I just have to say, I am soo glad I took the Be Calm course. It has literally changed the way I address my son when his big emotions pop up in the most untimely situations lol. It takes a lot to approach parenting in a way that was not the norm for me growing up or that I witnessed in adulthood, so this approach to being and remaining calm was right on time for a my prince as he approaches the terrific two's. Not only have I learned how to deal with my feelings around his big feelings by taking more time to breath, and by practicing more self care so that I have more patience and kindness in response to him, but my goal is that it will model for him what to do when he gets upset and frustrated so that he can ultimately learn to deal with his emotions in a different way as well. The entire course was enlightening, but I have to say that the most helpful part of the course for me personally was the Ask/Listen portion. It has significantly improved how I communicate with my son during melt-downs and how I de-escalate him during these situations. He still has his moments, of course, but this was a definite game changer. Its such a great course, with a creator who embodies the Be Calm spirit. I am recommending this to everyone I know who can use a little help to "Be Calm" in their parenting. Thanks, Ekua, for sharing this wealth of information and your overall calm and kind expertise!
It can be so hard raising a child with ADHD who has a big emotional range. It's a daily challenge keeping my own emotions and tendency towards an angry response in check. Ekua provides actionable strategies to take care of myself and connect with my daughter which helps me be more present with her and respond with more compassion.
