Nicole says, “For me, our guest today was literally life-changing. Her work shifted the way I saw my kids and myself as a parent. She helped me to see my own emotional triggers differently and allowed me to release the pain of some of my childhood beliefs.
“Because of her, I am a better parent, one who strives to improve every day and but can accept my shortcomings with grace and love. It is my pleasure to introduce you to a woman show was courageous enough to against the norm and prove that we can raise kids with connection rather than coercion, with love rather than fear the amazing Pam Leo.”
In this interview we talk about:
1. What is emotional discharge and why its important for parents and kids?
2. What happens when we hold our feelings in
3. What is required for parents to be able to help kids manage the full range of emotions in positive ways
4. Why punishment hurts more than it heals and what to do instead to raise happy healthy kids.
