Your children are wonderful gifts, precious gifts. You need to cherish them as such. SEE them for who they are, not for what you want them to be! Watch, listen, observe. Hear what they are trying to tell you. Don’t assume, ask. When a child has a tantrum, let go of that feeling of hopelessness born from the desire of wanting to fix this. Instead, step away in your mind, detach from your agenda of wanting to make it go away, come down to his level, hug him gently and ask “what are you trying to tell me? I’m here for you.”… and watch the tantrum pass. The tantrum is not about you, it’s about your child desperately trying to connect, overwhelmed with emotions he can’t sort, he’s asking for your help, he is not doing this to you. Be present.
Become a conscious parent and see your children thrive. Co-create with your child. It is a dance. Be open to learn from your children. They will grow you up.
