Parenting and Circle of Security Facilitator
As parents we all want to raise healthy, happy children. We want our children’s psychological, emotional, social and intellectual development to be supported and promoted by ourselves so they become the amazing adults they are destined to be.
But sometimes, as parents, we struggle, we don’t feel we are doing it right or we cannot manage our child or children’s behaviour which leads to further frustration and our ability, as parents, to cope diminishes.
They say that children do not come with a manual, that we are destined to walk this path not knowing what to do. But there is a way to ease our frustrations and the frustrations of our children, we just need to be able to read the signs that they give and meet their needs for them to feel safe, supported and within that leads to behavioural change.
L. R Knost stated ” When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it is our job to share our calm, not join their chaos”.
This is possible when you learn more about why children act the way they do or alternatively why we cannot manage some areas of parenting but excel in others. We all want what is best for our children and there is help for you and them. It is not about becoming the perfect parent, but knowing our emotional triggers will reduce our reactive responses to our children. It is time to bring the calm back to our families.
