Any book recommendations for parenting an extremely stubborn child? My 4.5 yo middle is giving us such a hard time lately. It varies what sets him off, but one example is: I ask him and big sis to get pajamas on before movie night. Often they come out ready 2 min later but sometimes randomly he’ll say he can’t do it, demand my help, and (when I gently insist he needs to try first) will get so upset that it essentially ruins his evening. he’s otherwise kind, thoughtful, smart, and loving.

Any podcasts, book recommendations on diplomacy strategies at work? My mindset is not very political, so cannot see offense coming to me when someone is crossing me over or sidelining me. Also I don’t like being nosy or overstepping but have definitely being on the receiving end. Tired of people who just keep mansplaining, interrupting thinking they are the smartest! I am a polite person, or at least I think I try to be respectful of all. But at the same time I don’t want to be playing victim.
