Is Your Kid Experiencing the Normal Ups and Downs of Growing Up… Or is There Something Deeper Going On?

Learn the signs of disconnection in your child and discover the strategies trauma-informed parents (A.K.A “Polyvagal Parents”) use to strengthen their families.

Every parent knows that raising children is hard. But do you ever ask yourself, “Is it really supposed to be like this?”

If you’re overwhelmed with tantrums, screaming fights, and a parental relationship that grows more strained every day, your child might not have the tools they need to feel secure in your home.

The only cure for this disconnection is to learn how to “hold space” for and honor your child’s emotions.

Conscious parenting is all about learning to face your own shadows and using that understanding to shift the way you respond to your own children. This upgraded presence you can master is known as “Polyvagal Parenting”. It’s been shown to result in children who are more comfortable sharing with their parents, more playful and relaxed in the home, less anxious, and less likely to act out as they grow older as they are set up to develop a deeper sense of self.
For $30, you can join my upcoming workshop, Connecting to the Anxious Child: Support Your Kid's Emotional Health by Becoming a Polyvagal Parent (From a Somatic Lens, on April 19th, and discover how to embody the conscious parenting practices that lead to a more joyful, connected home where children learn the most important skills most of us have never been taught:

What Is Polyvagal Parenting?

Polyvagal Parenting is grounded in the science of Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, which explores the relationship between the nervous system and the perceived threat of early emotional experiences.

Here’s how it works: if a child doesn’t feel they have an outlet to freely express negative emotions, frustrations, and experiences, they’re forced to internalize, and they’ll refuse to open up in the future.

Or, they fawn and people please in order to get their needs met.

This leads to more serious consequences down the line.

In childhood:

behavioral issues such as tantrums, throwing things, biting, and screaming.

In adolescence:

anxiety, an effort to put distance between themselves and their parents, and a higher likelihood of turning to negative influences like drugs and sex too young.

In adulthood:

low self-worth and a struggle to connect with people socially and intimately. Insecure attachments in their relationships.

Polyvagal Parenting focuses on understanding and shifting the dynamics that lead to a disconnected child, creating stronger, secure bonds within families and with themselves.

By recognizing signs of disconnection, we can begin to address the root causes, rather than just the symptoms. Polyvagal Parenting introduces strategies to foster emotional regulation, resilience, and stronger parent-child connections.

The Impact of Disconnection

Children who feel disconnected often struggle with trust, forming healthy relationships, and managing their emotions. It can stem from countless causes, including parental absence, lack of attunement, and unaddressed trauma.

The consequences can be far-reaching, leading to behavioral issues, social isolation, and repeating unhealthy relationship patterns into adulthood.

Your journey is equally challenging. Parents of disconnected children experience strong feelings of guilt, frustration, and the fear that their kids won’t want a relationship with them later in life.

It’s easy to feel hopeless when you’re facing a child who’s already pushing you away with both hands. But you have the power and the responsibility to shift the dynamic and create the space they need to self-regulate.
