Permission to Parent: The Mindful Parenting Conundrum

Mindful parenting is a buzzword that has been gaining a lot of traction in recent years, and with good reason. There are many benefits, but as with any parenting trend, a completely mindful approach, won’t work for everyone.

Simply put, being mindful (whether it pertains to eating, parenting or life) means learning to slow down and becoming aware of your thoughts and feelings, so that you can be present in the current moment/situation.

Playing good cop, bad cop with your partner in this whirlwind called parenting? What is the solution? This talk is for you if you desire to learn how to work together as parents and find harmony between your different parenting styles.

Let’s begin with a quick quiz!

Which description sounds most like you as a parent?

  1. I love to cuddle my children, I go out of my way to meet their every need and I tend to indulge them.
  2. I keep a firm grip on my children and enforce many rules in my home.
  3. I oversee my children’s lives, teaching them life skills and helping them apply these lessons.
  4. I support my children in everything they do, but I stand on the sideline and let them take ownership of their own lives.
  5. I love having fun with my children and spending time with them like I do with my friends.

Can you see yourself in one of these? Are more than one applicable to you?

Most of us have a preferred parenting style – a way of childrearing that comes most naturally to us. Yet, most of us can (and should learn to) adapt our style according to a given situation and our children’s developmental age.

Okay, so let’s unpack the differing styles and see where you fit in most comfortably.
