As parents, some of us will spend a lifetime learning about the parent role, whilst others will fail to grasp the parent concept in its entirety.
Being a parent isn’t an easy role, but as we begin to parent we will either parent through instinct, in the way we think, or what we’ve seen our parents do. Some parents will teach their children about confidence, some parents will teach their children about life through their own experiences and some parents will teach their children how to seek out opportunities.
Some parents will also teach their children discipline; some parents will teach their children how to be good communicators, but unfortunately somewhere along the line, some parents will impart their insecurities on their children without realising that’s exactly what they’re doing. Children will then continue to take on those insecurities without consciously knowing they are.
I came through my childhood with confidence and insecurity issues, brought about through my own set of circumstances and have had to unlearn and relearn the whole process again, this time without the issues.
