Parent Promise

The Parent Promise

  • I will love my children unconditionally and be sure to show them the pleasure they give me.
  • I will be patient – with them and with myself.
  • I will be clear with my expectations, consistent with my follow through and firm when I need to set a boundary.
  • I will respect my children’s privacy and not discuss my children to other people in a way that is embarrassing or shaming.
  • I will model how to treat others with respect, dignity and compassion.
  • I will give them spontaneous bursts of affection everyday.
  • I will tell myself “I can handle this”.
  • I will allow them the freedom to make mistakes so that they can learn how to clean them up.
  • I will validate their feelings rather than talk them out of them, tell them they are wrong or minimize them.
  • I will encourage their individual self expression.
  • I will remember that my children are here to teach me just as much as I am here to teach them.
  • I will allow myself time to give up control, let things go, act silly and giggle uncontrollably.
  • I will take good care of myself physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually.
  • I will remember to enjoy the ride.
