When it comes to parenting wisdom, no principle may be more important than how we speak to our children.

 

Child Behavior Challenge

Under the influence of a disturbed emotional reaction to a child behavior challenge, we are most likely to say something that negatively impacts child self-esteem, self-confidence and performance.

What we say to our children impacts them deeply.

 

When we feel frustrated with our kids, it’s best to practice the parent wisdom of silence.

 

Under the influence of a disturbed emotional reaction to a child behavior challenge, we are most likely to say something that negatively impacts child self-esteem, self-confidence and performance.

 

What we say to our children forms their mental programming.

 

Telling a child that he never listens, calling a child a slob, labeling your kid selfish or stubborn proves to be a form of self-defeating parenting.

 

Skills in the area of verbal communication help you empower your child.

 

When we feel frustrated our parent-child communication skills are compromised.

 

The next time that you are faced with a child discipline challenge, before you speak, imagine that your child will forever remember what you are about to say.

 

Parenting Wisdom And The Child Behavior Challenge

The next time that you are faced with a child discipline challenge, before you speak, imagine that your child will forever remember what you are about to say

Take a moment to calm down and think about the messages do you WANT your child to remember and live up to?

 

This morning, my 9 year old was making noise while his baby brother slept.

 

I felt like saying, “Why won’t you stop and think about how you are impacting your brother?  He needs his sleep and I don’t want to have to deal with a cranky baby right now! Don’t you care about anyone but yourself?!”

 

But instead of blurting out harsh words, I paused, recognizing I was feeling too upset to speak constructively with my child.

 

So I remained silent.

 

Immediately I realized that all I needed to do was to place my hands on his shoulders and lovingly lead him to a place where his volume would not disturb his brother’s sleep.

 

I’m glad I applied the parenting wisdom of silence to protect his sacred heart.

Motivated Kids Can Make A Big Difference

6-Year-Old Raises $10K To Help Ailing Dad

 

Positive Parenting Raises Motivated Kids

A 6-year-old boy from Gladewater, Texas has done what most adults would not be able to do. Drew Cox, 6, raised $10,000 at a lemonade stand to help his father Randy Cox who had been diagnosed with Seminoma cancer three months ago.

 

Setting an inspiring example of what a caring child can do, Drew set up a lemonade stall on Walnut Street, Saturday, April 14, to help raise funds for his father’s medical bills. As the word spread about this little boy’s brave effort, cars and people queued up to support his cause by buying a cup of lemonade for 25 cents. By the end of the day, the earnings had reached a whopping $10,000.

 

The beautiful child-parent relationship between this ailing father and his doting son was evident in Drew’s words about his father. “He is so important to me. We like to play with each other. Lots of times we like to play games,” Drew said on KLTV.

 

Drew’s feat is reminiscent of the 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who, battling with a form of childhood cancer – neuroblastoma since before her first birthday, had decided to set up a lemonade stand to raise money for her doctors to help find a cure for all kids with cancer.

 

“Alex was just four-years-old when she asked my wife if she could hold a lemonade stand when she was released from the hospital. When asked what she wanted to do with the money, Alex said she wasn’t keeping it, but instead giving it to her doctors to help find a cure for all kids with cancer. And so, our lemonade crusade began,” writes Jay Scott, Alex’s father and Co-Executive Director, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, in Huffingtonpost.com.

 

Positive Parenting Techniques

Parenting kids is also about inspiring children to do their bit to make the world a better place

Alex, with the help of volunteers across the country raised over $1 million in her lifetime (she passed away in 2004). But her legacy was carried on by parents who have raised over $50 million toward finding a cure for cancer.

 

Motivated kids set precedents which even adults may find hard to match. It is essential for parents to instill this wisdom in children that they too can make a difference.

 

When you help develop in your child the vision to see beyond his own self and the ability to think for others’ welfare, you motivate your child to grow as a caring, helpful, kind and compassionate human being.

 

Parenting kids is not only about making sure they have the good things of life. It’s about inspiring children to do their bit to make the world a better place.

How To Raise A Wise Child

Follow Parenting Wisdom With Your Child

Wisdom guides mastery in all fields of endeavor, including parenting.

To follow parenting wisdom with your child means that you are connecting with your own positive, loving and intelligent intuitive inner guidance.

 

You need to be calm, emotionally balanced, and aware in the now for this to happen.

 

When parents begin feeling frustrated in their efforts to control their child, they break their internal connection with the inner wisdom that can guide them toward healthier, happier parenting success.

 

For instance, if you begin feeling annoyed when your child interrupts your work or demands your attention while you are on the phone, your stressful reaction prevents you from handling the situation as well as you can, from producing the results that you really want.

 

Every parent needs to MASTER the experience of being distracted, to stay sane, content, and constructive.

 

Wisdom guides mastery in all fields of endeavor, including parenting.

 

Wisdom is an inspired state of consciousness that nurtures the soul.

 

When you demonstrate parenting wisdom in your relationship with your child, your inner, harmonious, enlightened state radiates, reaching and nurturing your child’s inner life with those same qualities, producing a happier, more loving and wise child.

 

Parents who complain that their children are too wild would do well to consider this way of helping their children to be more wise.

Parenting Kids Under Media Glare – A Challenge For Celebrity Parents

By Antara   |  Monday, April 2nd, 2012
Effective Parenting

All parents need to put in extra efforts to build a loving, trusting, friendly and supportive parent child relationship.

The speculations and media glare about Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina’s activities following her mother’s death is making headlines and setting the social media abuzz.

 

The sudden passing away of Houston, an iconic figure for hundreds of thousands music lovers across the globe, has pitch forked her daughter into the spotlight with newspersons and paparazzi tracking her every move. From Oprah Winfrey to leading lifestyle magazines and TV channels, Bobbi Kristina is the talk of the town.

 

Nothing surprising here. Being a celebrity kid isn’t easy and almost all star kids face incessant media attention. For celebrity parents, it becomes a big challenge to ensure that their kids develop healthy child behavior and the wisdom to handle the trappings of fame successfully.

 

There are two sides to the coin of having parents who are super busy celebrities. On the one side, you have a life of luxury, opulence and fame from the time you open your eyes.

 

On the other side, your parents are often away for long periods for work and the media is always at your feet, trailing you, clicking your pictures, selling them for thousands of dollars, speculating on everything you do…it’s a hard life too.

 

Besides, we hear often about celebrity kids trying hard to come to terms with the failed relationships of their parents, peer pressure,  resorting to drug abuse, getting mired in controversies and struggling to match up to public expectations. Behavior problems of kids of star parents get flashed in the media in no time, doubling the pressure on the children and their parents too.

 

Julia Roberts, in a recent interview, lucidly explained her worries about raising her children – seven-year-old twins Hazel and Finn and four-year-old Henry in the spotlight, saying that after she met Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer, she felt reassured that children do turn out fine.

 

ANI reported that the Daily Telegraph quoted Roberts as telling Vanity Fair magazine, “Grace comes up and goes, ‘Gosh, it’s so sweet seeing all your kids on the set. It reminds me of when I was little, and I would go see my mom at work.”

 

“I said, ‘How old were you when you realized your mom was Meryl Streep?’ She said, ‘I think I was probably nine when I put that all together’.

 

“I said, ‘Were you cool with it?’ She said, ‘Yeah, it was fine. There was no trauma.’ So that was hopeful,” Roberts added, the report said.

Wisdom For Parenting Kids

Positive parenting is to be with your children in their most impressionable formative years.

All parents need to put in extra efforts to build a loving, trusting, friendly and supportive parent child relationship. That is part of positive parenting.

 

For people who are in the limelight, parenting children in a healthy parent child relationship is all the more essential as even their personal and private lives make news – some factual, some speculative and some pure rumors. You cannot always hide your child away from the cameras.

 

But if you instill the wisdom in your kids to understand the life issues that are real and permanent and the trappings that are illusory and temporary and develop in your child the ability to differentiate between the two, the kids grow up to take all this attention, pressures and opulence in their stride.
