It’s really hard to be a conscious parent. It calls on us to be more patient and compassionate than ever before. It requires us to be organized, thoughtful and discerning. It can consume us with anxiety and regret, while also filling our lives with joy and gratitude. But being a parent can be a gateway to our most significant growth points and it gives us the opportunity to expand who we are capable of being.
