What goes wrong with reality TV families?

What do John and Kate, Hulk Hogan and The Real Housewives all have in common? Their shows have become synonymous with divorce, infidelity and addiction. What goes wrong? Why are families still signing up for this opportunity when the outcome is seemingly inevitable? What affect does all of this have on the kids? Dr. Wade has insight and answers with the four things we can all do to strengthen our families and our finances. When we learn better, we can do better!

  1. Create a daily "landing time." This could be a meal or just a gathering to discuss your day or the week ahead. Since everything is energy, when people come together they gather strength from each other.

  2. Keep growing. Always keep your family engaged with books, games or films that convey positive messages of love, courage, empathy, etc.

  3. Create a family fun night every week. There is nothing like gathering with loved ones for the sole purpose of having fun! This strengthens bonds and releases tension.

  4. Create an uplifting practice. This could be engaging in a spiritual belief together of simply recognizing the things for which you are all thankful.
