We love all of our kids – but does each of them FEEL our love in the same way? In Episode 296 Meagan and Sarah take on the famous five love languages as a framework for talking about how we most naturally show love to our kids–and also how they receive it. We talk about our own primary love languages and how they shape the ways we tend to show affection, and also look at the changing dynamics of parent-kid love through the growing-up years.
Making room in your life for romance can be really tricky for moms. We’re often busy and focused on other things, and if we’re single, maybe we’re burned out on the dating game. In today’s Voices episode, Meagan talks from her personal experienced as a divorced mom with love coach Casandra Henriquez about how to create a love vision, put yourself in the driver’s seat when it comes to choosing a partner, and how to keep love alive in your current relationship. In the second half of the episode, Sarah joins Meagan to share an honest look at what love and dating as a married couple looks like after nearly fifteen years. Join us!
Co-parenting is tough, and we’re here to talk about it. This week Meagan and Sarah talk about getting on the same page as your co-parent, how to handle personality differences and baggage from our backgrounds, and why we think kids benefit from different parenting styles (mostly). Plus, Alison Thompson joins Sarah for a fun chat about choosing baby names.
In Episode 141 of The Mom Hour Meagan and Sarah chat with writer, blogger, and activist Whit Honea, who helps bust open some stereotypes about dads and instead craft a picture of fatherhood that is inclusive and inspiring.
Last we talked about traveling spouses; this week’s episode is all about what happens when MOM is the one taking off for a trip. Whether you travel rarely or regularly, we hope you’ll join us for a great discussion on the prep, the guilt (or lack therof!), and the logistics of leaving your kids.
If your co-parent travels – occasionally 0r all the time – you know that holding down the home front is hard work. In Episode 36 we talk about what we’ve learned from years of experience about how to survive – and even thrive! – when your partner is away.
