Parenting with Courage – 169

LISTEN TO THE SHOW:

Courage isn’t the ability to do something without fear. It’s the ability to do something despite fear.

 

Courageous people feel fear, but they don’t let it stop them from taking action.

 

As moms, we experience a lot of fear that holds us back from doing what we know is effective.

 

When we can accept that fear is just part of our job description and doesn’t necessarily signal danger, we can feel it and still take action.

 

Tune into this episode for more about parenting with courage.

    Sorry just now saw your reply: My biggest takeaways were the description of courage and the description of the fear reaction rather than response. “When I’m afraid as a mom, without managing my mind, as a mom, …. Reacting in one of two ways, I become super controlling…. Or, I completely avoid dealing with the situation…. Makes it worse.. These do Nothing to alleviate my fear.”
    Fear: “Feel it and still take action.”
    Heard: “Being afraid of what others might think”. Needing to let that go & opt for the long run. (paraphrase)

    Then, the list:
    Sometimes saying no even when kids upset.
    Saying yes then letting go of control.
    Admitting when wrong, even if judged
    Doing the unpopular thing
    Trying something new
    Reach out
    Compassion for self and others
    And many others in the list
    Such a good podcast about being afraid and doing it anyways.
