Asking powerful questions is fundamental to being attuned to ourselves and our children. Today, my guest, a life coach and mother of four, helps parents through life-changing transitions.
We Talked About
- Helping career-driven women transition into Motherhood
- Questions parents can ask themselves to tune in to themselves and their children
- Staying attuned to family while traveling for work
- Suggestions of what we can do to feel attuned to ourselves and to our child
Things to Remember
“Tune in to what you want and let go of visions of yourself that are no longer in sync with what you want.”
“There’s a big difference between what we think will happen when we have our child and what does happen.”
“Physically attuning with your child can be powerful and connecting.
“You’re here to co-regulate with them until they can regulate on their own.”
