Many people have gotten more involved in social activism and community work, recently. Seeing the divides in political positions, opportunities, and lived experiences, many of us have declared that we cannot, in good conscience, passively wait for others to make the world a better place.

While this work can be rewarding, it can also be hard. Sometimes it’s anxiety-provoking, and sometimes you might feel discouraged about the progress you are (or aren’t) seeing, or about the state of the world in general.

Positive reinforcement: Encourage and praise good behavior, focusing on the positives instead of constantly highlighting the negatives.Setting clear expectations: Establish clear, age-appropriate expectations and boundaries for behavior, ensuring that your child understands the rules and the reasons behind them.Natural consequences: Whenever possible, allow children to experience the natural consequences of their actions, helping them to learn from their mistakes and understand the importance of making responsible choices.Logical consequences: When natural consequences are not applicable or safe, implement logical consequences that are directly related to the misbehavior and teach the child how to make better choices in the future.Open communication: Foster open and honest communication by actively listening to your child’s feelings and concerns, validating their emotions, and working together to resolve conflicts or challenges.Modeling appropriate behavior: Demonstrate appropriate behavior and emotional regulation by managing your own emotions and reactions in difficult situations, providing your child with a positive example to follow.Parent-child collaboration: Involve your child in problem-solving and decision-making processes, allowing them to take ownership of their actions and develop a sense of autonomy.While discipline is necessary for teaching children about boundaries and acceptable behavior, relying on threats of consequences can have negative long-term effects on their emotional and psychological well-being.

How to Unleash Your Full Potential and Live Your Extraordinary Life
One of our most significant desires is to connect with and unleash our full potential.We crave to stand in our power. We harbor this desire because it’s innate to us; it’s who we are at our center.We long and desire to embody and live from this place, yet we’ve been conditioned to do the opposite. To shrink, to hide, to not stand out from the crowd.The first word most babies hear is “Shh.”As we grow, we understand fitting in is easier than standing out. If we step outside the norm of our group, we risk being ridiculed and judged. It’s better to follow the slice of lemmings than step outside the flow and forge our own path. Our families, friends, and society erode our potential with the slow drip of phrases like,“Don’t be cocky.”“You can’t do that.”“No one likes a show-off.”“Who do you think you are?”“Remember where you came from.”And many more.Each of these unto themselves is merely a drip; collectively, they create a river, carving beliefs around how we believe we must show up to be safe. Because that’s all fitting in and hiding are, a bastion of safety in the “unsafe” world outside of our beliefs. At around the midpoint of our lives, we often find ourselves lost, frustrated, disillusioned, and longing for more, even if we’ve reached the pinnacle of professional and materialistic success. We begin to grasp how far we’ve traveled from our true selves and our full potential. We feel it growing inside, but we have no idea how to let it out. It lives, breathes, and rattles the cage of the self-imposed cell we’ve imprisoned it in. “The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming.
