40: Parenting Myth #4: Good Parents are Naturals -- Conscious Parenting Coaches Dinuka Ranasinghe, Inez Natalia, and Juliana Gomes
Today we are talking about parenting myth #4: Good parents are naturals. And I have to tell you, it only took days into being a parent (maybe just hours!) for me to realize that it didn't come as naturally as I thought it would!
This show is the fifth in our 8-part series on Conscious Parenting the parenting myths Dr. Shefali Tsabary so beautifully shared in her book, The Awakened Family.
To bring this myth to life, we are joined by three inspiring Conscious Parenting Coaches who generously share their wisdom: Dinuka Ranasinghe, Inez Natalia, and Juliana Gomes. In the episode, we talk about:
- The downsides of viewing parenting as "natural"...and the freedom that understanding this myth unlocks
- The story of a pre-parenting coach and how conscious parenting is preparing her for her potential future as a parent.
- How letting go of "good" (and "bad") can open up joy and connection with ourselves, our kids, and the present moment.
