I am wondering how many of you have asked yourself that all important question, “How can I be more effective as a parent?”

What if most of you have answered, “yes” to that question? And what if when asked how can you be more effective, you gave answers like, “letting my kids know they are loved, setting up rules, teaching my kids boundaries, limiting TV and video game time, helping them with their homework, and spending quality time with them”?

All of those answers are indeed powerful and correct. And now for the “New YOU” question…How many of you have been aware that your children are a reflection of you? Those cute little ones, especially those under 2 years of age, resemble you as clones for they actually think that they are you. (Please recall the terrible two’s when they began breaking away with that dreaded word, “No!”)

Yes, Moms, your darlings (or not so darlings) picked up your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions while in your womb. They accepted them as their own for they did not know they were separate from you. Perhaps, or not, you had feelings where you lacked self-confidence, you had financial fears, or you agonized whether your partner really loved you.

And Dads, remember those discussions, misunderstandings, problems at work that you brought home…and ranted about? Your unborns felt your anxieties through their mother’s emotions. It wasn’t your words necessarily but the vibrational energy they emitted.

Now, are you aware that your children have absorbed your fears, feelings, worries and lack of self -love? The plus is that they have also soaked up your beautiful and empowering beliefs. How wonderful for them!

The parenting absolute bottom line here is to see, hear and feel your beliefs and feelings and get some help in removing any limiting ones. Then, your new powerful beliefs can resonate with the truth that you love and respect yourself. It is the easiest way to get your children to love and respect themselves and others and have the spectacular life they deserve. How can it get any better than that?
