Episode 67: Scott Schimmel on When Bad Things Happen to Good Parents

Bad things happen to good parents- maybe there's a conflict, a kid who forgets their homework, your kid is getting picked on by friends, or doesn't make the team that they were dreaming of. We call these things The Parent Challenge. When they happen, often the first thing that happens is that we as parents get disoriented- you can't think clearly, and you're having a big emotional reaction, and it can happen in an instant. What do you do with that?
