Whether it’s a medical emergency, a surprise diagnosis, upheaval at school, or a mental health situation, most moms will at some point be called to fight hard for their kid’s health, safety, and best interests. And when that moment comes, you might be surprised at what’s most challenging and what’s most helpful. In Episode 297 Meagan shares publicly for the first time a recent family crisis that put her in a position where she had to quickly and fiercely advocate for one of her kids. She shares what she learned – and is still learning – and how the lessons apply to advocating for our kids, even when we’re not in crisis.
