Support Networks

In this podcast, Todd and Julie Fisher discuss the importance of support networks in relation to emotional well-being. When we have strong support networks, we are 25% more likely to be happy than when we don’t have people close to us that we can lean on. Todd and Julie discuss why kids need multiple support networks, what they look like for kids, why parents are only one piece of the puzzle, and how parents can help their kids find people in their lives that will support them and be there for them when they need a shoulder to lean on.
