No matter what age, setting healthy boundaries for our children can be confusing...are you confident in your plan?
-Do you feel as connected with your child as you would like to? -Are Friendships difficult for your child? -Does your child struggle in extracurricular activities? -Are things getting broken too often? -Do small moments turn into full meltdowns? -Does your child agonize over making decisions?
As parents, one of our most important jobs is to create boundaries that help our children be emotionally healthy and prepared for the world.
As Intentional Parents, our most important job is to create those boundaries based on building OUR children a strong Safety Net that will support them specifically in achieving SECURE attachment, Unwavering TRUST, SUCCESSFUL Relationships and Feelings of SAFETY and CONNECTION.
I know it can feel very overwhelming and even seem impossible at times. As a parent of 6 children who each had their own set of needs, I often found myself dealing with tantrums and worrying about their self esteem. I watched some of my children sabotage events and friendships with their behaviors and choices. And many times I felt "pushed back" in our relationship, which caused huge disconnects over and over again. The Safety Net was not in place as of yet - I had to do something different!
Here's the thing...YOU don't have to worry. I spent time with the research, other training and testing out my techniques and figured out the key. We really need to create a world for our children that is the correct size for them. Life's boundaries cannot be a one size fits all. Boundaries have to be put in place very intentionally in order to truly increase emotional health.
The right set of boundaries creates an "environment" in which our children will flourish and succeed. They will acquire better self esteem, be confident in their ability to make a positive impact on the world, be more successful in all of their relationships, their ability to trust and depend on us will blossom and so much more! Just let yourself think of the possibilities!
Okay, so the reality is that we all know, one way or another, that our job includes setting (or not) healthy boundaries for our children. However, no one teaches about how to do that with kids who have any level of struggle with emotional and developmental hurdles. There is no one that talks about intentionally aligning the size of your child's world with his actual abilities, rather than expecting him to have abilities already in place that help him manage his world. Nobody explains how we can impact trust by focusing on creating healthy brain chemistry. There is no one else that coaches parents to keep from being diluted in their relationship with their child.
There is so much I want to share with you about this very important part of our job so I decided to put it all together in one place just for YOU.
