It’s the 100th episode!!! Woo-hoo!!!

How can we create family relationships that weather any storm? Dr. Shauna Shapiro explains how our old paradigms of parenting get it wrong, and research-proven ways to become a mindful mama.

Some important takeaways from this conversation:

  1. “What you practice grows stronger.” If we practice judgment, we become more judgmental. If we practice kindness, we strengthen that. We know that with neuroplasticity, our repeated experiences shape the brain.
  2. Shame actually prevents us from making the changes that we want to make. Instead, kindness releases dopamine and turns ON the learning centers of the brain, activating us for change.
  3. As a parent, you can be in your sovereignty and power, hold boundaries, and keep a soft heart.
