When you want to make sure your parenting doesn’t impact your child in the longer term, it can be frustrating when you get told to either just *not* lose your cool or that it’s totally fine and everyone loses their cool.

While we definitely want to be kind to ourselves and not hold ourselves to perfect emotional regulation, we can take steps to unpack what the root cause of losing our cool so we can make changes to have it happen less and less.

If you need some support with realistic expectations, understanding your child’s perspective and building the skills to help them calm down, grab my free webinar Supporting Kids Through Tantrums at jodiethornton.com/tantrums

If you find that the root cause includes unpacking your emotional baggage, my program Confident, Connected Parenting gives you the practical step by step process and the support along the way. You can find it at jodiethornton.com/confidentconnectedparenting
