On today’s show:

  • Are you giving really bad advice to your children without knowing it? Joe lists some of these pieces of advice. Are you stressing out about preparing your child for Harvard…at age 4?
  • Children are feeling anxious at younger and younger ages. The best way to teach your children calm, is to model it yourself. Joe highlights some extremely bad advice from a parent.
  • Shouldn’t kids always be busy? No, not always. Sometimes it is good to do nothing. Your brain is more likely to come up with brilliant ideas when you’re not focusing. Do you tell your children to play to their strengths at all times? You might be “boxing them in.” It might be good to let them make mistakes to discover what they actually can accomplish.
