Simplifying Family Life—and Taming Tantrums, too

Now back to what this interview is all about. Originally a high school teacher, Andrea decided to change careers and become a family therapist because she was fascinated by the dynamic between her students and their parents. But when she became a mom herself she realized she had lots to learn about getting through some of those long days with little kids, and some massive lifestyle changes to make to get the family life they wanted. Today Andrea is a respected voice among parenting educators, an author, a blogger and woman behind a new app called Taming Tantrums: Parenting solutions to reduce toddler freak outs. Andrea drops some incredible value bombs about helping our kids manage those big emotions at any age from toddler to teen.

Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Andrea.
