Parents Have Feelings, Too
Do you ever feel confused about how you are supposed to handle your feelings as a parent? On one hand, we are supposed to not talk about them and “shield” our children from the ups and downs of life. On the other hand, aren’t we supposed to model healthy emotional expression and teach them that feelings are important? We get into the WHYs and HOWs of expressing your feelings as a parent, all with the aim of improving your well-being as well as increasing empathy and problem-solving in your kids. So sit back, relax, take a listen… and then tell your kids all about it!
Disclaimer: Please remember we are real live therapists, however this is a podcast and is not considered a therapy session. Not only because there is no co-pay but also because we can’t speak to your individual experiences. We are here to help you keep raising healthy kids. And remember, if you are an imperfect parent, we are right there with you. If you or someone you love is in immediate danger, please call your local crisis hotline or go to your nearest emergency room.
