“Respond to your children with LOVE in their worst moments,
their broken moments,
their angry moments,
their selfish moments,
their lonely moments,
their frustrated moments,
their inconvenient moments,
Because it is in their most unloveable human moments that they most need to feel loved.” -LR Knost
A powerful reminder to choose love in our responses to parenting. Most of us naturally choose fear in our responses to our children.
Fear that if we don't set them straight right now, they'll never listen to us.
Fear that if we don't yell, they won't take us seriously and won't learn their lesson.
Fear that if we ease up on our children, they will walk all over us.
This is parenting from fear, and when we choose to parent from love, everything changes. We end up gaining better connection with our children, which leads to better cooperation. Choosing love creates miracles.
May this oath bracelet support your journey in choosing love in your connection based relationship and parenting journey.
