To end our last post here, I wanted to leave you with this to ponder upon.
What Does It Mean To Be a Conscious Parent?
To some, it could
mean being aware of your natural and holistic wellness choices for your
family…to some, it could mean doing your best to eat organic and
non-processed foods… to others, it’s about living a non-toxic lifestyle
and being eco-friendly…to some, it could mean creating a parent/child
bond that instills partnership in “power with” instead of “power
over”…to several, it is striving to model a healthy and loving
relationship between the parents…to some, it is nurturing a more
simplistic lifestyle with less media and less “stuff” and more nature
and child-led play…for others, it’s about seeking support when you’re
not getting your own needs met or perhaps finding a community that
resonates with your parenting philosophies…and for many, perhaps it’s
about actually taking that first step in making the choice to become a
To FLV, it can be all of the above. Yet it
is wherever you are at on your parenting path and knowing that it is
okay – that we’re all striving to model the best that we can so that our
children can thrive! Conscious Parenting is not about the destination,
it is about the journey and the commitment to continuously desire
growing on that journey.
Sadly other parenting methods usually
depend on a rewards and punishment system which may seem at the moment
that it is effective as a “quick fix” but that is exactly what it is.
Like using a spare tire for your flat, it is truly just a “quick fix” –
a temporary compliance which can create disconnection and long-term
harm to not only the parent/child bond but for the child’s development,
Unfortunately in our modern society, most families
don’t get the opportunity to have many members of a village for support.
Raising a child can have its challenges – add other siblings or family
members to take care of (not to mention getting our own needs met) and
it can get a little overwhelming!
So what does FLV do to encourage and support families on this journey?
FLV prefers navigating with tools and resources through several of our
programs that help educate us and our children towards becoming
promoters for our planet, advocates in holistic wellness, and believers
in a more gently guided approach that not only creates connection, it
allows children to fully access their compassionate intelligence along
with the innate ability to unconditionally love and be loved - which if
you think about it, that is really all that anyone ever wants to feel,
is to be loved and accepted by others. So why not BE the shift in role
modeling that guides our children with experiencing conscious living
where they can pay it forward for generations to come?
There has never been a collective like this one – devoted to the
transformation of your family through the lens of parenting with
connection, as well as eco-holistic living.
