Practice conscious parenting to increase connections.
Children who are fully listened to feel loved, recognized, and valued. Being completely present increases the family’s connection, understanding, and enjoyment.
Identify the types of attention you give your child: form-based or formless.
Form-based attention is always connected with doing or evaluating. “Tidy up your room. Do this. Stop that. Hurry up.” Formless attention is being completely present.
Practice being alert, still, and completely present as you interact with your child.
Be completely present, not wanting anything other than that moment as it is.
