An interview with Kathrynne | Money Saving Mom® : Money Saving Mom®

Last week, while the kids were off of school because of the ice and snow, Jesse and I sat down and interviewed Kathrynne, our 16-year-old.

She answered some of your questions that you’d submitted on topics like:

  • how parents can build stronger relationships with their teens
  • why she feels like she can trust us
  • her honest thoughts on kids and social media
  • how she feels most heard and understood (and what makes her feel like we’re not listening/paying attention)
  • what learning to drive has been like, and more!
