It's a hard thing to admit that you currently don't like your child. There can be a huge amount of shame associated with it, and strong feelings that you "shouldn't" feel that way. After all, you're their mum or dad - you're the one person in the world who "should" love & like them the most!

Adding shame or self-judgement on top of your feelings of frustration and annoyance only makes things worse, as you'll probably berate yourself for feeling that way, and your responses to your child becomes increasingly disconnected & harsh.

So what can you do to help? How can you help to shift those feelings of annoyance, frustration and dislike in a healthy way that's going to dramatically impact your relationship with your child for the better?

Listen the this week's episode the find out how, and to hear how I recently worked through my feelings of dislike & frustration with my own daughter.
