I so whole-heartedly believe that hitting, shaming, power play, and punishments have no role in my life – and especially in raising the ones to walk this planet next. It doesn’t take a yogi to see that.
It doesn’t matter if someone’s drowing in 5 feet of water or 100 feet – they end up pretty dead either way. We must stop rating our pain and trauma as if it was a competition.
so assess what’s going on, stay conscious of the story you tell around it, but allow yoruself to stay kind with your experience.
