Empowering our childen

296288_574910275895272_75216446_n“Parents can’t choose the mates of their children or the behavior of their children. You actually can’t choose anything for your children without disempowering them.”
– Abraham

When anyone feels as though they are losing their power or when anyone tries to make us conform, do or be something we are not, we strike back, lash out or feel as though we are being smothered.
We as parents, teachers and mentors can recognize we cannot control another simply by remembering our own desire for freedom. In our awareness we provide a space for our children to grow and continue to be the powerful being they are….naturally.
When our children feel empowered they do not feel the need to lash out or prove their power over another.
