Talking with returning champion KJ Dell’Antonia
is always a pleasure, and this episode is maybe my favorite conversation with her yet!
KJ has got a book coming out later this month, and if you’re feeling the pressures of parenting, you are going to LOVE her book, How to be a Happier Parent.
Like so many of my favorite conversations, this one zooms around and goes in directions that I didn’t envision when we sat down to talk.
And every direction offers something valuable for you to take into your parenting life.
We talk about:
- Why parents need something of their own – something separate from your kids – to enjoy
- How (and why) after-school activities and sports got so crazy
- KJ’s two key steps to handling the big, bad pressures on us parents.

And thank you so much for listening!
