Deana and Kira speak with Katie, an FFP struggling with balancing “it’s ok to cry” and “does it have to be ALL of the time?” Together the co-hosts use their parent coaching method to help her to re-frame the problem, find solutions and arm her with some practical tools and strategies to try at home.
Kira and Deana share ways to keep your cool when parenting pushes you to the limits. They discuss the negative impacts on that regular yelling can have on children as well as ways to think and behave differently in order to prevent explosive feelings. And, in the event parents still yell (which happens to the best of us!) they share ways to repair with kids and heal any hurt it may have caused.
Deana and Kira talk with Hunter Clarke-Fields, the Mindful Mama Mentor and host of the Mindful Mama podcast. Hunter shares tips for loving yourself into being a better parent. Coming from the philosophy that you cannot give what you do not have, she gives listeners tips and tools for finding a calm and mindful practice inside the storm that parenting can be.
