Parenting involves mentorship
As parents we’re also mentors. Mentoring is about developing your own personal leadership brand.
What do you stand for? What are the most important things you want your children to learn from you? Or remember about you?
Mindfulness will help you know yourself more deeply. It will help you be more authentic and trust the intention behind your decisions.
One of the best gifts you can give your children is to model being happy. When we as parents are running around stressed out it causes our children to feel anxious.
Pause and ask yourself if racing your kids from one activity to the next with no downtime is how you wish to remember these years.
We all need time to relax and just be. Mindfulness will help you to not miss the little things; like when your child is excited to show you something, a smile or a hug.
Being fully present for just a few minutes can go a long way. It can help you feel nourished and help your child feel valued.
