Things to Remember
“Parenting is the balance between being able to teach and connect and redirect when needed.”
“When you can identify what you feel, it’s automatically easier to self-regulate.”
“Teach in the moments of calm.”
“Resting is essential. It’s a part of the things that we need to do to continue to do the work we’re doing.”
– Janine Halloran
“When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.” – Fred Rogers
