    How To Raise Kids To Be Thrivers | Episode 224

    When academic metrics are so front and center in today’s culture, how do we raise a population of strong, healthy kids who are more than just grades on paper? In Episode 224, Christine talks to Dr. Michele Borba about her new book, Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine. Christine and Michele talk about the cultural obsession with striving, the key character strengths that will help kids become thrivers, why examining core assets and addressing “attention robbers” matters, and how and where overwhelmed parents can get started on the journey to raise kids who will thrive.

Love the smart and thoughtful conversations!

During the pandemic, to relieve stress and take time for myself, I try to take walks around the neighborhood and listen to podcasts. Edit Your Life is one of my go to podcasts! I love all the thoughtful and honest conversations on a diverse array of topics. I truly love that Christine and Asha are vulnerable and open with their listeners. I always love when I see a new episode has dropped. Thank you for helping me get through this crazy time!!

“Ya know”

I think the content could be really great, but I had to stop listening on my very first attempt after the host kept saying “ya know” every fourth word and it started driving me nuts.

New year, new podcast

I discovered this podcast as I closed out 2020 and found myself longing for the company of other women (professionals and parents) wrestling with the same practical and existential questions I am wrestling with - ever more so during the pandemic. I have been binge-listening and appreciate Asha and Christine’s calming approach to so many of life’s challenges - all of which occupy so much headspace in the best of times, but especially almost a year into quarantine. I recommend this to anyone trying to find some grounding and good company; this feels like the best chats over coffee-warm, friendly, helpful and reassuring.
