I checked out an audiobook at the library, The Conscious Parent and it has really helped open my eyes to the importance of working in partnership with your child.
I've grown up thinking that the parent is the authoritative figure in the parent-child relationship. Now that I'm a mom of two boys, I'm learning just how important it is to work alongside my two boys.
It was just the other day when I was meal planning for the week when I asked David what recipes we should make together. He shared his opinions and we did the meal planning together.
Wisdom of the day: Next time you interact with your child, focus on working alongside your child. Ask for their opinion and feedback about life decisions. This is a great way to give them a sense of ownership and to show them that their opinions matter.
