Understanding Emotional Neglect and Abuse as a Parent

In our research, we found that a significantly high number of TCKs have reported experiencing emotional abuse and/or neglect. We believe that this occurrence stems from a lack of parent’s awareness about what these things are and how to be an emotionally safe space for their children. In this 3-hour workshop, we’re going to explore what Emotional Abuse and Emotional Neglect is, what those behaviors look like, how they can accidentally slip into our parenting, and most importantly how to prevent that from happening. We’ll talk about generational cycles and empower you to be cycle-breakers!
