Patience is not the best goal in parenthood. We will opt to stuff down our real feelings and sacrifice our peace to pretend to have patience. When we learn to hold space for our emotions and needs as well as those of our child, we have a chance to be intentional instead of just reactive.

Irene Shares:

  • When we learn to tap into our own self-awareness we open the door for change.
  • Expectations rephrased as preferences creates the opportunity for multiple outcomes instead of just one

My favorite part of the conversation is when we were sharing our stories of how our own kids demonstrate what they’ve learned from us modelling this level of self respect and conscious interactions


 Tools you can add to your toolbox after this episode:

  • Tapping into yourself to change the energy in your family and parenting.

Meet Irene McKenna

I empower mamas just like you to build an emotional toolbox so they can create a new language of self-love and compassion.

I understand how important it is to cultivate a life filled with peace, joy, and loving connection.

Through my own journey, and in working with clients, I believe that self-awareness is the foundation for which everything flows. It is the conduit to the deep connection that fosters cooperation.

It is the key that unlocks the chains of reactivity.

When we work together, I’ll guide you back to love and help you step into an empowered version of yourself through my Quantum S.E.L.F. model. This is the catalyst through which you create a ripple effect out into your family, and this will create a change in your child’s behavior as well. 

If you’re ready to experience calm, foster connection, change the trajectory of your family, and fall in love with motherhood, then I want to invite you to Find Your Bliss.
