If you have fathered, mothered are step-parenting or grandparenting, or are in the presence of children regularly, know this: they are feeling what you feel.
Children are not reflections of our worth, or their worth, but mirrors of our own beliefs about ourselves. When we feel angry, confused, resentful around or toward children, they pick it up with their pure little sensitive selves. They are made to do this to learn about and be safe in the world.
As surely as any animal’s young listen to warning, so do ours. When your emotional/mental/physical state is uncomfortable, their ears are hearing, their bodies feeling. Loud voices, anger, and threat all penetrate their innocent, open eyes and ears.
Right now, while you are fortunate enough to be considering your self as a teacher of your children, what ONE, valuable emotional quality do you choose to communicate to your children with your words and tone?
