Positive parenting role modeling is creating “mindfulness-awareness.” Mindfulness is the act of a parent being aware of their triggers and issues and identifying if they are responding to the child’s behaviors or out of their insecurities and fears. Mindfulness self-awareness implies to be aware, conscious, with an ability to examine one's behavioral reactions and responses. Our childhood experiences shape our conditioned responses and impact our personalities and who we are today. The role of parenting is stressful.
