“Next time you find yourself in a standoff with your child, ask yourself, what would you do if you weren’t afraid?” -Sarah Rosensweet

I’m pretty sure that when my kids were small, a lot of people around me thought I was a pushover.

That I was coddling them.

That I should be harder on them. 

But I was NEVER afraid that my peaceful strategies weren’t going to work out. Everything I did came out of love and trusting the process of their growth. 

Now, don’t think I’m perfect or that I think I’m perfect. And it’s not like I didn’t have my days and years of overwhelm when they were little.

It’s just that this aspect of peaceful parenting came really naturally to me.

I pretty nearly always chose love rather than fear, at least with my kids. I trusted that they wanted to be good and that they would learn what they needed to learn. I wasn’t afraid to choose love.

And you know what? I think it worked 🙂  The “Kids” are now, 14, 17 and 20 and they are pretty stellar humans.

Next time you find yourself in a standoff with your child, ask yourself, what would you do if you weren’t afraid?

:: Afraid that you need to hold the limit no matter the cost.

:: Afraid of what people will think.

:: Afraid of how they might turn out.

:: Afraid that you need to “do something!”

What if you could TRUST in the process and choose radical love?

I can’t wait to hear what happens when you do.
