Learn to wait patiently is a life skill we all need to work on, but man, is it hard to teach to our kids! Today Karen and Sunny offer tips for helping your toddler wait at the doctor's office and practice patience when you're having an adult conversation as well as tips for teaching your teen to wait for a phone, or to begin dating.
As Karen says, it's always going to be easier to give in, but consistency will pay off in the long run as you work diligently to teach these skills!
Conflict is inevitable! As Sunny says, this is one of those episodes that applies to every family. Today, Karen tackles your questions about sibling conflict, a neighborhood cold war, toddlers who bite, and an only child who struggles to cope when she doesn't get her way.
