“Enjoying your child and sharing in the awe of discovering what it means to be alive, to be a person in a wondrous world, is crucial for the development of your child’s positive sense of self.
When we are respectful and compassionate toward ourselves and our children, we often gain a fresh perspective that can enrich our enjoyment of life together. Remembering and reflecting on the experiences of day-to-day life creates a deep sense of feeling connected and understood.
When parents feel pressure in their busy lives, they may often feel strained to keep up with all the details of managing family schedules. Children need to be enjoyed and valued, not managed.
We often focus on the problems of life rather than on the possibilities for enjoyment and the learning available to us.
When we are too busy doing things for our children, we forget how important it is to simply be with them. We can delight in the opportunity to join with our children in the amazing experience of growing together.
Learning to share in the joy of living is at the heart of a rewarding parent- child relationship.”
