Thrive Parenting

By Erik & Michelle Lehnardt

Hey, it's hard to be the parent of a teen. We help you reclaim your time, energy, confidence and health so you can feel your best. Each week we bring you tools and techniques to feel happier while raising strong, confident teens with fewer rules and more laughter. We're Erik and Michelle Lehnardt and we've taken a deep dive into positive psychology, life coaching and brain science to bring you better, easier ways to raise great teens. We don't claim to be perfect (in fact, if you want to tell us something we've done wrong, we'll say, "You're probably right.") but we have 28 years of parenting experience and we can save you from so many missteps and mistakes. Looking to feel amazing while creating a joyful home and raise kind, strong, self-sufficient kids? Keep listening.
