Listen for practical tips, skills, and real-life scenarios on how we can help ourselves, and our kids, move away from anxiety.

    Linds- Kind, but not nice

    Linds- Kind, but not nice

    The delicate balance when raising kids. Teaching them to be kind, but not a doormat. In this episode Lindsay shares how she has been digging into her own “people pleasing” tendencies and the programming we’ve all placed upon ourselves to “be nice”. You know, nice like being afraid to rock the boat or make someone uncomfortable. Being afraid to inconvenience anyone. She talks about how to help raise your kids to promote kindness and prevent people please. Post Malone examples galore.

This is gold

Some of the best tips I have received! Love how real and helpful all the things they share are. I started listening to get help with dealing with my children’s regulation and ended up using the majority of the tools for myself 😂
