Ep. 252 – Parenting Triggers
May 1, 2023
In the special segment “Big Topic,” Shanna and Laura dive into the subject of parenting triggers. They talk about the situations and behaviors that automatically fire up strong feelings, explore how their triggers are related to their own childhoods and discuss ways of handling these reactions in the present. Also, Shanna talks about getting her four-year-old a developmental screening, and Laura discusses weaning her four-year-old. Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s kids are 4 and 7 years old, and Laura’s kids are 4 years old and 2 years old.
