131: Finding Joy: Re-parenting ourselves as we parent our son
Show Notes

On this episode of The Finding Joy series, I bring back my husband to discuss a very important aspect of parenting. The importance of re-parenting ourselves as we parent our son. We discuss the cycles we are trying to break with our son as we simultaneously work on ourselves.

We discuss the generational trauma of:

  • Body image insecurities 
  • Comparison 
  • Anger and yelling 
  • No space for emotions 
  • And pressure to be high-achieving in careers 


The Finding Joy Series is a series to promote self-growth and self-reflection as we parent our littles. Here are two related episodes to check out:
