Dr. Patti Ashley shares her thoughts, research and favorite quotes on re-parenting your own inner child for more effective parenting of your children.
Have you heard of "ancestral dna" as it relates to being a parent, or "heart-centered parenting" instead of the old paradigms of too strict or too permissive?
Do you know how your child is like a "packet of seeds with no label"? Listen to the podcast and find out more!

Dr. Patti Ashley is a best-selling author, speaker, psychotherapist and designer of Authenticity Architect which brings unique insight into the identification and treatment of trauma, shame, grief and dysfunctional family patterns.
