Have you ever noticed yourself reacting in a certain way to your child’s behaviour, felt ashamed and then thought to yourself “where on Earth did that come from”? Many of us have triggers from our past that influence how we behave as parents and I’ve always felt that having an awareness of their origins is an important starting point in conscious parenting and any healing.
After all, you want to be present for your kids as the “best you”, right?
Today’s guest, mother of 3, Laura Linklater is a Cycle-Breaker Parent Mentor and has been there, having been brought up in a household with alcoholism.
You’ll hear Laura talk about many topics including:-
- Seeing your child as your awakener.
- The importance of having a connection with your child.
- Her collaborative problem solve method.
Laura shares loads of great tips and insights in this episode to help parents break their cycles so that they can support their children to flourish.
