Parenting with Compassion for You and Your Children

It helps them teach their children how to be compassionate with themselves as they learn new things, obey boundaries, learn to be responsible, and manage their emotions, money, and chores.

(Previously published as Give Yourself a Break: Turning Your Inner Critic into a Compassionate Friend)

Are You Too Hard on Yourself?

Do you have trouble showing yourself the same grace and understanding you offer to others? If you’re like most people, sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. Most of us are used to showing compassion to others, but often have trouble showing that same compassion to ourselves. We often say things to ourselves we would never say to a friend.  This lack of compassion and negative self-talk can have a devastating effect on our lives. There is another way…The Power of Positive Self-Talk will show you how!

Kim offers practical steps, specific exercises, and compassionate words to say to yourself, to help you build a loving relationship with yourself. Through inspiring stories of transformation, she helps us learn to show ourselves the kind of grace and understanding we offer to others.
