Conscious Parenting is your greatest gift!
As a conscious parent, you can profoundly alter your child’s life in a positive way.
Leaving behind the kind of legacy that you can be proud of, along with a happy, healthy, and thriving family to share your love with.
Only If, you were willing to create it, rather than hope it will happen on its own.
That gift is already within you, waiting to be discovered and gifted away.
One of the greatest gifts you can give your children, is to own-up to your shortcomings.
Your children already know you’re not perfect, so why not just own it?
Owning-up means to acknowledge, and take responsibility for all the areas in your parenting, in which you still need to improve.
Here are some examples:
I admit that:
- I have made some mistakes
- I don’t have all the answers
- I have some fears that I still need to overcome
- I don’t always know how to open up and express myself the way I should
- I have to learn how to trust you more
- I don’t always give in when I am wrong
- I have to let go of some control
- I don’t always apologize when I hurt you
- I have to learn how to communicate more effectively
- I don’t always have the patience to teach you, the way in which you need from me
- I have to listen more, and be more compassionate rather than judgmental
Can you imagine your parents owning-up to any of these with you; when you were young?
Do you think it would have changed the dynamic in your relationship?
Lets face it, as parents we all have more work to do within ourselves, to better help our children develop into powerful, passionate, authentic leaders in the world.
For many of us, we seem to lack the courage to be so humble, to be so egoless, and vulnerable enough to reveal ourselves so intimately.
However, there is always room for improvement when it comes to our next level of parenting.
The question is, do you have the courage to discover more of your parenting potential?
The next level of parenting, is what I call conscious parenting.
Conscious parenting is not about being perfect, it’s about being 100% honest, 100% authentic, highly aware, living in the present moment, connecting deeply with your children, and communicating effectively.
Conscious parenting is about giving up the facade that you have everything under control, or even that you know, what is best for your children.
It’s about letting them see you learn, discovering and growing inner-personally, while giving them the space to figure out who they are, and defining their own life’s purpose.
Conscious parenting is ultimately about figuring out how to become the parent that your kids need from you, so they develop healthy mindsets, and the emotional stability to help them access more of their full potential.
Todays youth are very advanced, and they are living in an advanced world; desperately in need of a life mentor, an advocate, someone to believe in them, and champion their greatness.
Why not have that person be you?
There is absolutely no-one, more qualified to be that power of influence in your child’s life, than you.
But… just because you are the most qualified doesn’t mean that you will automatically get that privilege, or even keep that privilege.
With today’s youth, that spot has to be earned! And earning it is the name of the game.
