That inner parent voice sometimes echoes past opinions of my grandmother, teacher, father, and mother. They expressed their loving concern for me, unaware that the child was translating every word they said into the underlying feelings conveyed by their voice tone, posture, whispers, and feelings as well as the child’s filters.READ More on That Inner Parent Voice

Here are some simple questions to ask yourself about your own parenting inner voice:

1. Who does the voice really sound like in your head?

2. If you like the voice, and it seems nurturing, see how you emulate this voice with your own children. What examples can you try today?

3. If you don’t like your inner parenting voice, change it to a person in your head that you like to listen to. Here are some suggestions: wise granny, skillful coach, enthusiastic cheerleader, nurturing , caring friend. Which one works for you?

4. Identify the voice qualities that you like and dislike: quality, tone, speech rate, underlying feeling of the voice. Do you use the same tone, quality, or facial look with your ?

5. After listening to yourself for awhile, write down the three most distinctive phrases that you hear repeated in your head most often.

6. Watch to see if your repeat any of these phrases to your children.

When those behaviors are not cosistant it can lead to confusion and unpredictable behavior from kids.  READ More on Kids And The Importance Of Rituals
