Before I had children I just didn’t get the growth ages and stages of kids. I painted parenthood in black and white.
I didn’t understand when a friend would tell me the angelic 2-year-old being, that had just greeted me with a warm hug and high five, had 30 minutes earlier held up a supermarket checkout with a complete throw down because Mummy had opened the wrong end of her muesli bar.
Now, with 2 children of my own, I get it.
The dynamic of a growing child can shift from angel to demon in 2.6 seconds and it is with good reason that you hear such names as “terrible twos” and “threenager” (among others, ahem).
This episode of The Mummy Soul Sessions, Dr Sash and I chat about what is happening with our kids when they turn into super brats and how we, as parents, can get through those crazy younger ages and stages of kids (the older ones to come) without doing our heads in.
Who is Dr. Sash?
Dr. Sash is a clinical psychologist and blogger at From The Left Field. Lucky for me she is my regular guest and is on hand this series helping figure out all the junk that floats around in our heads. The do’s, don’ts, why’s and why not’s.
Hell yeah, it is cheap therapy!
