Ep.59 The Art of Conscious Parenting
Kids need calm, loving presence, not solutions, because the more we solve for their feelings early on we set them up to be emotionally dysregulated when it matters the most, which is all the years they're out of our home.
In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Becky Kennedy, a child psychologist also known as the “Millennial Parenting Whisperer,” to discuss how to navigate the journey of parenting. Throughout this insightful conversation, she walks us through the importance of fostering children’s “emotional microbiomes” to learn to handle frustration and challenges, while feeling seen and supported. Dr. Becky also provides useful tips that can help all of our relationships be as healthy as possible - whether with our children, partner, or friends. Ultimately, this conversation will remind you to operate from a place of empathy in relationships and be more cognizant of other’s emotions in your daily interactions.
