We are hardest on ourselves. This is true of our children and this is true of us as parents. We are often caught in cycles of confusion for fear of making the “wrong” decision. We overthink many decisions without taking a step back to look at the big picture. We don’t take the time to connect these decisions to our end goal in raising kids. We easily beat ourselves up when things go wrong and we sometimes carry more of the burden than we should. Today’s episode explores strategies for moving from the toxic and unproductive space of fear, confusion, guilt and shame to parenting from a space of clarity, calm and compassion for self.
