    Episode 66: Hitting and biting part 2

    Episode 66: Hitting and biting part 2

    Our first hitting and biting podcast was cut short at the end, so we decided to come back and create this one! In it, we talk about:

    Why and how Aware Parenting is so different to behaviourism;
    How our core beliefs about human beings affects our response to hitting;
    The cause of hitting and biting;
    How we can offer Loving Limits in response to hitting;
    How we can move in with attachment play in response to hitting;
    How we can prevent hitting from happening in the first place;
    Our own invitation to do our own inner work so we’re more likely to be able to respond in these ways;
    The importance of self-compassion.

This podcast was the catalyst for my parenting transformation

I cannot begin to express my gratitude for how this podcast has been the catalyst for transforming my parenting. Marion and Lael have a way of speaking Truth in such a way that it just begins to permeate the guilt and stories we tell ourselves as parents. I recommend this podcast to EVERY mother I know!
