Ep010: Dr. Brad Reedy – Become Alive Again
During this powerful conversation, Dr. Brad Reedy explains why it’s imperative for parents to detach in a healthy way and why over-identifying with our children can have lasting consequences.
As parents, we must take our own well-being into our hands and make our own lives our project. Our children are not responsible for our serenity! It’s important for us to treat our children as a person, allow them to have their feelings, love their “otherness,” and avoid trying to “fix them.”
This episode has fascinating insights for all parents, including the transformative message to help anyone who is struggling, “You are not alone, and I am with you.”
