How do I talk to my kids about alcohol? Special Guest: Annie Grace
We are so blessed to have our friend and mentor, Annie Grace on the podcast this week. We took some time to ask our friends and clients the most poignant question on their minds right now to ask expert Annie and the answer was clear. We as moms are desperate to learn more about how we talk to our kids about alcohol.
In this episode Annie explains how our children want independence, while we as their mothers are desperate for togetherness. We talk about how we can balance both of our desire to help support a better bond with our kids. We chat about how we can learn to trust them, and hot to keep them talking.
We ask burning questions like, “how can we protect our children and give them their independence at the same time”? And how do we realize when our child is coming to us just because they want to talk and be heard, and how do we know they need our help, as their mothers, in solving a problem and when can we know it’s okay to intervene for them? Finally we talk about how our own struggles with alcohol can help shape the conversations we have with our children about the topic, and how overcoming and finding freedom can help us be the best possible examples for our kiddos.
