This episode is about what I would tell you to do differently if I was still your pediatrician today.
Some of these things will be vastly different from what I told you in my medical practice, and have likely not done any irreparable harm, but I do want you to know that my stance has changed as I have learned from other coaches, parenting experts, and psychologists.
"Simply put, the greatest gift any parent can bestow upon their children is to be a happy, fulfilled, whole person in their own right.” -Will Joel Friedman, PhD

What you'll learn in this episode:
Why I was a big advocate of the cry it out method and what I suggest instead
I would've spoken up to help exhausted parents manage their nervous system
I would've been more insistent that parents taking care of their own needs first
The more we own our fears and emotions, the more our family feels harmony and joy
"When we can be present with our own big emotions, we can do the same with our kids and their big emotions."
With the help of a therapist or a coach like me you get to work at healing yourself. It may sound scary, but it is the best work you can do and such a gift to give to yourself and to your kids.
If this sounds good to you, I'd be happy to explore what a coaching relationship looks like together. Click here to book a consult and let's find out together.
