This is what I learnt.
When you attack this parenting gig with confidence, and trust that you are doing the right thing by your child, then every single thing works out.
You have happy kids.
You are happy.
And issues that come up just roll off your back, and don’t stick at all.
But it takes CONFIDENCE to BE confident, and that part is sometimes tricky to figure out.
I love seeing this confidence bloom in my clients, and then I just get to turn up and have a chat and a catch up, while I praise and sit in awe at how they are starting to figure it all out themselves.
I truly love this stage of the process.
Coaching parents, and talking about kids personaltiies and how they work is only the first part of the process, and I’m only a small part of that. I don’t need to tell parents WHAT to do, I’m just there to give them the confidence to do THEMSELVES in the best possible way.
We get so caught up as parents in trying to do everything PERFECTLY rather than do the RIGHT thing for us.
Yes, I’ve got some ideas, thoughts, insights into how kids personalities work, and how to find the ‘sweet spots’ in your relationship with your child, and ease the tensions.
But the part I LOVE is when I’m not really needed any more.
When I get to just be a friend. When I get to just listen to my clients own their parenting in the BEST possible ways. And then as a complete aside, they also get to own their LIVES in the best possible way.
I love it.
For every mum and dad that I work with it’s always different, and everyone of us parents differently, but to see it done with confidence and a smile, and with humour, rather than stress, frustration, or anger, that is the BEST possible scenario for me to see.
Every single parent is capable of taking back the reins of their parenting, and to do it in the most individual way.
I have a happy, and fantastic job, and the fact that I get to see the best of people is the cherry on the top.
You can ABSOLUTELY be the parent that you want to be, and I can help you get there.
