Self acceptance as a parent: Chapter 3, The Conscious Parent by Shefali Tsabary

I had to share this! I see this happening all around me. Most parents are sadly unconscious of this behavior. Having been raised in a culture that promoted the herding mentality where free thinking was and still is frowned upon by the majority of the society and fitting in is considered to be the proper behavior, it is only normal that self acceptance is not accomplished by many adults and parents who were raised in this culture. And sadly a parent who has not accepted themselves fully is unable to accept their child fully for who they are, let alone becoming the kind of parent that the child needs 😞
