Eps 299: SOLO Show- Tips on Validation

Episode 299

This week’s show is a solo show with your host, Casey O’Roarty.

This week I am talking about validation. What does it looks like to validate your teens and tweens in conversation? How do we truly listen to them and ask for what they need? How can we be mindful of our reactions, both verbally and non-verbally.

Community is everything!
