Raising Children, Raises Us
By: Shannon Leone
It can get tricky!
There are no easy answers in raising the next generation. I’ll admit- I was a PERFECT MOTHER-until I had kids! But perhaps there are clues, and I believe they can be found inside the children themselves.
My Children are My Compass
Reading my children provides insight needed to navigate any terrain, keeping us all on track. Attuning my heart with theirs by seeking to understand how they are experiencing their experience, is how it is done. To orient ourselves in empathy does take time and energy, but the outcome is a happier home-life with secure and loving children.
RULE OF THUMB #1:
Every child is a star!
There really is no such thing as A Gifted Child in my books because ALL children are gifted in someway or another, no exceptions. Remembering this can give us patience and insight into our children’s particular needs and tendencies.
