Maybe the reason some of our children are attracting bully situations to themselves is because of the lack of love and self-acceptance they feel within. As parents and care takers of young souls it is imperative that we give them a clear picture of acceptance and self-worth, that is not based on them living up to our expectations.
These young souls are not here to please us, they are on a mission from God and part of their course is to teach us as adults how to love and be loved. Subsequently, to protect our own children from bullies, we need to first stop bullying them ourselves. Here are a few suggestions to assist us in eradicating these bully issues:
1. Treat your children the way you would like to be treated.
2. Notice if you have a habitual way of being angry or resentful with your child. Clean that up within yourself.
4. Listen carefully and from the second level when your young person speaks to you. What is the intention behind their words? What are they not saying? How can you assist them?
5. Release yourself from any co-dependency you may have with your children. This is especially true and challenging for single mothers. Create your village for support.
6. It isn’t necessary for your children to live up to your expectations for their life, however it is quite helpful if we can assist them in finding their true life purpose and why they came through “you” in the first place.
8. Assist your child in finding inner security from the time that you spend together, instead of from the things you give to them. Meditation is a good practice to share space, even if it’s only for 10 minutes once a week.
9. 10 years from now it really isn’t going to matter what grades your child has earned in school, unless of course you aren’t sharing time and love with them now.
10. Release your fears and allow your child to live and explore life on their terms. Send them forward in divine light and protection.
