5 Things To Keep In Mind If You Are A Parent With Anxiety

5 Things To Keep In Mind If You Are A Parent With Anxiety

This episode was born from a big need in The Empathic Parent community...how to shield children from your anxiety as a parent.


I'm sharing 5 things to be mindful of if you have anxiety:

  1. Children are vulnerable AND resilient.

  2. Identify your triggers and deal with your stuff.

  3. Let go of expectations and over-identification.

  4. Set boundaries and limits without guilt.

  5. Anxiety is your superpower - model coping.

We don’t create a good relationship by picking the right partner. We become the right partner over time through learning and growing with each other.
