Child Not Listening

When I think of my child not listening to me and talking back, I feel range and out-of-control.

My biggest fear is that she will rebel and I will lose her.

I am open to feeling safe in letting this go now.

If I were to magically wake up without this fear, I would feel relaxed, at ease, confident that I know what I am doing as a parent, secure in my relationship with my daughter and the boundaries I set for her. I would communicate calmly with her and disengage when she starts to escalate.

I would wait for her to come to me when she is calmer, allow her the space to self-reflect and self-correct in her own time so she can transform and grow into regulating her emotions and thinking.
