Becoming the Parent You Wish You Had | Margaux Bergen
We're going WAY BACK to the summer of 2016 (!!!) and sharing one of my favorite conversations. I've never met Margaux IRL but revisiting to this episode feels like I'm catching up with an old friend. "Born in Paris and raised in London, educated at Edinburgh University and living in Washington D.C., Margaux Bergen is the mother of three Millennials.” We use Bergen's fabulous memoir/advice book: Navigating Life: Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me (Penguin Press, August 2016) as a jumping off point to talk about respectful parenting, getting back into the workforce after being a stay at home mom, the difference between solitude and loneliness, and how we can create a meaningful life. x Ellie Knaus
