When we need the validation of our spouse, we severely limit our ability to be collaborative partners and parents.

Growth and collaboration require a willingness to set our egos aside enough to consider differing perspectives and uncomfortable truths about ourselves. When our ego runs the show, we care more about proving we are right than working together to find a shared solution. 

In this NEW conversation with Crystal of The Parenting Coach Podcast, Dr. Finlayson-Fife discusses how we can create healthier, more collaborative partnerships even when our partner is not invested in creating positive change.

Listen to the full episode to learn more about:

* Resentment and what it can teach us
* The power of gratitude

* Navigating disagreements with wisdom and maturity 

*The problem with validation seeking
* Improving relationships unilaterally
* How to talk to children about sexuality / pornography
