I will show you how to defuse stressful situations and deal with conflicts with serenity and confidence.
I will help you to feel less angry, deal with fear, speak to your children with empathy and learn discipline without punishment.
I will encourage you to let go of guilt and take responsibility.
My coaching is aimed at strengthening both parents’ and childrens' authenticity and self-confidence.
Adults are responsible for the atmosphere in the family. When they learn to see they children with a different eye, it will improve regardless of the children’s age.
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of
Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love
but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies
but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit,
not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward
nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
