"I found it very interesting and useful to reflect on how I respond to stress and what little changes could help with that. It has made me think that rather than focusing on what stresses my children, I also need to be aware of my own triggers. In recognising how hard it can be to inhibit my own behaviour, I feel/hope I might be more empathetic to my son."
