The Parent Trap: Unlearning the Parenting Philosophies of Our Childhoods

Have you ever stopped and thought about why you parent your child the way that you do? Where did these practices come from? Why do you expect your children to respond to them in a particular way? Oftentimes, our parenting philosophies are rooted in what we experienced in our own childhoods. Perhaps your parents told you to "stop crying!" when you were upset as a child, so now you do the same with your kids. Now as an adult, do you struggle with expressing and processing your emotions in a healthy way or even in general? Is the continuation of this parenting philosophy preventing your kids from learning how to do so?Using examples from my own childhood and parenting journey, The Parent Trap aims to help you explore some of the parenting philosophies you grew up under, understand their potential impact on you as both a child and adult, and determine if it's the best way to parent your own children. Just because something has always been done a certain way doesn't mean it's the best way for you or your children. Taking an honest look at how our parenting style impacts our children can be hard, but it can also lead you down a path that promotes healthy and fruitful family dynamics for generations to come. Join me on this journey and let's start healing together!5
