How do we raise good kids? How do we make sure they don’t turn into sh*tty adults?

This isn’t just another parenting podcast. It’s a quasi-manual for how to raise better humans. Join the Good Kids community from your phone at https://flick.group/goodkids

JoAnna García Swisher (Sweet Magnolias) is a mother, actor, and founder of The Happy Place, a website dedicated to design and self-care. Her philosophy of “creating and celebrating the spaces, places, and moments that bring the greatest joy” has actually helped her navigate the difficult moments of her life, most recently the loss of her father, with whom she was incredibly close. This profound loss was a primer for the world we’re living in today, as we all learn to cope with feeling utterly out of control, providing as stable an environment as we can for our children, and trying our best to have faith that there will be a new story to write on the other side.  You can follow JoAnna García Swisher on Instagram and Twitter and at The Happy Place.
