“Choose Your Battles” Doesn’t Mean “Avoid” All Battles.

Last week I heard that phrase – “choose your battles” – three times in barely half a day, and all three times it was someone being supportive of a friend who’d decided not to bang heads with her adolescent son.

Of course, I’ve used that phrase myself, and I’m not big on confrontation for its own sake, but …. here’s an audio taking that up.


Remember, you get to choose some battles, but others choose you  – and just come with being a good parent.

Good parenting is a gift to your child, and rewards you forever.  It’s been very meaningful helping parents sort these things out all these years.
