“In the absence of reflection, history often repeats itself, and parents are vulnerable to passing on to their own children unhealthy patterns from the past. Understanding our lives can free us from the otherwise almost predictable situation in which we re-create the damage to our children that was done to us in our own childhoods. Research has clearly demonstrated that our children’s attachment to us will be influenced by what happened to us when we were young if we do not come to process and understand our lives.”
Dr Dan Siegel, Parenting from the Inside Out.
♥ Have you ever felt intense emotional responses to your child that were disproportionate to the situation?
♥ Have you ever done or said things that you later regret? Have you ever wished that you could become a more peaceful parent?
♥ Have you struggled with understanding your child’s emotions?
You are not alone
We’re all human. Even the most peaceful parents feel exasperated, overwhelmed, and frustrated at times.
So, what can you do to become more patient and calm in your parenting?
Your first task
If you want to be calmer, your first task – your most important task – is to become a more “CONSCIOUS PARENT “.
What exactly does it mean to become a more “Conscious Parent “and what is “Conscious Parenting”?
What Is Conscious Parenting?
Traditional parenting stresses on ‘I am a parent, and you are my child, you need to follow me, because I have been raised that way.’ Conscious parenting is about the paradigm shift from traditional parenting. It is about being aware of your child and being aware of yourself.
Conscious parenting is about being mindful and conscious in all your interactions with your child. It is about connecting with your children at a deeper level and nurturing their essence.
It requires a change in the way you view your child’s behavior and respond consciously to his/her needs. Simply put, it means, seeing your children as they are, or seeing the ‘spirit or the essence of their being’.
Conscious parenting urges you to change your perspective on parenting. And why not because parenting is a privilege as our children help us transform into better individuals. CP prepares the ideal environment for you and your child to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Conscious parenting involves thinking deeply about your own childhood experiences so that you can develop a deeper understanding of your own life story, and so that you can identify your own emotional triggers.
It involves taking the time to consciously examine the internal experiences that provoke your intense emotional responses to your child so that you can stop yourself from being ‘emotionally hijacked’, and so that you can make mindful choices about how to interact with your child. It is about healing yourself so that you can be the parent you want to be.
All of us, even those of us who were raised in emotionally healthy families, had emotional needs that were not met at times, and we all experienced emotional pain. If we do not heal our emotional wounds, we are likely to inflict the same wounds on our child. It is only when we develop a deeper understanding of our own life story that we can truly let go of the past. And it is only then that we can be truly present for our child and experience the greatest joy of parenting: a strong, happy, and healthy connection with our child.

♥ Learn how a child is showing you in various ways that he or she is emotionally stressed.
♥ Learn how childhood impacts ones entire life and the various effects of unconscious parenting in ones adult life.
♥ Learn how to develop and strengthen an emotional connection with your child
Empathy, understanding, tolerance, and the validation of needs, along with consistent modelling of self-regulation and mindful practices will nurture your child’s growth in positive ways.
Your influence will be stronger with a loving, non-judgmental approach to discipline than with fear-based, conditional techniques aimed at seeking at short-term compliance or unwavering obedience.When we understand how punishment disconnects us from our children and emphasizes conditional love – we learn tolerance. When we recognize that solutions and acceptance can’t always occur at the exact moment of conflict because they require reflection – we learn patience.
After helping many parents over the years , I am convinced that the biggest challenge facing parents today is regulating their own emotions and being patient, despite the stresses. In my view “ Conscious Parenting “is the future of parenting and the need of the hour because childhood shapes our entire life .If you raise your child unconsciously he or she will struggle for the rest of their lives recovering from their childhood.
I thank you for your commitment to the wellbeing of your child and your family and for your willingness to keep learning and growing. As a parent you deserve all the support you need. I feel so grateful to walk alongside you on your parenting journey.
I want to help you shift from a traditional (power-based) view of parenting to a conscious (relational-based) view so you can bring the focus back to helping your children self-regulate, build skills – all while building strong bonds between you and them and eventually raise emotionally healthy children.
The duration for this program is for three months.
A secure attachment is built with timely and caring responses to a child’s needs.
