Episode 25: Bracha Goetz – Helping Children Integrate Happiness Skills

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to parenting isn’t a lack of good intentions, it’s lacking the resources or know-how to address complex topics with children.

My guest today is Bracha Goetz. She is the Harvard-educated author of over 40 books that help children’s souls shine and a candid memoir for adults about joyfully overcoming food addictions.

In this episode, we’ll discuss:

  • How Bracha’s books teach kids about eating healthier
  • What challenges parents face when discussing complex topics with their children
  • Aligning with abundance and doing things joyfully
  • And much more!

Thanks for listening to the Humanitarian Entrepreneur podcast! If there’s someone that you know who is a new parent, is unsure how to approach complex topics with their kids, or is simply looking for a good book to read with their children, please share this episode with them.

Together, we’ll take a bite-sized chunk out of the status quo and make the world a better and healthier place for our children. Thanks for joining us on this adventure, and enjoy my conversation with Bracha!
