If I had my time again I would have adopted some powerfully positive, proactive practices into my life and the lives of my Children – but the past is past and now I feel I am privileged to be able to see things in a new light. I have, throughout my journey, gained more and more wisdom about respecting the thoughts and feelings of others and have become consumed by what CAN make a difference !!!!
As we embark on the journey of Parenthood we have given to us a responsibility not to be taken lightly. . We need to learn positive qualities and respect each person as a soul. We have all come to here to learn from each other. When it is loved ones, it can be a bit up hill. Our ultimate aim is to achieve harmony and peace inside us and carry it out into our family.
In teaching your children all those good qualities mentioned before, you will finally have a mature adult who respects and loves him or herself, and will do the same for you and others and our planet.
Train your children to look inside for their information. It is all inside us. We must learn to tap into our source to find our own power to just be.
Your children learn by your example. When you give them understanding they see that life is no big deal. The way to bring up your children is by being an example to them. Be yourself always and allow your children to be themselves as well. If they see that you always discern a problem without making a fuss about it or make a “Federal case” out of things, they will learn to do the same. When you are cool and calm, you learn from every situation, and you know there is always a solution.
Understand that children are old souls in new bodies. Therefore they do understand you. They always need explanations of your actions towards them. For instance, if you say, “Get out of here,” without telling them why, the experience will create the fear of rejection in them. They will then do things for everybody else just to be accepted all their life.
Always be consistent and children will know what to expect of you. It is better to be a consistently “bad” parent than to be inconsistent. One way one day and another the next will send the child into total confusion.
From the time your child is born you need to show that baby you that you are in charge. When you enforce your guidelines consistently with room to grow, you will not need harsh discipline later in life. It is your house and your rules that are to be abided by while the child is here to learn from you.
Speak to your children as a soul. Do not speak down to them. Remember how it feels to be little and how big a person looks to them. If you respect them, they will respect you.
