I Wish I'd Had That As A Kid

Update: 2022-10-183


So many of us grew up wishing we had more opportunities—to learn piano, speak another language, or try gymnastics. When we have kids, all we want to do is give them everything we didn’t have. But when our kids don't take advantage of these opportunities… well, it can bring up a lot of feelings: resentment, anger, disappointment, fear. This week, Dr. Becky helps a mom reframe how to approach her son when he resists opportunities she wishes she had as a kid.
