Happy MOM= Happy CHILD.....Parenting yourself First!

How you care for yourself, will heavily influence your parenting. When you do not love yourself you may be dominant, controlling, rigid, or passive with yourself and your child.

Happy Parent = Happy Child

A parent who fails to reflect and examine how they are with themselves and others may pose a threat to their child’s wellbeing. All parenting starts with you. A strong sense of self and acceptance of self are essential to a fulfilling life and to parent well. Psychologists say that most problems can be traced back to a lack of love. Yet, each of us comes into our Parenting role with unresolved emotional baggage, so I invite you to take a moment to ask yourself the following question: Do you have a deep sense of your own lovability, belief in your intelligence and your amazing capacity? 

If so, this will be mirrored in how you look after yourself on a daily basis. Or do you operate out from insecurity and fear? ‘Love thy neighbour as thyself’ however most forget the ‘as thyself’ part, and you cannot really love your child until you do love yourself. This is not about vanity or arrogance; it’s about a deep acceptance and valuing of self. When you respect and cherish the incredible miracle that you are, everything in your life flows. It is amazing the change it makes; you blossom and in turn those around you; will too.

  • Raising your Self Esteem, through Effective Communication Skills, reduce insecurities and bring you out the best in you!
  • Stop criticising yourself now and forever, it has not worked anyway.
  • Affirm yourself instead ‘I accept myself exactly as I am, and I can make changes’
  • Love yourself unconditionally, not for what you do, but for who you are.
  • Treat yourself as you would treat a small child; be kind, gentle & compassionate with yourself.
  • Praise and encourage yourself as much as you can – ‘I handled that well!’
  • Believe in yourself – build yourself up, don’t break yourself down
  • Seek Support – ask for help in an ‘I’ message;’ I’m tired, can you help me?’
  • Forgive yourself and others daily
  • Express gratitude every day; on waking and before sleeping.
  • Turn your negative thoughts ‘I never get it right’ into positive affirmations: ‘I know I can do it’

Why do it?

Love and approval – the more you give it, the more you get it, But it starts with you; you have to feel it for yourself, in order to pass it on.

What you send out , you get back (either positivity/negativity) And the more you put out, the more you get back

All your communication reflects your sense of self.

What another person says/does is 100% about him/her

What you say/do is 100% about you .

Happy Parenting  Beautiful Moms!!!!
