Raising Healthy Children

You don't have to be perfect to raise emotionally healthy, loving, and non fearful children. But they have to know what is Real and authentic. When you can recognize the areas where you do not have healthy patterns and you point these areas out to your children, explaining why you continue to have the reactions you do, you will give them a base of comparison. Instead of a child, who is a sponge, blindly accepting their parent's behaviors and judgments as gospel, the child will be able to see that there is a different way, even if the parent continues to react in the same fashion. You don't have to be in perfect emotional/spiritual health to raise healthy children, but you do have to recognize those unhealthy areas and patterns within yourself (being brutally honest with yourself), and you have to be willing to discuss those with your children. This is also true with your significant other or good friend. Awakening, being authentic, takes a lot of courage and a strong will to push through and make it a better life for yourself and those around you.
