I’ve been reading “no bad kids” by Janet Lansbury (she has a podcast and website too) and it’s helping. Basically goes along w Paris story’s post (although she seems to be MUCH BETTER at it than I am so far). I honestly just take a deep breath and let my (almost) 2yo let it all out, tell her I understand she’s upset bc xyz and try to explain to the best of my abilities. Still a work in progress but I’ve found the book pretty helpful and a pretty easy read
