You are the expert
... and I am the guide by the side.
You are already whole; the exact parent for the job.
There are several gimmicks out there that pull us, parents, away from this innate awareness, and as such, we often find ourselves parenting from a fear and control-based place.
The conscious path to parenting acknowledges the wholeness of both the parent and the child, using empathy, compassion, curiosity, and leadership as the key ingredients for a more peaceful home.
The Conscious Parenting Path
We all have an authentic need for safety. As children, we learn how to make our first family systems work for us because we depend on them for survival. To do this, we grow the parts of us that our system wants and minimize the parts they don’t. We become coded with a belief system about who we are and how we have to operate.
Most of us continue to live out the narrative of our belief systems well into adulthood. However, what once started as adaptive often becomes symptomatic. When we remain unconscious of this patterned conditioning, we enter parenthood and see our children from the lens of our programming, thus creating stories about them.
We attempt to fix, sermonize, and control our children in the face of their big emotions and challenging behaviors, and we yell, lecture, or resort to punitive measures even when we don’t want to. Inadvertently, we pull our children out of their authenticity as has been done to us, slowly chipping away at their unique signature. In this way, our children take on the emotional inheritance of not only us but of generations past as we perpetuate the cycle. Because these patterns are unconscious, it’s a hard cycle to break.
This is where coaching comes in. Conscious parent coaching offers gentle guidance, holding up a mirror to your patterned beliefs and reactive habits in a way that can be accessed by the subconscious mind. In doing this inner work, you reclaim the forgotten parts of yourself and develop new behavior patterns. This builds the foundation for you to become your child’s growth partner, seeing them not as a projection of your beliefs but as they truly are. When we understand ourselves and our children, it is then that we can access discipline tools from a conscious lens.
Each coaching package will move from this layered approach.
You, the parent
Here we will: Establish personal values; make peace with your parenting past; identify your current parenting patterns; understand the origin of your triggers; create a dialogue with your inner child and protective parts; examine your fears, limiting beliefs, and projections; learn somatic, mindfulness and self-regulation tools to consciously respond (instead of passively reacting) to your children.
Here we will: Understand your child's emotions and behaviors through the lens of attachment and development; invite internal safety through appropriate expectations; uncover their unmet needs to get to the root of their challenges; recognize your child’s unique trigger thresholds and meltdown language; and practice acceptance for the essential beings they are.
Parenting tools are unique to each family as each family system is unique. Topics may include establishing sturdy leadership; setting boundaries; establishing family values; navigating transitions and routines; managing sibling rivalry; effective co-regulation, empowered communication, and creative problem-solving; tools for repair, and more.
