It can be incredibly helpful to make plans ahead of time for handling situations that usually don’t go well.

And when we’re making the plan, it’s a good idea to consider actions you DON’T want to take — things that you know from experience make the situation worse — as well as actions that you do want to take.

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • What a “to-don’t” list is
  • How this list creates LESS guilt
  • The power of putting items on your to-don’t list… not just when it comes to responding to your kids, but even when it comes to setting expectations for yourself and others
