It’s hard to see your kid struggling. During times of family stress, self-care becomes even more elusive than ever, even though it’s that much more more important. In Episode 153, Asha and I talk about how to find peace in the midst of family struggles. We offer compassionate, realistic advice that parents can put to work right now, and provide big-picture perspective shifts and practical in-the-moment strategies that come from a place of empathy. We also give you permission to leave unhelpful advice by the side of the road and give you a script for how to respond.
