Unresolved issues from your childhood will, most certainly, impact who you are as a parent. It's important to remember that issues from your childhood don't just stop when childhood ends. They leave a legacy. They ultimately determine who you will be as an adult and how you build relationships with people. Ultimately, how you build your relationship with your child. Most of our unresolved issues with our parents are due to relational experiences with our parents. In order to correct those, I recommend that you actually do those within a relationship as well. It is important that you seek the help of a therapist or a counselor, whether it is in group therapy, individual therapy, parenting, whatever it may be. Really try to work on and heal these issues before they impact the relationship you have with your child.

Therapist

When her son was born, Aimee found herself in uncharted waters. She knew she wanted to be a different type of parent than her parents had been. After years of self-exploration, she felt she had healed a lot of her childhood emotional wounds and that she could be a good mother but she didn't really know how to parent differently. She went to Mommy and Me classes, breastfeeding groups, you name it, searching to fill a void she initially could not identify. They were all helpful but not what she felt she was longing for. She realized she was looking for a safe place to really talk about the challenges she was facing every day. Unfortunately, it seemed that none of the forums she found as a new mother were able to provide that. She vowed then to create such a place for parents, and the idea for Parenting Discovery Center was born.

Her educational background in psychology had nurtured her tremendous curiosity about the impact and importance of infant attachment. Her research in this area had equipped her with a conscious sieve to help evaluate the overwhelming amount of parenting advice available. What she found was that at a time of total vulnerability, parents are often taught parenting techniques that cause them to unwittingly undermine this important and essential bond. 

The Center provides a safe and supportive environment for exploring the emotions and challenges faced by new parents. They are also here to help peoople understand the importance of attachment and help parents build a conscious bond with their baby based upon their individual family's values and lifestyle.
