In this episode, we have a coaching episode with Stephanie. Stephanie is the mom of two kids, Felix, who’s 18 months, and Thomas, who’s nine. 

Stephanie shared with me before we recorded that Thomas is an amazing, curious, strong willed, more extra 2E kid. She explains how he watches her and also triggers her, which invites her to work hard on her own self regulation and self compassion (as we dive into in our conversation).
