Parenting quotes

Give thought only to that which you want

The child is thinking, and receiving vibrational thought from you on the day that he enters your environment. That is the reason that beliefs are transmitted so easily from parent to child, from parent to child, from parent to child.

The child is vibrationally receiving your fears, your beliefs, even without your spoken word.

If you want to do that which is of greatest value for your child, give thought only to that which you want, and your child will receive only those wanted thoughts.

Don’t amplify the inappropriate

If we had a child, or anyone, and we caught them doing something inappropriate, we would not amplify it with our words. We would identify what it is we do not want, and then out of it would come the rocket of desire of what we do want, and then we would just visualize, visualize, visualize, until we find peace within our vision.

When you make someone and their action the heart of a vision that you’ve spent time on — your relationship improves, your experience is better, and they receive the benefit of the experience.

But if you catch them, and see them, and worry about it, and put mechanisms in place to prevent it, now you have not only amplified it, you have now made a commitment that is hooking you both into that, until usually it gets big enough that you break apart, and then you attract others to fulfill that role.

Terrorized children

Most parents, when they see children not terrorized by the things that terrorize them, they work very hard until they’ve finally got you terrorized. They teach you those irrational fears. Well-meaning, but they do it just the same.

Let children make their own decisions

Parents don’t want their children to make the wrong decisions, so they don’t allow them to make the decision. And then the child becomes dependent, and then the parent resents that, and it gets off into a blameful thing early on.

If you are encouraging children to do all that they can do — and not squelching the natural eagerness that is within them, so that they can shine and thrive and show you and themselves how good they are at adapting to physical experience — then everyone wins.

Choosing for your children

Parents can’t choose the mates of their children or the behavior of their children. You actually can’t choose anything for your children without disempowering them.

Don’t let their behavior choose your emotional disc

If we were giving one encouragement to parents, it would be to deliberately choose your emotional disc - your alignment with who-you-really-are - and then talk to your kids.

Don’t let the subject at hand be the reason for choosing your emotional disc. Don’t let the fact that they have misbehaved or disobeyed be the reason that you feel the way you do.
