Rituals define us and remind us who we are. Participation in rituals uncovers soul and substance and engages us in the mysteries and intricacies of life. When we think of rituals, we usually think about the holidays, but family rites that focus on the importance of sharing and togetherness can be incorporated into our daily lives. The key to creating family traditions is to do so with a sense of fun and creativity. Design activities that celebrate togetherness and help forge your family's unique identity within the context of its history.
Parenting is a process of evolution. None of us start out with the knowledge of what it takes to be a perfect parent. We all come with baggage, which is stuffed with the experiences of our childhood: some good, some bad, and some of which has been "forgotten" or repressed. Struggling with our children on a daily basis brings forth many of these issues. Whether we reenact some old drama or use awareness and compassion to create something new has to do with our level of consciousness and our willingness to take responsibility for our behavior.
