Episode 6 Show Notes:  

Childhood Is Messy!

Hey everyone!  It’s Episode 6 of Crayons and Tantrums.  Today’s episode is a messy one.  I’m kicking off episode 6 talking about the messiness of childhood.  And messy it is.  From slime, to snack crumbs everywhere to the whining, laughing and non-stop energy of children, it gets messy.

Today’s episode is called “Childhood is Messy!”  I think it’s the perfect title to explain what childhood sometimes feels like and what I’m parenting must feel like to you.  Let’s talk about what makes childhood so messy, the impact of the messiness and what you can do when the messiness becomes overwhelming.  Listen Now!
