Why do we find ourselves saying the exact things we said we wouldn’t say as parents? Find out how your brain is bringing the past into the present, what it means to hear “shark music” and what you can do about it. Karen E. Purves, M.A., who created the Secure Parenting series, will clarify in practical terms what it means for your child to have a “secure base” and what your child most needs from you, especially when they are under duress. We’ll identify what scenarios most trigger you, what alternatives you can have ready and how “your feelings about feelings” are likely playing a role in your child’s outbursts. These insights can help you feel more capable and empowered!
