Is Going Home for the Holidays Worth it?
Holidays bring out unique and challenging situations for Solo parents. Having to interact with old relationships from our past, whether interacting with your ex, ex-in-laws, or stepping into our own family, can sometimes heighten our sense of failure and inadequacy. Or maybe it's being around healthy relationships that remind us, in this vulnerable season, of what we don't have. Being home for the holidays can impact our self-worth. So as we go into the holiday season, we might ask if it is even worth spending time with family when it just heightens my anxiety and negative feelings. So how do we cope with those family dynamics, or those dynamics with people from our past, and try to maintain a positive outlook not only for our kids, but also for our well-being? Today we will discuss this and identify five tips to approach this holiday season with strength.

Best way to start my week!

I love this podcast and this ministry. My favorite part is waiting to hear what outrageous example Robert Beeson uses as a reason to bring up the show notes.

First episode enough for me

It's sure hard to be a single father of two where my kids mom is the one who doesn't want her kids. I put this podcast on hoping to get tips and tricks and maybe some understanding. But instead I hear how the mom is always the hero and has the special relationship with her child and that the dad doesn't need to see his child because it would mess up the kids life having two rooms and two homes. What a biased messed up view to put out in the world. I tell my kids that they can see their mom whenever they like and to love both the parents. I would warn any single parent to not listen to this podcast
