If you’ve listened before, you’ll notice something different about today’s episode. Over the past four months, I’ve been doing a radio segment called Mental Health Monday for Magic 104.1 in Oklahoma City. We’ve covered a wide range of topics from how empathic listening can help our kids manage anxiety to setting healthy boundaries with our kids while we work from home. You can text any questions you’d like me to answer in upcoming segments to 405-460-5104!
