When The World Moves Too Fast For Our Kids

Are our kids growing up more slowly than we did? Is that necessarily a bad thing? Can we encourage our late bloomers to pick up the pace?

Please take our listener survey at! It helps us bring you sponsors you'll love– and it keeps this podcast going!

When we look at our kids– and think of the responsibilities we had and risks we took at their ages– a lot of us think our kids are growing up more slowly. This is definitely not always a bad thing. But when our kid is playing Pokémon and their peers have moved on to Snapchat, should we be encouraging them to blossom? Or letting them stay young a little longer?

Amy and Margaret discuss:

  • why it's good to have "young" kids
  • when to rescue, and when to leave them alone
  • how to make our own homes safe havens for our kids to be exactly who they are
