S04|12 - What Authoritarian Parenting Looks Like 20 Years Later

May 16, 2022


If you were disciplined through more coercive measures- spanking, time-outs, grounding, bribing or threats… you may have felt like you turned out just fine. What does fine actually look like though? How is this affecting your current parenting and your current self? Let’s dig into what FINE looks like and learn about what “inner healing” really means.

In today’s episode:

  • How our childhood affects our parenting now
  • What the FAWN trauma/alarm response is
  • How we internalize our failures and mistakes as parents and people
  • Why living an inauthentic life leads to burn-out
  • Why we’re so emotionally reactive and what to do about it
