Description

We are honored and so thankful to introduce you to Mike Mestas - a dad and family counsellor who recently graduated from MSU and started work building a program to engage and meet with local military families. Through his reflection on his own upbringing, experience raising his own kids, and family counselling education Mike brings incredible perspective and insight into how we can better emotionally engage with kids and help develop their communication skills in a positive environment. Drawing upon recommendations in John Gottman's "How to Raise an Emotionally Intelligent Child" (an excellent read if you're interested!), Mike shares some incredible insights and thoughts.

Over this extended duration we cover a gamut of topics - raising kids, helicopter parenting and emotion coaching. Join us on this journey as we figure out better ways to engage with kids (and other adults!) and come to terms with our own limitations as parents.

Have questions or recommendations for us? Feel free to send questions & feedback to jenny@save-the-parents.com and we'll pass them along accordingly. Thank you for listening!
