Every single day, we push ourselves, and our children to strive…achieve…and keep going for more – bigger. But who’s to say that this leads to fulfillment? Who’s to say it leads to success? And what if your definition of success is completely different than the next person’s? Read more “How Achievement Can Set You Up To Fail”
Whenever I am feeling uncertain about what to do when it concerns my children, I simply ask the question: What is best for _______?
Usually the first answer that comes up, is the answer.
If you are still unclear….
Find a quiet moment – perhaps before you go to sleep.
Take a few deep breaths and ask the question. Be still….
The answer may come up through your dreams, or right then and there. One way or another, your inner GPS is always on and working.
You will be guided somehow!

“It’s interesting to look at your children as line-in Zen masters who can put their finger on places where you’re resistant, or thinking narrowly, in ways noone else can. You can either lose your mind and your authenticity in the process of reacting to all that stuff, or you can use it as the perfect opportunity to grow and nourish your children by attending to what is deepest and best in them and in yourself.” Jon Kabat-Zinn, in an interview with YES! Magazine
How Much of Our Parenting is on a Conscious Level?
I often refer to Conscious Parenting, and the question comes up about what exactly that involves.
