One of my biggest challenges as a parent has been dealing with my own childhood "stuff" and trying to minimize the impact of my upbringing on how I now parent my own children. I've come so far but have continued to feel bad about the almost automatic reactions I have to my kids sometimes, both internal and external. This book has helped me understand that, not only am I NORMAL for having those feelings, but also that there's so much I can do to manage my triggers and reactions and improve my connection with my kids. Life changing!!
This book is comforting and immensely readable, containing insights, personal stories, and strategies to practice. Divided into two sections, 1. Break the Cycle of Reactivity and 2. Raising Kind, Confident Kids, the author gives us two different angles from which to practice improving our relationships with our children (and, I found, with ourselves! )
I loved this book and highly recommend it!
