Sitting in Discomfort and Recognizing Your Inner Child

Sitting in Discomfort and Recognizing Your Inner Child

In this episode, Emily Souder shares the story of her son starting preschool and recognizing that he was acting as a mirror for some unresolved feelings she had at the same age. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • Building emotional intelligence

  • The power of pausing and getting curious

  • The importance of "doing the work" as a parent to gain insight when we feel triggered

  • Becoming an emotional coach for your child and yourself

We can’t change our kids’ behavior, but we can change how we respond to it.
— Emily Souder
