How can Self-Reg help your mental health and up your parenting game during a pandemic?
This pandemic has been chaotic to say the least. Everything seems to change day to day and stress is magnified – for you and for those around you. But what can you do to help yourself and your children when you’re stuck at home?
Self-Reg is life changing. It changed my life, and subsequently changed my children’s lives as well.
Dr. Stuart Shanker, the founder & CEO of The MEHRIT Centre, is an incredible individual with so much knowledge.
Learning the 5 steps to Self-Reg is a great starting point – reframe, recognize, reduce, reflect and restore. It’s one thing to know these steps, but practicing them in every day life is a game changer.
“There is no such thing as a bad kid”. – a quote from Dr. Stuart Shanker
When we see a child “melting down” it’s easy to jump to a conclusion and assume their behaviour is out of line. However, they’re responding to stress. What triggers one child, doesn’t necessarily trigger the next child. The key is to follow the 5 steps of Self-Reg to better understand the “why”.
Self-Reg allows us to evaluate our own behaviour in a different light, eventually allowing us to help others. It teaches us to thrive instead of just coping.
There is so much to say about Self-Reg and how it’s helped my children and I’s mental health.
Join Dr. Stuart Shanker and I in this interview where we explore the meaning of the 5 steps, take a look at Self-Reg in every day situations and learn how Self-Reg can help your mental health.
