We at Willing Ways provide the international standard treatment and are known for our results not only in Pakistan but across the borders as well. Our expertise does not end here we are recognized for our ‘counseling for change’ programs. Change that help individuals reach their goals that could not be accomplished because of some defined obstacles. We help remove those obstacles scientifically and hence a miracle happens.

In this video Dr Shefali Tsabary is explaining the importance and role of parenting. She tells that the parents hold a specific responsibility that is of effective parenting since problems of childhood go into adulthood. The child keeps searching, yearning the warmth only parents can give.

In a world which is chaotic and unpredictable, the parent are the lynchpin in creating a better future for their offspring, the childhood is like a foundation on which dreams and ambitions are built. If this is foundation and is full of insecurities and vulnerabilities the whole of the personality of a child and his or her future can come falling down. Thus it is essential to nurture a relationship with our children, brush away their fears, listen to their voice, appreciate and motivate them to make a happy and thriving family unit.

If a child is becoming unruly, disobeys the parents or just isolates itself from the family, that doesn’t mean that the child is bad. It is the role of parents to instill values in the child but some parents are unable to do that because it is not that they are evil but they also come from a place of inner barrenness and desolation. Children internalize the voice of their parents which becomes a blueprint for their personality.

Dr Shefali concludes that we should evolve our parenting paradigm, we as parents should focus on our leadership, our consistency and give children time to choose and not to enforce something on them. We should expand our boundaries since the extent to which we as parents know ourselves is the extent our children will. This way a child will experience the fullness and abundance of mind and spirit.
