In her new book "The Good News About Bad Behavior," author and journalist Katherine Reynolds Lewis argues that we need to be better investigators and communicators within our own families in order to understand how to prevent conflicts.
Among other things, we discuss the essential elements of connecting with your kids in a healthy way, why building consensus-driven routines and rules is important, social media use (and overuse) -- and why you should consider apologizing to your kids for bossing them around (yes, really!)
If you're tired of confrontations and power struggles with your toddler or teen, you need to tune in to this podcast and/or to explore Katherine's book: https://amzn.to/2tz0GlH
