Our negative reactions have negative effects on both our children and ourselves. It can cause feelings of fear, guilt, health issues and especially impact our relationships.
By deactivating your triggers and managing your stress you go from reacting to responding. When you respond you are present and in control. You have the patience and clarity to support your child in the moment and this helps build lasting and loving relationships.
You are a conscious parent and by you being in control of your emotions you are teaching your child to mange and regulate theirs. Our children learn through what they see and experience and they are learning how to be adults from us.
