Ep. 18 – How to Break Bad News to Your Child

When it comes to telling bad news to your child, there are two types of parents: there are those who just say what they have to say and go on with their lives, and there's you.

If you're here, you probably wonder what to do when you have to break bad news to your child. And you wonder that because you care about your child's emotions and want this experience to be significant and as non-traumatic as possible.

Well, I got you covered. In this episode, you'll learn how to use The Parenting MAP to guide your way in that conversation.
