When I read Melissa's story on Instagram, I was crossing my fingers that she'd be willing to share it on the podcast. I'm so grateful she said yes! I am ALSO grateful for her bravery, putting her story out there. WE all make mistakes. All of us parents have made parenting mistakes, we just don't get arrested for them like Melissa did, for doing something that a lot of us have done.

As most of us would, she kept her story to herself for a while, until it all played out, and all was well. Fortunately, through her mistake, all was ok with her kids, but I know that isn't the case for everyone.

Important reminders we discussed:

  • Mistakes happen.
  • Learn from them.
  • Don't judge others.
  • Give yourself some grace.
  • Share your story.
  • Dispel shame from mistakes.

After you listen, I'd love you to share on social media!

We also love reviews on iTunes.
