EP 71: Radical Self-Care With Anna Seewald

Radical self-care with Anna Seewald

Grateful to have had the opportunity to learn more about trauma-informed education with Anna. The truth is that it always comes back to radical self-care and how we help our children process their emotions and be ok with how they choose to express those feelings.

Things to Remember

“We’re here to support and nurture our children to become their authentic selves.”

“We are so focused on their behavior, academics, and performance. We forget that there is a whole child behind the behavior.”

“The hardest part about parenting is not parenting. It’s the self-regulation of the parent.”

“Your child is growing and so are you.”

– Anna Seewald

“Knowing oneself comes from attending with compassionate curiosity to what is happening within.” – Gabor Maté
