Let’s Support Our Loved Ones

Hi my friend,

We are feeling stressed.

So are our loved ones.

Can we lovingly support each other as we ride out this corona virus crisis together? Particularly since we are spending so much time together in our homes?

There are many ways to support each other.

One way is to be attuned and offer our loved ones the gift of a compassionate and listening ear.

Good listening makes it safe for others to talk, to say what they need to say. This brings greater love, unity and goodwill to our relationships. It also helps our loved ones process their feelings and inner experience and, thereby, brings them relief and an increase in optimism and confidence.

I just launched my new course entitled “The Power of Deep Listening” which will teach you how to be present with others in a loving, safe, and empowering way. Perhaps something we could all use right now.

For a limited time, I’m offering it for a significantly discounted price. Get more information or enroll now by clicking here.

And I wish you all the best as you adapt to our ever-changing reality. Remember, we’re in this together.

    I would like more information about raising a daughter with morals and ethics in the world today. I also need help with my step sons who are older and don’t respect me and my wishes about setting a good example for the younger sister.

      Hi Gina. I appreciate your question. Instilling good morals and ethics in our children is a challenge when they can experience so many friends and influences that are not necessarily consistent with our own values. However, I always recommend that you begin with building a good relationship with her. Take time to talk with her by being curious and interested in her life. You don’t want to probe or lecture, but ask questions and listen. Find times when she’s soft and vulnerable, like as she’s getting into bed or going to sleep at night. can you spend a little time with her at the end of the day connecting ? Perhaps you can sit on her bed, stroke her back and ask about how she’s doing or what’s going on in her life. This has to be natural and not feel controlling to her. But the more you can listen out of genuine interest, the more you’ll be cultivating a relationship and the more she’s likely to open up and talk to you. You have to be a safe place and nonjudgmental as she talks.

      I’m not sure if you’re aware, but I do have a book entitled Raising Responsible, Emotionally Mature Children. You can get it on my webpage. I also offer an audio of the book and an online video program on parenting.

      My best to you in your parenting.
