I have been a parent for over 11 years now. There were no ‘accidents’, I wanted to be a mum of 2 and I was lucky enough to get my wish.
We can never really know what becoming a parent is going to be like. It’s very common for mums to say to soon-to-be mums things like ‘nothing can describe it’ and ‘nothing can prepare you for it’. Of course no one call tell you what it’s going to be like, because it is completely different for everyone. The inside out paradigm explains why. The parenting experience comes from thought and not how well behaved your child is, how much they sleep, or their appetite.
In fact one thing is going to guarantee to make parenting tough: when you label your child, e.g. demanding, or a picky eater. What the inside out paradigm has taught me, is that no matter how many times I thought I had ‘seen’ a behaviour play out before, my ability to see in any given moment that my children’s behaviour was new and by staying totally present with them, then any problems I used to perceive just aren’t there anymore.
I have never felt so much love and connection for my children as I do now.
How much would it mean to you to parent with calmness, love and understanding more of the time?
Do you ever worry that you’re doing it ‘right’ or making the ‘right’ decisions for your family?
Do you constantly compare yourself and your children to other parents and their children and feel you fall short?
Do you have a lot of self doubt around how to parent but are fed up with conflicting advice from books, friends, relatives and the internet?
Would you like a bit more patience and not to yell so much, get irritable or overwhelmed and really enjoy parenting in a way you might never have before?
Have you ever thought about how it would be if you could:
• Uncover the hidden challenges that create low moods, worry and stress
• Reduce any conflict for a more relaxed home
• Find your own inner child to really enjoy your time with your children without distractions
• Listen deeply to your children, truly connect and communicate with love and feel that you are heard too
