Teaching Kids Awareness Instead of Safety ~ Petrina Fava
Messy Adventures in Living ~ Petrina Fava Radio Show
What if telling kids how to be safe based on your fears and judgments, is actually more likely to put them in harm’s way? We dis-empower our kids when we impose “safety rules” on them. It teaches them that our fears and judgments are greater than their awareness. It teaches them to make conclusions; actually it teaches them to “buy” our conclusions.
Safety is a lie. There are no formulas or rules to follow with awareness. There is no one way to be safe. What if the ability to have razor sharp awareness that is far beyond any logical thought, together with the willingness to completely trust their knowing, could be the best way for your kids to avoid harm? To know when they need to leave a situation even if it means breaking the rules or getting in trouble? How do we show our kids how to be that energy? How do we empower them to trust their knowing?
What if it starts with us, trusting them more than we trust fear?
Join me for some tips and tools you can use to break away from fear and empower your kids!
