It's easy to think that childhood fears are silly and irrational, but have you considered that there is a fear that drives both children and adults to behave or respond in extreme ways?
Maybe you get angry and react irrationally at an innocent comment.
Or you notice a child throw themselves to the floor when asked to do a simple task.
Or you have a co-worker sabotage your team project when they don't get the recognition they think they deserve.
Listen as Lynn, Shay and Austin discuss an underlying fear that hides beneath the surface of many problematic behaviors - the fear of abandonment and losing connection.
After listening you’ll get an idea of what feeds this fear, what calms this fear and how you can manage this fear in your own life and as a parent.
