♥︎ These are the C’s that help prevent disconnection and/or encourage reconnection.
Choose a C when you're feeling stressed to help you feel safe again.
Let go of control and grab hold of….
ꕥ Connection: feeling seen, heard, understood, and appreciated. Feeling a safe sense of belonging to self and others.
ꕥ Compassion: noticing the pain or discomfort in another and moving to express kindness and support. Self-compassion is the gift of doing this for oneself.
ꕥ Coregulation: The ability to regulate through the comfort of another is called coregulation. This on repeat wires the brain for self-regulation, emotional intelligence, empathetic responses, rational thinking & problem-solving.
ꕥ Curiosity: is another C I love. Becoming curious about what the cause of our child’s (or our own) dysregulation is. What are we needing, feeling, or believing?
ꕥ Care: attention, protection, affection, or solution necessary for the welfare of someone or something.
ꕥ Conscious: choosing awareness of sensations, emotions, thoughts, and behavior and practicing responding with our highest intention.
ꕥ Communication: expressing and empathizing with feelings, needs, beliefs, and respectful requests as we honor one another’s rights and lives.
ꕥ Choice: feeling a sense of selfhood and intrinsic motivation is empowering and connecting.
ꕥ Cooperation: working together for the same end.
