Words of Wisdom

This was the daily parenting tip today and it is so fitting for something I have been struggling with lately.... enjoy


The Shadow of a Doubt ::

When you're worried about what others think of yourparenting, consider this:MAYBE they're judging you; maybe not. But *you* areDEFINITELY judging yourself!Your emotional reaction (worry) is the tip-off to yourself-judgment. If you were absolutely confident inyour parenting, you might be *aware* of others judgingyou, and that would inform your choices, but itwouldn't get under your skin.This doesn't mean you should try to eliminate alldoubt. Uncertainty is a necessary part of anyleading-edge path. It makes you a better learner.When you embrace doubt and practice being confidentlyuncertain*, you'll stop needing others' approval.Better yet, some of them will drop their judgments andgrow to appreciate or even emulate your ways!
