Be Patient with Children, They Are New
Summary: In this short audio excerpt from a conference call on parenting, Sat discusses how to have patience with your children.
Question. How can we be patient when we have reactions that pop up in response to our kids? And how can we drop/minimize our expectations, as I always feel expectations come with attachment?
Sat: The first thing we have to understand is practicing ourselves and also realizing we’ve been in this world at least 30 years and our children have not. The children have been here 4 years, 5 years, 10 years. They are newer than our pair of shoes. This is a comparison to make you alert. That they cannot know everything and they cannot obey everything that you’ve learned in that 30, 40, 50 years. That’s the first understanding we give to them, and that creates a kind of patience. Also like I said in the last meeting I came in, please understand that your understanding of life with millions of experiences and ups and downs is not their experience at all. So how can we lose patience towards someone who is just new? Just new. And I think that way of thinking will help you.
