I’ll be back the following week. Be good!
We’re All in This Thing Together
In the year 2000, my husband and I were blindsided by a home invasion. This shocking event would change us as the people we once were. Or should I say…. thought we were! We were instantly transformed into irrational human beings. It distorted our view of the world around us. How would we be altered because of this? Would we be able to stay sane in an insane world?
My beliefs before this home invasion were that everything was going to be story–book perfection. I had already had my life systematically planned out, complete with an organized time-line. You see, as a little girl, like so many other little girls, I always dreamed of marrying my prince charming and living happily ever after. I even designed the wedding in my head with exact precision. Right down to the last hand-sewn pearl on my dress. My perfect husband and I would get married and have 2.4 beautiful children. Twins, plus point four. When they were born, my husband would help with the care-giving of these little bundles of joy equally. Fifty-Fifty. And life would be………
That was my fantasy world. In reality, it is much different. Society has us believing that the mother should be the predominant care giver and have principal responsibility for the well-being of the child, while the husband hunts and gathers to bring home the pay dirt.
My guest for this show will dispel these beliefs and help us understand that there is a better way.
Kristin Maschka will reveal her 4 Remodeling Tools to get the lives we want. In addition, we will be discussing ways for parents to allocate responsibilities equally and share in the contributions of the family’s financial security.
You do not want to miss a minute of this revolutionary show that is sure to start a movement of a new way of parenthood AND parenting.
