Intentional Model

I love thinking amazing things about my kids.

I feel empowered!

My kids feel supported!

We all show up better!!!!

Here’s one of my amazing thought loops I created about my kids.

🧠 MY THOUGHT: My children are doing the very best they can.

>> When I think that thought I feel…

❤️ MY EMOTION: Trust

>> When I feel that emotion I start doing…

💥 MY ACTIONS: I wake up and choose to believe in my children. I up-level my parenting 1% every week and don’t beat myself up that I’m not further along. I trust that what I’m doing is enough to change the trajectory of my life. Then my perfectionistic brain relaxes. I get curious about what my kids need and what I need to do to serve them better. I create parenting protocols to help me in tricky situations. I remember that everything is an opportunity to learn.

>> As a result of all of these actions I create…

🙌 MY RESULT: I trust myself and I trust my kids. We all keep getting a little better each and every day.


See how that works?

I refocus my brain on a thought I can 100% believe in.

I put my attention on what’s working and how I can do better instead of on how I’m failing or where my kids are falling short.

I don’t think of parenting as something unpleasant that I have to do.

I don’t think of my kids as needing to be fixed.

I get a bit better at believing in my parenting, and my kids a little more each and every day.

The thought, “My kids are doing their very best in this moment.” — broke my brain and completely turned my world upside down.

At the time, enjoying parenting sounded about as possible as enjoying a colonoscopy.

At first, I didn’t totally believe it.

BUT it got me relentlessly curious, set me off on years of active trial and error and exploration…. to see how this thought could be right. I wanted it to be true.

…and the result?

Connect Method Parenting would NOT be here if it weren’t for the tiny seed this thought sowed all those years ago.

It changed my life.
