Minimalism can seem like a ridiculous dream when you’re up to your eyes in kiddy paraphernalia. But Editing Your Life doesn’t mean having a spartan home or a frugal lifestyle.
Make peace with the mirror and watch the reflection change
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? A confident, strong and empowered woman, or a tired and frazzled wreck?
In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll learn that, how you view yourself as a women and as a mother, is a strong reflection to your children upon which they base their own behaviours.
My guest today is SuperMum, Christine Watts.
Christine and her husband live in rural Victoria, Australia, and have three daughters in their twenties. She’s an experienced teacher who has taught all age groups, and was a founding member of a Steiner school.
Christine now works with children, parents and teachers to help children build confidence, have high self esteem, create physical awareness and develop emotional intelligence.
Christine believes that it’s not the words you say to your children that really matters, but who you reveal yourself to be. How you choose to behave, to act, and to express yourself as a mother, has a direct impact on your children because they follow the lead of your example.
Christine encourages you to use innovation, creativity and imagination as the basis for raising happy, healthy and confident children. By doing so, this empowers our little ones to be the greatest version of themselves and enables them to create a brilliant world for themselves.
Which means, of course, a brilliant world for you too.
I am excited to welcome Christine to my show today because she’ll introduce you to using your own values and core beliefs to model the behaviours you want your children to mirror.
