We see parenting as a sacred responsibility. Parents are nothing less than protectors, nourishers, comforters, teachers, guides, companions, models, and sources of unconditional love and acceptance. If we are able to keep this sense of parenting as a sacred responsibility in mind, and we bring a degree of mindfulness to the process as it unfolds moment to moment, our choices as parents are much more likely to come out of an awareness of what this moment, this child – at this stage of his or her life – is asking from us right now, through this very being and his behavior. In rising to this challenge we may not only come to do what is best for our children we may also uncover and come to know, perhaps for the first time, what is deepest and best in ourselves.
