Quote from Episode 3, The Top Priority and Letting Them Grow Up:
"I was so busy trying to make sure that they were good, that I failed to make sure they knew they were pricelessly treasured. Don't make the mistake I made."
Special Thanks to Liz Mall from the Chosen Mamas Podcast.
HIGHLIGHTS of Episode:
What's the Top Priority from Toddlers to Teens?
Fill their LOVE TANKS.
*Fill the YOUNGEST *"love tank" first. When a love tank is full they are able to play on their own better, be less clingy, and have more peace.
Set a Timer for 5-10 minutes at the top of every hour with the toddler for focused time together.
Middles - have a once a day "Mom & Me Time"
*Eye Contact *Close in proximity *Light-hearted
