Raising little ones is the best and most challenging part of my life. One I wouldn’t give up for the world and also one that has made me cry great big alligator tears.
Being a parent has been a journey in itself. What is right for one parent or child will not be exactly right for another parent or child.
However what I have learned is that being a parent doesn’t have to be hard. Raising a child is simply that… raising them to be the best person they can be as they learn this wonderful world we love in.
As I type this (in November) my son has been sending me photos of how he unpacked our monthly doTERRA order and unwrapped everything and has it sorted on our kitchen table. He found the Holiday Guide and was also sending me photos of what’s in it and what he would like (and why!!!). I love that we are able to show the kids a different way (from how we both grew up-which I’m not knocking st all) of taking care of our health in a more natural holistic way.
The other night my daughter and I were talking. Early we had been talking about feelings and that evening she made a comment about how every single person no matter who they are or anything else, has a brain and a heart. I then added so everyone is capable of loving… and she finished with “and thinking”. Then she added in, but you don’t think with your heart you think with your head, your heart controls the blood flow in your body. I asked her where she feels her feelings. She pointed to her stomach. She said when it feels good, you feel it here and when it feels bad you also feel it here.
Feelings are meant to be felt, to move through, to discuss if needed in writing or talking. Empower your children with healthy living – however that manifests in your life!
