Parents are a child’s first and most influential teacher, from the time of conception, a child observes everything the parents do. They observe the way that you interact with them, yourself and others.
It’s very easy to slip into the trap of projecting your feelings, wishes, and desires on your child because it comes out of a place of concern and wanting the best for them, however, this can sometimes be a catalyst for hampering the quality of a parent-child relationship.
Understanding what your goal is as a parent is for your child works almost like a compass, it gives you direction in the way that you bring your child up. It helps you understand whether your actions, words, and behaviors towards your child will work towards your goal or against it.
Creating a bond of trust between you and your child cultivates a beautiful parent-child relationship. This can be done by showing your child that you are actively listening to them. Active listening is showing your child that you are hearing and understanding what they are saying, this can be done by:
- Making eye contact, asking them questions related to what they are sharing, nodding your head while they speak
- Ask them about their day, ask them to share things that they enjoyed, what they liked about the experience and so on. Doing this for your child shows them that you care about what they have to offer – explicitly and implicitly.

I have always been inclined towards psychology. I took my first psychology class in 9th grade and I never looked back. I have studied the subject for around 10 years and have had various experiences within the field.
During my undergraduate program, I started working for a franchise called Brighter Minds. I was a facilitator for 4 years where I conducted a whole-brain development program for children between the ages of 5-15 years. It worked to enhance a child's observation skills, emotional integration, focus, attention, memory amongst many other things.
I have also done a course called Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching from ICHARS (Institute of Clinical Hypnosis and Other Related Sciences) to get certified as a Life Coach and NLP Practitioner.
I am also a meditation practitioner, I am part of the Heartfulness Practice. Some of the issues I talk about in my blog will have reference to the material I get from Heartfulness. The practice has equipped me to be a healer as well, which brings me to one more skill I have, which is Polarity Healing.
Polarity Healing is a way to balance out the positive and negative charge we all possess as humans. When these energies are imbalanced, we feel all sorts of unpleasant feelings like anger, frustration, irritation, and restlessness, etc. Polarity healing balances out the energies and brings it back to a normal state, reducing unpleasant feelings.
I have created this blog as a way to collate my knowledge and expertise and build a credible platform of information. I learn new information and techniques every day, this a way for me to share it with the world.
