Description

Once I became a parent, I realized that this is the hardest (friggen) job on the planet. I was so much better at the parenting thing before I had kids (are you with me?). There’s so many opinions and so many “right ways”. In this short session we talk about just how normal it is to never feel like you’re doing this parenting (or co-parenting, or step-parenting) thing right. If you own a kid (or are helping to raise one), our sole job is to teach them this thing called emotional regulation, before we (eventually) launch them into this big-old world. That means, sadly, that in order to do that, we have to figure out how to model for them what calm looks like (and turns out, just telling them to CALM DOWN doesn’t work for long, and neither does taking the things they love away so that they’ll eventually figure out that you want them to be kind). Expect an evening of laughter and stories, while we understand how attachment and connection to our babes and our partners will give our children the most important skill they will ever learn, how to be kind and connected people we can be proud of. ~Jody

About the Speaker:

Dr. Jody Carrington is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent most of her career working with children and families who have experienced trauma. Having grown up in rural Alberta, she worked on the Mental Health Inpatient Units of the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary for 10 years and is now in pleased to be back to a rural setting, working in private practice, speaking around the country, writing a book, and raising her family. Jody is a passionate believer in the power of the relationship with the people we love, lead, and teach. The core of everything she speaks and writes about comes down to this: We are wired to do hard things. We can do those hard things so much easier when we remember this: We are wired for connection.
