Here’s a review of the questions we discuss in this episode:
- What are good, practical survival tips for our marriage?
- How do I hit the reset button after blowing up at my kids?
- I struggle with setting limits on technology.
- I’m a single mom and I’m all alone.
From Jody: In September, we will be welcoming into the world our fourth child in 5 years. We are very excited. But it is definitely tough because we have zero help from grandparents and are on our own. What are some good practical survival tips for our marriage in this season to keep it “till death do us part and not till kids do us part?”
From Jenny: Two sick toddlers + one sick mommy = a terrible, horrible morning today. After the dust settles though, how do I come back from that? My kids recover more quickly than I do. How do I hit the reset button after blowing up at my kids and show them patience and love again, without needing to take a break from them?
From Jenny: I have a three-year-old and struggle with setting limits on technology but also allowing her to explore technology. I don’t want her left behind with knowing how to use it but I want her to be a kid and learn how to be independent of it. I struggle with the balance.
From Kerry: I’m a single mom. My boyfriend left when I was 3.5 months pregnant. I’ve now been on my own for the past six years. I am all alone. What can I do? I’m missing the conversation with an adult. I read books, I read the Bible, but I miss socializing with friends. I go to church, but the church is so big. I don’t particularly like hanging out with other couples with kids. I do sometimes and the dads try to include my daughter in wrestling, etc. but it’s just not the same. Help?
