parent pep talk: how not to drown in what your kids throw at you

Your¬†child comes home from middle/high school upset. Your kid calls you overwhelmed at college. If you’re a parent, there’s a good chance you’ve been in these situations at some point and it’s painful!

In this pep talk, I’m sharing what it really means when we get stuck in our kids’ stuff,¬†what you can do to help yourself and your kids, and what a regulation ritual looks like.
