Why we explode & how to prevent itOvercoming Overwhelm eCourse (previously called Mama Meltdown) will help you gain clarity around when and why you get triggered and become reactive in daily parenting challenges and how to prevent subsequent ruptures. When you increase your mindful awareness of what's happening for you at these times when you become overwhelmed, you can not only avoid (or better repair) ruptures, but these times can lead to another layer of healing of those very sore old wounds from your unmet needs as a child.
