Amazing Parenting: I am re-reading The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Awesome book! I just had to share this piece: “I treat people I love with love because this may be the last day that I can tell you how much I love you. I don’t know if I’m going to see you again, so I don’t want to fight with you.” (page 119)
IF the interaction I am having with my child (and the one you are having with yours) WAS the LAST interaction we’d have with them, how would we be? We can apply this to cleaning bedrooms, doing homework, helping in the kitchen, watching a movie, or simply listening to them share the happenings of their day. It sure makes me get more PRESENT with NOW.
