As parents, we all hope to grow up confident and capable. We want them to make good choices AND chase their dreams. But we’re also worried that they’re going to make big mistakes, or even get hurt.

That’s why I’m excited to talk with Esther Joy Goetz. Esther is an author, speaker, and the force behind the popular Moms of Bigs social media community. She’s here to help us find that balance between nurturing our teens and letting them go.

Key Takeaways

  • Creating a safe space for teens to become their own individuals is crucial.
  • Building a long-term, healthy relationship with teens is the ultimate goal.
