Overcoming childhood anxiety

One in five children has a diagnosable mental disorder; one in eight experiences clinical levels of anxiety. Amidst these extremes, every family will deal with some level of childhood anxiety, whether it’s back to school nerves, everyday school pressures, or worries about changes at home.

In her book Generation Stressed: Play-Based Tools to Help Your Child Overcome Anxiety, Michelle Kambolis uses an original, new combination of theory and practical, play-based activity to help this ‘generation stressed.’ which translates Cognitive Behavioural Therapy into fun, playtime exercises that can be practiced by parents with their children.

Marriage lessons & Conscious Uncoupling

Kelly Flannigan Bos knows that relationships – marital or otherwise – can be hard work, and nurturing them often takes a back seat to life’s other demands. The value in her practice comes from her skill at offering concrete tips and techniques for dealing with relationship issues.

Kelly is a psychotherapist focusing on individual, marriage, and family relationships. She is a well-known Canadian relationship expert, and has appeared in a professional capacity in countless media markets as a guest and writer.

Kelly joins me to discuss her top 24 marriage lessons every couple should learn. Plus, we’ll discuss “consciously uncoupling” and why that’s different than divorce.
