EPISODE 40 THE PARENTING MENTOR: When You Find Yourself Losing Your Temper with Veronica M.
Veronica isn’t happy with the way she overreacts at her 3-year-old daughter, especially when she’s not listening or making a mess. If you ever find yourself yelling at your children, this episode may help you reframe your reactions so that you and your child understand and can move forward.
Today, we talk about how Veronica can revise her approach so that, in the moment, she’s able to resist the temptation to lose her temper. She notes that some specific things stress her out through no fault of her daughter and discusses the source of this stress, and we talk about how she can open up to her daughter about her struggles in this area. I talk about the ways Veronica can reframe the things her daughter does that stress her out, I note the power of a kitchen timer, and I stress the importance of talking through emotions with consistent vocabulary.
“She’s not creating a mess; she’s learning something.”
