How do we find the strength to break harmful patterns from our own childhood with our kids? Why is it so hard? Do we truly have the ability to change?
It is often difficult and painful to break parenting patterns that were harmful to us as children. But pattern-breaking is entirely possible and may not be as difficult as we fear.
In this episode, Amy and Margaret discuss the definition of a "pattern," how to notice our own, and why changing is indeed an option.
