As parents, we carry the heavy burden of daily responsibilities and the anxiety can often show through. Our children can perceive our pain and often try to share in that bond. Keeping our children in positive thought goes beyond just speaking it, but also showing it. It is how we live and handle our lives that creates the impression.

Allow them to step back and visualize that there are other paths, different ways and alternate methods

Dealing With Challenges

Since we cannot protect our children from the world, we must show them in action and words that there will be hurt and harm in our lives, but it is how we deal with it that can keep us strong. Each age in life brings new levels of hurt, and with every moment of guidance and encouragement we can reassure that they will get through to another day.

Seeing All of the Choices

Children are often blinded by the immediacy of a situation and may not look outside of the box. Guide and consult to help them in their perspective. Allow them to step back and visualize that there are other paths, different ways and alternate methods. All are paths on the same road, but each brings a different ending. Lead them through the positive choices so that it will soon become second nature for them.
