#276: Problem Solved

Why is it so hard to find lyrically appropriate music for kids that has beats they actually like? How can I navigate a relationship with a suicidal friend? How can I help my kiddo struggle well through a huge disappointment? Help me through the intense energy shift (which is just a nice phrase for total meltdown) at certain times of day.

We solve these and so many more listener problems in this episode. We couldn’t get to all of them, but there were so many relatable ones! We decided we want to bring this segment back every month and start bringing on experts to help us solve them.
