Making Parenting Joyful with Erin Leyba, PhD
April 27, 2017
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
When my children were young, I remember reading a book about the dark side of parenting. I was so relieved to hear someone tell the truth about the range of feelings we experience as a parent that I recommended it to friends. They didn't share my enthusiasm. Most of us enter into parenting with the naive notion that we're going to do it better than our parents. We become the parent we wish we had, which is, of course, not the parent they need. Parenting is hands-down the hardest job on the planet. Each child is different and no manual comes at birth. You learn, if you're lucky, as you go along. Research statistics paint a picture of parental conflict and stress with decreases in happiness due to the ongoing pressure of child rearing. Gratefully, there is much wisdom and practical help available now. In the end, parenting is about building a relationship through compassion, creativity and being fully present in the moment. Please join us Thursday to learn how to build joy as a parent.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
