June 1st is celebrated in many countries as International Children’s Day*. When you are a kid, this means… presents (yay!). When you are a parent, this means… giving presents (yay as well of course!). But don’t stop at being best mom, dad, uncle, aunty, grandparent or a kind neighbour. As an adult also make sure your inner child is cherished. And do it always – June 1st, November 20th, and every single day of the year. Just follow a piece of advice by Special Agent Dale Cooper from the Twin Peaks TV show:
[…] Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt in a men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black, coffee.
So, what was (or still will be) your present for yourself today?
For us, the present of June 1st, 2016 is TheCoachingParent.com site brought back with this new post (and some minor layout/ design updates). We really hope that you will continue sharing our stories, sharing your perspective, being the best coach to your children, and supporting parents in their coaching journey. We have many ideas and we truly hope you will enjoy the way this site and our services evolve!
