How do you maintain mindful relationships with your children in this frenzied, disconnected world?
Most of us believe we have parenthood planned perfectly; when we’ll become parents, how we’ll parent, even anticipating how our children will respond to our parenting. Yet, reality proves to us on a daily basis that nothing in parenting goes as planned. With all of life’s ups and downs, outside influences, and daily stressors, how do we navigate parenting?
In Parenting at Your Best, you’ll learn how to:
* Be a role model for what you desire in your child’s life
* Be involved in your child’s life, but not excessively involved
* Create lasting memories with your child by being present
Parenting at Your Best comes from the reflections of parents who lost their only child, parents who truly know the value of each moment. Their desire is to share the lessons they’ve learned so you may apply them to living in the moment with your own children.
Do you wish you could write to your child, yet you have no idea what to say?
This unique guide comes from Roni Wing Lambrecht, a mom who began journaling to her only child, Dalton, before he was born. Sadly, Dalton passed away prior to having the opportunity to read all the wonderful words his mom had written to him.Roni and, her husband, John, believe Dalton’s Journal has been immensely helpful in their grieving process and they often credit the journal with saving their marriage as they travel through the grieving process. They want to be sure every parent/guardian has the opportunity to put their love for their children into words, even when parents assume they don’t know how to write.
The prompts within this guide embrace numerous topics Roni had written about in the journal to her son, and even more topics she had never thought of until he was gone. The journal you write can be thought of as a gift to your child, with the intention they’ll someday read and share it with their own children. It’s also a beautiful gift when life’s circumstances have been altered, and either the parent or the child are no longer around to speak of the memories contained within the journal.
The most precious gift you can give your child is your love. Showing your love in writing makes it a tangible treasure forever.
