RAD Parenting Podcast

Dec 22, 2022

Christmas is just days away, and if you’re like many of the parents I’ve worked with, you may just be ready to get it done and over with. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and really over this time of year, one of the best things you can do is to take care of yourself. Take things one step at a time, and try to have fun along the way (I know that may be easier said than done though).


In this episode, I’m sharing simple advice for you to help your RAD children during Christmas with all of their emotions, as well as how you can empower them, no matter what they’ve been through. I also want to stress the importance of self-care during this time of year. It’s more than okay to step away, take some time for yourself, and refill your love tank!
