Parenting mistakes for which you can let yourself off the hook

hello welcome to another Tuesday I’m Dr. Laura Dabney and we’ve been talking about parenting all month and we’ve been talking about things not to do as a parent things that look like a good idea but not to do as a parent so today I want to talk to you about things you can let go of as a parent the guilt over some mistake you may have made as a parent and how to let that go because guilt excessive guilt inappropriate guilt you can get in the way of your relationship with your child right if you’re feeling like you have to make something up or you have to explain or get them to finally I don’t know let you off the hook that’s gonna put a burden on your child that they don’t need so you can do this yourself and I’m gonna walk you through a couple of those but just again as a brief intro I’m dr. Laura Dabney a relationship psychiatrist and typically I deal with executive or professional men who are struggling with some relationship themselves but here I like to say I’m opening my door up to all of you anybody who is struggling with an emotional problem and still has trouble picking up that bone so I’m gonna step into your place or you can virtually step into my place and see what this is all about and see how I do things and hopefully that will ease you into treatment with somebody when you’re ready okay so today the parenting the guilt oh such a tough job that you can’t leave and people’s lives depend on it so pretty tricky so what are these subjects or problems that people come to me with baby themselves up and I’m trying to say no no no that’s it’s not as big a problem as you’re making it out one is the general topic of a loss of control so let’s say you may be yelled at your child or maybe you showed a strong emotion you know about something else they like you were angry at your spouse or an argument spilled over or you punched them for a longer time than you think you should have something like that where you let a little bit of overboard and you wish you hadn’t instead of beating yourself up over that remember …
