Hi, I’m Dr. Margaret Paul. I’m going to talk to you today about the ultimate way to be a really great parent. I have three children, who are all adults, and I’ve done a lot of research on parenting. And one of the things I learned is that there’s two parts to really great parenting.
One part is being there for your children, for their feelings, understanding them, caring for them and supporting them in what brings them joy.
But the other part of good parenting is becoming a role model of personal responsibility for taking loving care of yourself and this is where many parents have a problem.
They are many parenting books that give wonderful advice about how to be a good parent or your children, but not for how to be a good parent for yourself and how to take care of yourself, and over and over many of these parenting books will say of course can’t do this unless you’re taking care of yourself or this is based on how you can take care of yourself and yet, some people have no idea how to take loving care of themselves. They did not learn that from their parents.
Most people’s parents did not take loving care of themselves and they don’t learn it in school, so if you don’t know how to take loving care of yourself, what do you do?
Well, the ultimate way how to take loving care of yourself is to learn and practice the inner bonding process.
It’s through the inner bonding process that you learn how to take responsibility for yourself on all levels, how to take responsibility emotionally, for your own feelings, physically, for your health and well-being, spiritually, for your spiritual connection, in relationship to others, with your time, your organizations, your finances, and your children need this role modeling from you.
They need to see you taking care of yourself in all of these areas. If they see you being there for them, but not being there for yourself, if they see you turning to addictions rather than taking responsibilities for your feelings, if they see you making your husband or your wife or somebody else take responsibility then that is what they are going to learn to do.
And one of the very best things that you can do for your children is to learn and practice the inner bonding process.
This six step very powerful process teaches you how to take full responsibility for yourself in all areas, how to connect with your feelings, how to connect with your personal sense of guidance, how to speak up with yourself to other people, how to be that wonderful role model that your children need you to be.
So how do you learn the inner bonding process?
