There is no such thing as an ideal parent but there is a possibility to create an ideal growing environment for our children. Love, freedom, rhythm, routine, help our little ones grow into happy and inspired adults. The Alchemy of Love Conscious Parenting Course is full of inspiring daily and weekly exercises and tools that reminded me at all times to come back to love as the guiding principle for parenting. The exercises were fun to do with my kids and during the course we created a very special rapport that was full of fun, creativity and sharing.
I have two kids, one who is 4 and the other 16, and when I am not being a university professor in my professional life, I spend a lot of time as their personal taxi driver taking them from one activity to the other -- so there were areas within my life that I needed to protect with my partner and my friends. These were the areas that I struggled with most throughout the course. Finding the time for deeper contact with my loved ones remained a great challenge, but at least I became aware that I have a problem that needs my attention. When defining my true goals in this area, I kept coming back to this issue -- so I know I need to create space and time within my life for deeper contacts with my partner, friends and family.
The parenting is very demanding, and I agree with Nuit that it is (probably!) the most difficult job in the world, so I am very happy to have come across this course and that I had enough willpower to stick with it for the full 12 weeks. If you're into this kind of thing, I would look for more stuff from this author!
