relationship, and what to do about it. Let your Nurturing Parent build trust by
telling the Inner Child how it will fulfill the Child's requests.

its feelings out with your non-dominant hand. With your dominant hand, let your
Nurturing Parent respond with love and encouragement. This is an excellent
exercise to do whenever you are feeling discontented or confused. Often, it is
at these times that your Inner Child is feeling either ignored or criticized by
your Inner Parent.
