Defusing your anger as a parent… the Parental Pause

In this video, one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors Maggie Dent, “queen of common sense”, talks about parental anger and how you can diffuse it.

Maggie demonstrates her “Parental Pause”, simple steps to get a handle on things when you’re losing it with your kids.

She reminds us to pause, ground ourselves and see things through our children’s eyes and remind ourselves that we are their safe base.
