In this week’s episode I talk about why parenting is so hard in this modern culture we live in and the three biggest reasons why I believe we get angry and lose it with our kids.
When we are feeling calm, patient and well-resourced, when all our needs are taken care of, when we have no worries, we have no stresses, at those times parenting is easy.
We know how to be loving, kind, respectful and patient towards our kids.
We can take the time to listen to them. We can see things from their side. We can be deeply empathic of their experience - and of course when we are in that place, parenting goes really well.
