The Peaceful Parent

"One generation full of deeply loving parents would change the brain of the next generation, and with that, the world." - Charles Raison

What does it mean to be a Peaceful Parent?

*We take responsibility for regulating our own emotions, so we can stay as calm as possible with our children.

*We set limits with empathy.

*We reflect before we react, looking for the reason behind our child's behavior.

*We connect before we correct.

*We try to accept our child's "big" emotions with compassion, which helps her to move past them.  

*We take responsibility for keeping our own "love cups" full, so we can pour our appreciation, acceptance and unconditional love into our child.
