This is an absolutely beautiful reflection of parenting and nurturing communication. I appreciate how willing you are to evaluate your mistakes as a parent and try again without being too hard on yourself.
This is an amazing skill to have.
As an energy healer also, I know exactly what you mean about our natural tendency to amplify energy. It definitely takes mindfullness, concentration, self-love, and skill to navigate high emotions when we ourselves are so tuned into the emotions of others.
