Podcast Episode 105: Less Stress, More Laughter—How to Change the Atmosphere in Your Home

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 105 of The New Family Podcast where we talk about how to change the atmosphere in your family home so there’s less stress and more laughter.

I’m delighted to be joined on the show today by Kaeli Van Regan. Kaeli is former child and youth worker, a mom of three, a podcaster and the author of a new book called Parenting Your Way: From Tough Love to Enough Love. She and I are chat about improving the mood and atmosphere in our households and the shift she made with her family to set a happier tone.

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

Book Kaeli recommended: Energy Medicine: Balancing Your Body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality by Donna Eden

Kaeli’s favourite parenting advice:
“When I was writing the book I got to interview 27 different experts in the field and the piece that really stuck with me, and actually came from many different sources, was for parents to really love themselves, to care for themselves and to really accept themselves. Taking the time, some minutes during the day to really focus on yourself.”
