Most parents do NOT realize this but… When you first become a parent, you never just have ONE child.
There’s another child – desperately longing for the same love, care, encouragement, respect and comfort that you already give your children standing in front of you.
That other child is you – your “Inner Child”.
You sacrifice everything to give your children a better childhood, education and life than you ever had growing up.
But have you neglected your own Inner Child in the process?
Were you even aware that you had an Inner Child that needs nurturing?
And here’s the greatest tragedy of it all:
The neglect you show to your Inner Child will eventually come full-circle.
And your children will inherit your same childhood insecurities, doubts and fears, which you’ve worked so hard to shield them from.
So ask yourself honestly (and this may be the most important question you’ll ever ask yourself about how you parent)…
Are You Unconsciously Projecting Your Own Unmet
Childhood Needs On Your Children?
99% of parents today are ‘flying blind’.
We’re completely clueless about parenting.
And it’s not your fault.
You were told that being a good parent will come to you naturally.
“You’ll know what to do when the time comes.”
But don’t you find it crazy that raising your own children – the most important and challenging job we will ever undertake in life – should just be left to… ‘instincts’?
You wouldn’t start driving without first passing your driver’s license, would you?
Yet most parents never learn “how to parent”. So for many of us, we fall back on the only experience we have: How our parents raised us.
And if that fails, we turn to the endless stream of online articles for the newest and latest parenting advice that inevitably go out of fashion, or is contradicted by the next new article – leaving us even more exasperated and confused.
Conscious Parenting however, is not about rigid techniques or strategies.
And the greatest thing we can ever do as parents is to get to the core of who we are so we can show up ‘whole’ to our children and create a connection with your child that he or she secretly craves.
