Welcome To The La La Tigers blog

A glorious collection of musings from founder and MaMa TIger, Rachel Davis. Because perspective is everything.

Raising children who are honest kind and brave.

 

Connection, compassion, courage - I call this The Circle of Raar!
And as I teach in my programmes, it needs to be gone around first for yourself, to be a wholehearted human.

The biggest gift you give to your kids is the gift of self-awareness.

Why Time-Outs Don't Work!

 

Do you use time-outs? In the West we're so often encouraged to use these, and to leave our children to cry...we can seem almost 'anti-child' in some ways!

The connection and relationship that you have with your child is central to their emotional and psychological wellbeing. The biggest gift you'll ever give your child is your presence and connection.

What we do not heal, we transfer to our children

 

One of the easiest ways to disconnect from pain is to disconnect from our bodies. Yet this leads to emotional dysregulation that can spiral out of control. Numbing behaviours show up in all sorts of ways, from substance addiction to scrolling addiction, from shopping to gambling to eating and more. Denial is one of the strongest things to break. 

What is required of us as adults is to model real self-care, so where do we begin when we're breaking the cycle of trauma and consciously learning this for ourselves?

Watch, and let me know what this brings up for you.

It's All Inside!

 

Of all the things you want for your children, happiness and confidence are always at the top of the list you tell me you wish for.

Enjoy this video from the archive! [12min watch, perfect with a cuppa].


As parents and early educators we have an amazing opportunity to guide the beliefs that children hold about themselves, that are formed on a 95% unconscious basis before the age of seven.

Parenting isn’t about mastering your child, it’s about mastering your mind. You don’t have a behaviour problem, you have a thinking problem…because we cannot control anybody else but ourselves. We’re in a relationSHIP, and the way that you change your ship is to change yourself.


Personal freedom involves doing things differently, thinking differently, feeling differently. Personal freedom takes courage. And it starts with changing your thinking. Everything starts with the inner work. Personal freedom starts by taking the journey within.

Thoughts Drive Feelings

 

Happiness...it doesn't come from stuff or external validation. It comes from inside. So how do we tap into, or generate it? Beliefs are the engines that drive thoughts, thoughts drive feelings and feelings drive behaviour.

Fear of What Others Think Of Us

 

Fear of what other people think of us keeps us small, and can lead us to hide parts of ourselves or avoid taking steps towards the life we desire. It can lead us to perfectionism, or people-pleasing, and ultimately doesn't serve us. So, what is the antidote? Watch, and let me know what this brings up for you.

Emotional Dysregulation Reframed

 

Emotional dysregulation in our kids and ourselves can show up as 'difficult' behaviour, early trauma leaves the body's nervous system constantly on alert for threat. Try changing your perception to see they/we are just having a difficult time instead.
