Witness One of the Most Powerful Conversations in Your Life
Description
I think I just watched and listened to one of the most powerful conversations in my life...
This man right here. His ability to connect, and to speak from the heart ❤️ Open & honestly...
I fell in love with him before we had our girls, but moments like this make me fall even more in love with him...
We connect on this level; and my heart explodes when he connects to his girls like this...
No yelling. No screaming.
Talking. Discussing emotions and why we have such feelings. HEALTHY outlets (walking, running, punching a pillow, etc)...
Getting down to the root of the problem. Setting boundaries, because feelings were upset. RESPECTING boundaries, to ensure it doesn't occur again...
Parenting which neither of us had growing up. Listening ears as little ones speak. Knowing you are still loved no matter what. Knowing you are enough, always...
Our goals as parents are to ensure they do not endure what we did as children...
I am so blessed, and so thankful to have this man as my other half. Our girls are blessed to have him as their father. Thank you Randy Gaines for being you

Deceena, thank you for sharing how you and your husband parent with our world!  As a parent and former elementary and preschool teacher, I am grateful for people like you who set the standard for what loving guidance and boundaries looks like.  Parents can teach their children how to manage their emotions and meet their needs with kindness.  Your girls will not be among the entitled, self-centered children whose needs went unmet because they had to learn to soothe themselves.  I applaud you both also for showing your daughters this type of honor to one another in your relationship!  Sending you love and light from New Hampshire!  ~Trish
