Let’s keep it real – we all get triggered at times by our kids. We experience big, angry emotions that result in us losing our cool and creating more drama for ourselves. You might try to stuff them down or make them go away, or even pretend they don’t exist, but this doesn’t help on your peaceful parenting journey.
Being a peaceful parent doesn’t mean that you don’t experience strong emotions like anger, frustration, resentment, or fear. Instead, a peaceful parent takes ownership of their feelings and works hard not to displace or project them onto their child.
In this episode, I’m sharing the magic with you and giving you my go-to repeatable process to help you stop reacting negatively to your kids’ behavior or storming. Nobody gets it right all the time, but these 3 steps I’m sharing with you will help you keep your cool while parenting and make your parenting experience a whole lot easier.
