With hundreds of thousands of RenegadeMothering.com readers, JANNELLE HANCHETT is a force of nature, fearless in her authentic viewpoint, her hilarious trucker mouth, and deep-rooted connection to what matters in life. This mother of 4 has had her writing featured in Brain, Child, Unworthy, and Scary Mommy, among others. For those of you in search of your own mom squad, we talk to Janelle about her viral blog: “The No-Bullshit, No-Drama Friendship Manifesto”, the unspoken understanding between best mom friends, and how to cultivate your ultimate mom support system. We also share why neither of us has chosen a definitive parenting style (or parenting team) and how whenever we think we’ve figured out something as a parent or take parenting credit (lets say for our kid sleeping well, or our pregnancy going smoothly), we end up having to make adjustments or swallow humble pie with the next kid. Most importantly, Janelle opens up about her struggle as a young alcoholic mother as revealed in her essay, “We Don’t Start with Needles in our Arms“. If you know anyone touched by addiction – and honestly, who hasn’t been? – I urge you to hear what she shares on this podcast.
Love, Ellie Knaus
