In this weeks episode we had the absolute privilege to speak to the INCREDIBLE Lael Stone.
If you haven’t heard of Lael, after listening to her speak you will be as obsessed as we are. She speaks from such a place of kindness, compassion, empathy and experience, and today’s episode was all about how we can raise our children to be resilient and compassionate – which is also the title of her AMAZING book which we highly recommend reading.
In this podcast we cover:
What is Aware Parenting?
Creating a safe space for your child’s big feelings
How do we get our children to cooperate?
Do kids really save up their big feelings for us?
How we can practically help our child come back into balance
What are ‘loving-limits’ and Lael’s opinion on boundaries and saying no to our child
‘Mother-rage’ and how we can best be the calm and connected parent we want to be, even when our inner world doesn’t feel calm
