How to stop losing your sh*t with your kids
Do your kids push your buttons? Of course, they do, and as Carla Naumburg explains in the book – that is what children do. Parents are covered in buttons, and our children like to push them. It’s not their fault, and it’s normal for you to overreact.
I listened to Carla in an interview this week, and she broke it all down into simple steps. Talking with Yael Schonbrun on Psychologists off the Clock, you’ll discover:
- Five fundamental truths about losing it with your kids
- How to own your triggers
- Why kids are button pushers, not triggers
- Practice to desensitise your buttons
- How to engage self-compassion (and why it’s vital right now)
- Best practices to apply after losing your sh*t with your kids
Here is your weekly round-up of creative ideas from around the world to help you work, love, play and feel better.
