Are you afraid of not having a close relationship with your child?
You may feel as though you aren’t a good parent. Your child constantly throws tantrums, and in the most inopportune moments. When that happens all you want to do is shrivel up and die.
You think that your parenting will impact on the strength of your relationship, longer term.
And you don’t want to lose that connection as you’ve seen what it has meant for others; troubled teens on drugs or in with bad peer groups.
What if there was a different way to parent?
What if you had the ability to not get so emotional around your child?
What if you were able to calmly be present with them, hear them, see them, and respond to them in a more rational manner?
What if you didn’t have to spend so much time fighting with them?
How would it feel to be calm and get the response that you want from them straight away?
Feel connected to them, when you’re with them, no matter what’s happening?
Connected Parenting is about ‘changing the relationship with your child so you are more present with them at all times’
When you sit in the place that allows you to respond in a rational way, rather than an emotional one, you are calmer and so is your child.
And, if they react, you can meet their reaction and accept that it as theirs while still standing strong in your truth.
That isn’t something that is easy to do when you believe that
- you aren’t a good parent;
- your mother doesn’t think you do a good enough job with your child;
- friends’ children are better behaved;
- my child is disruptive at school and it is my fault;
- you aren’t there as much as you should be for your child;
- supporting my child enough when they are struggling, is hard.
“Our parents, our children, our spouses, and our friends will continue to press every button we have, until we realize what it is that we don’t want to know about ourselves, yet. They will point us to our freedom every time.”
– Byron Katie, Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life
How to change the way you parent
We use self-inquiry to explore what you are thinking and believing about your child and yourself.
By questioning what you are thinking you will likely find a different way of functioning around your child.
You may notice that your focus returns to you, rather than constantly being on them.
In this program you will get to gently and kindly explore what is stopping you from having a strong, loving and connected relationship with your child.
You relationship may currently be based on conditioned patterning from your own childhood.
This program explores that, sometimes unconscious, patterned behavior and supports you to find peace in a different way.
Initially you get to sign-up for 21 days of Parenting Tips delivered to your inbox daily.
This will urge you to begin to notice the way things are in your world currently.
Then you can opt-in for a six week program of weekly interactive webinars. All that you need to attend is an open mind and a willingness to inquire into your thoughts.
In these webinars we will use inquiry to look at:What is it that makes you angry about your child, or what they do?
- What it is about your child that makes you angry
- What should or shouldn’t your child be doing for you?
- What is the smallest thing that irritates you the most about your child?
- When and to whom do you complain about your child? What is it you say to them.
- I am a mother/father and that means…?
- Who’s business are you in when…
In each session we look at how what your feeling is impacting on the way that you are engaging or not engaging with your child.
We will look at how your reactions are impacting not only you, but them also.
Join me for this ‘Connected Parenting’ interactive webinar series.
We spend six weeks exploring these topics in an online environment when all you need to join is a device (Smart phone, iPad or Laptop) and an internet connection.
The sessions will be recorded, so that you have the ability to listen back to them. This way you may get the most out of the program.
