If you’re a working mom, you may have gotten this question before. And you might frame your answer based on the financial benefits of your job (“I work so I can buy you clothes” or “so you can go to camp”) since it’s direct and easy to understand. But is there more we can teach our children in these moments about what it means to work?

In this episode, you’ll find out how to talk to your kids about work in a way that makes them excited to pick a career they love and determine where they can make an impact.

Show highlights include:

  • The real question behind “why do you work?”–and how to answer it. (2:29)
  • If you can answer this question about your work, your kids’ eyes will light up when you tell them about it. (8:14)
  • Even if you’re not passionate about your work, here’s a great perspective on work to share with your kids. (11:26)
  • If you’re not satisfied in your job (not even with the money), here’s how “divine compensation” can help you out of the slump. (15:40)
