Honeymoon is over

Nicholeen Peck told me there’s a honeymoon stage when you’re teaching your children (and yourself) self-governing. All of my previous posts about my Parenting Transformation Journey would fit into the honeymoon stage, I guess.

Lamenting sigh.

Then I had a business obligation that I had to see through, and it threw me off my schedule. Getting back on track after the event took me a few days. On the Monday after, I was close to being all caught up, but still had a number of things that had to be wrapped up on the computer, and the constant interruptions through the day were really wearing on me.

Eventually the interruptions stopped, and I finally got to where I could focus.

Whew!

At the end of the day I finally left my room to see what everyone was doing, and to make sure they had all eaten, and then to get them to bed. That’s when I noticed this sign posted outside of my door:

Yep. There’s the evidence. Honeymoon’s over.

That’s why I haven’t been posting or tracking for a long time… there’s been a lot of work that needed to be done to get back on track, and I just didn’t feel like I could work it AND write about it all at the same time.

But I had a wonderful opportunity to sit in on another class with Nicholeen Peck last Saturday, and I was reminded about the Power of Calm. Already, I’ve been able to divert potential conflict twice in the last 24 hours, just by practicing this one piece:

“It seems to me that you have something you want to tell me, and I really want to know what that is. But I need you to be calm first, so that we can talk about it…”

Baby steps to self-governing, baby steps to self-governing.
