Parenting Our Future

Jan 4, 2022

Our mind has a constant stream of thoughts. Sometimes it seems like the thoughts come from a group of jerks who only want to judge you, put you down and tell you you aren’t good enough. How often have you told yourself you aren't a good enough parent? Too ugly, fat or dumb?

Where does this voice come from and why do we have this constant commentary? Dr. Amy Johnson is here to help us sort all of this out as she shares how our mind works. In fact, she says that NOTHING we think is actually true!

We have the most interesting conversation where we talk about:
Why our thoughts aren’t true
How you aren’t insecure, you just think you are
The real job of the brain
What happens when we over identify with our thoughts
How you can break free of your thoughts so you can live a life with more peace and joy!

For an excerpt from Amy’s previous book, “Being Human” you can download it from the Parent Toolbox.
