Welcome to my Raising Wholehearted Children series of blogs! 🙅🔥
In this 4-part blog series, I want to share with you how I’ve learned to live deeply into my own truth and personal growth, how I bring this into my parenting and how I introduce these topics to my own children so that you can do the same.
The goal for the next 4 blogs is to help you take some simple and actionable steps to parent with more awareness and less overwhelm, so that you can build an incredible relationship with your child, based on mutual respect and understanding.
Now, as much as I’d love to say you’ll never lose your shizzle again, just by reading this series, that simply wouldn’t be true and isn’t something anyone can guarantee you. Even me.
But what I can guarantee you, however, is that these emails will help you put some things into perspective and help you in the creation of a solid foundation for your child that is best for you and your child.
For after all and in the words of the great Monty Python, we are all individuals!
So without further ado, let’s dive into this first one…
Raising Wholehearted Children Step 1 - Get Clear On Your Intention.
Ok, so the first step has everything to do with starting with the end goal in mind, for the intention will always determine the outcome.
#1: Not having a clear idea of what values are important to you, or the kind of relationship you want to have is a problem that most parents have, despite knowing that they really want to.
Life is crazy busy babes, but if you don’t take a step back to work out where you want this parent / child relationship’ to go, then you are left relying on your own subconscious mind and early programming to run the show on autopilot.
This is great, if you had a great model for this through the way you were parented, or if your child doesn’t have any other challenges.
If you’re like most people and this is not the case, or even if you just want to do things better than that, then parenting on autopilot is a recipe for complete disaster.
Please raise your hand if you’ve found yourself turning into your own mother / father and saying all the things your parents said to you, without even stopping to question if it’s a) relevant, or b) how you actually want to raise your own child?
So what's the first tip I want to share and how can becoming intentional help you become the parent you really want to be?
Firstly, you have to get really clear on the values that are important to you as a family and get clear on the relationship you want as an “ideal ” outcome. Spend some time thinking about how a parent like this would interact and how raising a child who loves, trusts and believes in themselves would impact not just your own relationship and inner circle, but every other person that they come into contact with. (Let’s not forget that all important ripple effect.)
Love this? Awesome sauce. I’ve got some more Raarsome tips for you coming in the next blog, so do make sure you keep an eye out.
