The secret life of an Inside-Out Parent: Lovely Faces kids make
Don't you love all those faces kids make throughout the day....
Like when you take them to a park far far away with a lot of effort and they are not enjoying it.....
When bedtime means a long face with a lot of resistance every day pretty much....
Or they don't want to eat the cute vegetable salad you made and spent so much time on...
I can give many examples, but I think you know where I am going.
It might seem to us that how dare they, I am doing all that I can and I still get a daily dose of grumpy upset faces that I don't really deserve.
I would like to share my secret with you.
Since I have been an Inside-Out Parent, my kid's faces don't have that effect on me anymore, now when they pull all those grumpy cute, bored, or moody faces, I just think to myself.
They are going through some upsetness right now and I don't need to add to it by investing energy into it and also burdening them with my expectations of this moment.
And do you want to know what happens?
The whole upset face thing passes by and no big deal comes out of it.
No reaction, just staying present and neutral will resolve most little upset faces very quickly, and for the bigger ones, you can book a zero-cost Effortless Parenting Session visit coachsafia.com/90
