“When You Know Better, You Do Better” with Brandie Hadfield (#76)
Show Notes

Today Melanie is joined by Brandie Hadfield, a Certified Attachment Parenting Educator and Certified Family Health Coach. She is a mother to two boys and a new ScreenStrong Ambassador who shares her story of how she changed her family’s lifestyle and began parenting without screens.

Brandie and her family are six months into their ScreenStrong journey with a very clear “before” and “after.” She shares how self-judgement colored her ability to create effective limits with her kids, which is a common struggle for parents wanting to do the “right thing” for their children. Brandie introduced the concept of a 30-day screen break to her family, using a team approach to making changes in her family’s habits. She shares how this screen break led her to the ScreenStrong community, giving her the opportunity to be more informed and educated in how screen exposure was affecting her children’s development. 

Brandie is passionate and joyful about sharing her family’s achievements by choosing real life over a virtual, disconnected world. This episode is encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring. You will want to share this one with a friend.
