Description

Welcome to the Raising Boys and Girls Podcast with Sissy Goff, David Thomas, and Melissa Trevathan. In each episode of this podcast, we’ll share some of what we’re learning in the work we do with kids and families on a daily basis at Daystar Counseling Ministries. Our goal is to help you care for the kids in your life with a little more understanding, a little more practical help, and a whole lot of hope. So pull up a chair and join us on this journey of raising boys and girls. Connect with us at raisingboysandgirls.com.


Episode Date
S5, E2: What Kids Need Right Now
1267

One of David and Sissy's favorite episodes to do quarterly is based on "What Kids Need Right Now". They talk so much about about how they are sitting with kids and families every day and hearing their hearts and hearing their struggles. And so it's important to get to talk about what they are seeing specifically. Join in on this conversation and hear the three things they are seeing the most right now with kids and learn about the practical ways we as caregivers can help them grow in these areas.
