Parenting from Fear ~ Petrina Fava
Does this sound like you? You worry that your kids will get kidnapped. You can’t even fathom the idea of your children being seriously injured. You have nightmares about your children dying. You play out every possible worst case scenario over and over in your mind. You do everything possible to supervise your children’s every move, and when you can’t, you are sick with worry. Do you believe that a healthy dose of fear keeps your kids safe? Are you parenting from fear? Imagine you are a passenger in a car. Would you feel more safe if the driver was making decisions based on fear or awareness? If you’re parenting from fear you are distracted from what you really need to know. What if trusting your awareness and not being controlled by fear, was the best way to protect your kids?
