Parents Look Within to Trigger Oxytocin
It is critical for parents to be able to see the fear and stress within themselves. When parents can be a witness to their own stress, they have a greater ability to calm themselves. If fear or stress is present, they can take a few deep breaths become regulated. This turns on their oxytocin response. As the parent becomes calm they are able to handle their child’s fear and stress and then assist the child in triggering their oxytocin response. My other articles and newsletters on fear are available to you as a free resource. My book, Christian Parent Wisdom is an excellent resource that combines stress model principles with scriptures in a daily meditation format.
