Our job as parents is to provide discipline to our children, to teach them right from wrong and show them how to regulate themselves. This can sometimes involve emotional interchanges with them that, left unchecked, can get out of hand. As any parent knows, there is conflict built into the relationship with our children. Although it is difficult, we should remain emotionally available to our children at all times. This video speaks to that issue and the importance of mindfulness and self-control in the parent.
