I absolutely love this! Something to remember when interacting and engaging your children. What I love most about it is...it doesn’t just address the 'what' is said...but the way it is said. This is so important because it encompasses the whole experience from the words spoken, to the energy with which it’s said, to the physical and emotional connection...and so on. The way we talk to our children includes so much beyond just the words.
How you show up and speak to your children comes from your inner voice. What does your inner voice sound like? Is it kind, loving, accepting? Or is it judgmental, punishing and critical? Take an inventory of positive vs. negative thoughts and feelings you experience throughout the day. Could you stand to start tipping the scales to the positive side? Don’t judge this...it’s okay, you’re just bringing it into your awareness so you can start to shift it toward kindness, love and acceptance.
It’s like they say on an airplane, “...put your own oxygen mask on first before assisting your children and others”. The more loving your inner voice is to you -----> the more loving and patient you’ll be when speaking with your children -----> the more that will become their inner voice. It’s important to tend your own garden first though, in order to bring to them your most amazing, loving, kind self!
