Now that you have raised your awareness of your own internal state when you are triggered, the next step is acceptance.
This step is all about changing your expectations based on understanding of the normal developmental needs of children.
In this episode, I review 10 developmentally normal behaviors of children that can help you shift your perspective of your child's behavior which in turn will help you be less triggered. It’s that simple!
Episode 2: Homework
1. Identify the 10 most triggering behaviors of your child and begin to shift the perspective of your child's behavior by applying what you learned in this lesson about the developmental needs of children and what is normal.
2. Using the paradigm of developmental needs, how can you shift your behavior to support your child's development versus hinder it? How are you going to respond differently from a place of understanding, empathy and acceptance?
