We all want that one manual for parenting teens but where is it? What do we do when we find out our teen has been drinking, using drugs, or vaping? For parents, this can be triggering and scary! Our goal is to learn to parent from a healthy place, and that’s when we learn to parent from our Adult Chair. This means we stay present, we respond vs react, we set healthy boundaries and have honest (and sometimes tough) conversations with our kids to keep them safe through their teen years. In this conversation with Dr. James Wellborn, we gain some new and valuable tools on how to parent from a healthy place while our teens test, push boundaries, and experiment, from high school and into a healthy adulthood.

Today, we’re talking about your breath. Yes, we all breathe, but how often do you think about the way your breathing impacts your emotional well being or your physical health or your ability to respond to stress and anxiety? Our guest says the answer is not enough.
Happy July everybody! We’re taking the month off with new shows but we have some good stuff to share on the podcast even while we’re on vacation!

But of course, that’s the danger here: many people are unaware that they are black and white thinkers.

Clint from Cape Town, South Africa writes in with a comment and question we wanted to face head on this week. It’s a terrific question and one we’ve all faced at some time or another in our lives. He writes: “I have really always struggled with authority figures and powerful personalities — can you help me sit in the adult chair during meetings with these types of people?”
