When our children do (often age-appropriate!) things that drive us up the wall, our instinctive reaction is often to MAKE IT STOP! But the real reason we feel triggered by our child's behavior is not the thing they're doing; it's because of trauma we've experienced ourselves. In this episode we'll learn how we can understand and heal from that trauma, so we can show up in relationships with our children in a way that's aligned with our values.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why we have such a hard time when our children misbehave.
  • Some of the most common ways that overwhelmed parents react to their children’s behavior.
  • How intergenerational trauma affects our relationships with our children.
  • Tools you can use to respond to your child’s behavior, instead of reacting.
  • How to repair a relationship with your child after you’ve reacted in a way that isn’t aligned with your values.
