For many of us, these examples of a ‘disobedient’ child requiring ‘behaviour correction’ might seem like common daily occurrences of little consequence; and from a parent perspective they likely are. Yet from the perspective of a developing psyche and the developing sense of self of a child, I wonder if our daily responses to our child’s behaviour are anything but trivial.Is our quest for the obedient child all wrong?
"It feels like I've shed some weight. Even though I was hyper-independent in what I used to do, it just feels like I'm aiming to please less and I'm aiming to live more. Now I'm looking backwards in our heritage and I'm finding this swell of creative energy and ideas." -- Sikh Knowledge
What elements of our beautiful and rich history are we carrying forward? What are we unlearning and leaving behind? What are we digging into and learning with intention? How do we do all of this in an aesthetically beautiful way that feels warm and welcoming and loving?
