Episode 50: Heartful Parenting Practice: Showing Up with the 4 S’s

Most of us wonder what we can do to raise happy, successful kids; the answers aren’t always obvious or easy! 

In this solo episode, we are digging into what the research shows about raising securely attached kiddos who thrive socially, emotionally, and cognitively from preschool through adulthood.

Not surprisingly, perhaps, the answer starts with us: how we show up is key. 

To help parents do that well, we’re talking today about the 4 S’s, which were developed through the brilliant work of Drs. Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson . 

The 4 S’s are a beautiful framework for thinking about what’s important and how we show up,  and provides parents with some clear, concrete strategies for ensuring that we are parenting with presence and connection. 

We can all help our children feel Safe, Seen, Soothed, and Secure; I’m sharing why it’s important, how to do it, and some successes and learning moments for me as a mom. 

As always, I would love to support you. If you need help with the 4 S’s or anything else in parenting, please reach out or come see how The Heartful Parent Academy can give you the support and sense of community you might need.
