Do you find yourself battling with your child?
Witnessing fights between your kids, or even fighting with them yourself can make you feel anxious and out of control like you’re fighting a battle that no one really wins.
Experiencing that special brand of parental guilt that comes with losing it at your son or daughter?
Do you struggle to connect on a level other than a superficial one, leaving you unsure that you even know who your child is as a person?
And wishing you could get your kids off the screens and spend more time together as a family- but you get so much resistance from them that you’ve given up?
Do you feel like you’re failing because you don’t know how to make your kids feel worthy, supported, and loved, in spite of your best efforts and intentions?
Leaving you feeling isolated because you don’t know where to turn or how to put positive changes into practice?
Not knowing where to get support can leave you feeling isolated and alone; especially if you see your friends on Instagram seeming to have perfect lives with their kids.
If you answered yes to any of these, I imagine that you’re left feeling helpless, hopeless, and ready to give up.
Knowing that you need to make positive changes but not knowing what to change or how to change them can leave you with feelings of frustration.
Our society is in danger of raising a generation of adults who are unable to cope, leading to tragedy in more ways than one.
I know that as a parent, all you want is the very best for your children.
For them to be happy, healthy, and thriving.
To have a wonderful connection with them, with open communication and a harmonious household.
For your children to be carefree, exude confidence, and have a positive outlook on life.
Experts agree that children whose parents are engaged, supportive, and proactive are happier, more grounded, and often go on to lead more secure lives.
As a mother, I have felt those feelings of being out of control, not knowing how to handle my kids and their quirks and big feelings. It’s easy to get bogged down and I struggled to see the wood for the trees.
I have always been interested in how mindfulness and mindset affect our daily lives so I decided to apply that knowledge to the way I connect and interact with my kids. I started to see a real change, particularly in my eldest. Taking the time to meditate and talk with her every day has created a far deeper bond than I could have imagined.
Over the last year, I have felt compelled to share these techniques with others.
Changing the way children communicate will lead to a generation of adults who are able to communicate in a healthy way.
