Episode 197: Finding Middle Ground in Parenting

Raising humans involves countless decisions and details, and the decision making can be colored by many things—personality, anxiety, personal baggage, and more.

This episode was inspired by Christine and Jon’s speaking engagement at Dad 2.0 Summit in late February and recorded right before COVID-19 shut everything down, so the pandemic does not factor into the conversation but the issues—origins of parental pressure, expectations and baggage, emotional tolerance, striking a balance between what you need and what you can let go, and coping with the changing stressors—will ring true now and beyond. + + + + + Edit Your Life shares practical ideas for decluttering your home, schedule, and mental space without getting bogged down by perfection.
