The Boy Mom Podcast with Monica Swanson and Friends


Sep 8, 2020

This is the final episode in our summer series exploring The Joys and Challenges of Every Stage of Raising our Sons.  And this is one of my very favorite stages to talk about (maybe because two of my sons are in it now!)

No matter the age of your son(s), I think you’ll be encouraged and inspired by this conversation!  Author, podcaster, speaker, and musician, Gwen Smith, joins me to talk about preparing ourselves, and our boys, for the day they launch into independence – whether that is college, the military, or the workplace.  Gwen has two sons (and a daughter) who are in or recently graduated from college, and her perspective is incredibly insightful!  We cover everything from all of those high school “lasts” (have the tissues handy,) to coaching our kids (from a distance) as they deal with life challenges, spiritual questions, dating, and more. Gwen and I both love our relationship with our college-age kids so much, and we wish that for everyone! 

Even if your kids are young, I think you’ll get a lot out of this episode.  Also: The grandmas are right when they tell us:  Blink, and your kids will be there, too!
