In this episode of the Peaceful Parenting Podcast, I sit down with Christy, a mother of two boys, for a coaching episode. 

We discuss the challenges Christy has faced with her older son, Jay, in terms of emotional regulation, sibling rivalry, and self-deprecating behavior. We talk about Christy’s nurturing approach and understanding towards Jay’s needs and I offer strategies to improve their relationship.

The importance of one-on-one time, being neutral during sibling fights, and indirect discussions about feelings are highlighted as well.
