Are we afraid to let our children take risks? How do we respond when they struggle? How do we handle their disappointments when things don’t go their way? We need to help children not run from hard things. We need to help them learn from their mistakes. They’ll become resilient which means they’ll have healthier mental health, be problem solvers, and won’t be afraid of using effort. Dr. Kathy’s practical techniques work!
