Parenting 101 ~ the Elisi TIR way!
Do you wish you knew what you were doing when it comes to parenting? Are you thriving or surviving?
Toddlers & teenagers, who are these aliens in the house??? Learning how to develop our higher faculties of reason, perception, will, imagination, intuition and, oh, what’s the other one?…… ah, memory, will teach you Alien speak or at least help you relate to these beautiful souls you brought into the world 🙂
There are so many books on parenting out there with conflicting advice that we end up in confusion & frustration.
What are you role modelling to your kids? Monkey see, monkey do, so if you’re not being the best version of you, that’s what they’ll model 🙂
What if there was a way to be a great parent by growing who you are as a person?
If I had learned the skills that I’ve gained through the Thinking into Results (TIR) programme, I certainly would have enjoyed parenting as well as being a much better one. It definitely wasn’t my forte!
Interestingly, these skills aren’t just parenting skills, they are life skills that impact every area in life. My relationships, health, finances would have been much stronger had I learned them sooner!
Do your kids get school reports that if they worked as hard as they daydream, they’d be successful?
Daydreaming & fantasizing are where creations & inventions come from. Everything in our physical world was once a fantasy!
What would your life look like if you started dreaming as big as you did when you were a child? When we allow ourselves to fantasise, we open up to more opportunities. Which by the way, are already there, we just haven’t noticed them because we’re not looking for them. Starting to dream this way will help you relate to your kids & move them closer to realising theirs goals 😉
Are you frustrated because your kids don’t do what you tell them to do?
Learning how to bridge the Knowing/Doing gap is one of the most valuable tools ever! We know what we need to do or stop doing to achieve our goals & yet we don’t do them. Identify the programme that is in the way, remove it, and install a more productive one & start moving toward your goal. When you learn this skill, you’ll be able to relate to your kids in a way that gets things done, bringing peace & harmony to your home. Now there’s an interesting concept!
Do your kids suffer from low self-esteem, mirrored from you perhaps? Worse still, are they hanging out with the ‘wrong’ crowd?
Learn how to help them build a strong sense of self-worth so that they become leaders instead of followers 🙂 Building your own self worth is a bonus 😉
Is your child easily distracted from their goals?
Learn how to help them recognise the terror barrier that stops us from achieving our goals & how to get through it. You’ll be amazed when you realise how this has shown up in your life!
Are you worried that your kids aren’t prepared for the “real” world?
Our education system doesn’t prepare our kids for the rapidly changing world they’re going into, so teach them the skills to be able to turn any situation into an opportunity. You’ll never need to worry about them again!
Whether we like it or not, we are role models for our children & they pick up on much more than just what they see. They are going into a world that is going to be so different from the world that we know so we owe it to them, to ourselves & to our society to become the best parent we can be to equip them with the skills necessary to thrive in the world. Great parenting starts with being the best version of ourselves so that our kids have something awesome to model 🙂 Learn more about how TIR can help here
