“Whatever shows up in the parent as a trigger is not showing up because of any external event. It’s showing up because of a past wound that the parent has not parented within themselves.” – Dr. Shefali


Today’s guest is none other than best-selling author and psychologist, Dr. Shefali. Her new book, The Parenting Map, and this conversation are for anyone raising a kid in this scary social media-driven environment.
