This episode topic comes from a Green Popsicle Stick (Private) Group Facebook member. Once again, when I sat down to organize and script this out, I had no idea that I had so many thoughts on the subject. Too funny.
Katie asked, “What skills are you glad you taught your daughter before she went off to college? And, is there anything you wished you’d spent more time on with her?”
These are fantastic questions from Katie, whose daughter is already ahead of the game, as you will hear in this episode.
