Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 22 of The New Family Podcast!
For this episode, I talk with my friend Karen Green. Karen and her husband Chris have made the kind of bold change in their lives that a lot of people fantasize about but aren’t quite prepared to actual make happen. Karen was born and raised in Canada’s larges city, Toronto, but a few years ago she and Chris packed up and moved to the country, not just to a little commuter village outside of the city but fully 300 kilometres away to a place Karen lovingly refers to as “the cornfield.” Karen is a writer with a really great blog called The Kids Are Alright and she joins me to talk about moving to the country for a quieter life surrounded by family.
Here are some resources related to my discussion with Karen.
Karen’s Favourite Parenting Advice:
“Trust yourself. You can do it. Don’t second guess. We are the only mother our children will ever have and just trust that we know how to take care of them. Trust your body, trust your instinct. Trust that you know what’s best for your child.”
“It’s not forever. It’s for now.”
