How often do we miss the moment to lead our people towards a peaceful solution or valuable learning during real life hiccups?
Maybe the situation is a sibling fight that requires mediation because things have gotten violent
Or maybe no assistance at all is needed bc mom playing judge and jury simply exacerbates the conflict between your kids
Maybe simply owning your reaction that led to a power struggle between you and your child. It does take two to tango after all and your the one with the fully developed brain, right?
Do you find yourself frequently going to that blaming place?
When there is conflict, notice if your brain asks:
Who’s at fault?
Blame blocks empathy.
