Do you wish your child were more helpful around the house? I do! In this episode, I talk to Michaeleen Doucleff, author of Hunt, Gather, Parent about the secrets that indigenous cultures can teach us about how to raise helpful children. She talks about her travels and how in western cultures have been teaching parents a really hard way to parent, generating conflict between themselves and their children.
