Every kiddo sometimes has a rough night and needs to crawl into bed with a parent. But what do you do when a rough night is every night for nine years? If you’re anything like a mom I’ve been coaching, you get caught up in self-doubt, and you blame yourself for not doing the thing. But a lot of the time, what’s getting in your way is a part of your personality that’s trying to protect you from hurt and fear. What if you could take a step back and think about your responses from a place of understanding rather than judgment?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. How self-criticism can short-circuit the learning process, and hold us back from the change we know we want.

  2. Why our yearning to not pass on our own trauma to our kids can lead us to give too much. 

  3. The possibilities that open up when we explore our inner patterns with compassion and curiosity.

And much more!
