“What Was Your Father Like” Part II
Over the years I’ve observed a lot of parents try to fill voids in their childhood by recreating with their children what they wish their parent’s had created with themselves.
A lot of times parents attempt to help their children by giving them lots of material things, because they felt they missed out, by not having it themselves. This can create a reverse effect of what parents are actually hoping to achieve.
For instance, My father didn’t buy me the sneakers I wanted growing up. Therefore I will buy my children all the latest sneakers to hit market.
There are many ways to evaluate and reflect on this circumstance that leads to a healthy impact on your parenting skills.
Everyone has a different experience with their father. Here is a few things we can reflect on:
- A. What your father did or didn’t do.
- B. How your father made you feel.
- C. How can you recreate that experience in your parenting relationships with your children?
- D. How you can reverse a negative effect, so your children have a positive and healthy relationship with you.
