Do You Expect Only the Best From Your Child?

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

"Think positive!" you will tell to someone you see that is worry or complaining. But some people doesn't believe is useful and effective. Actually who doesn't accept it will consider it as nonsense or will not pay attention to what you are suggesting nor will ask themselves what the power of positive thinking really means.

Using this with our kids, do we always think positively about them? Or are we always mentioning and repeating what they're not capable off? Like "my kids are too lazy", "my kids never behave good", well if that's what you are expecting from them they will be lazy and they will behave bad, just to confirm your expectations. But what if we expect the best behavior and performance from our children? Isn't this what we often get? It's the power of positive thinking in action. If you expect and believe the best you'll receive the best!

I know parents that will constantly say their kids always get sick and that they catch every cold, well of course they will always be sick, you are affirming it to yourself and you know for sure it will happen. In my case, my kids never get sick and I've been saying that since the day they were born, I can count with the fingers of one hand the times they have had to go to the Dr. and that's in a course of over 12 years.

Yes, I have sometimes been the victim of negative thoughts, too, not expecting the best from them and that's how the cycle towards failure has started to confirm my expectations. But if on the other hand we expect, think, believe and speak about how successful, productive, creative and responsible our kids are, then they can't help but rise to the occasion and confirm our best opinions of them with their positive actions. Remember children also pick up on our beliefs about them, form a self-concept that matches that belief, and perform accordingly.

So instead, we should fill ourselves and our kids with thoughts of self-importance, confidence and positive attitude so that there will be no room for negative thinking. Think all the time about how good they are and when negative thoughts come to mind, just switch them, thinking about all the times your child has made you happy and proud.

Show them how important positive habits are and teach them to live the same way you do, living life to its fullest in a positive way. So no matter what, expect only the best from your children and watch them fulfill your expectations.

The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results. ~ Norman Vincent Peale
