Adult vs Child Frame of Reference

I think that Dr Shefali’s wisdom in her new book The Awakened Family is so profound that I want I share every word with anyone who will listen, so this is the first meme I made and certainly not the last.

What struck me about this quote is that it reminds me of the ‘adult vs child frame of reference’ I often use when explaining why our children don’t calmly go along with our plans.

We as adults have our own frame of reference when we do or say things we perceive to be in the child’s best interest. However if we pause and remain present in the moment with our child, though this connection we will see it for the micromanaging and manipulation that it is, which is how our children receive this input.
