Learn to be Heart Focused
When I started to understand the depth of what it meant to be heart focused in my parenting – how we raised our kids changed. It changed from just doing what our parents did, it changed from just following someone else’s parenting course. We started to truly teach and encourage our kids to understand, choose and live out the beliefs, virtues and passions that were beneficial to them.
Understanding what is in the heart though is a tricky thing – and as the children grow older we have to help them understand their heart, and be ready to make choices consistent with the values they hold to. But it starts much younger, as we teach them beliefs and virtues, and show them how to live that out.
This parenting worksheet will help you reflect on what you think is going on in your child’s heart so you can focus on the underlying issues rather than just their behaviour.
