THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle

:: Kids Hear Your Vibe, Not Your Words ::

The younger your child, the more his or her
interpretation of your words is based on the emotional
energy they carry — your “vibe” — not the words
themselves.

So if your child doesn’t listen to your reasonable
requests, try this: Listen to yourself as if you
didn’t know the language and couldn’t understand the
words; all you have to go by is the tone, the body
language, the vibe.

Is it joyful, or heavy? Do you sound eager, or
burdened? Does it feel confident, or ambivalent?
Is your life a groove, or a grind?

If your vibe is heavy, your joy-oriented child will
naturally (and wisely!) tune you out.

Try being silent until you feel centered, connected,
and in the Flow. When you speak from that place,
you’ll emanate an attractive vibe and your child
will *want* to align with you.
