In this episode, we talk with Nicole Paloma Sarro, actress and operations manager, about the challenges of being a parent in the pandemic. Nicole shares how she is showing up differently for her daughter, Paloma, during this time. We hear about how Nicole has marched to the beat of her own drum her whole life and the deep sense of self-love she has always been able to access. While she still experiences insecurity, she simply does not try to be anything other than who she is.
We touch on parenting messaging and the tough conversations Nicole has had to have with her in-laws about the way she raises her daughter. Generational parenting styles vary so much, it can be hard! Nicole wants to instill independence, open-mindedness, and free-thinking in her daughter. It is not easy helping someone navigate this world, and the way Nicole has chosen to raise her daughter is inspiring!
