My brilliant, beautiful daughter Avery is turning 22. I’m so proud of the woman she’s become, and the relationship we’ve built. I’m celebrating her by opening up about all the ways I screwed up raising her. Avery grew up as the younger sibling of a strong-willed older brother, so she experienced it all. But we’ve proven that being human and making mistakes doesn’t have to drive a wedge between mother and daughter. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. How honesty and humility about your mistakes can help you build a close, resilient relationship with your kids, from childhood through adulthood.

  2. That it’s possible to break cycles of trauma and mistreatment even if you’re not a perfect parent.

  3. How the relationships you had - or wanted to have - with your parents inform the relationships you have with your kids.

And much more!
