Mastering The Perspective Shift


How do you describe the problems you are facing?

I've noticed that the more I explain my "problems" without judging myself or others - the more open I am to new and creative solutions.

Solutions I may NEVER have noticed had I not changed my point of view. 

Mastering the perspective-shift is a crucial part of conscious, non-punitive, non-permissive parenting.

If you continue to talk about behavior in the same way, you aren't going to be able to shift to a new direction.

You know that saying, "If you always think what you've always thought, you'll always do what you've always done. If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got... if you always get what you always got you'll always think what you always thought..."

Circular in its logic, but it emphasizes my point that you have to start thinking outside the traditional, top-down parenting box if you want to create, real, lasting change.

If you want to get to a place where you see more cooperation than defiance, you have to be able to speak about what is happening without using blame, shame judgment or guilt.

That takes LOTS of practice. This episode of TEACHable Moments is a look back at how we can start transforming our perspective by removing judgment!

Are you in the habit of being judgmental, evaluative or blaming?  

What is ONE action step you can take to break the habit? I'd love it if you shared your idea in the comments!

Thank you for reading and please remember, it's about being conscious - not perfect!
