It’s time for a shot of energy and easy tips to boost your parenting.
*Connecting with our kids and building relationship.
It is a constant dance between the deep/impactful relationships we create with our kids vs. the boundaries, limits, and firmness we are called to enforce when they test and stretch us. That being said, children are very attuned to the energy we’re emitting. They “know” in a very real and intuitive way when we’re being phony vs. genuine. They know when we’re taking a sincere interest in who they are, what they’re doing, what they’re curious about. They know when we’re just passing the time, not paying attention, disinterested in what they have to offer in that moment.
So, the POWER of our parenting comes in how we RESPOND rather than REACT to our children’s temperaments and tantrums. Do we have our own adult tantrum?
Our energetic vibe, the way in which we choose to manage a challenge / conflict / stressor is where we need to take responsibility. It is within our role, power and capacity to lead in a way that fosters the basic human conditions of our children being heard, validated and worthy. We create the dynamic that’s more compassionate, patient and mindful and it will inevitably be returned.
Have a great rest-of-the-week and stay tuned for another shot of energy next week!
