What if our children’s resiliency, happiness, and ability to navigate their way into an autonomous adulthood depended less on our hovering over them and carefully curating their every experience, and more on attending to our own alignment and self-care?
Children need to feel loved and secure. At the same time, though, it is to their benefit to witness their parents growing, learning, and creating, as well as caring for their own bodies and spirits.
When our children observe us attending to our own self-care, they are more likely to understand that they, like we, are inherently worthy of self-love. That they are free to express themselves. That it is their divine right to explore and become who they are.
