Dressing Your Truth: Little Miss Tips
The Child Whisperer book by Carol Tuttle has solidified my enthusiasm for Energy Profiling and the Dressing Your Truth program. As I mentioned yesterday, Tips is such a good sport he supported me in purchasing all four programs since we have all four types in our family. We bought our courses in April and then purchased the kids' courses in June. I want to briefly share with you how even just understanding my children's nature and attempting to dress them in their truth to support them has REALLY helped me as a parent and my relationship with my children.
This picture of Miss Tips was taken in March before I ever heard of DYT or EP when we were at Disneyland with my sister. It shouldn't be surprising that I most often have dressed my children in type 1 colors and clothing since I am a type 1 and most children's clothing is type 1 clothing.
This picture of the kids was taken on Easter. I bought this dress for Miss Tips when I was still pregnant with her a full 2 years before I even knew about DYT and before she could even wear it. It screams "TYPE 1!!!" since it is a white dress with bright flowers and polk-a-dots in type 1 colors all over it.
Understanding my daughter's determined, forward pushing movement for the last 6 months has helped me TREMENDOUSLY! I no longer judge her for getting into things or for being so determined to get what she wants. I will not crush her determined spirit by making her feel shame for being herself. I am more accepting of the fact that she will be very vocal and opinionated if things don't go her way. Being aware of the challenges Type 3s face, I am better equipped to help my daughter navigate life in the most supportive manner and fashion. Dressing my daughter in colors and clothing that supports her natural movement is a daily, visual reminder of the gifts my determined, go-getter daughter brings to our family and the world. And I am thankful.
