Do what you can to eliminate the dreaded “Blow Out Fear.” Sometimes parents become so afraid of their children’s blow outs that they stop parenting. This is a problem of grand proportion.
If you stop parenting in favor of avoiding a child’s flipped lid, then you will be creating a tyrant whom you made by unconsciously accepting your child’s demands: “I want my way or I will huff and puff and blow this house down.” Sound familiar?
If you have “post-blow-out-stress-disorder,” get some help. Being on fearful high alert is going to drain your life force from you. You will become too tired and too weary to parent. Your child needs structure (also known as parenting) to heal from the narcissistic wounds of a troubled early childhood. Don’t give up. It takes a long time to grow corrective neuro-pathways.
