“Being a peaceful parent is letting your love for your child show on your face.”

-Sarah Rosensweet

So often we mentally “check out” when we are around our kids because we’re overloaded or in a rush or have so much on our minds or so much on our to-do lists. 

When I was in this headspace once, trying to make dinner and thinking of a million things I had to do, one of my kids asked me, “Mom? Are you mad at me?” 

I answered that I was not mad and asked why he thought that? He said I had a mad look on my face! I wasn’t mad but I was certainly feeling overloaded.

I realized that he could feel my disconnection and thought it was because of him.

When you are near your child or when you are reunited, make a point to take a second (that’s all it takes!) to connect with your child by smiling. When you see your child first thing in the morning, when they come in the room, when they come to dinner- WHENEVER- look them in the eye and give them a smile. 

You can say, “I’m glad to see you.” Or, “I love you.” Or, “I’m so lucky you’re my kid.” 

Or, say nothing and just smile! Let your love show on your face.

It may be the most important thing that we can do as parents 💗 Our children learn they are loveable and worthy through seeing themselves reflected through our eyes.
