Adulting - Your Adult Brain vs. Your Toddler Brain

Posted by Evie Shafner, LMFT on Aug 21, 2019 11:11:00 AM

Did you ever notice that when you get triggered by your partner, you start blaming, denying, and defending? Or, even exhibiting tantrums? Well, as soon as you do, your partner meets you at that place and raises you. It’s not your fault, this is a strong brain habit. So much so, the science says that being grabbed by this part of the brain takes less than a blink of the eye. This reactive behavior is called our Toddler Brain, and if you’ve seen any toddlers in your life, you know why.  

So while we don’t want to shame ourselves for acting this way, it’s the bias of our fight or flight brain, if we want our relationship to stay connected, safe, and loving, we have to learn how to access our adult brain at the moment of stress. The good news is that we can, and when we do we feel so much better about ourselves.
