Mindful Parenting Bootcamp #4
2-Day Virtual Online Bootcamp
8th - 9th of October 2022 | Saturday - Sunday | 10 am - 3 pm
Parenting is an awesome responsibility that involves an incredible amount of work. It isn’t easy to be a great parent. I’ve had the privilege of speaking to and working with thousands of students and parents. through these interactions, I’ve come to realise that despite their good intentions, parents often do things that confuse, annoy, anger or frustrate their children. I’ve noticed the many mistakes that parents make in trying to raise happy and successful children. I also observed that winning parents do differently. Based on these observations, I’ve come up with a list of 10 questions that all successful parents ask themselves.
*Just to be clear, this information is from a Child and student'sperspective.
1. Do I want what’s good for my child or what’s best?
It is natural for parents to advise their children to pursue the safe, predictable, and practical route. Parents do this because they don’t want their children to experience uncertainty or discomfort. This is a good path. But, is this the best path?
2. Do I measure my success as a parent by the quality of the relationship, or by how effectively I can control my child?
Winning parents understand that it’s more important to build a relationship with their child than it is to find innovative ways to control their behaviour. Just because your child obeys your instructions doesn’t mean that you’re a world-class parent. It just means that your child is obedient.
3. Do I recognise that I’m responsible to my child not for him or her?
Parents often think that they’re responsible for their children. Responsible for their academic performance, for their behaviour, for their social etiquette. But NO. Parents are only responsible to their children.
4. Do I focus more on what my child does or on whom he/she is becoming?
Winning parents understand that every great student, musician,athlete, entrepreneur, technician, salesperson, etc came to a point where they committed to greatness. Commitment involves making a choice. You can’t force someone to be great. That’s why successful parents don’t coerce their children into taking action. Instead, they allow their children to make choices and to take responsibility for those choices.
