There is a lot of confusion about how to apply the law of attraction in different situations and one of these is applying it as a parent. One thing I want to stress early on is that being a parent comes with a lot of responsibility.

This responsibility is toward your children. To make sure that they are safe and protected, but also that they grow up as responsible citizens. In other words, as people who can support themselves and make a difference in the world.

But discharging this parenting responsibility, especially if you apply or bring the Law of attraction into the picture, can be quite tricky.

Nowadays, it is very hard for one to listen to the news and not hear about all the terrible things happening in the world. So it follows naturally that parents who also hear these things fear for the safety of their children and want to protect them at all cost, because they don't want anything bad to happen to them.

But trying to protect them physically may not be enough, and may do more harm than good.

What do I mean by this and how does the law of attraction relate to this situation?

The Law of attraction states that whatever you give your attention to expands and is attracted to you. So if you're a parent and you fear for the safety of your children, that very thing that you fear may actually befall them.

So how does a parent apply the law of attraction to ensure their children are safe and protected?

The simple answer is to only focus on those things that you want for your children, and not the things you don't want for them. However for most parents this is difficult to do.

The problem here is that parents have difficulty dealing with their emotions when it comes to the well-being of their children. This is because they love their children so much and this is a perfectly understandable reaction. This is something that not only affects parents but affects all people, who face situations that concern their loved ones.

However the problem with being emotional is this: You don't think straight or make the right decisions, for the simple reason that blood rushes to your brain and impairs your ability to think rationally.

When you are emotional you usually think of the worst things that can happen and generally expects a bad outcome. This is not good for you or your loved ones if you consider that, according to the law of attraction you attract what you give your attention to.

The key then, to making the power of the law of attraction work for you, is to gain control over your emotions. When you can do this you can decide which thoughts to think. In this case you would choose to think thoughts that predict a positive outcome. You would deliberately choose which emotions to feel.

The emotions that make the law of attraction work for you include confidence, peace, joy, acceptance, courage, decisiveness.

The emotions that make the law of attraction work against you are fear, panic, uncertainty, hesitation, indecision and apathy.

But what if you find yourself in a negative environment? If you are surrounded by people or events that focus on the negative, you may have to change your surroundings or remove yourself to a place that feeds your mind positively.

However we all know that parenting is more than just thinking positively and controlling your emotions.

Sometimes you have to stamp your authority and make decisions, some of which may not be popular. But these are things you have to do as a parent.

What do you do when your children do something wrong? You must show them in some way that this is unacceptable but you must also show them that you love them despite this. I personally don't think that there is anything wrong with giving your children a hiding when they mess up, but you must forgive them and love them afterwards.

If your children are grown up you can punish them by witholding something they love.

The key here is to love your children at all times. By acting and punishing them in some way you ensure that you don't hold any negative feelings towards them. Its better to let it out so that they know how you feel about certain things.

When you tell them that certain things are unacceptable, you should also tell them why it is unacceptable.

As your children grow up you should give them more free reign. Let them experience life for themselves and show them the law of attraction at work in their own lives. As you do this they will also start to apply this powerful law in their lives as they too want good things for themselves.

Your children will model themselves after you. And you want to give them a good example by being a strong and loving parent, while all the time applying the law of attraction.
