One of the things that leads the way that I parent my children is the desire for them to feel safe and to openly communicate with me about anything that they have going on in their lives. I want to be a safe place.

On today’s episode, Bethany Adkins and Lindsey Maestas are talking about how to be intentional with your children, to foster openness as they get older, how conflict is a part of every home but how you respond to that conflict is what matters most. And we also discuss how to find balance in parenting children when you don’t see eye-to-eye with your spouse.

Bethany and Lindsey both struggle with patience and gentleness, but managing tantrums with grace and having those hard conversations with grace is a part of our journey. We are learning and growing and we want to share that with all of you! 

**P.S. Please forgive my audio quality on this episode, I forgot my microphone at home and was at the office. So sorry!**
