Find out your parenting style with my parent personality quiz!
When we cultivate a place for rest in our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual being – we are more patient, more in control of our thoughts and actions, more purposeful in what we say and do, and we create a stable and peaceful environment around us.
My aim is to shake you awake to the realities of the world that your child is living in so you know how best to protect and teach them to be aware. That is one of your most sacred roles as a parent! Until your child begins to understand how to protect themselves as an adolescent and young adult, this responsibility lands on you.
Now, I know that many of you reading this may feel like you’re failing in your role, you’re scared of not providing enough for your family, you’re afraid you’re turning into your dad, or you feel so out of touch with what is going on with your kids that you’re scared to dive in. This blog is for you – because the special gift that I’m talking about is something each of you already possesses.
This is unquestionably one of the most important issues you as a parent will navigate while your children are growing up. While a lot of the information I’m about to share is sobering (and I won’t sugarcoat the realities of what your kids are facing), you better believe I am going to encourage you because the biggest influence on your child’s mental health is YOU.
This Mother’s Day, I want you to give yourself some gifts. These aren’t necessarily material things (though I love chocolate and jewelry as much as the next woman!), these are gifts that will help pave the way for you to experience more joy, peace and contentment in your role as mom.
