the conscious parent’s pledge

December 26, 2010

While visiting my friend Sarit’s house this week, I saw this pledge on her refrigerator and thought it was noteworthy.  We all could use a reminder like this from time to time!


I commit myself to the following, with love, awareness, and compassion:

To use intentional dialogue.

To provide you with safety, support, and structure.

To work on my own issues so I can be a better parent to you.

To meet your needs as you evolve through the different stages of childhood.

To stay connected with you in positive ways.

To have faith in both of us as we grow and learn together.

This is an excerpt from the book Giving The Love That Heals – which I have not read but may have to pick up!
