Parenting For Courage:
All day, everyday, we give our children plenty of opportunities, but we don’t give them enough time and space to reflect on their experiences. We want to be protective, encouraging and caring without thought of how we’re making our children powerless. So, read along and find out ways to build resilience, self confidence and unstoppable courage in your children.
If a child is scared of the dark, parents usually say: “I’m right outside the door” or “Come sleep with me in my bed.” But these are accommodations and they lead to increased anxiety. It’s like telling your child, “you can’t do this, so I’m going to help you.”
Empower your children by encouraging them to face their anxieties rather than flee them. This will help them learn to deal with stressors and develop the ability to cope with them. Build courage in them by showing them how to live a life of integrity, morals and ethics. Ultimately, understanding the difference between right and wrong, and that its their choice how they want to live their life, is their ticket to freedom. To help them develop a sense of moral compass, ask them questions like: “You find a 100 dollar bill in a busy mall, what will you do?”
