"I felt embarrassed. Everyone was staring but instead of punishing and yelling at her, we sat down and breathed through our tough emotions to calm down our minds and body."

"I told her she wasn't bad or naughty, she was struggling to control these big feelings and that I was on her side," she continued. "Trying to break the cycle one breath at a time."


The heartfelt video left fans emotional.

"This is beautiful. Thank you for breaking cycles. The world needs more people like you," one person commented.

"I had such a hard day yesterday with my three-year-old, ended up in tears myself, just knew I could do better. This is what I needed to see," another person shared.

"Tammin. This made me so emotional. As a mum of a 3-year-old... and a 13-year-old who are both experiencing massive overwhelming emotions this just reminded me how beautiful it is to be the one on their team helping them learn these skills. Choosing to parent this way is so powerful and so beautiful. I just love this video," another fan said.
