Ep 69: ADHD Symptoms That Come From Childhood Trauma

2/9/2024
Was your child diagnosed with ADHD - and then you read the symptomps and realized you might have it too? Is that why it's so difficult for you to be a calm, happy mom who doesn't yell? Then listen in because this episode is for you. Because what is diagnosed as ADHD (hyperactivity, scattered attention, lack of impulse control) is a result of childhood trauma ("Adversed Childhood Experiences"). So rather than labelling and medicating yourself and your child, you might try a much more effective approach. Because that will not only tune down your ADHD symptoms, but you will also finally create that safe, calm, loving home you wish you had growing up... Worth the try? So let's dive in!

Ep 68: Unconditional Love... Does It Even Exist? And Am I Worth It?

2/2/2024
How does it feel to be loved unconditionally - the good and the "bad" in you, no matter if you make a mistake, no matter if you look perfect... Is it even possible to be loved or love someone else unconditionally? Or is it just one of those unicorn theories? That's a completely normal and natural question to ask, especially if you didn't always feel loved/appreciated by your parents. If you felt like you had to prove yourself, behave and act in the ways they approved, in order to get their positive attention. So now it's really hard for you to feel like a great parent because you're torn between setting rules and boundaries (so that they don't grow up into being spoiled brats), but also loving them even if they make a mistake. Because you want them to feel safe with you, and tell you about their struggles. So HOW? How can you learn about unconditional love if you never got enough of it? Come with me...

Yes, I hear you. Kids not listening is the N.1 reason why moms start yelling. You know shouting at your kids is bad, and you don’t enjoy all this drama either but what else can you do after you asked them nicely and patiently already like 10 times? Of course, you blow up eventually because this is just not fair! Why are YOU the only one who’s supposed to do everything for everyone? They should all be helping too, or at least not make it so difficult! I hear you. This story used to be on auto-loop in my head too, for longer than I’d like to admit. Until I finally became sick of it. If you’re done wasting time memorizing parenting scripts that don’t work anyway, then dive in with me. Because there’s so much more going on under the surface.

11/3/2023
It’s easy to be a calm mom when there’s no time pressure, nowhere to go… But that happens like once a month, right? Otherwise you keep running at the speed of light 24/7. So how do you do that, without losing your patience, and without yelling at your kids? Because I know you’ve already noticed - when you’re running late, the more things you have to squeeze in, the less your kids usually want to cooperate, and you end up shouting in a way you regret and keep thinking about for the next hours… What if I told you there was a way to stay calm, without running late, without becoming a lazy mom?

Ep 54: How It Feels When Your Childhood Trauma is Healed And You No Longer Explode in Anger

10/27/2023
“I’ll be happy and calm when… (a list of conditions follows).” That was the autopilot on which I ran. And because I couldn’t imagine my life NOT being stressful and super busy anytime soon, that also meant that I felt I could not be a zen mom any time soon. At least not until my daughter leaves home and I have fewer things to worry about. But then - duh! - that would be kind of late to start being a calm & happy mom, right?! That’s when I realized I was locking myself up into a trap of contradictory expectations. Do you know what I’m talking about? So what if there was a way? And it was possible for you too… What would be possible then? How could your life be different? That’s what I’m going to share in this very personal episode. Not because I’m perfect and my ego wants to show off. But to open you up to the possibility that you can feel better too.

Ep 53: How To Set Healthy Boundaries With Your Kids

10/20/2023
What are boundaries really? Because kids naturally don’t like rules, they will always try to break them, negotiate, not do it, … But I also didn’t want to force, push, or yell at my daughter if she said no or didn’t listen. Because I didn’t want her to grow up into being me: the one who always listened and never said no out of fear, and ended up becoming a resentful people-pleaser, walking on eggshells not to make mommy mad = afraid of not being loved. So is it even possible to have rules and get them respected without yelling and all that drama around it? I won’t sugar-coat it, this one took me a while to figure out because I didn’t have any healthy role models growing up.
