We Cannot Control Our Children (and there is no need to)….

Spanking, yelling, threatening, shaming, emotional manipulation – I see all of these as ways in which an unconscious parent (admittedly well-intentioned in most cases), tries to attain control over their child, often without the awareness that over a period of time this leads to a slow but certain death of the child’s emerging spirit. There is a way to raise conscious kids without resorting to these techniques and without spoiling them (the biggest concern for parents who resort to these techniques). It takes a lot of commitment and hard work from the parent but it starts with a simple first step – by respecting our children as human beings.

These words from Dr Tsabary’s book – The Awakened Family are simple yet profound ❤️
