How can I be a better parent?

Question On Parenting

As a single mother, Christine wants to know how to help her daughter become the best person possible.
It's a tough and important question to ask, one in which our grown-up egos can sometimes get in the way.
Also, what we need as adults is sometimes different from what our children need.
So it's definitely a good idea to ask our inner wisdom for guidance on this topic!
Question On Parenting:

"How can I help my daughter to face challenges in her life?"

Christine
Okay.

Shannon Walbran
Can you see that that is immediately within your locus of control? "How can I help my daughter with her emotional intelligence, her resilience, and her ability to face all challenges in her life, which may include having a stepmother in her life?"

Christine
Okay.

Shannon Walbran
We don't know how long that stepmother is going to be around anyway. That's way outside of your range.

Do you know why I want you to spread them across the table? Because then you're allowing -- there you go. Do you see where that break is in the middle? That's right. Show me the card. 

"What do you desire?" Could you please read us the text? And can you tip the camera so we can see your face? Could you please read us the text of "What do you desire?"

Christine
"You now have the opportunity to write the script according to your heart's true desires. Once you clearly decide upon your true desires, and know that you're ready and deserving of them, they will rush into your life as if by magic."

My happiness is her happiness. Happy mom, happy child? I don't know.

Shannon Walbran
That's not how I took it. I took it as you need to ask her herself, "Honey, what do you really want? I will get it for you." 

Your daughter is a reasonable person and she doesn't ask for pie in the sky. She doesn't ask to eat ice cream all day long. 

She doesn't ask to go to the amusement park every day of the week, she actually gets down to business and she takes care of what needs to be done. 

When she wants something, she wants a new red bicycle, you can get her a new red bicycle because she's asking for something that is a good thing for her to ask for. 

To constantly allow her to take up space, to constantly allow her to get what she needs and say, "I believe in you. I vouch for what you desire in your life. What do you desire? I will make that happen."
