My Friend Is Sick…What Do I Do?: The Home Hour, Episode 121

On today’s episode we’re talking about the gracious art of caring for those we know and love…and specifically, how to do it when they’re sick. Join hosts Kirsten and Graham as we chat about how to be the perfect source of support, caregiving, and encouragement with guest Lee Cordon from the fantastic etiquette blog: Do-Say-Give.

This episode is packed with useful ideas and guidelines to help navigate what can be challenging situations.  We’ll discuss what to say and what not to say, gifts for children in the hospital, how to truly make life easier for our friends and family, and ways to perk up those hard working hospital employees!

Plus no in-app purchases and no dangerous adult material your kids might accidentally wander into.
