As mompreneurs, we clearly buy in on some level to the philosophy of self-reliance, independence and following your dreams. Yet, we live in a society where more than ever, our children only play with each other in highly structured, always supervised environments. Is this a good thing, or not? How can we teach our children independence, self-reliance and to instill an entrepreneurial spirit if we are controlling and orchestrating how they spend all their free time?

In tonight’s #mombizmondays chat, sponsored by Mike Lanza, author of Playborhood: Turn Your Neighborhood Into a Place for Play , we will ask some tough questions about how our parenting philosophy affects how our kids learn to take care of themselves, and how it can inhibit instilling an entrepreneurial spirit.
Grab a cuppa and a girlfriend – join us tonight at 10pm EST. This is a conversation not to be missed. The future of your children is the future of our world.
