Under the Crush of Parental Stress - Finding Peace During Life's Toughest Challenges
December 8, 2020
Kendra Wilde describes Wild Peace as "the practice of cultivating inner calm, strength, and positive growth in the midst of challenging times."
Our conversation covers a range of ways in which parents can succumb to stress, particularly with children who have behavioral challenges. Kendra has spent over a decade researching ways to counteract the effects of chronic stress, and offers a vast array of resources and ideas that are science-based and easily incorporated into a busy life. Her passion and work come from her own experience as a mother who became nearly incapacitated by stress while raising her three children.
Wild Peace is the support Kendra wishes she had during her most challenging times. Visit wildpeace.org to find her interviews with parents who have lived through extraordinary parenting experiences, and her curated library of self-care "micro actions" you can use any time to regulate stress and enhance wellbeing. Kendra has a MBA from Harvard Business School (but she's not too serious).
