So many families today don’t have extended family nearby. How do we face the challenges that come with raising kids when we don’t have that family support? On the flip side are the families who get to do life together with extended family in close proximity. But what happens when they get overbearing or it just feels like too much? How do we set boundaries in love? In this episode, to kick off a brand new family series, Josh and Christi discuss these questions and discuss their own journey on these topics.
They talk about:
- What it looks like to build a fence around your family and set family values
- Why it’s important to communicate your boundaries with your kids
- Why seeking out “framily” is necessary when you don’t have family support nearby
- The power in holding grief and joy at the same time
