It feels so good to stay open and loving, calm and centered. Your children can see and sense this.
Unfortunately we are all prone to repeat the past. Your childhood experiences come with you into adulthood and then they play out in all of your relationships, especially the intimate ones. There is nothing more intimate than parenting to rock your center, trigger your reactivity and rob you of your presence.
This simple acts of love and connection have a powerful effect on their neurophysiology, interrupting the negative neural pathway formation and replacing it with positive pathways that build their self esteem and confidence. It is particularly important in the last 20 minutes of each day when kids are integrating their day. This helps kids thrive when they wake up feeling safe, loved, and belonging.
Full disclosure… I’m not yet a parent, but I love kids and want to give them every chance to grow up resourced, so I support parents to be more present and centered with themselves first, so that they can be more present with their children.
It is so great to feel less reactivity to your kids, less shutting them down, less losing your temper and less seriousness. You can welcome in more openness, more curiosity to the quirky things they say and do, more appreciation of their wisdom, more ease, flow and fun together.
One 90-minute call will help you center within yourself so you can better meet your children in each moment with loving kindness.
