Parenting With Unconditional Acceptance

Do you ever wish your child was more outgoing?
More of a leader?
Or perhaps you wish they were more gentle?
Or more polite?
Or more helpful?
Or less noisy and loud?
Or more proactive and assertive?
Or less demanding and aggressive?
Or more advanced academically?
Or more developed?
Or more skillful at sports?
Or more talented in the arts?
Or more loving?
Or less dependent?


If you’ve had any of these thoughts, or feelings like them, you are not alone. We all hold a fantasy picture in our minds of the perfect child that would most please us, would impress others and would serve as shining proof that WE are fantastic parents.


I mean, look at this amazing kid we’ve produced!

But here’s the thing: you are not producing a kid.

You are not creating anything. You may have birthed this child, and you are caring for and raising them – yes – but they are NOT your project. You are not an architect, a carpenter, or a painter creating a masterpiece. This is a MYTH that we are being sold by culture.

Parents, everyday, are praised when their children behave in certain ways and achieve certain things, and admonished when they fall short in the eyes of society: An aggressive child? What’s wrong with the parents? A shy child? Well, that’s because you helicopter them. A slow child? What, didn’t you get the memo to play Baby Einstein intravenously??

Guys, it’s become laughable. Sure, how we parent our children has an affect. A big one! Heck, I wouldn’t be so passionate about peaceful parenting if I didn’t know that to be true. BUT the effects of our parenting are primarily in forming a secure attachment with our children. The effects come through our relationship with them, not in our molding and shaping their very “selves” in our image.

No, children are born with their own unique signature style, their own characteristics and temperament – that while most definitely can be effected by their environments and nurture – are also securely rooted in their nature.

It’s time that as a society and as parents we begin seeing children as whole and complete individuals who are complex and rich beings just like you and I. With weaknesses and strengths, likes and dislikes, boiling points and goals of their very own that are completely independent from us.

Look At Your Child With Fresh Eyes

So here’s my invitation to you. I want you, and I, to look at our child with fresh eyes. Look at them not as YOUR child (i.e. your project), but as A child. A person, in fact. A person with a complex, diverse, rich mixture of ingredients that makes them the unique and wholly idiosyncratic person that they are. And accept them EXACTLY as they are. RIGHT NOW. NOT as their potential to change. Not as the adult you hope they become. Not as their future achievements and success. But as WHO THEY ARE, intrinsically, truly, right now in this very moment.

Accept THIS child’s forgetfulness or clumsiness. Accept their loud voice. Accept their sassy attitude. Accept their autonomy. Accept their flighty, flakey, flatness. Accept their unabashed affection. Accept their shyness. Accept their aggression. Accept their questioning, critical thinking mind. Accept their leadership. Accept their slow pace.

So, should you sit back and do nothing when your child bumps up against the world in conflict or confusion? Of course not! We can help them, guide them and set boundaries without trying to change who they are. Just as we do not want to be changes by our spouse, our friend – or our parents – our children never need be changed by us. They don’t need to be DEVELOPED. They simply need guidance and help in problem solving, trouble shooting, figuring things out.

Imagine you had grown up accepted for who you really are, warts and all.

Imagine your parents gave you the feeling day in, day out that you are enough, that you are worthy, that you are ok just as you were born.

Life might had been a bit different, no?

You might have saved some energy on some unnecessary  battles, no?

Let’s do that for our children.

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Check out my IGTV for more amazing success stories.⁣

Parent In Love is a 6-month deep-dive online program that will transform your marriage from the inside out. ⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣
