PRESSING THE RESET ON ‘YOUR PARENT’S’ PARENTING STYLE [EP 9]
Sh*t! I can’t believe I just said that!! I sounded JUST like my dad. (And not in a good way)
When I caught myself “shame” lecturing Ayaan just like my dad used to do to me, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
How did I succumb to the same poor parenting choices as my parents EVEN though I promised myself I would NEVER do that?
Well mama, if you’ve ever had a embarrassing parenting moment like that don’t be too hard on yourself.
What we experienced as children is encoded in our DNA. So when we don’t have new strategies or solutions, we instinctly go back to the only default we know. What our parents said or did to us in tough discipline moments.
But there is great news.
Like Maya Angelou says “When you know better, you do better.” When you learn new parenting strategies and stay committed on the path to keep practicing them, you’ll create new patterns.
Patterns you are more proud of.
And that’s what today’s episode is all about. Breaking our parent’s parenting style thats encoded in us, and embracing mindful parenting.
NO it’s not permissive parenting, or letting your kids get away with throwing spagehtti on the walls. And it’s certainly not always being peaceful, perfect and meditating in a corner while your kids beat each other up.
Let me give you the scoop on what mindful parenting is all about.
If you are looking for different tools to be a more present, patient and peaceful parent.
This EP is for YOU!
