Listen in as they explore deeply the challenges and blessings that go into parenting today.

Welcome, everyone. I’m so excited to be here with you. This is the SuperPower Mommas’ show and I’m your host, Laura Greco. I’m so excited to introduce a special guest, as we explore the topic, The Personal Growth Opportunity in Parenting. Tatiana Berindei is a beautiful person that I met only just a few short months ago. What really attracted me to her is her love of women in her work, especially with moms. How she helps them to reclaim their feminine power, embrace their sexuality in a profound and healthy way, and become more present in their bodies so that they can model it best to their children, and what this embodiment really looks like. Tatiana, I want to say welcome. Welcome to the show.

Thank you so much for that really sweet introduction. Thank you so much for having me.

Thank you. Thank you for coming. Would you like to expand a little bit on this? I’d love to know what your … Well let’s start with your superpowers, as we always do. What are your superpowers, Tatiana?

I like to cut straight to the truth

I like to cut straight to the truth.

Yeah. Well I have a lot of superpowers, as we all do, and I like to say that one my greatest superpowers that I use a lot with my clients is the ability to see directly to the root of a situation, and to address it directly instead of sort of beating around the bush. I like to cut straight to the truth. In terms of parenting, how that cascades over into my parenting is definitely useful with my daughter. I only have one child right now, but, yeah, I tend to know what’s going on with her, especially like if she’s having some emotional outburst. One of the things that I really appreciate about that superpower, and how I can address my parenting with it, is that I can go right to what she’s actually frustrated about.

A lot of times kids get frustrated, and it looks like they’re frustrated about one thing, but there’s really something else emotionally going on that either they’re picking up in the environment, something that’s going on between their parents and they’re acting it out, they’re playing it out. It might look just like, “Oh the tomato fell on the floor,” but really there’s a larger thing happening. So that’s how I use that superpower specifically in my parenting, but also with clients.

I love that.

Yeah.

I love that, and it is so true. I raised four girls of my own, and yeah, there can be a lot of emotional things going on. My girls, anyway, had that, but usually there was something underlying, yeah, and I guess that’s really true of us mommas too, right?

Yeah, it’s really true of everybody, but kids are just louder about it with their expressions.

Yeah, and they’re sort of like our little mirrors, aren’t they?

Oh my god, I remember when my daughter was … she was just starting to like walk around and talk a little bit, and it was like she would reflect exactly what I was thinking. It’s not like I was saying something and she would parrot it back to me like the swears that the parents think the kids aren’t hearing or whatever. It’s like your kids will definitely reflect back to you the language that you’re using, but it was to the level of thought, and I was like, “Oh, man, I can’t get away with anything anymore. I have to be really on point.”

Yeah, but it really speaks to the fact that they do reflect us don’t they?

Oh yeah. Yeah.
