Episode 017. Mean Girls: A Heartfelt Conversation with Lisa McCrohan

Episode 017

Let me start off by saying this interview did NOT go in the direction I thought it would. Lisa blew my mind with her insights and loving suggestions. She is a true healer and helper and I could not be more excited to share her with you!

Back in 2014, Lisa had a blog post go viral: Raising Girls Who Are Includers Instead of Mean Girls. You’ve probably read it…it is still making the rounds on social media over 5 years later. Why? Because it’s an important topic that hits home for many of us.

In this episode, Lisa and I dive deep and discuss:

  • What sparked Lisa to write this viral blog post
  • Our own personal journeys with bullying
  • How to parent through tough “mean kid” situations
  • Parenting when we feel triggered from our own past hurts
  • How not to raise mean kids
  • How not to be “mean moms” ourselves
  • How to raise kids who are includers
  • Specifics on how to be an includer & what each of her suggestions look like:
    • We hold
    • We include
    • We love
    • We empower
    • We regard
    • We model how to treat others

Lisa holds nothing back in this episode! I knew this interview was going to be good, but Lisa took it to a whole new level just for us. She is passionate about compassion and it shines through big time! Tune in and prepare to have your mind (& heart!) blown in the best way possible!
