So, you may be fairly new to Hand in Hand's approach or maybe you've been trying out the tools for a few months, even years. But at some point you'll probably – most likely when you are particularly tired or frustrated – ask, “Is Hand in Hand too hard???”
We've been there!
This week, Elle and Abigail talk about when and why this question pops up. They explore the alternatives and share their own experiences about when it's happened to them – and don't forget Abigail has been parenting this way for about a decade! Plus, we also walk you through ways to get past this ickiness so that you really do find your calm place in parenting.
We've been there too – it really can happen!
Listen to Finding Your Calm Place in Parenting – It Really Can Happen and find out:
- Why we reach our limits with this approach
- Why other parenting styles may offer a quick fix that seems good in the moment and how this compares with Hand in Hand over time
- What we can do to get on track
- How to navigate those darker moments
