Ep 80: Interview with Nadim Saad – Part 1


My next interview was so good I’ve split it into two parts! So for the next two I am joined by the excellent Nadim Saad.

Nadim is a parenting and relationship coach and author of seven books including the highly acclaimed Kids Don’t Come With a Manual, Happy Confident Me Journal series and Raising Happy Confident Kids. Father of three and founder of The Happy Confident Company – focused on helping children become the best version of themselves. We talk parenting, how our childhood affects our parenting and the ten life skills all children needs to learn. Our conversation was so good, we had to break it up into two episodes! You are in for a huge treat.


Here are the highlights:

(03:37) The challenge of opposing parenting styles

(06:10) We lose it from time to time, and that’s ok

(09:53) Coaching a change in mindset

(13:14) The salad leaf incident
