One of the challenges of parenthood is raising an emotionally healthy child. Life is busy and full of obstacles, and teaching our children to navigate the difficulties they’ll encounter in life is paramount. On today’s Heart Filled Holidays show, Sandy Fowler interviews two experts to get tips for parenting: Dr. Deborah Gilboa, known as Dr. G., shares insights and strategies for raising resilient kids. She’ll give you insights paired with actionable tools to shape your children. Jude Bijou is a licensed marriage and family therapist whose award-winning book, Attitude Reconstruction, shows you how to deal with the emotions of life. Today she’s applying her knowledge to tantrums to help you understand what’s happening and how you can handle them in a healthy way.
In addition to the great tips from these experts, Sandy is sharing insights from Marie Fleming about where people go wrong when changing things around to bring more joy into their life. Sandy will also share some fabulous questions to use to not only spark conversation at the family dinner table, but to encourage discussions that build our children up and encourage them to be the best people they can be.
In Christmas Corner Sandy is sharing her family’s holiday secrets. She’s talking about their tradition of making gifts and giving ideas for making gifts of your own.

Jude Bijou is a licensed marriage and family therapist (MFT), an educator in Santa Barbara, CA, and multi-award winning author of Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life (Riviera Press, 2011).
Earning a BA in psychology from Reed College and a master’s in psychology from Carleton University, she became a marriage and family therapist. Success was attained, yet something was still missing. Looking eastward, she immersed herself in the world of meditation and Vedic philosophy. The result: an integrated, truly holistic approach to therapy and for living a fulfilling life.
The culmination of Jude’s groundbreaking work can now be found in Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life. These simple and effective principles have impacted countless clients, seminar participants and students.
