A Conversation about Emotional Triggers with Andy Smithson of TRU Parenting

Episode 1

It was my great honor to spend over and hour on the phone with Andy Smithson of TRU Parenting recently.  

We spent our time really digging into the way emotional triggers show up while navigating the challenges of raising kids, and Andy shared some of what he offers parents in the way of finding their calm.  Enjoy!!

“Not knowing is one of the most powerful tools and skills that we have as parents…  It keeps us curious makes us let our children guide the process…”
–  Andy Smithson
