One of the best things we can do as parents is recognize the traits we need to repair in ourselves, so we don't unintentionally pass them on to our kids. If you grew up defining who you are based on other people's reactions, it can be hard to tune in to your own wants and needs. But it's never too late to change these patterns. In this episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents with codependent tendencies working to show up differently for their children. She offers multiple strategies for rewiring your own codependence, while raising kids with a strong sense of self.
(2:10-2:48): Unintentionally fostering codependency
(9:11-10:33): Separating your feelings from your child's
(16:58-17:34): Establishing boundaries with parents
(22:37-23:38): Tying it all together
