Authors and counselors Josh and Christi Straub explain how to help children identify and name what’s going on in their hearts. They explain the importance of learning to name what you’re feeling. Together they explain what it means to be emotionally safe and how it is the hallmark of an emotionally healthy home.

When she and Josh aren’t working together, they spend time on the lake, train their disobedient puppy, and watch their kids crush karaoke on a stage built in their dining room.
