Show Notes: 

1:18 Reinforcing positive habits in your children 

“We need to stay away from negativity because that negativity comes as energy and that energy sticks, and we end up seeing the world from a negative lens.”

6:54 Fostering a positive mindset

“Let’s get real, your kids are a copy paste of what you are. You and your husband, that’s what they see, that’s what they are.”

9:36 Devora’s journey overcoming negativity

“The steps of breakthrough are when you understand that gratitude is a must. You have to stop, every single day, and you have to sit yourself down and you have to do this. "

12:11 Talking to your children about Lashon Hara (speaking badly about others)

 “It’s crucial that first and foremost, that your children know they can talk to you about anything, you’re literally a one stop shop for anything. Now, you’re gonna navigate them just like you navigate them with screen time and sugar and all that. You’re gonna navigate them in the way they talk.”
