Math and geography won’t give a child the skills to deal with disappointments, relationships, victim mentality, heartaches, anxieties, successes and failures.
From infancy through teen and adult years, today’s parenting and social trends thwart emotional freedom, creating the most anxious young generation with high expectations and low resilience. We measure success by degrees and income, missing the awe of stillness and the power of being rooted in oneself.
Teaching the art of emotional resilience is first about NOT destroying it. Learn how, unaware of it, we thwart emotional strength in ourselves and in children through praise, expectations, distractions, avoidance of discomfort and pain, and teaching that life must be happy all the time. Learn to generate relationships rather than dependencies and to build life skills with inner strength that enables tenderness without fear.
Emotional freedom from babyhood to adult includes (but is not limited to): how not to be triggered, how to be free of needing approval, how to live without blaming, how to create joy and peace – not victimhood and anger, how to welcome and benefit from failure and hurts, and how to rejoice in change.
- No one is the boss, including parents and teachers
- Babies are born emotionally competent and highly self-esteemed
- Dependency on approval thwarts emotional freedom and happiness
- Being rooted in one’s self is by far more crucial for living than academics
- Embrace discomfort
- Testing, prizes and praising thwart self-esteem and emotional resilience
- Strong emotions are included in living
- Learn/teach relationship and communication skills
- Instead of avoiding triggers, how to not feel triggered
- Avoid blame and defensiveness
- The causes of anxiety
- Why the child does not need to fit in
- The child is right – how not to shape but to enable her unfolding
- Teach healthy eating and lifestyle
- Self-reliance; don’t thwart but nurture it in babies through teens.

Her guidance is not about gentle ways to control a child, but about how to have peace without having to control.

She also guides families about diet and lifestyle that promotes emotional and physical wellbeing and impacts a child’s behavior and development.
