Resources from Abigail at Mother Flipping Awesome
The workshop on April 12th ended up being an interactive series of conversations where people shared personal stories from their families. So instead of the recording, we are giving you some extra resources from Abigail that we think might be helpful in relation to this topic. Check them out below… 👇
1. Abigail interviews Julie Lythcott-Haims — author, speaker, activist and former dean of admissions at Stanford University, about her latest book "Your Turn: How to Be an Adult." 🎙
This funny, heartbreaking, and deeply inspirational talk between two new friends examines the skill-sets today's kids must learn in order to become tomorrow's thriving grown-ups. A must-listen, no matter how old you are!
Check out the interview HERE!
2. Masterclass on “How to Get Your Kids to Eat Dinner” 🍝
In this class you'll learn these yummy ideas:
👉 APPETIZER: We open with tips for getting your kids to actually come to the table!
👉 MAIN COURSE: We will share a giant spoonful of methods for getting them to eat a really good meal!

3. Masterclass on “Inside the Mind of Your Strong-Willed Child” 💪
Your friend's kid stops when she asks him to take ice cream off the shelf at the store, but your kid would lock you in the freezer if it meant they'd get the ice cream. You're not crazy. You're not imagining it. Some kids are more... determined. This class explains why this is, and what you can do about it.
