No matter how much you love someone, there’s something very primal that happens inside of us when we feel threatened. That’s the fight, flight, or freeze response. When you’re spending all your energy trying to control your child’s emotions and actions, that probably leaves you drained, anxious, and impatient.
Imagine yourself as a solid object, like an oak tree with deep roots. How would that object react to a meltdown? Yell and scream? Probably not. That object wouldn’t take the meltdown personally. If you can be like that solid object, your child can use the support to regain their footing.
If you would like to talk about where you are, where you want to be, and how we can work together to get there, Contact Us.
