When I adopted my daughter I was SURE I had it all together. I was going to be the best parent in the world and I was READY for my mission. So, when I found myself in the weeds struggling to get my 4-year-old to listen, I noticed that I was withdrawing love and protecting my heart. This led to a deep inquiry about what was going on inside my heart …

Have you ever considered the intense pressure your child feels to meet your needs? If not, let’s take a little time to explore.

I never thought of myself as an arrogant person. Honestly, I had quite the judgment about folks I perceived as arrogant. Then I became a parent! YIKES.

Tune into this week's episode to hear more about my journey to disco…
 
Do you ever think your child didn’t come with an instruction manual? Well, what if they did and yet you aren’t interested in reading it? Why would this be?

RAGE is a terrifying emotion to turn towards with kindness. RAGE, in my family, was explosive and volatile and often expressed in destructive ways.

In all my years, I’ve struggled with what I’m now calling “finishing the moment”. Starting something new, I leave a trail of dust behind in my wake for I’m constantly onto the next shiny object in the distance. Rarely, do I finish the moment I’m actually experiencing. In my parenting, this shows up when my daughter is sharing a story about her expe…

Over and over again, one of the main things I practice in my life, and especially in my parenting, is the counter instinctual move toward my uncomfortable feelings instead of away from them.

I've had many experiences in my life, some joyful, others painful, and a whole wide range in between. Mothering, in all its ups and downs, has been the most profound experience and continues to be so. Little did I know what lay ahead when I traveled to China 21 years ago to adopt my daughter. I honestly thought- 'I am so ready for this experience. …
 
Lots of parents ask me, how do I set boundaries with my child? It is a HUGE topic and one I've chosen to explore from my internal experience. Early on I saw how much easier it was to bind my daughter and her behavior than to take responsibility for setting my healthy boundaries. The question entered my mind: What if I don't need to bind and limit h…

Frequently, we hear how important it is to parent from the present moment. This is extremely challenging as our conditioning has trained us to manipulate experience to achieve a particular future outcome. Our children learn this also. We often call them manipulators because when they have a fantasy of some future goodie they desire, they will, for …
 
I once read about a study measuring and comparing the energies of fear and excitement in the body. The researchers found out fear and excitement measured as exactly the same energetic charge.

When the “world” is telling you they are right and you are wrong, the urge to defend and justify yourself is strong. To reverse what is coming at you, desperately you cast others in the wrong and yourself in the right. If you are feeling this way, try this: going deeply inside ask yourself what is my BIG “Why”? - why do I feel compelled to parent t…
 
In your family, were you taught that "wants" were demanding? Was it safer to appear self-reliant and independent? If so, you grew up trying to quell your wants and learned to take care of others while repressing your own. Self-reliance and independence are highly valued in our culture. I received a lot of strokes in my family for taking care of mys…
