Jennifer Kolari – Principles and Frameworks For Great Parenting



Whether you’re a parent or are thinking about becoming a parent this episode is a MUST. We talked a lot about the difference in the way we interact with our babies verses when children start to acquire language. Also, how we move from responding and being in tune with our babies to reacting to our toddlers and children. For any parent or to-be parent, get a huge download on how to handle triggers from our children, how to effectively talk with teenagers, and a magic framework called the CALM Technique.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
