Be Fluid like Water ~ ~ ~
Many of our children hold firm to what they want and how they want to BE, do and have. The motivation is always they same no matter what behavior you observe, the desire to ‘feel’ better.
As we their parents become more fluid, looking beyond the behavior and doing our best to understand what their behavior means beyond their behavior, we have the ability to soften our interactions with our children. Every behavior is meaningful but we will not change it with force, we can change it with a calm, neutral stance when we ‘feel’ calm from within.
Nature offers us a guide for our own actions, what force in nature carves hard stone? Water
Yes, dynamite does the same thing but damages the rock. Water is fluid and smooths the rock beautifully. Being fluid like water ~ ~ ~ Tracie ♥
