This month on the podcast, I’m talking about the roots of meltdown behavior...for all humans. We often use the term “meltdown” to describe a young child’s explosive behavior.
However, I want to invite you to consider looking at your own behavior as well. When humans feel unsafe or outta control on the inside, we act out those feelings with outta control behavior on the outside.
It may look like explosiveness, numbing or “over” behaviors like overeating, over drinking, over shopping, over gossiping, yelling, blaming or even shutting down and checking out, which is called dissociation.
These behaviors are incredibly isolating and cause so much loneliness and disconnection. It’s a sign that we haven’t learned healthier ways of managing big feelings - something every human experiences.
We all go through hard things and experience discomfort. When we lack the skills to manage our big feelings, we ease the discomfort in other ways and develop coping skills.
By understanding this very common issue for many of us and learning to begin seeing our kids’ negative behaviors differently, we’re able to develop new skills and in turn support our kids more productively.
This is why becoming a Mastermind parent is a hugely healing process for you, your kids and your entire family. THIS is the real journey in my opinion.
We all just wanna feel better and learn to support ourselves and the people we love better. I’m so glad you’re here. Love y’all!
