Parenting during tantrums 

We have been doing this “Gentle Parenting” thing for most of our kid’s lives and sometimes it’s just awful. And I just want to throw something at a wall. And yell. And discipline like my parents did.

But then my kid melts into my arms after a violent tantrum saying “I just need you to hold me right now” and I know it’s working.

Just thoughts after coming down from an especially tough evening.

@Megra3 The struggle is real, partly because my parents didn't nurture emotional intelligence in me. I feel like I could help Luna better if it was modeled for and taught to me from an early age, ya know?

@LiveYourValues also I read in the book “Connection Parenting” about how it’s hard to silence those “tapes” that play in our heads from our own childhoods. Sometimes I find myself saying the same things my parents said without even thinking.
