When Physically Present with Your Child     
 
 
 
Mindful parenting verses reunite us emotionally, physically, and spiritually with our child.  Because we rely so heavily on our five senses, and seldom think beyond them, we may forget that our child is always with us.
 
Of course our child is with us when we hug them.  By and large, we would say they are with us when we watch television together or travel together in a car.  But when they slip out of sight -- when we can't see, touch, or hear them -- as when they are in school or visiting a friend, we feel separated.  But this is a false sensation brought about by the limits of our skills of perception.
 
Were our eyesight better, were our fingers able to sense our child from a distant locale, were our ears able to listen to them from afar, we would not necessarily feel separated.  All too often, when they are out of sight, they are out of mind.
 
The use of verses can serve to bridge the gap between our inner connection with our child and the outer walls we construct in life that keep us from feeling fully the wonders of that connection.  The verses presented in this website are broken down into two categories: "When we are physically present wth our child," and "When we are physically separated from our child."  The distinction is helpful when looking for a verse but do not forget that the demarcation is ultimately false.  Mindful parenting embraces and facilitates the belief that we are always connected to our child.
