As parenting seems harder and more depleting these days, it’s easy to focus on the things that we’re doing wrong.

We may worry that we’re letting our kids spend too much time on screens… or that we’re not supporting them in the “right” way.

Unfortunately, focusing on what we’re doing wrong doesn’t change anything… and it wastes precious energy. Instead, focusing on our strengths actually saves energy AND improves our relationship with our children.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why we are programmed to notice what we’re doing wrong
  • How using your strengths addresses an unnecessary energy drain
  • How to identify your strengths (even if you’re not sure right now what they are!) and turn them into simple, concrete action steps that can help you feel less exhausted and less guilty.
