Mama, Cut Yourself some Slack - On Self-Compassion in Motherhood with Laura Froyen, PhD
In today’s episode, my guest Laura Froyen and I explore the world of positive parenting and self-compassion. The more we talked, the more parallels with emotional intelligence and leadership qualities we could identify.
We explored how we need to really let our emotions wash over ourselves, and not stuff them down. We also talked about how we need to stop beating ourselves up when we make a mistake and what to do when it happens.
We talked about how we need to let everyone in the family figure out their own relationship and avoid getting into the “triangle”. Laura shares how to remove ourselves from a triad when it happens and how to redirect to have your child and dad talk it out.
