Cultivate empathy, so we are able to see things from our child’s point of view,

and we try to understand what he or she may be feeling or experiencing.

Being a mindful parent,

we attempt to bring a sympathetic awareness to what is happening each moment,

and this includes an awareness of our own feelings as well.

It can guide us in the responses we make,

and help us stay connected to our child.
