38: Parenting Myth #2: A Successful Child is Ahead of the Curve – Conscious Parenting Coaches Magaly Medina, Delia Garcia, and Cheryl Polsky

This is one of my favorite parenting myths and has probably made the biggest difference for me in my life personally and as a parent!  Here it is: “a successful child is ahead of the curve.”  Depending on where you are in your parenting journey, you may see this myth for what it is.  Or, maybe you’re like I was and this sounds like a an absolute truth.

This show is the third in our 8-part series on Conscious Parenting the parenting myths Dr. Shefali Tsabary shared in her inspiring book, The Awakened Family.   

To bring this myth to life, we are joined by four Conscious Parenting Coaches who generously share their insights and wisdom: Magaly Medina, MD, Delia Garcia, Cheryl Polsky, and Jen Klein.

If you’re interested in learning more about these amazing coaches, please check out the series webpage at soulpathparenting.com.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • A beautiful story of how living this myth became an awakening and eventually an epiphany that changed everything
  • The double edged sword of “potential.”  (If you love the idea of “potential” as much as I did, you’ll want to hear this!)
  • And, what Justin Timberlake has to do with learning how to parent kids who actually are “ahead of the curve”

About Magaly Medina

Raised and born in PR.  Graduated at 16 years old from a specialized math and science school, finished bachelor degree at 20, entered medical school at 24, Anesthesiologist from NYU at 28.  Working full time since, single mother of a 16 years old, re married.  Found my purpose on the teachings and living as a Conscious Parent, since it transformed my life in such a great way, I can not stop giving away this gift and sharing this message that gave me unprecedented freedom and happiness.  The most life transforming experience ever.  Learning from my coach-ees and patients, every day is a new opportunity for growth, evolve and live a luminous life.

About Delia Garcia

A dreamer, a little bit of a philosopher and a passionate learner. I find human nature fascinating. While studying in my late teens for a Bachelor’s of Marketing Administration, I realized that my real passion was to help people. So after achieving the first degree, I adventured to pursue a second period of four year studies in Psychology. My work experience mainly has been in education, being part of the directive team in our preschool and as a Husband-Coached Childbirth Instructor (The Bradley Method).

When motherhood came along, the world as I’ve known it, changed completely. My three children have made me grow personally and helped me to re encounter with my true self. As a Certified Conscious Parent Coach I want to help parents and parents to be, to find a connection with themselves and in this way create a connection with their children. I believe that in changing the parent-child paradigm, we can all change the world one child at a time.

About Cheryl Polsky

Cheryl Polsky holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and has been certified in the Conscious Parenting Method by Dr. Shefali Tsabary.  As a Certified Life and Parenting Coach, Cheryl helps her clients understand how trauma that has occurred in the past shapes their current reality.  Most people make a vow in childhood not to treat their own children the same way our parents treated us. Unfortunately, we sometimes find ourselves doing exactly that.  In order to be the most effective parent and best version of ourselves, we must understand what motivates our thoughts and actions. 

Cheryl can help use the strengths you have gained through your life experience to heal the pain of the past.  You are an amazing individual as you have done exactly what you needed to do to survive. However, you and your children deserve so much more in this life and it is all available  as you open yourself up to the possibilities. If you would like to jump start your healing and live the life that is yours and your children’s birthright I invite you to schedule a free 30 minute discovery call with Cheryl.
