Jun 23, 2023

Listeners Dan and Clay emailed me similar questions regarding “roadblocks” in the choice-giving process. In this episode, I discuss the following topics:

– The purpose behind why we give choices
– Hindrances to the choice-giving process (congruence, choices given only in negative situations, understanding the “why”)
– Kids need opportunities to practice receiving choices
