Happiness at home

I’m so grateful for the insights that I have honed into while listening and really trying to apply. I have such amazing kids, but I feel like a dictator sometimes. I have found much strength and fun as my wife and I have tried to hone our skill as parents. We are having more fun together. Positivity has increased. Love has increased.

Great Tips for Raising Teens

I really enjoy the topics they cover. They’re very applicable for a mom of teens. I just wish the host wouldn’t laugh every time she talks.
