“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

“no longer believe that losing my shit is a moral failing or that I should be able to simply choose to stay calm. I see my explosions as a symptom, a red flag letting me know that I need to take care of myself, or get some support, or just accept defeat for the day and turn on the TV (which I no longer see as a failure).”
Carla Naumburg, How to Stop Losing Your Shit with Your Kids: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Calmer, Happier Parent

“You’re doing an incredibly hard job, and you’re doing it without the right information, support, resources, and rest.”
