Offer of Influence
To influence your kids is to make an offer and to have that offer accepted. There is a choice on both sides of the equation.
What you offer:
A front row seat to watch your life as the example of your messages.
How they accept:
Sharing their life and dreams with an invitation for feedback.
To allow your kids to actually see into your life—you know, behind the curtain of perfection and under the veil of certainty.
Your kids’ choice:
To trust that you will actually see them in all their perfect imperfections before you voice your feedback.
Your messages that influence aren’t heard with ears;
they are heard with eyes and ears.
Have you chosen to offer your influence?
