#210: Exploring How Your Past Impacts Your Parenting
January 31, 2023
Are there specific behaviors that get under your skin? Does your child know how to push your "buttons?" This week, Lisa reads excerpts from Chapter Two of The Connected Parent. Exploring how you were parented and your attachment style gives insight for why you react to your child the way you do.
As Dr. Karyn Purvis famously said, "You cannot lead a child to a place of healing if you do not know the way yourself." Making sense of our histories is essential to helping our children heal. In today's episode, Lisa reads portions of Chapter 2 of The Connected Parent, the book she co-authored with Dr. Karyn Purvis.
