You guys! I am super, super excited about today’s episode! From the second I laid eyes on her, today’s guest instantly stole my heart and has had it ever since!

One of the top questions I get from you is about my relationship with my 14 year-old daughter, Lily, and what it’s like to parent during the “dreaded’ teen years. SO today, my sweet girl -Lily Hutchinson- is here for her first ever podcast!

Today, Lily and I cover a wide variety of topics ranging from tattoos to parenting styles. We chat about:

  • Our secret sauce for creating and maintaining our special bond,
  • How Lily views my parenting style,
  • Striking the important balance between parent and friend,
  • Challenges facing teenage girls in today’s world from acne to comparison.

I just love this girl so much! She is so sweet, such a great listener, and I couldn’t be more proud to be her mom. We had so much fun recording together, and I know that you will have just as good of time tuning in!

Go give your mom or daughter a hug today if you can.

Love you, mean it.

My son was on accutane. It will get really bad before its clears. Like 3 months of severe acne. So it’s really strong. Will make bones hurt. My son just finished 6 months and he loves his skin.❤

I love this! My girls are 14 (almost 15) and about to turn 10. They are polar opposites and drive me crazy but they are the lights of my life!


Loved this episode! Listened with my 10 year old daughter! Do more. We struggle with her wanting to talk or express feelings. Xoxo
