Episode Summary

We're back after vacation and jump right into some thoughts on the need to build kids' resilience and maybe not get therapy for everything, and how most of the time in life, we think we're not doing well. We throw in some Anne of Green Gables and the importance of imagination, some gross mice stories and a lot of discussion about the power of breathing and being alone with our thoughts. You'll be rewarded and enjoy yourself!
