What makes parenting rewarding?
What happens when parenting isn’t rewarding?
How does it feel?
What does it do to us?
Plan B – “I can’t trust that adults will meet my needs”
Meaning Making System
Child expresses need
We experience ourselves in a positive way
We identify the need & meet it
Child is soothed
Facial expressions, eye movement, subtle change in tone of voice
Over-reaction to nonverbal communication
Child is a threat to well being
We see few parenting options
We judge the child and ourselves
Yelling timeout, grounding
“I am not a good parent”
We go into survival mode
Quick, emotions based action
“The Twos and the Teens”
Not just self-care
More than deep breathing
A learned parenting style
“What’s a Parent to Do?”
