Ep. 150: Why You Can Know What to Do and Still Not Do It?!

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

You’ve probably wondered how you can know the neuroscience of behavior and have a toolbox full of tools…and still struggle to actually USE those tools.

Most parents have the thought “If I know what to do, why aren’t I actually doing it???”

It’s not because you’re a bad parent.

It’s because you’re dysregulated, have a sensitized stress response system, and probably have some implicit memories that leave you vulnerable to being triggered.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How very little of our behavior comes from conscious thought
  • Why your sensitized stress response system leaves you vulnerable
  • Why regulated, connected parents who feel safe parent the way they want to
