To apologize and to forgive others and yourself.
To teach what’s right and correct mistakes.
To nurture with compassion and healthy food starting from birth.
To make time to be together as a family and one-on-one. Treasure these times.
To be a role model in all life brings your way…your children watch how you handle challenges, how you celebrate, how you treat others.
To be your child’s cheerleader. Make a habit of noticing all that’s right about your children and what they’re doing.
To know your child better than anyone else. How does he feel love? What does she need from you when approaching melt-down?
To be true to yourself and raise your children the way you see fit and stand by your decisions.
My advice to all parents is to be gentle, loving and playful. Be like a child again. And be strong and clear.
We all long for some order and limits in life. We can teach our children now how to manage life, live life, love life as they grow and change into their own adult selves. Really, just love your children to the best of your abilities.
