How would you rate your parenting skills and training? During these crazy coronavirus conditions, it is a great time to rate and review how your parenting is working. Are your children feeling anger, anxiety, confusion, desperation, exasperation, frustration, guilt, or hostility dealing with the crazy current conditions? There are hundreds of negative emotional states that children can experience during the day and many of them are a direct result of the emotional states of the parents. As parents, we can get stuck in an un-resourceful state and that is what our children will role model because they instinctively want to grow up to be like their parents.
“This blog will share some words with wisdom to help parents stay in a solid, stable, and super-positive state to be more resilient and resourceful when dealing with their children, family, and friends.” — Michael Morningstar
The following words with wisdom are the information, insights, and intelligence gained from raising three amazing children to be successful adults in their thirties and forties who now have amazing children of their own. As parents, we can all benefit from coaching and guidance to help us set the stage for the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual development of our children. Parenting is the art and science of blending anthropology, biology, physiology, and psychology in a way that creates a caring, nurturing, and supportive environment.
