    Imprinting Your Ducklings

    Defiance, anger, yelling, destruction of property, cutting, bullying, being the victim of bullying, risky behaviors – what happened to that sweet, happy little baby that you brought into the world?

    Are you one of the millions of parents who feel like you’re failing at parenting? Have you tried all the chore charts, the disciplinary strategies, meditation and mindfulness, dietary adjustments, educational changes … to no avail?

    It can feel incredibly hopeless to love a child and see them pull away and make harmful decisions. On top of that, the guilt of your own feelings when you’re struggling to enjoy your kiddo’s company can be overwhelming. You just feel like a bad parent.

    Let’s take a step back from all the parenting strategies and advice, all the methods and tactics, and instead look at this from a different angle. Here’s a radical suggestion to consider: It doesn’t matter what you do as a parent – it matters who you are to your child.

    We’re going to dig into this idea in the course of this Blink. But first, let’s talk about attachment and orientation.

    Maybe you’ve heard of attachment theory. If you’re aware that a duckling will imprint on the first moving object it sees in the absence of its mother, then you understand attachment.

    Our babies are very similar. They attach in several different ways throughout their early life.

    The first way they attach is physically. Most of us don’t struggle to hold and kiss and snuggle our adorable babies. It’s even fun at times. But it’s also crucial to their development and serves a survival purpose – babies can’t exactly fend for themselves.

    The second way children attach happens in toddlerhood, when the child begins to imitate you. They recognize that you are their guide in life, so they model their actions and behaviors after you.

    The third form of attachment is through a sense of belonging. Your child identifies you as their person, and they want to feel they belong to you. This can also lead to obedience and loyalty.

    The fourth attachment is to feel that they’re important. A child needs to know that they matter in your life.

    The fifth form of attachment is closest to what we define as love. It’s the warm, comforting feeling we get when we’re hugged or soothed by someone we’re attached to. 

    The sixth and final form of attachment is the desire to be truly seen and known. A child who is attached to you will share their fears, curiosities, insecurities, secret longings, and other important parts of themselves. They want to be understood by you.

    Now that we’ve talked about types of attachment, let’s define orientation. This is the crux of everything else we’re going to discuss in the next sections.

    Orientation has to do with knowing where you are, who you are, and how to get where you want to go. For a child who is still forming their identity and activating the maturation process, their parent should be the compass that helps them navigate the world.

    The reason that compass has to be a parent (or an attached adult) is because children are still forming important inner structures like identity, the ability to choose responsibility over impulse, and an understanding and acceptance of the world they live in.

    Unfortunately, due to many factors including societal changes, technological shifts, and a misunderstanding of what it means to be a parent, many children are making their primary attachments with peers. This means that their compass is their peer group. 

    And that’s a problem.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
