Here’s the article about patience that Rachel referred to.

Patience is a willingness to suffer. 

Check out the book Atomic Habits by James Clear.

Listen to Rachel’s podcast that BP mentioned: “Helping Your Teen Live a Better Story.”

Three takeaways from Rachel and the places we can work on patience with our kids:

  1. When we’re tempted to yell.
  2. When we’re tempted to give them a screen.
  3. When we’re tempted to not give them chores.
