Peaceful Parenting

What does it mean to be a Peaceful Parent?

No human is always peaceful. Peaceful Parenting just means that we work on ourselves first, so that we aren't taking our own emotions out on our children.

  • We take responsibility for regulating our own emotions, so we can stay as calm as possible with our children.
  • We set limits with empathy.
  • We reflect before we react, looking for the reason behind our child's behavior.
  • We connect before we correct.
  • We try to accept our child's "big" emotions with compassion, which helps the child move past them.
  • We apologize and repair when we mess up.
  • We take responsibility for keeping our own "love cups" full, so we can pour our appreciation, acceptance and unconditional love into our child.

And we end up with more peaceful homes and hearts, a lot less drama, and a lot more love.
