Episode 244

Parenting a child with big emotions can take patience and energy. Sometimes when our energy is depleted and we’re really frustrated with our kids, we respond in a way that we later regret… and then we feel guilty. But the next time we’re frustrated, we still react in a way that we regret… which leads to even more guilt.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How to recognize the frustration-guilt cycle
  • How we can reduce our frustration in difficult moment
  • How we can reduce our guilt even when we DO handle things in a way we wish we hadn’t
