This sentence caused me to pause and reflect on how I am raising and impacting my own child’s life. I found this article, The Past is Present: The Impact of Your childhood experiences on how you parent today.
Several questions came to me, such as
- "Am I raising my child because that it was the only way that I have learned to do it?"
- "If I just have a moment to reflect on this, what could I change?"
- "How can I make it better for me and my child?"
This article encourages parents raising children to make conscious decisions and consider the power that you have as a parent; the opportunity to make changes, stop current behaviors and create new loving, respectful and trustful life-long relationships with your children.
