Was your childhood characterized by a lack of emotional attunement, inconsistent connection, or trauma? Do strong emotions get triggered in you when your child is defiant, upset or misbehaving? Do unresolved issues from your past limit your ability to show up for your kids with presence, patience, and open-heartedness?
