126 Regulation in parents and helping our children grow – with Andrea Pollack

126 Regulation in parents and helping our children grow – with Andrea Pollack

“We want to be in a position to allow children to borrow our calm” – says Andrea Pollack in Episode 126 of Functional Nutrition and Learning for Kids.

Today we are talking about something we don’t address often enough – and that is regulation in a parent! There is so much discussion about regulation in our kids, but we know co-regulation is a thing, and I am really happy to be chatting about this today in my podcast.

Join me in this conversation with Andrea Pollack of Autism Parent Solutions to see what it is that helps Moms regulate – how can we support our children’s regulation and help them grow.

It turns out that a lot of Learning and Regulation Strategies have many similar roots. Feel free to download my free book on 6 strategies that support Learning and Regulation – at www.functionalnutritionforkids.com/learning
