Show Notes

Episode 9 features one of our best parenting tools! ETC's Parent Training Courses happen all over the globe and we thought it the perfect time to share one of tools taught in the course! Mo and Tona Ottinger join us to talk about what it means to 'Catch it Low' - how to spot disregulation on the horizon and use some simple practices to help deescalate the situation and bring regulation back to the brain. 

Mo talks for a few minutes about the 'upstairs and downstairs brain' - for one of the best explanations of how the brain works, check out Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson's book The Whole Brain Child!
