As a parent, you can be sure when you send them out into the big wide world they are happy, confident and safe.
Do you often wonder if you are getting it right?
You are not alone there! Mums ask me all the time if they are doing it right. I have those doubts too. I think it's part of being human. It really helps to tune into your Mum-tuition, but that can be really tricky when there is information overwhelm and overload. I get it: you keep Googling stuff (yes I do too, you don't want to see my Google history) and then you look around you comparing your life to others. How come they seem to have it all sorted?
How can you possibly know?
You can't (unless you've got a crystal ball)! Nothing is certain and so you know all those people you look at and think have it sorted......they don't. Life chucks them curve balls and they get their fair share of stress. Either that or they only let you see the good bits (that's what Facebook is for!)
You can’t take away the pressure by doing it for them, but you can foster independence and equip them to deal with it.
You can’t protect them from meanies or fears, but they can learn how to stand up for themselves.
You can’t control what they do or say, but you can work on honing their intuition so they listen to what is right for them.
You can’t guarantee or buy their happiness, but they can learn to find it from within.
If your child ...
Lacks confidence or struggles to form mutually respectful friendships which are healthy and happy it is a sign that their sense of self isn't as strong as it could be. When we are comfortable in our skin, we have good boundaries and we know that other people's opinions do not define us. We don't feel like we have to be perfect and we know that mistakes are a necessary part of life.
Do you ever ...
♥ Hear your child doubt themselves and say: 'I don't know' or 'I'm not sure' a lot?
♥ Feel frustrated that your child's low self confidence doesn't match their gifted ability?
♥ Get locked into a power struggle and feel drained by their relentless energy?
♥ Notice your child day dreaming or lost deep in thought or worry?
♥ Find yourself on the receiving end of a tsunami of emotions that you can't seem to soothe?
♥ Hear other people tell you that your child is very wise or has a young head on old shoulders?
♥ Feel sad to see your child questioning themselves as they care too much about what other people think?
♥ Feel sad to see your child get teased for being oversensitive or worries about what other people think of them; taking their opinions to heart?
Or maybe your child is a Wild Heart?
Your Wild Heart child (strong-willed sensitive temperament) is like no other. A heart of gold and the capacity to feel deeper than the deepest ocean, but with the rigid determination of steel. This beautiful Wild Heart child who is often made wrong (they get angry because they have a passionate sense of justice), but they still need gentle nurturing and kind understanding.
From the inside out!
Instead of trying to fit in or worry about what everybody else thinks is right, just show up as yourself and the right people will come along. Even better, learn to be your own best friend and enjoy your own company.
Where you belong!
You will be in the excellent company of a group of Wild Hearts who just like you feel misunderstood or left out. They are sensitive and have lots of big icky feelings like you. They worry about what other people think of them too.
Finally somebody gets it!
You will feel understood and good about who you are. There will be no judgement and you will realise that how you feel is normal, acceptable and more common than you know (priceless and massively healing).
Safe online with Smiley
You will be safe online and taken care of by Smiley who understands completely how you feel. Her kindness and empathy are limitless and she sees you and accepts you just as you are. Your child can be anonymous if they wish to be.
