When We Should (And Shouldn't Rescue Our Kids) With Margaret Ables & Amy Wilson

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 83

In today’s episode, we invite Margaret Ables and Amy Wilson from What Fresh Hell Podcast to discuss rescuing our kids – when it is, and more importantly, when it is not needed.

It’s hard as a parent to see our children struggling, knowing we can solve the problem for them, but not stepping in.
Cara talks with Amy and Margaret about examining this impulse and deciding what is right for you, and your kids.

They also go into the ever-present concept of judging – how we judge ourselves, how we think other moms are judging us, and even if we are judging other moms.

What’s great about this set of guests is the age range of all the kids involved – helpful tips and real-world experiences are covered from toddlers to teenagers!
