What if someone....
followed you around
FAITH and BELIEVE
in your GOODNESS,
What if your parents gave you the gift
of guiding your behavior with 100% faith in you?
That would be your inner voice today.
Always secure and confident in who you are.
Didn't get that parental gift when you were little?
It's never too late
to give the gift
of believing in oneself
and your children.
We talk a lot about Positive Intent
in the Parenting for the Next Generation community,
and Positive Discipline's
(which parents call magic!)
It can all begin with this easy phrase:
You can do it!
And to celebrate accomplishments, successes, & happy moments:
You did it!
In real life,
"You can do it!"
might sound like....
* You did it! You finished the puzzle!
* Time to clean up/ do homework. You can do it.
(Then break the task down into smaller pieces and/or
get started to help them get moving.)
* When it's time to leave the store, we can do it
peacefully and quietly. If you need help, ask me.
Positive Parenting is scaffolding:
one positive communication tool
(that feels good to say & hear)
---to motivate and bring out the best
in yourself and your children,
while teaching like skills.
Give "You can do it!" a try,
and let us know how it goes!
Remember the power of
tone of voice & facial expressions.
Embody that faith, belief, & trust
with your whole self.
Positive parenting is a practice,
an art form, and a community
of conscious parents.
Join the movement.
And this week,
wishing you the power of
unconditional faith + belief
in yourself and your children.
You can do it!
Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
