“Wait! Whoa! Slow down there! Are you sure you want to try that?”
Do you recognize when your Lizard Brain takes over?
Your Lizard Brain is that little voice that whispers in your ear telling you that you are not good enough (“oh man, I may actually BE the worst parent EVER”) and reminds you of all the risks waiting around the corner to bury you. It shouts "I wouldn't DO that!" when you attempt to do something challenging...like (ahem) being vulnerable as a parent, apologizing, or just being real with your kids and partner.
Is your Lizard Brain helping or obstructing you?
Robert and Nicole discuss how they deal with their Lizard Brain and the difference between being brave and being fearless. How do you raise confident children while also keeping them safe?
Bonus question: What can you do to help your kids deal with their Lizard Brain trying to hold them back?
