Love, Magic & Mudpies – Part 2

Oops – a day too late. Here are some more magic tips from Dr Bernie Siegel’s lovely book:

Let your children know that you love them even when their behavior is inappropriate. You can love a child whose behavior you do not like.

Write a note to yourself tonight and put in up where you will see it in the morning. Just put one word on it. Listen. Leave it there to remind you to listen to your family the entire day.

Have faith in life’s corridor of doors. Give your children the freedom and the power to make their own choices and pay their own consequences. If you stand in the way and try to stop them, you will get run over.

 My magic tip: Remember to use these tips for your inner child too. A happy parent is the best parent.
