I want my child’s heart NOT just their obedience


When it’s all said and done I want my child’s heart NOT just their obedience.

I want my children to know I deeply love them, and I want to be deeply loved by my children.

I want a relationship with a human, not a well-trained animal.

I want to understand my children on a deep level.

I want to know who my children are, what they stand for, what they are passionate about.

I want them to know I will always be on their side no matter what.

I want them to know when things get messy that I…

…still believe they are amazing.

…deeply care for them and am listening.

…won’t leave their side if they’re upset, frustrated, or explosive.

I want my kids to look at me and think,

“I can trust mom no matter what. I feel safe with her.”

My top priority isn’t obedience or compliance.

My top priority is my relationship with my children.

My top priority is creating heartfelt trust, belief, and love for my children.

My top priority is to bring compassion and empathy when the teenager is talking back or the toddler is throwing a fit.

My top priority is to give them ME when they aren’t listening, not give them a consequence or a time-out.

When the relationship is my top priority, everything else falls into place in due time.

If I have my child’s heart nothing else matters.

This is what we do inside Tribe as we implement Connect Method Parenting.
