Spread #129- Defiance May 5, 2011Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
I strive to be a good mama, with all my might. Sometimes I consider myself a good one when I feel I achieve success in guiding my kids to ask questions and to question: practice critical thinking, follow their heart and mind truthfully, challenge anyone’s stagnant thought forms and behavior patterns, including ours, parents, and of course their own. So how come when I detect subtle resistance or face spirited opposition from my kids I feel like I am not doing so well as a parent? How does it really work? How come I like for them to have original thinking, have their own perceptions of events that take place in the world and in their lives, and in the same time want them to have mine, or if not, at least be silent? Honestly..
