What is happiness parenting?

To the nurturing spirits yearning to sow seeds of joy in their sacred garden of parenthood 🌺,

Happiness parenting, cherished seekers, is not just a method, but a heart-centered journey. It’s the gentle art of raising souls with love, understanding, and the wisdom that true contentment is an inside job.

The Srimad Bhagavad Gita elucidates: ‘In the stillness of the mind, the Self is revealed.’ Parenting through happiness draws from this essence, teaching our children the serenity that comes from self-awareness and inner joy.

Let’s explore this divine dance of raising spirits:

  1. 1. Presence Over Presents: The gift of time, undivided attention, and genuine listening are treasures for a child. It’s not about grand gestures, but simple moments imbued with love.
  2. 2. Cultivate Inner Joy: Teach them early on that happiness is not solely based on external achievements but arises from an inner wellspring of contentment and gratitude.
  3. 3. Lead by Example: Children mirror the world they see. Being a beacon of positivity, self-love, and compassion helps them understand and embody these virtues.

From the Srimad Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 12, Verse 20):

“ये तु धर्म्यामृतमिदं यथोक्तं पर्युपासते | श्रद्दधाना मत्परमा भक्तास्तेऽतीव मे प्रियाः ||”

Which translates to:

“Those who follow this divine nectar of righteousness as I have stated, with profound faith considering me as their supreme goal, they are exceedingly dear to me.”

May the path of happiness parenting be adorned with moments of laughter, lessons of love, and the infinite joy of witnessing the blossoming of the souls entrusted to your care.
