Advice From the World's Strictest Parent
"Hi Nicholeen, I hope you don't mind me messaging you/adding you as a friend....I saw you recently on tv here in England, and as a mother of two I was so impressed and humbled by your patience and love. Nothing seemed to get you down. The love and respect your family have for each other was so apparent, and it did bring tears to my eyes. I would love to have that same patience, tolerance and sheer joy in my life that you do. I'd love to hear back from you, if you have the time, and if possible try and send me some of your calm and patience through the web!!"
Thank you so much for your kind words. What age are your children? It is so good that you are trying to be the best mother you can be. There really is nothing more important for our world right now than parents raising good children who will fight for goodness in this confusing world. This is what I am doing at my house.
On this website I have many many blog posts about parenting. You may find some things there which could be helpful to you.
I am happy to be your friend and to help you with your parenting in any way I can. One thing you may want to look at is getting my book. It is almost finished being printed and I am taking pre-print orders for a discounted price. This is also on my site. Until you get the book, feel free to ask anything you want. I will answer whenever I am able.
One thing I will tell you is one of the secrets to having a loving family and parenting style is the feeling which is in your home. Our family focuses on having the spirit of love and light all the time. If we ever don't feel that feeling then we stop doing what we are doing and we pray to get it back.
The dedication to this feeling is what told me James needed a hug when he was so upset at the door of my home. I knew he felt anxiety and not love right then. He needed to feel my love for him. He needed to feel the light from my soul in order to change his soul.
If I ever feel stressed, angry or frustrated, I stop and go to a private place and pray until I feel the Spirit again. With the Spirit as a companion, parents have a strength which can fight all the bad feelings which try to destroy families.
I hope this is useful to you.
