Steph interviews Joe De Sena and Dr. Lara Pence to define what resilience for families means and why it’s such an important skill to build in little ones from a young age. Joe De Sena is the founder and CEO of Spartan and the Death Race, the world’s leading endurance sports and wellness brand. Dr. Lara Pence is a clinical psychologist and Chief Mind Doc at Spartan who helps individuals build self-mastery and mental resilience through daily exercises and challenges. Together, they walk us through ways we may be unintentionally ‘overparenting’, why we get so caught up in preventing discomfort in our kids, and how to approach parenting in a way that builds confident, self-reliant children and avoid the pitfall of teaching helplessness.
