Much of how we show up in relationships is formed during our childhood. Understanding how our parents did, or did not, show us love can help us relate better as adults, be better partners and be better parents as well. Listen to today’s show for actionable tips and insights to understand our childhoods and relate better as adults.
In this episode with Dr. Julia DiGangi we discuss relationship advice topics that include:
- How our childhood shapes how we relate as adults
- How we pick up on emotional energy as young children and how it impacts us later in life
- The forms of injury our parents can pass along to us
- How to parent from an emotionally centered perspective
- How to raise our kids so that they relate in the best way possible as adults
- And much more!
