Our Little Obsession

I share my little obsession with the new Sage Money class!


Stress Response: We cover what’s happening in our brains and bodies when we feel the stress response.

Mindfulness: We go over what mindfulness is and how it is helpful when we’re in that stress response.

Beginner’s Mind: We walk through an example of how we can hold a beginner’s mind.

Acknowledgment: We share how acknowledgment has been helpful for us.

Kindness & Empathy: She explains why she refers to empathy as the parenting superpower.

Resistance: We discuss the formula pain x resistance = suffering.

Children’s Emotions: We talk about times when we found ourselves jumping in to fix one of our kid’s problems only to discover that was not what they needed.

I-Messages: We share how I-messages help us change our thinking from changing the other to expressing our own unmet needs.

Collaboration: We offer advice for win-win problem solving. 


We answer the question of how to get grandparents to be mindful with our children.
