5 Parenting Errors that can Sabotage your Children’s Success

By Duane Krip

The occurring hit me light a bolt of lightning….leaving me weakened in the knees. I was reviewing some notes from numerous sessions I had facilitated. After flipping through page after page, seeing time and again how interactions with parents were now crippling these adult children, I thought of my own kids and my interactions with them.
We want only the best for our children and would never knowingly do anything to hurt them. Yet I saw instances where my own interactions with them were eerily similar to devastating consequences I was seeing in adults I am now working with.

Bruce H. Lipton, in his book The Biology of Belief, quite rightly points out that using positive thinking alone may not be enough to change your life. Lipton points to the subconscious mind as the “locus of sabotaging memory tapes” that interfere with the newer behaviors being chosen or desired. Continue reading
