She told me : “Well, to my pregnant clients who feel a bit anxious, I always say : Do not read any book about parenting or education.”
She just had finished her sentence, I took a deep breath trying to hide my trembling body. Can you imagine the expression on my face? Do you see how I felt about her words? I immediately saw the picture of closing book shops in front of my eyes, training rooms being empty. I had to think about all the learning material and advice that was so precious and rich to our world, to me too. Just think about people like Thomas Gordon, Dorothy Ellen. Their contribution makes the world so much richer and helped so many people to become a better parent. I could easily put myself in the shoes of those people, being writer and trainer myself. Hearing those words was of course a bit delicate. I mean it’s not only my job but my passion to teach people tools that help them to improve their parenting skills, but well it was not only the question about being a writer or trainer here. I felt worried about her advice. I wanted to know more.
“What do you mean?”
“I think my female clients should follow their intuition when raising their children.”
“Hum, I see.” She got me twice. It was apparently my DAY. I have been training people for more than 5 years in How to develop their intuition in the private as well in the professional context, holding workshops several times per year on the topic. Moreover as an empath, I had a rather strongly developed intuition. Intuition was a well-known friend. I tried to see the link she wanted to make.
“So if I understand you correctly, the advice you give to your clients is to naturally do what feels right to them”?
Wow, followed by a huge question mark. This was the word that pictured in my head, I actually did not say it. Continuer la lecture de Why you should think twice before following your intuition when raising your child
