Togetherness with Our Children, including silly walks (Podcast Episode)

I had a lovely time visiting with SDMW writer Alison Andreasen. Did you know she started (and later sold) a granola business? We chatted about the almost constant age-segregation that our culture mistakenly thinks is normal and about ways moms can enjoy their kids while fostering "togetherness" as a family.

Show Notes

Living Our Vocations, Season One, Episode 2 (Togetherness with Our Children, with Alison Andreasen)
In this episode, Anna talks to Alison Andreasen about fostering togetherness as a family by rejecting age-segregation and instead inviting our children to learn alongside us. We chat about questions like: 
1. Why invite our children to work and play with us when this makes everything take twice as long? 
2. What are ways to involve children in daily household work? What about playtime? 
3. What about the mom who likes this idea of togetherness, but is desperate for some alone time?
