#33: How to Break Negative Cycles in Parenting

with Lorena Seidel, Joyful Parenting

In this episode, we discuss parenting strategies that enable you to break free from negative cycles you may have experienced as a child. Because most of us tend to become “just like our parents”, especially in moments of duress. If this is not necessarily a good thing, then you’ll love the encouragement and practical advice in this podcast.

Lorena Seidel M.Ed is an emotional intelligence expert, parenting coach, author, speaker, and mother of three. She works with moms who genuinely believe in peaceful and respectful parenting but struggle to put it into practice or make it last.

One last thing. I spend time each morning in meditation and would love to pray for you, your child or whatever’s on your heart. Simply email me and let me know how to pray. It can be as simple just your name or you can give a short explanation. Either way you can trust that I will do it. No strings attached, no follow up or anything, just a quiet way for me to support you in your parenting journey. Because no one needs to feel alone. 🧡
