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 Christine talk about how to find peace in the midst of family struggles. They 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. They also give you permission to leave unhelpful advice by the side of the road and give you a script for how to respond.
