- What success seems like as a dad or mum (and it’s possibly not what you suppose!)
- How we begin slowly “launching” our children from the time they’re little.
- Why we have now plenty of discussions and debates in our dwelling
- Why certainly one of our targets as mother and father is to present our children alternatives to face alone
- How we’re looking for to construct robust foundations for our marriage in preparation for our children to be grown and gone
