conscious parentingDo You Know Your ABC?

21 August 2021

Hello, dear conscious parent 💟!

Even though I had been a teacher for more than a decade before I became a mom, nothing prepared me for the acute responsibility I felt when my son was born. Also, no program, no schooling, and no degree had prepared me for the intense emotions of a young child.

I realized quickly that parents are left “in the dark” ( i.e., left to parent the way they were parented or the complete opposite – both with disastrous results), unless they take it upon themselves to learn and get equipped with tools. And so I did! My driving force was my core belief that:

a parent’s principal responsibility is to ensure that their child is being raised in an emotionally safe environment to express their feelings, needs, and wants so they can become the authentic individual they were born to be.

What do I need to know? – I asked myself.
Do you know what you need to know? – I’m asking you today.

I need to know my ABC – my own formula for conscious parenting.  At any given moment in our interaction with our children, ideally we would operate from these 3 letters: A-B-C. Here’s what they stand for.

A = Self- Awareness
B = Being Present
C = Connection

Self-Awareness helps us understand that our children are our perfect mirrors reflecting what we need to learn and heal.
Being Present is a mastery level of presence, attunement, resonance and trust- all in the present moment. When we are present, we are not attached to the past, and we are not fearful of the future.
Connection is what children need in order to flourish and reach their developmental potential.

Parenting by this formula is NOT easy, but it is the only way to create a life-long bond that is based in mutual trust, open communication and secure attachment.

So, I’m asking you again: Do you know your ABC? Where do you stand on each of these letters? What do you need to improve? Share it with me in my FREE WEBINAR FOR PARENTS on September 29 at 12PM EST. I can’t wait to see you there!
