We all want our kids to be a little more or a little less of something. It’s completely normal. So, I’m asking you to fill in the blank: “I want My Child to Be…” Now, when you have your answer, I want you to really consider whether you’re modeling the behavior that you want to see in your child.
The truth is, our kids don’t do what we say. They do what we do. Say you want your kids to be calm and gentle more of the time. You cannot expect to raise calm and gentle kids if you are not calm and gentle when things get stressful. Hearing this for myself hit me like a ton of bricks. And when I looked at my parenting and the parents around me, it all became so clear.
Tune in this week to discover how can we introduce new energies to our children, not through our words, but through our modeling. We all think we have a good idea of what not to do, but I’m asking you this week to dig a little deeper and see if you’re walking your talk and setting the kind of example you want your kids to follow.
