Good Enough Parenting

Good Enough Parenting

Parenting starts before the child is born. 

Every child born into this world has its own innate genetic blueprint shaped by life experiences that start impacting the mind and body from an embryonic stage. 

The child’s personality develops in response to experiences in different living environments: some of these may provide a safe and nurturing world; others an innately unsafe and chaotic environmental space.

Based on informed research,  the environment a child is exposed to; will shape the child’s blueprint, leading to a variety of different outcomes in his or her development.These lived experiences will ultimately shape the formation of his or her personality. 

The challenge for parents is to be good enough parents to create a safe and nurturing environment for their children. To promote children’s holistic needs: physical, psychological, emotional, intellectual, moral, spiritual and social.

This is very challenging for parents in midst of stressful life challenges.Every parent 

strives to give their children the best opportunities they can; within their living circumstances.

This often requires the parents to put their children first and foremost in every decision. This is no easy task. As no child comes with a ‘manual’ of how to take care for themselves. Forgetting about their self care can lead to getting into stressful situations that further complicate the situation.
