The more the outside world is unstable, chaotic, divided, and confusing, the more our children need a stable, harmonious, and loving environment at home.
Therefore, it is essential for us, parents, to empower ourselves to use the tools that help us connect with our inner strength, intuition, and wisdom; without getting distracted and discouraged by the noise around us.
The world’s overwhelming problems often override and undermine the role of a parent. But it is the unhealed wounds of neglect, abuse, isolation, and the feeling of not being enough from childhood that drives people to do the awful things we see around us to themselves and others.
We can’t delude ourselves into being perfect parents or raising children that will never get hurt. Still, when we put our intention and attention into our relationship, we become more aware, listen better, judge less, and love more.
Our relationships in our home and with our children are the Light we can help shine in the world.
Ask yourself: What do I need to do or stop doing to be more present with my children and create a safe and loving environment in my home?
You and what you do, matter!
