Have you ever heard someone say that they want their children to be better than they are? Well it’s fine to want your children to be better than you were. Hide sight is 20/20 and it is very easy to see the mistakes that you’ve made in our life when you look back over it, and to want to teach your children to make better choices then you did.
However, sometimes we as parents want our children to be better than we are now, and that is a problem. If there is something about ourselves that we don’t like, we have the power to change it. We can’t change the past, what is done is done, but we can change the present, and we should. And more importantly, we should show our children how.
So often we as parents expect to be able to teach our children to be better than we are, without first accomplishing that ourselves. The best way to teach, it by modeling. If we can manage to accomplish the goals that we want for our children, won’t that make it easier for them to follow suit?
Self-improvement and self-care are huge parts of parenting. If we can take control of our lives and transform ourselves right in front of our children’s eyes; if we can show them that they can do it, by us doing it, then the sky is the limit for both us and them.
Author Amanda Nicole teaches parents the benefits of doing this, and how she went about doing it in her own life in her new Online Parenting course “Who Me…Seriously?” The course explores the importance of self-discovery and how the empowerment received from that journey, can translate into changing your parenting style, as well as increase the level of respect that your children have for you.
