Create A Home Full of Love
by Annie Desantis
A wonderful woman I know, Robyn Ladinsky has written a fabulous e-book called "Create A Home Full of Love, A Guide to Take Parents from Chaos to Calm."
Parents sometimes get stuck, struggle to cope, and get overwhelmed with the big job that parenting is.
Looking after yourself as a parent is one of the most important things you can do to improve your parenting skills. When parents are running on empty, you don't have much left for your kids. Maybe this is a timely reminder to make sure
you build in enough time to recharge your own batteries.
What are the things you can do that fill you up, and help you to thrive?
This e-book contains such important messages for parents, including a great explanation of love in relationships, and of course, particularly for parents.
Robyn gives very good examples of the consequences of not taking care of our emotional, physical or spiritual needs, and sets up some great exercises to both help parents explore how they take care of themselves and how to help you to identify the love language you use with your children.
Everything we do as parents, is giving an example to our children and Robyn helps us to examine the kinds of messages or limiting beliefs we are modeling for our kids.
She uses case studies to illustrate ideas, and gives a range of areas parents can focus on to take better care of ourselves and build our internal resources.
I particularly like how Robyn talks of love and discipline, focusing on what does my child need, rather than how can I correct this bad behavior.
Oh yes, I almost forgot to tell you, there are also some great bonuses with her book!
Well worth reading, you'll get heaps out of it,
