I am the mother of a very hyper, intelligent, sensitive, and often mischievous five-year-old girl. I love her nature. She’s strong-willed and a powerful self-advocate.
That strong-will, however, gets her in trouble and often. After having a turbulent preschool career, I prayed that she would turn things around and have a magical kindergarten year. Well, that wasn’t what we got. It feels as if she constantly has “bad” days.
Negative reports are taking a toll on her teacher, my husband and I, and her. I can see it wearing down her self-esteem as she is beginning to see herself as a “bad girl.” It breaks my heart as I try to navigate parenthood and discipline her yet not break her spirit. So we’re trying out some spiritual methods to help her center herself, focus, choose the right behaviors, and build her self-esteem.
We meditate often and for short periods. Try this fun guided children’s meditation.
We reflect on our day. Verbally or through drawing or writing. Consider these journals.
