I have three children and each of them are incredibly different and demand me to be able to switch into their ‘zone’ each time we have something in their lives that they find challenging or that they want to challenge. It keeps me on my toes but I am forever grateful for each of their uniqueness and the lessons they teach me every day.
This past month or so I have been ‘tested’ on so many levels not least with helping my daughter unravel glandular fever which hit her like a ton of bricks this Christmas and my elder son challenging the school system and what he believes is restricting him from being the best version of him. Each of them came with challenges not least with my daughter and my own knowledge of the metaphysical side of health conditions and how I could guide her but not solve the root of the condition for her. And with my son, respecting that he is highly intelligent but that the current education system does not always allow for free thinkers or those that are able to think outside of the box.
We are not given a book on parenting and all too often our own guidance is not something we choose to follow ourselves, that is not to say that parents in the past were wrong, simply that as we evolve many of us have chosen to align with our own belief system and what works for our mind, body and soul.
What we must always remember however is that our children are not mini-me’s and we cannot choose the life they will lead when they are adults and if we are to ensure they too are able to live their lives well we must both lead from the front and allow them to learn for themselves.
What we can do however is teach them to be resilient and grounded. We can teach them to take responsibility for their actions and to own their lives 100% but most importantly we can teach them it is ok to be them and being human means we are perfectly imperfect.
