How To Make Sense Of Our Child's Defense System

It leaves us baffled. We're having a good day, doing something they wanted to do, and suddenly they reject us, respond negatively, or become defensive. We could simply ask our child a question and the claws come out. It leaves us confused, defeated, and bewildered. 

And we often don't see it coming. How do we make sense of the metldowns, outbursts, and push-backs? 

In this episode we discuss our child's defense system, what causes them, and how to make sense of what we're seeing.
