We are all different. We have our physical differences, but beyond that we respond to information and situations differently, we learn differently and we experience the world differently. I like to say ‘my red, cannot be the same color as your red.’ It’s just not possible that how I see the color red will be exactly the same way that you do. That in itself is something to think about!
When it comes to our children and parenting consciously, I find that it is really helpful to have as much information as possible in terms of understanding who they are, why they act the way they do and what to expect in given situations. In addition to understanding your child’s nature, there are many non-conventional ways to gather greater insight into who your child is and to know in what ways certain situations will affect them.
Here are some helpful ways to explore some of these ‘out-of-the-box’ ways of knowing your child. These are all modalities that can offer you a unique perspective, help you better understand what makes your child tick and help you better support your child holistically.
