  2. We’ll discuss the Life Coach School model for solving any problem (be sure to download the cheatsheet for more info).
  3. Next, we’ll dive into some fascinating studies about the power of our thoughts from Dr. Alia Crum. You can find more of her studies in the Stanford Review, and her TedX Talk, Change Your Mindset, Change the Game.
  4. Parents worry about their kids. It’s what we do. But it’s time to go on a worry free diet. We’ll give you some ideas, but we’re going to need a full episode just about worry.
  5. You’ll find out how good parenting resembles to job of a river guide. Rapids don’t scare you!

Next time we’ll talk about Communicating With Your Teen: Listening, Talking and Criticism.

p.s. here’s a little inspiration for your worry-free diet:

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”
– Leo F. Buscaglia

“Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.”
– Arthur Somers Roche

“If you treat every situation as a life and death matter, you’ll die a lot of times.”
– Dean Smith

“Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere”
– Erma Bombeck

“There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.”
– Harold Stephen

“Rule number one is, don’t sweat the small stuff. Rule number two is, it’s all small stuff.”– Robert Eliot
