StrongHerMe episode 77 Susan Seay

For the month of August our conversations on the podcast will help parents transition their families into a new and very different school year.My guest for today’s episode is Susan Seay. Susan is an international speaker, podcast host of the Mentor 4 Moms Podcast and a certified life coach who helps busy moms make the shift from overwhelmed and distracted to intentional and living on purpose.  She’s also a homeschooling mom of 7.

Susan and I talk about how to intentionally parent our kids for this season of schooling, that may be our normal for a while, without overwhelming ourselves.

In this episode we discuss:

        • exchanging a list of house rules for living your family’s core values
        • the peace that comes when we let go of the need to control the household responsibilities
        • setting the environment for a successful school year
        • shifting our focus to the benefits of an unprecedented year of schooling during a pandemic
        • the evolution of our parenting styles
        • how Susan started reclaiming her voice

Quotes from the episode:

“My definition of intentional is having both the courage and the confidence to live true to your core values.” – Susan Seay

“I had to get to a place where I had to relinquish my hold on so many of the things I felt personally responsible for, because I’m mom, I’m wife … it became my personal commitment to see how many balls I could drop.” – Susan Seay
