Click for full show notes, exercises, and parenting scripts from this episode It seems like there’s always one teen that causes more trouble than the other. All it takes is some small comment or request and she flies into a rage!  But this doesn’t happen with her siblings - so what gives? Is something just wrong with the way her brain and body are built?  According to Dr. Robert Keith Wallace, author of Dharma Parenting: Understand Your Child's Brilliant Brain for Greater Happiness, Health, Success, and Fulfillment, maybe so. But it’s not anything “wrong”!  On this week’s episode, Dr. Wallace and I dive into the principles in his book, based on the Ayurvedic doshas, an ancient Indian practice which has since found a basis in science. It turns out, some people are literally wired differently - down in their DNA - which can make them run a bit hot or cold, or even a bit slow!  Dr. Wallace is an expert in brain-body connections and has some excellent tips on how to spot and stop triggers that may be tripping up your teen...and you! In addition to learning the three main brain-body types, you will discover:

  • How pitta, vata, and kapha teens and parents may interact

  • The power of “coaching” your teen in addition to parenting

  • The 6 Cs to mentally whip through during any argument to cool things down

  • The importance of teaching teens to make routines...and helping them shake things up when they need it! 

Dr. Wallace and I had such an interesting conversation and I’m so excited to share this episode with our subscribers and listeners!
