It is important as Parents to "be your best you". In the case of bullying it is even more important for parents to strive to role model and grow as people in this time of crisis.
Taking care of yourself and learning new skills will help you cope with bullying and it's effect on you, your child and your family. Increasing your self confidence will impact all areas of your life.
So many times I hear people saying "this is just the way I am" and while that is true and I love the way you are...I accept you in all your perfection.
However, I believe you can be your best you as there is always room to grow and learn. No matter your age or back ground I believe we all have an infinit capacity to be a better version of who we are.
Dealing with Bullying does not have to be a crisis. Once we understand the cycle of grief and are able to harness our innate reactions it can be a time of incredible opportunity to strengthen you relationship with your child and help you both grow.
Small shifts in the way we think can cause huge ripples of change to occur and help you be your best you. A good example is Bullying Beliefs which are simply other peoples version of what is true for them that has been repeated and you accepted or not. They are just thoughts...nothing more and nothing less. It is how we act on them that makes the difference.
So, Let's play a little game called "WHAT IF"
Take some time to consider the following questions.
1) WHAT IF...you had an endless supply of money and resources...what would you do with your life? How would you fill your days? What are you passionate about? What are you doing when you loose track of time? What would make you catapult out of bed ?
2) WHAT IF...you were the super hero parent and you knew just what to say and when to say it and could protect your kids and give them everything they need and want?
3) WHAT IF...you never had to worry about your child being bullied or bullying others?
Feel free to have some fun with this...what if you were the next man/women on the moon? what if you could break a world record at the olympics? What if...what if...use your imagination.
Now, back to reality. The two biggest obstacles to having your what if life is time and money. Ever notice if you have money you don't seem to have the time or the opposite.
I believe these two obstacles can be over come. Simple shifts, tried, tested and true strategies and a guide to help you over the inevitable obstacles can make all the difference. I can help you make your What if's a reality. Consider hiring a coach to help.
