Episode 259

Most of us want to be around positive people, but often kids with big emotions aren’t positive. And when they complain about homework…or cleaning…or their siblings, our first instinct is to try to get them to STOP. But trying to get them to stop isn’t often effective.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why logic doesn’t work when it comes to kids’ complaints
  • How to shift our mindset to see complaining as a good thing (really!)
  • What happens when we listen to complaints with an open mind
