Today we’re looking back on past summers and remembering the choices we appreciate and the ones we regret. This is a fantastic episode to listen to if you’re starting to plan your summer! We cover family traditions, camps, childcare, travel, and overall philosophies for fun (with boundaries). There’s a fine line between unstructured leisure time and going off the rails, and hopefully our reflections will help you find the right balance for your family. Join us!

I just wanted to caution you about one of your sponsors-sorry!!! — everlywell hasn’t responded to my family regarding an order we placed with them 3 months ago… and that made me look at the BBB reviews-not good. Sorry-just an fyi.
