Ep. 14 – What to Do with a Stubborn Child (Dear Apparently Parent #2)

Welcome to the second session of Dear Apparently Parent, the Q&A sessions in The Apparently Parent Podcast. As always, I answer one question that was sent to me by one of you guys. In today's session, I'll answer the following question:

My 4yo is super stubborn (I can only blame myself, she got it from me), so she keeps insisting on things and keeps getting disappointed. I want to help her cope better with both her passion and her disappointment.

Such a great question! I'm sure you can relate to that. So listen to the episode and let me know in comments what you think.
