BE A SUPER MOM TODAY

I have come to understand that I have not come forth as a mother or wife to get everyone to follow the truth which I think is the truth.

I have not come forth to encourage my children into a world of conformity or sameness.

I understand that in conformity there is not the diversity that
Stimulates creativity.

And that in focusing on bringing about conformatity I am pointing to
An ending and not a continuing. ^

I went to a book club where Deborah M. Roffman, author, offered a handout which I would like to share with you here:

“Nurturing is a Five Piece Suit” (in part)

1. Affirmations

Understanding and honoring your child’s unique developmental stage and providing UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for who the child is

2. INFORMATION

Providing alternative points of view and promoting critical thinking

3. CLARITY ABOUT VALUES

Naming the values you want your children to value; SPEAKING MORE about values then rules.

4. LIMIT SETTING

Making sure clear and age appropriate boundaries are firmly in place and being prepared to negotiate limits when appropriate as children mature

5. ANTICIPATORY GUIDANCE

Helping children anticipate WHAT IFS; helping them walk through
In advance situations they may face

Turning children gradually over to themselves


^Ester and Jerry Hicks the Law of Attraction
