Tend to The Children by Nina Sidell, M.A.

Considering the mental anguish and upset in our current society today with the Cornoavirus, we either tune-out or focus on how we feel and what can create. Depending on where you live and what your personal story is defines your reality. If you feel comfortable diving into what you need to grow and change, even if it’s a new thing, this is good news for you as a parent.

This growth-oriented mentality works as you experience and overcome aspects of your personal realm of reality. The decision to openly deal with the truth of your thoughts and feelings is essential. It must exist for your children, too. You are at the helm of your children’s world. As a parent, whether you live with your offspring or not- you are the leader. With a general attitude of growth and learning, moving forward, everyone can grow and get their emotional needs met.

Here are some things to be aware of to parent today:

  1. Notice what your children are saying and not saying (possibly showing).
  2. Be cognizant of your children’s mood and energy levels; be understanding.
  3. Listen to your children and invite healthy contact and resolution.
  4. Create and maintain healthy boundaries for appropriate personal space.
  5. Emotionally engage your children in daily ways to stay connected and display respect for one person to another.
  6. Maintain school/ learning time, creative self-expression and socialization regularly.
  7. Be affectionately demonstrative; ask your children what they need and listen to them.
  8. Everyone must feel safe, no matter what.
  9. Devise a system that works at home to encourage safety, communication, and respecting a variety of needs.
  10. Respect differences between family members, see each one as a special individual in their own right.
  11. Create a system that works for yourself and your children!
  12. Seek out professional help or assistance if needed. Whether or not you have needed it before, this is a monumentally challenging time.

Stay safe and take good care. Please see my recent video on YouTube and my two books. Reach out if you need therapy. I am here to help. www.LiveInspiredwithNina.com

Power struggles between you and your child can happen at any age for any reason. Join me to learn how to spend more time getting along and less time struggling. Special attention will be paid to morning, bedtime, homework, and mealtime routines.  Nina will be sharing her wisdom and strategies from her Mom’s Choice Award-Winning and Deepak Chopra endorsed book, “Parenting for Life- Consciously Creating Your Lifetime Relationship with Your Child.”

I will be speaking at two times: from 11:30 am- 12:00 pm and from 12:30 pm- 1:00 pm. We will be meeting in Conference Room J @: Doylestown Hospital.

We will be hosting two groups of parents (community members and staffers) as well as an inter-hospital Go To Webinar during each presentation.

For your copy of my Award-Winning book, “Parenting for Life-Consciously Creating Your Lifetime Relationship with Your Child” go to: https://www.amazon.com/Parenting-Life-Nina-Sidell-M-A/dp/1506175589 

Open yourself to living in a conscious and deliberate way. That includes enjoying the time you and your child spend together, whether you have moments or hours at a time to do so. When you live and parent consciously and really just enjoy your child, any time you spend together becomes priceless. “Parenting for Life”, Nina Sidell, M.A.
