The 4 Parenting Superpowers

Superpower: ‘Self-Regulation’

Staying calm and maintaining a scream-free home is a priority for you. 

You know that responding from a place of anger doesn’t help anyone, and you choose to focus on regulating your own emotions so you can respond calmly to the situation rather than react…

…staying calm when your child screams (even when they yell, “You’re the meanest mommy in the world.”)

… keeping your cool while toys are thrown (even when it’s the third time that morning) 

maintaining your patience (even if it feels like they’re not listening or cooperating to anything you ask)

Give yourself a pat on the back. Staying calm while raising kids takes consistent work and you’re doing it! Well done!

Superpower: ‘Welcoming feelings’

You welcome all feelings with empathy so your child can feel seen, heard, and acknowledged. 

And even though your child’s big feelings can be hard to deal with, you make a real effort to hold space for their emotions…

…using kind words to acknowledge their frustration (even when it’s because you cut their muffin the ‘wrong way)

…coaching them with alternative ways to express their feelings (even when they’re acting out in aggression because they can’t have more screen time)                                    

…recognizing their need to get it all out (even if it feels like they’re whining about every single thing)

Well done!! Give yourself a hug. Your compassion deserves celebration.

Superpower: ‘Connection’

You truly delight in spending time with your kids. 

And even though in modern family life it takes effort to find time to be together, you’re willing to do what it takes to find the time to connect with your kids…

…turn your phone on do not disturb during family time (even though you’d love to scroll through Instagram)

…read the most beloved book again at bedtime (even when you want to continue binge-watching your current Netflix show)

rearrange schedules to prioritize family meals (even if it means giving the kids a hearty afterschool snack so they can wait until your partner is home)

Well done! Give yourself a hug. Your commitment deserves celebration!

Superpower: ‘Setting Limits’

You know your kid will listen, or cooperate with what you are asking, when you have given them a reason to buy into your request.

And even though getting their attention can be frustrating, when you do, you’re able to get them to follow your instructions by…

…following through with your request (even when they say, “You’re the meanest mommy in the world”) 

holding high expectations for their behaviour (when you tell them to stop fighting with their siblings, they do)

…recognizing that being flexible helps (even if it feels like you’ve already been more than fair) 

Give yourself a pat on the back! Getting kids to cooperate takes time and effort.

So, what’s peaceful parenting anyway?

 

Peaceful parenting is an approach that uses kind, firm limits with lots of empathy.

We’re in charge but we give kids the support they need to meet our expectations. We emphasize connection and prioritize our relationship with our kids.

Because guess what?

Our relationship is the most effective way we can influence our kids.

And as a parent with solid self-regulation skills, you’ve got what it takes to build a long-lasting great relationship with yours.
