We all know what is Positive Parenting and why it is so important for our children’s upbringing. But today I want to ask all parents to check on their positivity meter and understand how positive you are.
Let’s do a simple exercise. Answer these questions and make note of your choices. Do not scroll to the end and spoil the excitement.
Q 1. Given a choice what would you prefer to do on a normal working day?
Q 2. What is the first thing you would like to hear in the morning?
Q 3. How much time do you give to yourself mindfully every day?
Q 4. When was the last time you complimented someone?
Q 5. What do you do when you receive a compliment?
Q 6. Your idea of relieving stress?
Q 7. How do you close your day?
Q 8. How do you spend your weekends?
Q 9. When you are angry what do you do?
Q 10. How often do you smile?
Q 11. What makes you happy?
Now take a deep breath and check, if you answered mostly in C’s or D’s you need to change the way you think. Get up and get going now, for tomorrow may or may not come.
If you answered mostly in B’s then you are moving closer to thinking happy, all you need is a still more guidance and support. Keep going and you shall be thinking positively soon.
But if you answered in A’s then congratulate yourself for keeping your sunny side up and thinking positive.
Positivity is not a destination it is a journey. It requires greater dose of mindfulness and lifestyle modifications to stay positive and more importantly remain positive. Just like happiness positivity is a choice. And for us to foster positive parenting, we need to be positive first. Once this is done, the outcome will and shall ensure positive parenting. All you need is to foster the power of the mind, body and soul and reap the benefits of positive thinking.
Love yourself to love others thus enabling positive parenting.
Bring in some compassion in yourself for compassionate parenting.
Happy Positive Parenting
