Know your intentions for your kids

Conscious parenting is all about intentionality. Acting with a purpose instead of simply reacting.

What do you want your kids to know about life and about themselves?

Do you know?

Write them down and put them somewhere you'll see them often.

Then you can mother everyday more consciously.

As you go about your daily life your intentions towards you kids will be foremost in your mind and will affect how you act and react with them.

A few ideas might be:

My intention is to help you:
  • Know that life is a journey to finding out who you really are
  • Expect to fall them get up again
  • Listen to all your emotions then choose how to act, not react
  • To know your inner power as well as your outer power
  • Be true to your heart
  • Listen to your intuition
  • Know that the end is just the beginning of something else
My intention as your parent is:
  • To act in a way that makes you feel that you can always come and talk to me and know that you will be heard
  • To see you for who you really are - not who I expect to see, who others see or the role you play in the family
  • To listen more and learn from you
  • To let you make mistakes and thus learn life's most important lessons
Always keep in mind that whilst you have a dream for your child, the universe also has a dream for her.

You may have to let your child travel a path that you as yet cannot even see.
But if you allow her the freedom, she will find her way.
