If we were to run a system search in our head for our emotions as against our childs, there would probably be no results found.
Nurturing your emotions is important while fostering emotional intelligence in your child. You matter. Your feelings matter.
Not only children, even their parents, undergo a lot of stress and emotions, which we do not acknowledge in the pretext of sacrificing oneself, the ultimate mantra for good parents. Is it? I think it's time to recognise and acknowledge those emotions in order to have good mental health and a balanced mindset to foster your child’s emotions.
Parents have a dual role to play raising a self aware, respectful child who can deal with his emotions positively along with channelising their emotions in the right direction.
Self Care!!! So many times we as parents are also undergoing a lot of stress and anxieties. Parents always think that sacrificing is the only way to give happiness to your child.
But Pause and reflect, if you are not happy, if you are mentally unbalanced how will you channelise their emotions in a positive manner. In order to give our best to our kids, it’s important to work on oneself first. If you as a parent are unstable and your own emotional cup is not filled, how will you do so for your child. The first positive affirmation for you should be ‘I am happy and healthy’. Stay positive no matter what, FOR YOUR CHILD.
Most people weren’t parented in a way that helped them identify and acknowledge their emotions in a healthy manner, which inturn makes them do the same to their kids. Very little in fact, almost no importance was given to emotional intelligence.
