A listener shares how her husband has her back – he tells the kids that he loves them, but he loves their mom the most. We also discuss how negative behavior from your children is a method of communication – instead of yelling or punishing, consider asking questions and offering some attention. This will offer your child what he needs, and you may feel less frustrated. Do you have a short story of how your partner has your back? Share it with us!

Todd talks about managing his grief after the loss of his mom, and we discuss a listener question about how to talk to a spouse about authoritarian parenting. It takes compassion and kindness, but it can be done!
