26: How Gentle & Compassionate Parenting Leads To Gentle & Compassionate Adults with Jami Nato

What do you want your kids to say about your parenting? What legacy do you want to leave behind? Parenting can be a beautiful journey that leaves a lasting impact on generations. Parenting is also challenging and requires you to be courageous enough to dig deep, ask questions, and have those hard conversations at every stage of the journey. But if you approach parenting humanly and with compassion, you can create empathetic, generous humans that will change the world.

In today’s episode, I am talking with Jami Nato, mama of 4, wife, and serial entrepreneur whose light shines bright with her humor and wisdom. Jami and I are chatting all about parenthood and how to approach it with more gentleness, more grace, and more self-awareness so that we raise a new generation of compassionate humans.

During our conversation, Jami gives insight on the different seasons of parenthood, how to let go of parental shame, why radical honesty is so important as we raise empathetic children, the benefits of gentle parenting, plus the number one best thing you can do as a parent.
