Today’s guest, Bonnie Harris, will talk with us about violence and its impact on our culture at large and the way we parent.
“When fear drives our parenting, it prevents us from connecting and knowing our child. It keeps us stuck in our heads, in the past or the future, unable to hear what our child hears. It keeps us in reaction.” Harris, Bonnie (2008-08-17). Confident Parents, Remarkable Kids (p. 54). F+W Media, Inc. Kindle Edition.

This frustration can result in parents “losing it”, which frequently results in violence and a rippling of violence which reverberates throughout our society.
"Violence is what happens when we cannot manage our own suffering."  ~ Parker Palmer
