Power of Perception from the Becoming the Best You Can Be Series (1 of 7)
Our perception of others and situations dictates how we respond. Holding the perception children who talk back are disrespectful will trigger one response, while seeing the child in the moment as needing help with social skills will elicit another response. How do we get these perceptions and is it possible to change them?
Healthy relationships require we own our own upset. Becoming consciously aware of our triggers allows us to practice composure and change our perceptions. In discipline situations our perception determines whether we punish and blame the child or teach new skills. When we are triggered into an emotional state, we can actively calm yourself, choose a new perception and respond in a helpful way rather than react from old unhealthy pre-programmed messages.
