I can’t name one parent I’ve talked to, that doesn’t feel the weight of all the things once they have kids! I also don’t know any parents that wish their kids would help out LESS! HA!! I’m excited to introduce you to my guest, parenting expert, JoAnn Crohn, who has cracked the cooperation code and is showing us how to get our kids to help out more!

I know you are going to love her as much as I do! JoAnn uses a super slick system called H. A. P. P. Y. - see what she did there!? ;) Using this acronym, she walks parents through how to communicate with your family so they’ll take on more and you’ll feel supported!

We also talk about her book, “Me and My Friends - a kids guide to making and being friends”. She talks about strategies kids can use to hone their social skills.
