Part #6. We have the resources within us to achieve what we want
We all have the potential to develop and grow. This presupposition helps you to guide yourself as a parent and your child
as well to bring about relevant change or achieve desired outcomes by using the inner resources you already have inside you. You need to identify your skills and utilize these skills in parenting. You may be a good sales-person. You might be enjoying wonderful convincing skills. You can use the same skills while motivating your child to excel in their studies.
So, when you are faced with a problem, relax and research it. Explore new ways to resolve it. Don’t give up till you find a suitable solution. It is like your car. A red light in your car indicates that something isn’t working right. Stop, investigate, share your observations, and see what can be done. If you can’t change it, find someone you can trust who can.
Part #7. There is no failure only feedback
Remember that as a parent you are human and humans do make mistakes. When things go wrong, recognize that, learn from the mistake and see what you can do differently next time. Forgive yourself and try again. Keep on trying until getting it right becomes second nature. Listen to your children and use their comments as feedback. It is amazing what you can learn about yourself from the mouths of your own children.
