Have you ever felt ashamed at the playground? Have you worried that your kids are the only ones playing Ninja Warrior while the others swing peacefully? Have you felt like you just can’t measure up as a mom? This week, Kathi and Erin discuss the reaction to Erin’s new blog post entitled “I’m Worried About Our Girls” and the ways that parents can help their kids build strong, healthy relationships with other kids.

Knowing that every mom has felt shame, worry and stress about playground behavior– and that every mom earnestly seeks what’s best for their children– we openly discuss:

* How little girls can respond to wild boys on a playground.

* The difference between a dangerous situation and a situation that a child can take care of on his or her own.

* How moms can get rid of the shame they feel when their children misbehave.

* How to communicate to our kids that God created both genders lovingly and intentionally– and that neither is inherently “good” or “bad.”

Listen in and then share your own playground experiences in the comments below. One winner will get his or her choice of one of Erin’s books! Plus, check out the “Download” section below to get Erin’s playground toolkit for girls.



There’s a better alternative than whining and tattling on the playground for our girls. This Toolkit is a great start in helping our girl’s use their own words in finding solutions to everyday problems on the playground.
