How Mom and Dad Impacted Your Relationships

Written By Dr. Nima

If you are dealing with an insecure attachment,
narcissistic/codependent relational dynamics,
or anxious avoidant patterns….
(I’m half kidding here, by the way).
Just here to let you know how common this is.
Sometimes I think it’s the norm.
Ever wonder why it’s so hard to shift?
The answer is in our conditioning.
There are actually mistakes parents make
that contribute to hard-wiring these dynamics—
and actually are the root cause of Narcissism as well.
I discuss all 7 of them and what to do to break the cycle
on this podcast episode.
This is ideal if you’re a parent and you want to avoid
causing your children to tolerate insecure dynamics in the future.
(avoid the 7 mistakes HERE)
Your wingman on the adventure,
P.S. Parents: If you’re aware of how much influence
parenting can have on a child's sense of security,
and you want to break the cycle of insecurity,
you’re invited to join us at "Connecting to the Anxious Child:
Support your kid’s emotional health by becoming a 'Polyvagal Parent.’"
This workshop is designed to equip parents with the understanding
and tools needed to prevent
the development of insecurity and anxiety
rooted in childhood experiences of shame.
Scheduled for Friday, April 19th, from 4-7pm PST
(which is Saturday, April 20th at 10am in Sydney),
our zoom gathering will create
a pivotal shift towards nurturing secure, confident children.
For $30, you'll dive deep into the seven parenting flaws
that inadvertently foster a landscape of insecurity—
overvaluation, underestimation, lack of genuine empathy,
emotional inconsistency,
extreme control or permissiveness,
viewing the child as an extension of oneself, and neglect.
In this workshop, you'll learn how to:
• Cultivate an environment that affirms your child's worth and capabilities, steering clear of overvaluation and underestimation.
• Demonstrate genuine empathy and emotional consistency, laying the foundation for your child's emotional intelligence and self-esteem.
• Balance guidance and freedom, allowing your child to develop autonomy while feeling supported and understood.
• Recognize and celebrate your child's unique identity, encouraging them to pursue their own dreams and goals.
• Provide attentive, responsive care that acknowledges your child's needs and feelings, combating neglect and fostering a sense of security.
"Connecting to the Anxious Child” will leave you with insights
into avoiding these common pitfalls,
guiding you to become a 'Polyvagal Parent’
adept at supporting your child’s journey toward emotional health and self-worth.
This is your chance to ensure your child doesn't just grow
but thrives in an environment free from the shadows of insecurity and codependency.
