โœจFollow Bryce on The Mom Brain Therapist for more about everyday mental health and #parenting

When Bryce first started "What's Good Wednesdays", many viewed "wins" as the things typically celebrated in life. Positive pregnancy tests, new babies, job promotions and more. All wonderful things!

But over time, they've widened our scope of celebrations. And now each week alongside those still wonderful big wins, they also share about how we asked for help, how they took space when big emotions were bubbling up, how they set a boundary when theh needed and how they advocated for themselves and their needs. Pretty great things worth celebrating both for us and our kids.

How do you feel about the things worth celebrating in the graphic? Are they easy or not so easy for you to notice? What would you add? ๐ŸŒˆ

๐Ÿ‘‹Hey there I'm Bryce, I share about motherhood and everyday mental health.

On Wednesdays in my stories we celebrate "What's Good Wednesday", a day to celebrate the big and not as big "wins" we had during a week of life and parenting.

When I first started this, many viewed "wins" as the things typically celebrated in life. Positive pregnancy tests, new babies, job promotions and more. All wonderful things!

But over time, we've widened our scope of celebrations (as we should). And now each week alongside, those still wonderful big wins, we also share about how we asked for help, how we took space when our big emotions were bubbling up, how we set a boundary when we needed and how we advocated for ourselves and our needs. Pretty great things worth celebrating both for us and our kids.

How do you feel about the things worth celebrating in the graphic? Are they easy or not so easy for you to notice? What would you add?

If you'd like to read along, come check out today's stories for some of our weekly wins!

This is a brilliant reminder. Parents are a childโ€™s first teachers.

There are some lessons we need to explicitly teach rather than waiting for them to just watch and figure it out for themselves.

With social and emotional learning itโ€™s good to explain what youโ€™re doing and why. For example, โ€œIโ€™m feeling a bit stressed after work, but I know that by slowing down, belly breathing and having a chat and a laugh with you, Iโ€™ll feel better. My stress will pass through me.โ€

Accurately identifying feelings is a key component of empathy. This "How Do You Feel" Chart shows visuals of eight common feelings. When using the D.N.A. Process (Describe, Name, Acknowledge) with children, we must be certain to use a feeling word for the ๏ปฟ๏ปฟ"name" component. Once we identify our feelings, we can begin to manage them.

Emotion coaching...

Research shows that emotion coached children are more emotionally stable, more resilient, have fewer behavior problems, better relationships with their parents, and are more self aware.

Parents and educators trained in emotion coaching report feeling able to communicate more effectively with children during difficult situations and found these situations to be less stressful.

Emotion coaching is one component of EFFT, Emotion Focused Family Therapy, and it's helped tremendously with my own children so I can speak from first hand experience.

The way we speak about children matters ๐ŸŒˆ

The way we speak about children matters ๐ŸŒˆ

What did you hear about yourself growing up?

โœจSheโ€™s so dramatic.
โœจHe never finishes anything.
โœจTheyโ€™re such a wuss.

How we talk about our children matters. It shapes the way they see themselves. That doesn't mean that we can't talk about the challenges--because there ARE challenges--but I wonder what it would look like if we did that without using language that is harmful or disrespectful to children.

What would it look like to seek support, and talk about the hard, without making it a child's responsibility to change? To frame it in a way that recognizes that our feelings are OUR responsibility.
What challenges are you facing right now? Let's shift the language and support each other while respecting our kiddos.

Happy Friday! I hope this advice - from a neuroscientist who specializes in developmental psychobiology- releases you from any GUILT about taking care of your own wellbeing. ๐Ÿงกโ 
โ 
Parenting isn't as much about getting it all RIGHT. It's about providing that stable sense of safety, consistency and compassion that our kids need to flourish. To be that reliable captain, we need to look after ourselves, too. It's all connected. โ 
โ 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Does the science help you feel less guilty about taking care of yourself?โ 
โ 
โœ… Follow @WildPeaceforParents for real self-care inspiration and resilience resources. We're about bolstering YOU, so you can keep showing up.โ 
โ 
"Parents ask me, "What is the best parenting advice you can offer?" I tell them, "Do what you can to take care of your wellbeing, to make sure you are feeling safe, and to manage your emotions in a healthy way. When you feel this way, that gets translated to your children in a powerful way." - Nim Tottenham, PhD โ
