The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 189: Signs of Reactive Parenting & Why You Want to Get Out of It
Nov 15, 2022
Maybe most of us couldn’t give it a dictionary-worthy definition, but we all know what it looks like.
What comes to mind is the image of a parent lashing out, yelling at, at waving her fists at her kid following some unwanted behavior the child does, but reactive parenting can be much more subtle than this.
For all of us parents, we likely have some reactive tendencies simply because we’re quick to respond, especially when we’ve got a lot on our mind and are doing a million things at once. So whether your reactive parenting is subtle or not so subtle, I want to talk about the signs of reactive parenting, the signs of proactive parenting, and some reasons for why proactive parenting is going to be the best approach for you and your child.
Remember, I help you make parenting easier. Let’s head to the show.
