"I loved it. I appreciated the warm, non-shaming delivery first and foremost. Your humility in sharing how you have struggled with these things yourself and encouragement that it isn't easy and takes practice and then practical suggestions for how to practice i.e., facial expressions, imagining the feelings, and phrases that might be applied in a situation requiring empathy.
I have been using the techniques with my own boys and husband. I've seen a lot of improvement in squelching frustration and anger on my kids parts when they complain about their circumstances and instead of lecturing them I say, 'man, that's sounds so tough,' or 'How frustrating!' Vs. 'If you had set your alarm clock, you wouldn't be in this situation.'"
