In this interview, we covered some topics from her book that have not been discussed much or at all in the podcast – lying and shyness. Bridgett explained that lying in a young child before the age of 5 is completely developmentally normal and expected. She also mentioned that shyness is an instinct. We are all born with shyness and the reason that we are is because its supposed to keep us safe by keeping us close to the people who are close to us and have our best interest at heart. These and more key takeaways so please tune in!
