#LeadandLift | Episode 39 | Toni Belin Ingram

Have we taught our children how to mediate conflicts and disputes?

How to disagree but not be disagreeable?

Parents need to PAUSE and be STILL with one another.  It’s not about you, the parents, but about the children.  Look at this as an opportunity to help them flourish in the way they were created.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • A gift and an opportunity
  • Children are all unique
  • Creating an open dialogue
  • Allowing your children to flourish

I truly enjoyed this conversation with Toni and it made me reflect on what I am doing today with my children and what new things I can add to grow that relationship with each of them.  Since they are both different and I need to "parent them differently".

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • Each child is both a gift and an opportunity. They are a gift from God and they are an opportunity for us to be our very best selves.
  • A child is a person and like any person, they are utterly unique. Therefore, there is no one-size-fits-all kind of solution or method to parenting. It’s important to take time to understand your kid, to be present in their lives, practice unconditional love and forgiveness.
  • One of the best things you can do for your family is to ensure that each member in your family has the ability to talk out what they think and how they feel or how someone has hurt them. This will allow each one to forgive, love, and move on.
  • How we treat our children either add to their ability to thrive or flourish or they add to their inability to see themselves better. How do you wake them up? What do you say to them? What do you allow them to say to themselves? Be your children’s first encourager.

"The important thing for family is to recognize that there is no perfect model about who family is or what family looks like but the best thing that we can do is to love them, encourage them, be fully present with them." —  Toni Belin Ingram
