“Without a conscious parent, there can be no conscious parenting. Ultimately…the deeper cause of family dysfunction is not the parents’ lack of knowledge or education but their lack of awareness”
The success of this relationship is based on our awareness of it and our ability to learn, grow and change as our children do, it is not static or perfect and it will test us, frustrate us and bring us equal moments of joy and pain. Being emotionally as well as physically present for all of this will teach our children whether they are loveable exactly as they are, even as we set boundaries around their behaviour, or whether they will need to change who they are in order to find love and belonging in the world.
“Finally some parenting classes that treat our children as little human beings rather than little terrors to be tamed or subdued!"
