What if the problem isn’t how your child handles a challenge? What if the problem is how you perceive the way they handle it?
What if a child needs our trust + encouragement more than our constant criticism + correction?
What if we took some time to really reflect on WHY it makes us so uncomfortable when they don’t perform, react or respond the way we wish?
What if children didn’t have to carry the weight of their parents expectations? Could they fully flourish, unaltered by the hurts, failures or wounds of those who came before them? Would they be set free? 🕊 I believe so.
Children are much more capable at facing changes + hurdles + all the things life throws their way when they have a team of people behind them who say “you got this, I trust you.” This doesn’t mean you don’t guide or model, this doesn’t mean they won’t fall or make mistakes, this doesn’t mean you don’t seek outside help if needed… it means you leave your baggage out of it. That work is yours, not theirs to handle.
When someone else believes in you, you’re more likely to believe in you. Kids are no different. Does your child feel + know you believe in them?
Thursday I’m diving into this topic of T R U S T during our Conscious Mama’s free zoom workshop. I’ll share ways you can reclaim your own self trust, as well as practical rituals to extend authentic trust to your child. Mtg link + entire series recordings will go out to all signed up on my email list (link in bio.) Next week, we will focus on boundaries in the CMC.
