Emotionally Aware Parenting. With Dr. Maiysha Clairborne

Emotionally Aware Parenting with Dr. Maiysha Clairborne

Becoming a parent often reveals unhealed trauma, and our children will activate emotions we did not even know existed, which is why it is so important to do our healing work as we become emotionally aware parents.

We Talked About

  • What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • How can we be self-aware as parents
  • What might be the blind spots we have when parenting
  • Trauma Responsive Communication
  • How can we help our children navigate trauma

Things to Remember

“Flexibility comes with creatively listening to the deeper context of what our children are communicating.”

“When we start to see the behavior as the communication, we can ask the right questions.”

”Communication is more than just words. Only 7% of communication are words, 93% is everything else.”

“The meaning of your communication is the response you get.”

“Trauma impacts our thinking, behavior, and communication.”

“Going through the healing process helps to stop the behaviors, communication, and thoughts that inflict trauma on the younger generation.”

“We have to practice self-compassion and self-love throughout our parenting journey. Or else we will continue to traumatize and re-traumatize ourselves, and that’s no good for our children.”

― Dr. Maiysha Clairborne
