The reality is that many of us were brought up in homes that didn’t teach foundational skills to help us manage our big emotions and reactions. You aren’t losing your cool with your kids because you’re a bad person, you are having trouble regulating your reaction because you lack practical and tangible skills.
Help teach you the practical skills you need to be more patient with your child and be more kind to yourself. Through lessons, live coaching Q&A’s, worksheets and more, Erica walks you through the skills you need to slow down your reaction and manage tough parenting situations with more confidence. Learn how to let go of shame and guilt and feel proud of how you manage difficult moments in motherhood.
Research shows that isolated incidents don’t predict secure or insecure attachment with our children, but rather a dependable, safe and predictable relationship over time. When we get it wrong,we can model repair and strengthen that secure attachment.
As mothers, the stakes are high and we so badly want to do a good job. There is no one right way to mother, and finding your way has to do with tuning into your values.
Somewhere along the road we adopted the notion that we need to enjoy every moment of motherhood and that is a myth!
Motherhood is not a set of internal instincts, it is a set of skills.
All moms get irritated, angry and frustrated with their children, it is how you manage that frustration that makes all the difference.
If you are losing your cool in motherhood, it’s not because you are failing. It is simply because you lack some skills that you can learn
Trying to break cycles of unhelpful behaviour such as yelling or losing their cool
Wanting to feel more in control of their reactions
Struggling to adjust to the identity shift of motherhood
Wanting to feel less guilt and be more self-compassionate
Did you know that one of the best ways to support your child through a tantrum or big emotions is to focus on staying calm yourself? How many of us were taught those skills growing up? I know that I wasn't! But guess what, I have learned them over time and so can you!
Some of the most popular lessons in the group have focused on the definition of a good mother, exploring the inner critic, ways to develop self compassion, as well as ways to regulate and ground big emotions.
These coaching calls often focus on how to take the information offered in the lesson and apply it directly in the moment. Erica takes real examples or problems moms are having in the moment and trouble shoots them to find a solution that truly works.
