There's a question that I see coming up a lot in parenting groups and forums, which I wanted to address in this episode. It's all about feeling like a bad parent because you get mad and yell. The question can look like this:
I want to know the best way to parent. I want to be the best that I can be. But right now I’m feeling like I’m failing. That’s because I shout too much. I have a short fuse and is always leads to feeling huge waves of guilt.
In this episode, we're talking about what can you do with those feelings of mom-guilt or dad-guilt. And especially, we will explore the power of compassion and self-compassion. You will learn how a couple of simple exercises can enhance your self-worth, reduce negative thinking, and eventually make you feel better about your parenting and be able to better show up with your child.
