This article is different from the other mindful parenting advice I’ve read. It actually addresses the pain a parent feels caused by the voice within. The voice that scares us about our child’s future and beats us up for our mistakes. It reminds us to be aware of the pain and allow/accept it. But remembering that, as the article says, “The mindfulness term for this is “acceptance.” And by acceptance, I don’t mean resignation—the sense of giving up and being defeated by the pain of parenting. No, it’s an active, empowered choice to lie back and let pain move through you.”
You’ll also learn the acronym N.A.P.P., which helps us remember how to do this important work. Yep, parents, you take the napp for a change. 🙂 Please read and enjoy.
