Managing Parenting Guilt and Your Village (feat. Crystal Morrison Ph.D.) S6E03

In this week’s episode, Dr. Crystal Morrison and I discuss our personal experiences with parenting guilt. We all experience parenting guilt, but how do we manage it and prevent it from impacting how we parent our kids? Secondly, on the topic of parenting, we talk about the importance of not only building your village but keeping the people within it communicating with each other for the betterment of your child. Dr. Crystal Morrison introduces us to Meerkat Village, a tech platform she Co-Founded that helps to keep everyone in your village aligned and working together.
