How Do I Get My Kids to Be Kind to One Another?

Have you ever felt like your kids have no respect for each other or maybe that they could use an infusion of kindness into their language and interactions?

Sometimes, it's easy to look at those conflicts, determine what's wrong, judge it and then, declare for our children what's fair and what should be done.

But have you ever looked for the source of conflict, not on the outside, but on the inside?

I have been looking forward to this week's topic because recently I was prompted to take a look at just how kind I am being to myself.

I needed to take inventory of... the hours that I work, the time that I take to serve my needs, and how often I connect with my family. And then I needed to ask myself, is any of this contributing to the conflicts I am experiencing in my closest relationships?

It is easy to lecture our kids on the rewards of being considerate and tolerant or make a case for the benefits of being self-empowered. 

We can give our kids lots of sound arguments for being kind to others, but there is one place that we rarely look for the most needed solutions.

It's on the inside.

In this TEACHable Moment, I share what I consider to be the #1 key ingredient to resolving conflict peacefully.


You can't manage conflict if you can't manage yourself.  So, tell me, how do you practice self care? What's your "I Love Myself" Ritual?

Have a great week!
