“The trick here was noticing what was going on, accepting that this is what’s actually happening now, and getting curious about it. That mental stance created enough space for both of you to make a different and better choice about what to do next.”
Carla Naumburg, Ready, Set, Breathe: Practicing Mindfulness with Your Children for Fewer Meltdowns and a More Peaceful Family

“children will be more likely to push buttons when they’re triggered—because they’re tired, hungry, confused, scared, excited, anxious, or otherwise overwhelmed by Big Feelings. It is totally reasonable to help your children in these moments, to redirect, feed, or soothe them. Each time you do that, you’re modeling an effective way to respond to their triggers. Just remember, it is not your job to get them to stop pushing. Your job is to teach them, again and again, to notice and respond skillfully to their triggers”
Carla Naumburg, How to Stop Losing Your Shit with Your Kids: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Calmer, Happier Parent

“The secret to staying calm is self-awareness; it’s about noticing you’re about to explode and giving yourself a chance to calm down.”
Carla Naumburg, How to Stop Losing Your Shit with Your Kids: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Calmer, Happier Parent
