"Having awareness of ourselves and others helps us as parents to stay grounded in those tough moments with our kids, it helps us respond with more empathy and understanding. When we are aware our own feelings, thoughts, and responses then we can be more regulated in times of stress. We need this awareness in order to respond more effectively to our children's emotions and expereinces as well as responding in ways that are in line with the values we are trying to instill in our children."
