As parents, we tend to react to our child’s behavior. Sometimes an overreaction is nothing to do with the child in front of us - but more about what’s going on deep within us.
In this episode, Nicola and I discuss the importance of standing back and giving ourselves some space.
We talk about understanding what is ‘triggering’ our responses - and in fact, if there is a better way of processing our (often) highly charged emotions. Because, when we do - we are offering our children the opportunity to take our lead and learn to do the same.
As women, we have been bought up to suppress our emotions and to put our needs at the bottom go the pile.
By acknowledging our own emotional needs, we are able to unearth what’s beneath. This teaches us how to nurture the relationship that we have with ourselves and those close to us.
How magical is that?
So let’s “face the fear - and do it anyway.”

* Coping with your BIG Emotions :
Are you or your child struggling with big emotions at the minute? There’s a lot going on in our busy lives and sometimes it can be hard to process.
I have a resource that offers you tools to combat :
Breathe Through Your Big Emotions
If you are looking for support at a deeper level for your child, then please book a call with me. Invariably they might only need a couple of sessions. But if we can give our kids the tools to improve their emotional wellbeing NOW - then you’re more likely to alleviate the longer term damage to their mental health.
