Parenting is a challenge no matter what your child's superpower is. Finding the joy in parenting is much easier than you think.
When I first became a mom I thought that parenting was just like on TV, boy was I in for a big surprise. You see when I found out that my daughter had a mind all her own and our issues couldn't be solved with a quick antidote I was floored. My mom had made this parenting thing look easy too, her cool demeanor was nothing short of Zen like, I wondered what was I doing wrong, and it all boiled down to mindset.
The largest block that most parents face is the discovery and acceptance that their child has a mind of their own and they do use it regularly. Allowing your child to think for themselves and make their own decisions in no way diminishes your role as a parent.
Here are my top 3 techniques that I use to be a conscious momma and to create some joy in my parenting:
Be gentle with yourself as you employ these techniques especially if you have been living on the edge for a while. Also, be gentle with your children, these changes; although positive will still take them time to get used to also
This is going to be a journey that is going to be a lot of work but worth it. Knowing that there is hope for peace and harmony in your home makes parenting a much more joyous experience.
So take your time and enjoy the ride.
