Never underestimate the power and influence of a parent on a child’s sense of who they are. The truism, “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Rules The World” sums up why we behave the way we do.
If every parent in this world was taught to exercise emotional intelligence in his/her own life, we would have well adjusted kids prepared to become effective leaders of tomorrow. They would be magnificent leaders with a vision for humanity and this planet.
Our children would be the Earth’s future custodians who will balance economic growth and simultaneously manage of our precious natural resources without destroying it.
We would have our personal finances in order, our personal lives in order.
It’s a big call, but the reason why I am calling it is because it is possible.
Rachael Downie is an educator and author of Parenting with Hope: Five easy steps to take the frustration out of your daily life, reclaim your time and create a better relationship with your children. She is well credentialed to speak in this regard as Rachael is also a wife and mother of 4 under the age of 10.
Listen to the full interview below:
The impetus for writing her book stemmed from Rachael’s own experiences of having to learn to parent on the fly. The many parenting books available focused on modifying the child’s behavior, what was sorely missing was anything remotely close to helping the new parent handle their own emotions in this life changing event.
Rachael’s book fills this chasm with her highly practical yet sympathetic instructions in helping the new parent gain the awareness and emotional intelligence skills critical to helping their children develop into happy, wealthy and well balanced little people.
