What is an Empowered Parent?
When I wrote my book for parents and titled it Empowered Parents Empowering Kids, I had a vision of the parent – child relationship transforming into something greater than it had ever been before, at least for many families. I find that not many parents stop to consider whether they are empowered or not AND whether they are empowering their children. They may assume that because they are parents they are empowered. And if so they may be doing themselves and their children a disservice.
To be empowered is to receive and acknowledge that you have been given the authority, ability and power. Have you ever considered who gives this power? And how it is to be used for the good of the family, in the case of parents? What do you have power over- your kids, your family, yourself?
This examination of empowerment may be useful as you look at your role as a parent? In writing my book, I wanted to share the idea that being an empowered parent is about a parent receiving and acknowledging their own inner power to access a greatness inside that brings forth genuine caring, kindness, and nurturing love for self as well as for others. Empowerment is not something that is meant to be given away once it is acknowledged. We receive and connect to our inner power when we acknowledge the power of Being. Just by being we hold the power.
For proof of this, just go back to the day that your child was born.
