Do you know that children are already born complete, total with pure innocence and intelligence?
Before the age of 7 y.o., children live in a pure space called “Space of a Child”. This is the original state of pure awareness, a space of solutions where there is no mental processing like planning, judging or thinking. They just download like an internet connection whenever they need the information. This is such a beautiful space to be in as it is a space of huge possibilities. All they need from parents is the right environment and guidance from a higher energy to start expressing their extraordinary dimensions that the society holds them back from.

For the last 7 months, I have been attending the monthly Enlightened Parenting workshop conducted by Ma Rishi Advait, Head of Enlightened Education of Nithyananda Gurukul, Bangalore in India. This workshop came from the immense compassion of a living incarnation, Paramahamsa Nithyananda to help parents understand the “Space of a Child” so that they can bridge the communication gap with their children. The essence of Enlightened Parenting is to create an awareness among conscious parents to hold a space of possibilities for their child’s flowering without the interference of their conditioning and patterns. The Enlightened Parenting workshop forms a part of his grand vision in creating an enlightened civilisation by infusing the right knowledge and practical tips to modern parents. He said that “My hope lies only on the next generation. The next generation should become the new generation.” Every month Ma Rishi Advait shares some of the most mind-blowing Vedic wisdom that not only solves many of the modern-day parenting struggles we face but most importantly it teaches parents to get into the space of a child.

The topic was about “Teens and Tantrums in Children”. The biggest click I got out of the session about teenagers was – the Power of Listening.
