Yet, if we’ve been successful as parents, we raised not only kids we genuinely like, but kids who like us as much. Connected by so much more than just Verizon and Netflix accounts, we give our kids wings to fly, but roots to find their way home. In a funny, poignantly-worded podcast, Laura talks about Roots & Wings, the misnomer of empty nesting in the modern age. Listen Here!
