How do we know if a child is deliberately testing their boundaries versus having a fight-flight-freeze stress response? If you’ve wondered about these things, you’re in luck because in this Mindful Mama Podcast episode I talk to Mona Delahooke, author of Brain-Body Parenting: How to Stop Managing Behavior and Start Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids.
