This blog should definitely get you thinking! We have all heard the saying that perception equals reality. So it would be a good idea for us to do a reality check, by checking our perceptions, as often as possible. Here’s an opportunity for you to check the way you perceive your child. After doing the four quick and easy steps below, you will probably see your child in a whole new light which will impact everything you do and say and plan for your child. So here goes. Be prepared to have your mind turned upside-down.
Step 1. Take a Position.

Step 2. Challenge your Child’s Label

Step 3. Adopt a New View
Take a sheet of paper and a pen. Watch the second video again and write each of the captions on each of the T-Shirts on your sheet of paper. Decide which one best describes your child. In other words, if you drop the label the doctor has given your child, which of these healthy descriptions would describe your child’s nature and behavior. If none of the descriptions on the video work for you then follow the idea and identify one of your own. Once you have the answer, begin to see your child, and relate to your child in this whole new way. You will be truly amazed by the difference this healthy description will make in healing your child’s challenges.
Step 4. Own It with Passion!
Write a comment and let me know which description fits your child best and how this makes you feel. It is important to write it and share it because this will be the first step of owning it and making it happen!
Good Luck! I am looking forward to hearing from you!
