Dealing With Children’s Low Moods
If you have difficulty with your child’s low moods, it can be really helpful to recognize that the difficulty you experience is a reflection of your own state of mind. Seeing this helps you to remember to take care of yourself. It also helps wake you up to what direction you are looking in. Are you looking in the direction of your true nature or are you looking in the direction of your ego’s stories and judgments?
One direction leads you to more suffering through the experience of separation, and one leads you back home to wellbeing. It is also much easier to see your child’s wisdom and resilience when you see them through the eyes of love and compassion. And it is also much easier to know how to respond in a loving way in the moment when you are at peace within yourself. I am not saying you should always be at peace, but when you are not, it is helpful to know what direction to look in. That would be away from your child and back to your Self — who you really are!
