Show Notes

In this episode, I'm talking with Lindsay Short of Simply Sustainable Parenting. Lindsay and I cover a variety of topics, but the meat of the episode is focused on something I think many of us struggle with - setting boundaries. 


Here are the questions we answer and topics covered:

  • Lindsay’s definition of sustainability (and how it’s different than the traditional meaning)
  • How mindfulness and mental health play into the sustainability movement
  • How we can incorporate mindfulness, mental health, and sustainability into our family
  • How to create a family mission statement (and what it is)
  • How we can set boundaries for ourselves
  • How we can set boundaries for our kids 
  • How we can teach our kids to set boundaries for themselves 
  • How to address pushback from others in regards to boundaries 
  • What a simple playroom is and how to maintain it
  • Some benefits of having fewer toys for kids
