This is a special interview I did for a local Catholic radio show that I wanted to share with you all.
Summer is an awesome time to kick back, relax, and enjoy extra time with the family. For a lot of parents, however, summertime can be stressful and way overbooked.
From summer activity schedules, to family vacations, to sleep-away camp, I’m talking all things summer break and how to make the most of the summer months.
If this sounds like an issue in your life, give this episode a listen and share with another parent who needs to hear this message.
