Just show up.

holderness kids podcast

Even if you don’t know how.

I have a confession. I read 43827 books on what to expect when pregnant.  I was fully prepared (but still shocked) when giving birth. But, I haven’t had a minute to read a book on how to actual parent these children they let me take home from the hospital. Seriously. Who decided we were responsible enough to be parents of humans? I naively thought, “Once I get them potty-trained we’re set!” (I’ll wait until you’re done laughing). I’m learning the bigger the kids, the bigger the problems. Problems like the soul-crushing experience of watching your kid get DOMINATED out on the field, failed a test, and struggle with friendships. Listen, I know it’s good for them. None of us can float through life unchecked. So how do you show up? What do you say? What do you do when your kids faces disappointment?

It’s a good thing I have fancy friends. One this week’s podcast, we had one of my dearest friends (ahem.. Harvard educated) to talk about how to support your kids in the face of rejection.

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
