We Don’t Have To Be Friends | Kansas City MomCast Episode 60

Adult friendship can be tricky. Today we visit with therapist Laura Probasco-Johnson, co-creator of New Strong, to discuss what friendship looks like as moms in the seasons we are in. What does a good friend look like in adulthood? Do you have to be friends with your kids’ friends’ moms? How do we protect our emotional? If a friendship isn’t working, how do we break up? All of these questions and more are answered in today’s episode.
