Are you sure your child wants to do what they are doing or are they doing it to soothe your insecurities about being rejected by society? If they are doing it to appease you, do not let them. If you allow this, children will learn to sacrifice peace within for approval of others.
And before you know it, your child is doing things they would never do in a million years only to be accepted by a group.
Spiritual warfare is teaching your child to give up their voice, innocence, MIND BODY AND SOUL. What are you doing to protect them as much as you can to prevent this from happening? What are you doing for yourself to be a better guardian to prevent this from this happening?
We may not be able to do everything. Because parents are suffering and under attack, too. But we can always do at least one thing. And then build on that. And then more and more each day. Doesn’t matter where you are at. What matters is that you start NOW.
Children who are not allowed to express anger or frustrations when someone crosses boundaries will slowly lose their sense of self and voice, and their understanding of the unique needs and boundaries which by nature, are designed to protect them when caretakers are not around.
This is why the shaming of anger is one of the weapons used in spiritual warfare to silence children and slowly degrade them of their natural free spirited innocence.
Parents, you cannot be around your children all of the time. So, what are you teaching your children at home. What are you modeling for your children at home that will help them protect themselves as much as they can when you are not around?
If someone tries to hurt your child and you are not there to protect them, don’t you want them to know how to protect themselves? Don’t you want them to know how to stand up for themselves? This world is doing everything possible to prevent them from doing so.
Be the best model you can possibly be for your children by simply being honest. And this doesn’t mean telling them everything. Because of course, like any healthy relationship, there are boundaries. Spaces in between. But those boundaries never withhold truth or perpetuate lies.
Do you know how to play with your child in a way that keeps their inner child alive and thriving? Do you let your inner child come out to play with them? Or do you hold back?
Children need to be taught how to express their emotions in a way that helps them navigate the world that will inevitably not be accepting of their authentic free flowing expression of self.
For example. Your child needs to learn it is ok to cry and necessary and not to “suck it up” or hold it back but also not to cry in front of strangers or those they do not trust or feel comfortable around. Teach them find a space in solitude where they can release.
Those who play roles have forgotten their inner child. Those who suppress their emotions to play those roles have forgotten their inner child. Because children don’t play any roles. Children just are who they are. Free. Which is why they are under attack. So they will forget.
Anger wouldn’t feel so bad to you if your inner child hadn’t been shamed by someone who was ashamed of their own anger. Make peace with this emotion so that you don’t feel the programmed guilt designed to suppress it when it arises.
If you think your child is not watching your every little move, YOU WOULD BE WRONG. Children pick up on everything. And yes, they will model after you. If they see you playing a role, they will play a role. If they see you being authentic, they will be authentically THEMSELVES.
If you have a child but have not yet remembered your inner child, then yes your child is going to be the one reminding you. DO NOT SHAME THEM FOR YOU NOT REMEMBERING. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE WARFARE TARGETING THEIR INNOCENCE.
If you as a parent know how to self soothe, then your child will learn how to self soothe.
Children are learning to play roles at a much earlier age because of social media and because they model after their parents who perform on social media because parents have not learned how to truly be themselves because of social norms designed by evil to suppress AUTHENTICITY.
When you suppress or shame emotions like anger, you are silencing and shaming your inner child. You are also teaching them that it is wrong for them to have boundaries and to protect themselves.
Don’t lie to your children. This doesn’t mean you tell them everything. BUT don’t lie to them. If they ask you a question you are not comfortable answering because you are not sure how, tell them you are not comfortable and that you will think about it. But do not lie to them.
Lying to your children is normalized and it starts with the insanity of Santa Claus but lying to your children is part of the indoctrination.
