Authoritarian, Permissive, or Loving Parenting
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
The pendulum often swings back and forth, in different generations, between authoritarian and permissive parenting. You will discover that neither of these parenting models is loving or supportive of you or of your children’s highest good.
Anything can become an addiction, depending upon your intent. Today notice, without judgment, your addictions - the things you do to avoid your feelings of loneliness, heartbreak and helplessness over others. Notice substances, activities, and behaviors toward others. Ask yourself, "Am I doing this because it is loving to myself and supports the highest good of my soul's journey, or am I doing this to avoid taking responsibility for feelings?" Awareness gives you new choices.
