How Would You Have Liked to Be Raised?

If you could travel back in time and change your parents' behavior,

how would you have liked them to raise you?

Write it Down .. Life is an Equation

Writing things down is a solution to understanding the process of healing your inner child (emotional body) to be a better parent.

If you are a parent answers each of these questions honestly:

    Are you trying to be the kind of parent you wanted your parents to be?
    Are you repeating your childhood abuse issues with your children?
    If you come from a dysfunctional family, do you expect your children to be functional?
    Do you feel you have stronger karma with one child than the others?
    Has your child become the parent and you the child - role reversals?
    Do you understand the needs of children born in this timeline?
    How do you believe your children see you?
    Do you know how to fix problems in your family? Need professional help?
    Do you attached a metaphysical label to your child if they are challenged - such as "Indigo Child"?
    Did you want to be a parent?
    Are you better able to parent an older child than a baby?
    Do you feel you've failed your children? Can you fix it?


Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical,
emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy
to adulthood. Parenting refers to the activity of raising a child rather
than the biological relationship.

In the case of humans, it is usually done by the biological parents of
the child in question, although governments and society take a role as
well. In many cases, orphaned or abandoned children receive parental
care from non-parent blood relations. Others may be adopted, raised by
foster care, or be placed in an orphanage.

The goals of human parenting are debated. Usually, parental figures
provide for a child's physical needs, protect them from harm, and impart
in them skills and cultural values until they reach legal adulthood,
usually after adolescence. Among non-human species, parenting is usually
less lengthy and complicated, though mammals tend to nurture their
young extensively. The degree of attention parents invest in their
offspring is largely inversely proportional to the number of offspring
the average adult in the species produces.

I've learned from my father's "mistakes", just as he learn from his father. I'm sure my children are doing the same!

In spite of the fact they did a lousy job and I 'divorced' them when I was 16 I came to realize they did the best they knew how--and if I had a different beginning would I have turned out as fabulous as I am???

So true, and so wise at 16.
