If you have a wild, spirited, strong willed kid, this episode is for you! 

Instead of constantly fighting with your child, what if you could learn how to harness the superpower of having a strong will?

11:20 When your kid wants to have a pop-up business 

13:50 Try this language when your child doesn't do what they are supposed to do 

17:00 How do I break generational struggles? How can I stop yelling at my kids? 

20:30 Doing things differently than how I was brought up 

24:00 When you have a strong willed kid, the degree of difficulty is so much higher 

26:00 You're living in this way that feels good - you're making a positive change 

27:30 How is your strong willed child now that she's a teenager? 

30:45 When your kids are hiding things...what if they are not trustworthy?

32:00 How has surfing helped you as a mom?
