Insight 1

The way we react to parenting situations is tied up to our own childhood.

_________________________________

Remember yourself as a child.

Think about what makes you angryOr frustrated as parent. Then, try to remember if anything similar used to happen to you were young. Try to draw links between your childhood and your own child's present, and address any emotions attached.

Meet your child At their level.
