Choose Your Battles

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m going to share a couple of stories with you from our newest book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Advice that Changed My Life. I know I’m talking about this book a lot, but I really love it. It contains such great, actionable advice, and it is wisdom that can apply to all of us. Today’s stories, for example, are ostensibly about parenting advice, but these wise tips for better, lower-stress parenting apply to all the relationships and interactions in our lives. The first one, for example, is called “Pick Your Battles,” and it’s by our own senior editor, Barbara LoMonaco. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
