Welcome to Voices of Your Village episode 137! Today I am hanging out with Jennifer Anderson, you may know her as the mama behind Kids Eat in Color. Her instagram is one of my favorite follows.

She often talks about boundaries and creating a schedule around eating, as well as why we don’t use things like food as a reward and why it is really damaging to comment on a child’s weight. I love getting to learn from Jennifer, and I am so jazzed to get to share this episode with y’all today. Let’s dive in!

The Enneagram in Parenthood

voices of your village Jul 16, 2020

Hey, everyone! Welcome to episode 129 of Voices of Your Village! A mama posted into our Facebook group asking about the Enneagram and there was this fun thread going on, when another mom popped into the thread to say she worked with the Enneagram. So, I asked her to come on and join me for a podcast episode because the Enneagram test is something I am so new to, but fascinated by. I think of it as one of those personality tests, but it is the most accurate thing I have found. We use it for Seed, everyone who joins my team takes the test so I have a better idea of how to best show up in relationship with them.

In this episode, we are diving into how the Enneagram can show up in your...
