The Goal of a Healthy Family & 6 Roles We Take On In Dysfunction

Episode Notes

It's hard to lead a family. It's even harder when you didn't experience health in your own family as a child. Today, I'm walking you through what a healthy family looks like and what happens when it gets out of balance.

This is a practical, non-shaming guide to identifying what's working in your family and how to course-correct when it's not!

Here's what we cover:

1. The goal of a healthy family (5:19)

2. Signs of dysfunction vs. signs of health (8:07)

3. 6 extreme roles children get pushed into (19:44)

4. 4 simple, research-backed strategies to create harmony within your family (37:28)
