Laine utilizes her passion to help parents attain excellence in their parenting – through:

>> ending cycles of generational dysfunction

Wendy and Laine both share stories, challenges and victories in their parenting journeys throughout today’s episode to remind parents that though they believe parenting is the hardest and most important job on the planet —  it doesn’t have to be so complicated! 

This conversation is for any parents who want to feel calm, confident, and connected

The three main point we cover in today’s episode are:
