Sometimes therapeutic parenting with children with histories of trauma and vulnerable nervous systems can appear to be permissive parenting. But actually, this way of parenting often calls for more structure and boundaries. It’s just that we often aren’t using the word ‘boundaries’ correctly! This session will bring clarity to what boundaries are and aren’t. Participants will learn how to set boundaries that set our kids up for success. We will also address how to have boundaries with behavior we cannot control- specifically verbal aggression.
Participants will be able to:
Articulate the difference between boundaries, rules, and consequences.
Identify ways to establish boundaries that set kids up for success
Create a practice that will increase their psychological boundary with stressful behavior like verbal aggression.
