How to Enjoy The Holidays With Family (hint: stop trying to impress!)

Sometimes when we get together with extended family, it can feel like a bit of a performance. We want our kids to be scrubbed up and looking their best. We need to prove how smart, athletic or well-behaved they are. We feel the pressure to appear to be excellent parents, who have it all together. I can’t be the only one who feels this, right?

The truth is, that our children are not actors in some play and neither are we! None of us is with family to please and perform. Let go of the feeling that you have something to prove. If there’s one thing to remember this holiday season, it’s that our kids are people not performers. When we go to family gatherings, how about we embrace vulnerability and show up as we are. Openhearted, authentic, and willing to connect for real. Of course we all want to be the best versions of ourselves, but anyone who understands childhood development knows that children get dirty, have tantrums and meltdowns, need attention, break things, go wild, and don’t always make us look good! Anyone who doesn’t “get” that is going to be pretty disappointed when we come to visit.  It’s OK for family to expect us to adhere to unreasonable timetables, to not understand why we have a bed time, why we restrict sugar intake or screen usage, or why we don’t want plastic toys up the wazoo. They don’t have to understand. 

The point of hanging out with family is to connect with them. Let’s focus on that and release ourselves of the pressure to impress them! You don’t have to apologize for raising human kids, or for being human yourself. You don't have to apologize for raising human kids, or for being human yourself.via @ParentingJunkieTweet This You also don’t have to conform! Instead, put those expectations of theirs to one side. Show up wholeheartedly, vulnerably, and authentically.

You be you.

Let your kids be themselves.

And connect with your family. 

However that happens…or doesn’t! If the people we love can’t love us as we are, then what kind of connection is that anyway? Let’s show up as ourselves and love them for themselves too. That’s loving parenting and parenting from love.

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."⁣

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. ⁣
